Dumb, violent cops

Watch the video.
TOCCOA - Surveillance video shows 28-year-old Jonathan Ayers entering a convenience store just minutes before he would be shot. Joe Joseph, who owns the Shell station on Currahee Street, says everything seemed normal when Ayers walked in around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.
During the short time that Ayers was in the convenience store, he came straight to an ATM and then he left.

Joe Joseph says within the next two minutes, something very unusual happened. He heard gun shots. "I've never seen anything like that before. You know, I watch movies but this was totally different."

As you can see in the video, a black Escalade truck pulls up next to a pump and before it completely stops, a man jumps out. "I think I heard 3 shots."

The men in the Escalade were undercover drug agents. Joseph says he saw them shooting as Ayers, the young pastor, tried to back up and get away. "He pulled off and they followed." A short time later, Ayers wrecked his car.

"At that time (of the shooting), I had a parking lot full of people. I mean they could have blown up one of my pumps and that would have been a total mess."

There were, of course, no drugs in the car and the young dead man was not a target of any police investigation.

This country just has too many police and too little accountability for their behavior.

Update: Some more information and observation.
