Last night, extensive and extremely violent riots broke out in Philadelphia following a police-involved shooting of a man armed with a knife.
So that everyone can judge the actions of the police for themselves, Reclaiming America is providing two video clips of the shooting. The clips come from the same cellphone camera, but differ as to when in the incident they start and when they end.
Based on what is evident in the videos – a man armed with a knife advancing on police officers – Reclaiming America believes the shooting of the armed man, while tragic, was lawful and appropriate.
However, we invite your opinion of what you see in the videos and ask that you share your opinion in the Comment section.
