Officers arrived on the scene Sunday of a stabbing and shot the assailant 14 times.
“I think it was overkill and it shouldn’t have went that far,” said Carlton Moorehead, the assailant’s father, who claims his son had been suffering from a mental health crisis, and that police wrongly handled the situation. He insisted that police should have tried to deescalate the situation and gotten his son mental health counseling. Nevermind the fact that he was stabbing the innocent woman, whose only crime was walking down the street while your son was getting all stabby.
The NAACP issued a statement following the video’s release, and said they would conduct their own investigation into the incident, because of course they will. After all, we need to support the rights of black men to be able to stab women in the throat without police interference.
