A former University of Cincinnati police officer has recently spoke on killing a unarmed black man during a traffic stop. The officer is seen in a video crying and recalling what happened the night he killed the man. He says during the traffic stop, he asked the man to stop the vehicle. He says that turned into the driver trying to run him over with the car. According to the officer, his arm was stuck in the vehicle and all he thought was ‘this man is trying to kill me.’ When asked why he shot the man in the head, he said that was pretty much all he could see and get to. The officer was also addressed about wearing a shirt with a confederate flag on it.

When asked about the shirt, the officer claimed that the flag actually has no meaning to him. He was asked what was the purpose of him wearing the shirt and he said he bought the shirt 4-5 years ago. The shirt was taken from him while at the hospital. He says the purpose of putting it on was that was a older t-shirt to wear and when you’re working, that is what you want to wear to allow it to get sweaty. Sounds like a load of BS to me.

Check out the encounter below.
