Dashboard footage from a fatal police shooting in Bridgeton, New Jersey confirm eyewitness accounts that the victim was stepping out of the car with his arms raised when officers shot and killed him, the Press of Atlantic City reports.

 
Police in Bridgeton pulled over the car in which Jerame Reid was a passenger on December 30th. Prosecutors said that “during the course of the stop a handgun was revealed and later recovered,” but witnesses said that Officers Braheme Days and Roger Worley opened fire and killed Reid as he was peacefully exiting the vehicle.
 
Tahli Dawkins told the Press of Atlantic City that he watched the officers approaching the car yelling, “Don’t effing move!” and that they opened fire without provocation.
 
Denzel Mosley told KYW-TV that Reid’s hands were “in plain sight,” and that the officers “were telling him, ‘Get out [of] the car,’” then yelling “‘Stop!’ and they started shooting.”
 
Ben Mosley — a retired sheriff’s deputy — said that Reid may have attempted to get back into the car when the officers yelled the contradictory order to “Stop!” but that he did not believe that justified firing upon him.
 
“I saw a disarmed man go down to the ground and get shot,” Mosley said. “That’s exactly what I saw.”
 
The video — obtained by the Press of Atlantic City but not released to the public — confirmed these eye-witness accounts.
 
“Show me your hands. Show me your f—— hands,” Days said, before quickly adding, “Get him out of the car, Rog[er Worley], we got a gun in his glove compartment.”
 
After the gun is retrieved, Days continued to yell at Reid. “I tell you, I’m going to shoot you,” he shouted. “You’re gonna be f—— dead. You reach for something, you’re going to be f—— dead.”
 
Reid then attempted to exit the vehicle with his hands raised, at which point Officer Days yelled, “Don’t you f—— move!” before he and Worley opened fire, discharging their weapons at least six times.
 
Conrad Benedetto, the attorney for the Reid family, said after viewing the video on Tuesday that “you see that there was no threat to the officer, and no weapons in the victim’s hands.”
 
Walter Hudson, chair and founder of the civil rights group the National Awareness Alliance, said that “the video speaks for itself that at no point was Jerame Reid a threat and he possessed no weapon on his person. He complied with the officer and the officer shot him.”

WARNING: NSFW!

 

 

Just insane how this keeps happening. The cop on the right essentially threatened to kill the guy for moving. The cop threatened to “kill” him the entire time. Not “shoot” him or anything non-fatal, no. The cop made up his mind from the very beginning that he was going to shoot and kill this man…

 
I’ve also seen people suggesting the victim rushed the cop, but if you look at the video, the victim clearly exited the car with his hands up. The cop shot him within seconds of him exiting the car…no excuse or reason when the guys hands appear to be empty and raised at chest level in the standard “I give up/I surrender” position.

Putting them up at chest level doesn't suggest anything, if I were that cop I would have shot him too. He should have never gotten out of the car and looking at the video you can see the guy all over the place inside the vehicle. Any life loss is tragic, it's too late to speculate what could have happened but from what I saw the perpetrator wasn't cooperating with the officer.

Did we not watch the same video? They found a gun in the glove box and instead of asking if either men had a permit they simply seized it. At about 1:07 of the video one of the cops tells the other to get the guy out of the car. Then the guy tries to get out and the cop(s?) tell him not to move. With a gun pointed at me and a cop telling me he's going to kill me...I would straight up panic.

 

Also, not cooperating shouldn't automatically allow a cop to shoot someone, especially if they're hands are raise, unarmed and NOT rushing...

This topic has already been discussed in the Mike Brown thread...

 

stop being a lemming. This dude was previously arrested and spent 13 years in prison for... wait for it... SHOOTING AT THE POLICE.

 

He had a gun in the dash, and disobeyed commands from the officer who just so happened to know him personally. If you're told to stay in the car a dozen times, and told that if you get of the car you'll be shot/killed... Why would you get out of the car?

 

Can you criminal sympathizers find better people to make martyrs? 

 

 

Edit: Jesus Christ... I just read your summary of what you "think" happened. Absolutely awful that people think the way you do. You couldn't have interpreted the events more incorrectly.

I can only go off of what the article posted, considering that's my (current) source;

 

 

“Show me your hands. Show me your f—— hands,” Days said, before quickly adding, “Get him out of the car, Rog[er Worley], we got a gun in his glove compartment.”

 
After the gun is retrieved, Days continued to yell at Reid. “I tell you, I’m going to shoot you,” he shouted. “You’re gonna be f—— dead. You reach for something, you’re going to be f—— dead.”

At the end of the day, my question is simple: why were the police so trigger happy when he had nothing in his hands? Also, the "Mike Brown" thread could use a better title if it's going to contain discussions outside of the title topic.

I was wondering why the officer was calling him "Jerome," it seemed a bit odd but that explains it all.

 

To be fair, the media is usually on sided vs being impartial especially right now with all the recent controversy.

In before this turns into a "If he was a white guy" conversation.
