Eric Harris Shot and Killed By Police, His Cries of Losing Breath Met With "Fuck Your Breath" by Officer [Raw Video]

The killing of Black men in America by officers must stop. This has become an epidemic. While there are officers around the country that understand how to follow protocol and procedure...this does not negate the fact there are many officers that fail to honor the badge or their oath to protect and serve.

There is a disturbing trend that is embedded within these cases...the officers in question don't care or stop to think about deliberately ending a Black man's life...even with the knowledge that their life wasn't in jeopardy at the time of the shooting.

The officer in the video that stated "Fuck your breath" should be fired should the officer who fired the shot, yet claimed he thought it was his taser.

The video is difficult to watch as you hear Eric Harris' screams upon realizing he was shot and telling the officers he was losing his breath while another officer had his knee on Eric Harris' neck.

This shit is ridiculous and unacceptable.

My prayers and condolences go out to Eric Harris' family.
