    can't put the video up but I guess he threw a few rocks then ran away they shot him while he was running away and turning with his hands out to beg for mercy.

    Video footage of police gunning down a 35-year-old homeless man on February 10, 2015 shows the man with his hands in the air, attempting to surrender, moments before police fired multiple shots, ending his life.

    For the fourth time in six months, police in Pasco, Washington used lethal force against a citizen. The latest shooting victim, Antonio Zambrano-Montes leaves behind two teenage daughters, who say their father was suffering from depression after being separated from them for unknown reasons.

    The video, credited to Dario Zuniga, was uploaded to youtube by ceeloc187 on Wednesday, February 11. It shows Zambrano-Montes toss a stone at police officers, then turn and begin to run away. A series of gun shots can be heard as the man tries to flee. Police then pursue him across the street in front of a crowd of witnesses, gunning him down on the sidewalk, even as he raises his arms above his head in an obvious attempt to surrender.

    Several witnesses, including Zuniga, captured the shooting on video.

    Your thread title says Albuquerque, but the article says Washington State.

    I read another article recently about the Albuquerque force. It's very disturbing.

    This was awful to watch, so graphic! Between these types of ultra-violent police shootings (ahem snuff)videos and those lunatics at isis, i am going to stop watching the news, preferring to read articles from the guardian - with the likes of how fascist middle county mayors dictate which plants one can plant in their quaint, frontside gardens, and how a certain chelsea it girl is so hard done by as her cruel, callous, cold, capricious, misogynist father only buys her half a dozen ponies!

    Actually, think i will stick with Macrumors, Nature, and the NEJM :p

    I am surprised no one is saying this is justified.

    You mean you think it's justified? That's disgusting.

    I don't think that's what he implied.

    Either you or I completely misread his message.

    I hope not. That was a seriously disturbing video. I can't imagine anyone, given the evidence so far, thinking what happened was justified.

    From what I saw, the homeless man did not deserve to get shot. I live in Albuquerque, and I do have to say that some of them are out of control but one does not make them all...

    OP, might want to edit the title, you spelled "runing" incorrectly.

    How did that guy get to be a policeman? The way he was acting, you would think he was hunting a rabbit.
