We are barely into the second month of this new year 2017 but police have already started working hard at their main objective. That is, of course, to incarcerate or eliminate as many African American males as they can justify. This bodycamera footage, released by the Baltimore Police Department, came at the end of a chase between Detective David Kincaid Jr and Curtis Deal, 18, in West Baltimore on Tuesday.Police say Deal, who was out on $250,000 bond, jumped out of a car Kincaid was following on Tuesday and ran. Kincaid cut the youth off as he exited an alley and fired shots indiscriminately.
As seen in the video Deal comes sprinting out of the alley. The officer shouts for the young man to stop, and raises his sidearm. At precisely the same time, Deal – looking afraid – raises his arm in submission at Kincaid.
The bodycam is conveniently pointed away from Deal as the four fatal shots are fired. Footage returns as Deal tumbles to the ground, life slipping away from him. Deal did not fight or pose a threat to the officer. Kincaid calls in shots fired as another cop approaches Deal. The young man tries to get up briefly, but both police force him not to move. Curtis Deal was hit in the abdomen, hip and finger, and died of his injuries after arriving to the hospital. Kincaid, the policeman who killed the young teenager, was set on paid administrative leave during the ongoing investigation. This incident caused Baltimore residents to rally protests and has sparked a renewed interest in the Black Lives Matter movement across the country.
