Extremely graphic video of a police officer shooting and killing a former body builder, Mr. El Paso, who was resisting arrest because he was supposedly high on bath salts. Officer Jose Flores shot dead former Mr. El Paso, Daniel Saenz, 37, after a struggle outside a city jail. Flores wasn’t charged because the shooting was deemed accidental in that the guard bumped his trigger finger causing him to discharge his weapon. What do you think about this scenario? Brute force? Or crap happens?
Via Daily Mail:
The footage dates from March 8, 2013 and was released by the Texas Attorney General to the El Paso Times who wanted to see the video after a grand jury refused to charge Officer Flores with any crime in February.
Indeed, less than six weeks before the violent death of his prisoner, Flores had become something of a media sensation after being caught on camera buying boots and socks for a cold and hungry 83-year-old homeless man.
