Black Male ‘Karen’ Shot Useless By Phoenix Police . . . For Attempting To Carry out ‘Residents Arrest’!!
Being a “Karen” can be fatal, especially if you’re black, MTO News learned. Earlier this month, a black man who attempted a civil arrest in Phoenix was shot dead by police, MTO News learned.
And the incident is recorded with the police body cam.
This incident began when a 39-year-old African American named William Brookins witnessed two people shoplifting from a clothing store. Instead of minding his own business or keeping the shop safe, William took the law into his own hands.
Police say William pulled a gun at the two people he claims were shoplifting and attempted a “citizen arrest”.
According to the Phoenix police officer who arrived at the scene, he watched William Brookins aim a gun at a man and a woman and immediately mistook the Good Samaritan for a criminal.
The officer was in full uniformed, worked off duty and had just finished his shift with traffic control at a nearby intersection when he heard a loud commotion and watched Brookins point a gun at a man and a woman.
At this point, the officer approached on foot, drew his service weapon, and claimed that he told William to drop his weapon. William did not react quickly enough to the orders and the officer shot him.
William was rushed to hospital but died on June 8, MTO News confirmed
