On January 18, 2016, Mesa Police Department officer Philip Brailsford shot and killed Daniel Leetin Shaver of Granbury, Texas in the hallway of a La Quinta Inn & Suites hotel.
Sgt. Charles Langley and Brailsford responded to a 911 call claiming that a man was pointing a rifle out a window at the La Quinta Inn in Mesa, AZ.
I want you to watch one of the most outrageous and infuriating videos I’ve ever seen. It shows the police shooting of Shaver. He was crawling on his hands and knees, crying, and begging police not to shoot him. An officer shot him anyway:
It is important to note that the voice you hear barking commands at Shaver isn’t Brailsford’s voice. That’s Sgt. Langley, who maintains an intensity level of 15 on a scale of one to 10 throughout the interaction even though Shaver continues to follow every instruction.
