A bystander caught it on video for the NY Post.
How many helpless people are the California cops going to murder before the state and city governments reign in their rapid dogs? This is far from the first time this has happened. It's not rocket science: require body cams that the rabid dogs cannot circumvent, and take control of investigations of officer shootings away from the police departments. These guys know that it won't be their BFFs investigating their murders anymore, maybe they'll think before shooting.
The department claimed that officers attempted to detain him, alleging he ignored commands and “threatened to advance or throw the knife at the officers”, although the limited witness footage did not capture this. The department further said that officers “deployed two separate Tasers in an attempt to subdue the suspect”, but when “the Tasers were ineffective”, they shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The LA sheriff’s department, which is investigating the killing, said in an initial statement that Lowe attempted to “throw the knife at the officers”, but a spokesperson later told the LA Times that Lowe “did not throw the knife ultimately, but he made the motion multiple times over his head like he was going to throw the knife”. The spokesperson also said that two officers had fired roughly 10 rounds at Lowe, who was hit in the torso. The Huntington Park department does not use body cameras.
Emphasis mine. No bodycam footage means you can't trust the police narrative.
