Seattle Seahawks star Michael Bennett claims Vegas police threatened to kill him

  Seattle Seahawks star Michael Bennett claims Vegas police threatened to kill him Seattle Seahawks star Michael Bennett has claimed police threatened to shoot him last month in Las Vegas for "being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time".Seattle Seahawks star Michael Bennett has claimed police threatened to shoot him last month in Las Vegas for "being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time".

The officer involved in the shooting was a black police officer , and he had his body camera on at the time of the shooting . The suspect , Sylville Smith, 23, was indeed black , but he wasn’t shot while just running away.

So a black officer , with a good reputaion, shot an armed black man and Black Lives Matter activists are attacking whites and blaming white "f'ing devils." We need a protest over a black officer shooting and armed black suspect ????!!??

Assistant Chief Constable Alex Murray said: “What was said was not right and the officer has been removed from front line duties pending further assessment.

“The officer has already expressed remorse and is very apologetic over his comments.

“We expect the highest standards of behaviour from all our officers and staff, and we will always take complaints from members of the public seriously.”

  Coventry Police Officer Jokes About Shooting Black Suspect And Mocks Black Lives Matter © Facebook Chambers said: “They said they were there for a wanted person - but I think they’re just harassing me.

“I was at a friend’s house, at first I was nervously laughing and then I realised it’s not actually that funny.

“A black man had just been killed by police days before in America, so I just carried on smiling out of nerves really and didn’t mess about.

“But I was actually pretty intimidated, his comments were racist - he was mocking a whole movement [Black Lives Matter].”

Desmond Jaddoo, a Birmingham-based community activist, told the Coventry Telegraph: “My concern as an activist is, taking into account the current climate and deaths in custody and also community relations, this goes no way in building trust and confidence with the police.

“I would also say, I see this not being a hate crime but other criminality. As far as I’m concerned these are serious matters. Police officers are there to set an example. Their behaviour must be beyond reproach.

“You do not make flippant statements about serious issues which affect communities. This is not locker room banter.”
