Unarmed Black Man Killed by Police in Arizona

Cop Kills Unarmed Black Man in Arizona

Rumain Brisbon, an unarmed Black father of four, was shot to death in Arizona Tuesday when a police officer apparently mistook his bottle of pills for a gun. About 100 protestors marched to police headquarters in Phoenix Thursday, demanding the department release the name of the officer who shot Brisbon. A spokesperson reportedly defended the shooting, saying, "This one went bad from the standpoint of how it ended, but the officer was doing exactly what we want him to do."

Parts of the official police story have been challenged by some witnesses, the Arizona Republic reports.
