Man Executed by Police Firing Squad Today in San Francisco.

This execution took place earlier today (Wednesday, Dec 2nd) in the Bayview District of San Francisco. The video was originally posted to Instagram by “daniggahot” and through a succession of tweets made its way to Shaun King who, as far as I know, was the first to embed the video in a tweet, that which you can view below.

The man is alleged to have had a knife. Why a lone man with what must have been a small knife (it is hardly visible, if at all, in the video) would require a large number of police all intent on gunning him down is unanswered. San Francisco police claim to have fired less-lethal weapons at him but how multiple police firing less-lethals could not manage to subdue a single individual is bizarre.
