Police shoot young man 8 times in the BACK OF THE HEAD claiming he pointed gun at them
There are few media reports at this time about the alleged police murder of 26-yr-old Amos G. Smith who was shot eight times in the back of the head in early March of this year by Union City, California police officers who claimed he had a gun and pointed it at them.
The two officers involved claim they were pulling over Mr. Smith in a routine traffic stop (Driving While Black?) and that he pointed a gun at them at which point they shot the young man 8 times in the back of the head. I mean really, was he pointing the gun at them over his shoulder while facing away from them? There has been no report of a gun being recovered from the scene.
Smith’s family and fellow church members described him as someone who was active in the church working with youth and worked really hard saving his money to buy an 18 wheeler truck after obtaining his Class A license. Reverend Macklin of New Sweet Home Church of God in Christ who was the young man’s pastor said he could not believe the news because of “who Amos was,” and his “lifestyle,” explaining that Smith was a “church going young man.”
