Police have said officers were responding to a call about a man “slumped over” in his car at a Taco Bell, and that when they arrived, they found him “unresponsive”. The department alleged that six officers all fired their weapons at McCoy out of “fear for their own safety” when he “quickly moved his hands downward” for a handgun in his lap.


Wow. Responding to call with guns drawn for unresponsive person. No report of a weapon from the caller.

Something fishy.

How does he let 6 officers roll up on him patrol lights and all, and still consciously think of grabbing a gun? Whether it's in his lap or not.

fu*k crooked cops if there is still such a thing, you know with all the technology they have now to get busted.

But at the same time it's not easy being a cop. They should change the way they're trained tho, it's too militarized.

Only if you're drunk and the keys are in the ignition. Although I'm not sure if that's in every state.

Willie McCoy, the 20-year-old rapper k*lled by Vallejo police, did not appear to be awake when officers began shooting him inside his car, according to family members who viewed police footage of the k*lling on Wednesday.

McCoy, whose death at a Taco Bell drive-through sparked national outrage, seemed to move his hand in his sleep to scratch his shoulder before the six officers opened fire and k*lled him with a barrage of bullets, his family told the Guardian shortly after watching the video.

“They k*lled him in his sleep,” said David Harrison, McCoy’s cousin, who was one of three relatives to watch the body-camera footage of the 9 February k*lling. “He scratched his arm in his sleep … And they murdered him. There is no justification.”

Vallejo officials brought the family in to show them the footage for the first time on Wednesday afternoon, but barred their attorney from viewing it and have not released any videos.

A police spokesperson told the Guardian that McCoy “was not sleeping during the entire incident”, writing in an email: “He woke up on his own and sat up, reach [sic] for the handgun when the officers told him to show them his hands, then the officers fired.” The spokesperson refused to share the video.

The family said the close-up footage of the encounter contradicted parts of the police department’s narrative.

Police have said officers were responding to a call about a man “slumped over” in his car at a Taco Bell, and that when they arrived, they found him “unresponsive”. The department alleged that six officers all fired their weapons at McCoy out of “fear for their own safety” when he “quickly moved his hands downward” for a handgun in his lap.

But Marc McCoy, Willie’s older brother who also watched the footage, said he didn’t see Willie open his eyes, he did not at any point appear to be alert, and he may have groggily moved just before he was k*lled. The officers were also calmly talking to each other before the shooting and did not seem to make any attempt to wake him up or give any orders until the movement of his hand to scratch himself, Marc said: “They never looked threatened. They never feared for their lives … There was never any attempt to resolve this in a peaceful way.”

“There was no way Willie was leaving there that day, period. He wasn’t going to leave alive. They made their minds up,” added the 48-year-old, who helped raise Willie.

Witness footage filmed from a distance that spread days after the k*lling captured a sudden and rapid succession of bullets over a few seconds, followed by the officers shouting: “Let me see your hands! Put your hands up!”

The officers never tried to make it clear to Willie that they were police, added Marc. At the meeting Wednesday, he asked the officials what their protocol was for this kind of situation, and they said “their process was to de-escalate”, he recalled.

“They did not de-escalate. They caused violence,” Marc said.

The police spokesperson did not respond to the Guardian’s questions about the family’s recollection of the officers’ actions and comments on the video.

Police officials also told the family the shooting was justified and the officers were back on duty, according to the family. Harrison said he asked if the officers were drug-tested after the shooting, and that the officials responded that the department did not do that.

Melissa Nold, the family’s lawyer who waited outside while they watched the footage Wednesday, said it seemed the video raised new questions about the police tactics when they approached the car: “It doesn’t sound like there was any plan in place … You can’t just shoot somebody when they move.”

Considering their descriptions of the footage, Nold added: “I don’t know if Willie ever knew what was happening. I think he was gone before he ever would have had an understanding.”

Relatives who viewed Willie’s body previously said it appeared he had been hit by be roughly 25 shots, including in his face, throat, chest, ear and arms.

Willie was a beloved rapper in the Bay Area, and his friends and collaborators have said his career was taking off when police k*lled him.

“I understand why they don’t want attorneys to see it and why they don’t want to release it to the public,” Harrison said about the footage, adding: “It did not look like someone was scared for their lives … They had intentions to k*ll Willie, that’s what I’ve seen in that video.”

If he wasn't already a criminal, he would have eventually became one. No big loss here.

Gotta pretty much throw the keys in the trunk in some states or they'll still get you with a DUI.

I've only respected one and that's my aunt. Her department gave her her own office because they hate her but can't fire her because she has an amazing record and that would cause an investigation. She got a few cops fired for corruption and was reprimanded because she didn't arrest an innocent black man. They also hate her because she's loved and respected on the hood and tries to help them out. And she loves arresting rich spoiled brats too. Other than her, like Gza said, it's father u c k the police.

On "private property" it is. Not defending it, because I think it's stupid. I remember coming from my base, and heading home. But had been up for 28 hours. I pulled over in an empty parking lot, at around 11pm. No one really around, but of course a cop came up to my window. An asked "what I was doing?". Which I explained, and pointed at my uniform in the back (probably, why he didn't press further). I just left and pulled over at a QT, and took some ZZZ's.

My intuition tells me these officers(n officers like them) are klansmen by night cops by day

We'd be super naive not to think the kkk
has infiltrated many police forces across the nation
