After a man opens fire inside a Connecticut school, scores of police converged on Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. and parents rushed to the scene. Authorities say 26 people were killed, including 18 children. (Dec. 14)
Sterling: I noticed that many of these black men being shot by police in the past few years are large men, that is they are over 6' and probably over 250lbs. This El Cajon guy, the Ferguson guy and the Louisiana guy were big. Eric Garner in NYC was a big guy and it took 6 cops to wrestle him down, sadly he died anyway without being shot. Two average sized cops don't want to tussle with these extremely large guys and apparently Tasers have little or no affect on them. It would be better if these guys just did what they are told by the police.
