#WiFiKemistry LAPD shoots and kills #homeless man on video! How #SocialMedia Influences Police Actions!

Revolution News posted a Graphic video recorded and uploaded to Facebook just 5 hours ago shows LAPD shooting a homeless man. Lots of graphic language in this raw video by spectators. We are waking up to see this in Nigeria. We heard these shots here and it is making the headlines of every paper here. Social media has changed everything when people upload these graphic evidence to social media portals. In the beginning it was the cameras that captured Rodney King being beaten by LAPD but that video was handed to a lawyer and the world saw it. Now the world can upload it to almost 50 portals on social media. 

It is currently unknown why officers engaged with the victim or his current condition. Details are few, but we are presenting it for your judgment and will update when they are available.

KTLA5 reports: Officers were dispatched to the area of East Sixth Street and South San Pedro Street (map) about 11:36 a.m. after a report of an altercation between two people, said Officer Jack Richter, spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

After the officers arrived a struggle ensued, during which police tazed a man, the LAPD said. The man was then shot by police, the department said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
