Another "Firing Squad Dressed In Police Uniforms"

A community prayer vigil for Hall.

Again?! Milton Hall of Saginaw, Michigan died last month when police fired between 30 and 46 shots into him outside a strip mall after Hall argued with a store clerk. He was carrying a small knife. He was black, poor, and mentally ill. He was known to police, having been jailed for minor offenses like vagrancy, but was not violent and everyone in the community evidently knew that. The Justice Department is investigating. Video from a bystander. Warning: graphic. Again.

"It appeared to be a firing squad dressed in police uniforms," said his mother Jewel Hall. "There was another way. They did not have to kill him. He had not done anything."
