Naked man, shot killed in apartment complex - Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5

Despite the title, this story is SFW. But...it's another story of a white police officer killing an unarmed black man. This time, it happened right here in metro Atlanta.

Brace yourselves...

What a sad story. The way we've left the men and women who fought our wars to fend for themselves after coming home will be the darkest history of the generation that sent them there.

And there's no point in debating the details of the story, because someone will surely come along to twist the circumstances to fit their interpretation of events. But if a cop should ever be able to tell that a man is unarmed and possibly mentally ill, it should be when he is naked, crawling on all fours.

Yeah usually going in the buff makes it awfully difficult to hide a weapon.

The place probably had 20 police visible from the street a couple hours after the shooting. I figured that was what it had to be with that many officers.
