Shooting of Charleena Lyles

Shooting of Charleena Lyles --- ===

June 18, 2017 1 killed in apparent suicide by cop / mental crisis Shooting of Charleena Lyles Pregnant black mother in Seattle with mental issues and known for provoking trouble with cops is shot after she  called police to report an attempted burglary at her home on Sunday morning,and refuses to put down a knife. Her father disputed suicide-by-cop theories purporting that Charleena Lyles tried to get officers to kill her. He addressed speculation that his daughter sought to commit suicide by cop. "My daughter loved life," he said. "There's no way she would have called police over to kill her." One officer   he did not carry his Taser during his shift June 18, when the shooting occurred, according to interview transcripts released by Seattle police. Protested by black lives crowds. The Seattle Police Department's Force Review Board has found the fatal shooting ofCharleena Lyles by two officers in June to be reasonable [1]  A review concluded taser, batons and pepper spray weren’t feasible alternatives when attacked with one or two knives before they opened fire. No evidence of a burglary was ever found.[2]

The story was promoted by leftwing pro-Russian propaganda media including  counterinformation [5] counterpunch [6] in "The Body Count Rises in the U.S. War Against Black People" by Ajamu Baraka 2016 candidate for vice president on the Green Party ticket and Global Research [7]


Similar see Shooting of Philando Castile in Minnesota he and girlfriend insist he was not reaching for gun and body language did not present threat to force cop to shoot him - but if that was a lie then it was suicide by cop.
