Unprovoked Dallas Cops Shoot Mentally Ill Man [VIDEO]

A mentally ill knife-wielding Dallas man was shot Monday by an officer of that city’s police department.

According to the YouTube channel Latest Breaking News:

On Oct. 14, Bobby Gerald Bennett of Dallas, 59, of Dallas, Texas began acting erratically. While Bennett sat in a swivel chair in the middle of the cul de sac holding a knife, his mother, Joyce Jackson, called the police and asked the dispatcher to send officers who were trained in dealing with the mentally ill.

But when police arrived at 12:19 p.m., both officers quickly drew their weapons. One of the officers then fired four shots at Bennett, striking him once in the abdomen.

According to the press release issued by Dallas police Sgt. Warren Mitchell immediately after the shooting, Bennett “made statements indicating that he was not going to cooperate with the officers” and that “the incident escalated which led an officer to fire his weapon upon the individual.”

According to Bunch, the police were “trying to kill” Bennett.

Watch for yourself and let me know in the comments below if it seems to you that the shooting was justifiable.
