Woman pleads with police not to shoot unarmed Black man kneeling in viral video. In an intense exchange, a woman can be heard pleading with police to put down their guns aimed squarely at an unarmed Black man who was on his knees.
She cries while begging officers from the Hawthorne Police Department not to shoot the man in front of her as she records. Instagram user Blueasdasky, posted the video that has gone viral on social media involving the arrest of a young man in Hawthorne, California two days ago.
The video lasts about 5-minutes with the woman screaming at officers who are pointing their weapons at the man who is on his knees with his hands behind his head, Heavy.com reports. The woman begs for officers to simply approach the man and arrest him, instead of shooting him from afar. The woman explained that her boyfriend was previously shot by police, and she didn’t want to see another Black man get killed.
She saved this young man's life!
3 of these men killed 30 people. 3 of them killed no one. Look at the differences in the mugshot.
