Now Elizabeth City, N.C.
« on: April 26, 2021, 01:02:24 PM »

Trouble brewing in Elizabeth City.
Shooting occurred last Wednesday and it sounds like they expect the bodycam footage to flare things up.
State of emergency declared

Quote
Brown, a 42-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by deputies who had approached him to serve search and arrest warrants.

As The Associated Press reported:

"Recordings of scanner traffic compiled by broadcastify.com from the morning of the shooting include emergency personnel indicating that Brown was shot in the back. An eyewitness has said that deputies fired shots at Brown as he tried to drive away, and a car authorities removed from the scene appeared to have multiple bullet holes and its back windshield shattered."

Sharpton told The Associated Press that he wants to both celebrate Brown’s life and help call attention to larger problems with policing that need to be addressed.

The guy had something like a 180 page rap sheet. Yeah, lets celebrate his life

Cue the riots

No charges for deputies in Andrew Brown Jr. shooting, district attorney says
The officers were "justified" in using deadly force, the district attorney said.

Womble said the officers fired a total of 14 shots from two Glock 17 handguns and an AR-15 223 rifle after Brown allegedly used his car as a deadly weapon. He said Meads fired the first shot through the front windshield of Brown's car, and that other bullets penetrated the passenger side front door, the rear window and trunk.
Not saying whether it is justified, but driving a car toward LEO's (or in their general direction) has justified a lot of shootings in the past.  I wouldn't expect this to be different. 

Quote
Womble said an autopsy by the state Medical Examiner's Office showed Brown was shot twice, once in the shoulder and once in the back of the head.

Brown's family and their attorneys commissioned an independent autopsy they say shows he was shot five times, including once in the back of the head.
That is a big difference.  Where did three extra bullet wounds come from?  Or is this just bad information of one kind or another.

Yet crickets for John Crawford III.  And not much more than that for Philando Castile.

Probably timing for Castile.  If that had happened this month, it might be different as far as public reaction.
