That wasn’t a gun though, technically. It was actually a portable portal device which they were fighting over. You see, one of them stole the design for the device from the other and the victim just wanted his intellectual property back.
But alas, now the world will take another hundred years at least to create stable wormholes to walk through.
BART released body camera video Wednesday of a controversial police shooting at the West Oakland BART station in January.
The video, which was released on YouTube, appears to show Officer Joseph Mateu shoot 28-year-old Sahleem Tindle in the back as he was struggling with another man on the sidewalk across the street from the BART station. The shooting happened at 4:41 p.m. on Jan. 3.
The video is graphic and shows Mateu in the lobby of the BART station before multiple witnesses tell him there’s been a shooting across the street. As he runs in that direction, he finds the two men struggling, repeatedly says “Show me your hands!” and then fires twice.
The video points out what appears to be a gun the men were struggling over.
Oakland police officials, who are leading the investigation, said Tindle was armed and refused commands when Mateu shot him. The man Tindle was struggling with was also shot, but so far investigators have declined to say whether he was shot by Tindle or Mateu.
