The question is: Why are we simply obligated to take this shit?
On August 30, 2010, John T. Williams, a Native American woodcarver, was walking across the street carrying his carving knife and a small piece of wood when he was shot four times by Officer Ian Birk of the Seattle Police Department.
Police say Officer Ian D. Birk’ yelled three times for him to drop a knife and Williams did not. William’s was deaf in his left ear.
John T. Williams died. The shooting was ruled “unjustified” by the police department’s Firearms Review Board.
King County prosecutors have decided not to file criminal charges against Seattle police Officer Ian Birk in the fatal shooting of woodcarver John T. Williams.
