The news is out: [A Florida sergeant has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly threatened to shoot an unarmed black man who wouldn’t identify himself.
Janak Amin of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office pointed his gun at the unidentified man who had left DACCO Behavioral Health Center, a mental health facility, after he was inadvertently taken there from an HCSO detention center, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
The man was taken into custody, but refused to give his name to officials. During the incident, police said, Amin pulled out his gun and “threatened (the man’s) life.”
“The individual in custody was not armed and made no aggressive actions toward any Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputies,” police said.
Other police officers who responded to the call were able to “de-escalate” the situation and identify the man.
“There is no question, this incident is detestable and not representative of who we are as a law enforcement agency,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement.]
An almost daily occurrence is not representative of who cops are? How many unarmed civilians must die because of the ego of cops.
