8 White Cops Fired 46 Bullets at 1 Black Homeless Man [Video]

A video obtained by the ACLU shows a black homeless man being shot to death by eight cops while holding a small folding knife.

Milton Hall, 49, was described as a “mentally ill African-American man” who worked as a  “community worker, and he was always there speaking out for those whom he considered the weak, for those who did not have the strength to speak for themselves.”

In July of 2012 in Saginaw, Michigan, Hall was filmed holding a pocket knife after arguing with police about a fight he’d had with a store clerk.

During the video, eight officers approached Hall and demanded that he drop the small knife, but he refused. After a span of about 10 seconds, the officers opened fire on Hall.

In total, they fired 46 bullets at the mentally disturbed homeless man. He was hit 14 times.

Officers can also be seen attempting to handcuff a clearly dead Hall.

“For him to be shot at 46 times and hit 14 times by all white policemen, it really raised questions in my mind. How they circled him and assassinated him,” said Jewel Hall during an ACLU interview. “One policeman, after he was on the ground, turned him over, handcuffed him, and put his foot on his back.”

She added: “And he wasn’t a threat, I mean, he had a little penknife. He had no idea that those policemen would do that to him.”

Eric Holder’s Justice Department investigated the case and said it failed to find“sufficient evidence of willful misconduct.”

    IT’S hard to believe this is real because no rational person can look at this video and in any way justify shooting a clearly disturbed man standing against 8 armed officers in broad daylight.
    THIS is the reality of what we as black people must deal with and except, we live in a country that has absolutely no value on black people’s live’s.
    THE justice that we recieve in this country will be the justice that we take for ourselves because as you can see from this video  our summary executions on the street is legal here in AMERICA.
    AT some point we as a people have to form some kind of organized physical resistance because that’s all that’s left and it’s the language of our oppressor, this is why everytime I hear about a pig getting killed I jump with joy!

    It’s disgraceful, but unsurprising. That is the law enforcement that we are supposed to be dealing with in today’s world. 

    Anyone with a rational mind would wonder what threat a homeless man with a small knife would hold to armed policemen. But racism is not rational.

    That’s so heartbreaking. Poor man.   It’s as though the Pigs let loose all their pent up hatred of Black men on that one poor soul.   Sickening!

    It’s official now.., huh? Throwback policing

  8. BigWood says:

    Until or unless Black men grow so courage to fight back this will not only continue but get much worst. Pigs are starting to realize since BM won’t retaliate when they slaughter a Black man they will up the ante and start murdering BW and Black children. A firefight on the streets against Pigs that are heavily armed and trained is not a prudent thing to do however, my father always says “there’s more than one way to skin a cat”.

    These are animals and I mean animals. wicked so called men and all proven to be cowards and yet they want you to feel bad when one of them are shot down like a rabid dog. well there are a lot of people tired of animals killing their sons, and now daughters. mothers and fathers. I believe in a eye for eye. and this is the reason why stay in at night and avoid the animal at all cost. just consider me as a trigger igger or whatever you want. I’m not telling anyone to break the law. but I will tell everyone to protect yourself at all cost. do not start trouble and obey their laws but protect yourself if anyone is trying to take your life.
