Texas Police Kill Unarmed Man Before Confiscating Witness Camera and Deleting Images

September 17, 2012

Police in Texas shot an unarmed man 41 times, then turned around and confiscated another man’s camera after he started taking photos and shooting video of the bloody aftermath.

Dallas-area cops then deleted the man’s footage before returning the camera four days later.

    This is really confusing. There is a difference between the Dallas, Mesquite and Garland Police Departments. The ones listed are 3 different cities in Texas. they are NOT in the same jurisdiction.

      It was Dallas area” police.
      And to quote the article, Mesquite police are conducting the criminal investigation, which hopefully includes whether or not Tuter acted lawfully, and Garland police are conducting the internal investigation.”
      Do you honestly believe these two jurisdictions can actually work together???
