Double amputee shot to death because cop thought prosthetic arm was. A weapon

Today a Texas mentally iIl double amputee is dead because when the police responded to the halfway house he was residing at the man was waving his prosthetic arm, so the cop yelled weapon and he was shot to death.

A mentally ill man with one prosthetic arm and one prosthetic leg,sitting in a wheelchair was shot dead for basically pointing! I have four close friends who are amputees,  and yes some prosthetics look almost space age but since when does having a carbon fibre and steel limb earn you the death sentence?.

Shame on the Texas cop  who pulle the trigger,and it was revealed the cop shot someone else in questionable circumstances in 2009 what was their crime? Skin blemishes, rosacea?

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
