Video Released of Shooting

Police dash-cam video has been released of a Seattle shooting that left a deaf man dead. The video (below) does not show the actual shooting, but the policeman can be heard shouting, “Hey, put the knife down.” John T. Williams, who was a woodcarver, did not drop the knife, so police officer Ian D. Dirk shot him 5 times. The firearms review board held that the shooting was not justified and Officer Birk has quit.
