Police Shoot Mentally Ill Man

Police shot a mentally ill man after his mother called and ask 911 them to send someone trained in working with the mentally ill. Two police officers arrived and promptly shot the poor soul. As is frequently the case in many of these videos I post the police account of the incident bears no resemblance to the video. According to police Bobby Gerald Bennett said he wanted them to shoot him. Bennett was told to drop a weapon he supposedly had in his hand, ignored orders and “took several steps toward them with the knife raised in an aggressive manner.”
That's a patent lie as his neighbor's video proves. The officer who did the shooting has been placed on indefinite leave and a criminal investigation is under way. Bennet did survive.
