A tense situation exists in my hometown of Baton Rouge. Two police officers confronted a black male who was selling CDs late at night outside a convenience store. The confrontation escalated, a fight broke out, the police officers apparently felt threatened as the fellow they were trying to subdue had a gun, and shoots were fired. The 37 year old male is now dead. So what happened? I wrote about this tragedy in this week’s column and you can watch the graphic video of the shooting below.
