Fresh protests were expected in Los Angeles after police shot a man on the tourist-packed Hollywood Walk of Fame, adding another killing to a recent and climbing toll.

Police officers attended one of the most crowded intersections in the city on Friday night, after reports of a man with a knife on Hollywood Boulevard. A man was subsequently shot dead. Some bystanders captured video and pictures of what appeared to be a white man slumped in the road, surrounded by a group of officers with pistols drawn.

The weapon the man was reported to have been brandishing appeared to have been a small Swiss Army-style pocket knife, according to pictures posted by police on social media that showed a numbered crime scene label next to the object.

Shot in the chest by Cleveland police – then handcuffed and fined $100

(Didn't find this when I did a search)

Good God what is happening with the police today............

When a man pointing a Glock pistol approached Gregory Love’s car in downtown Cleveland late one night, Love did the only sensible thing possible, he says: he put up his hands and decided to let the man have what he wanted.

But Vincent Montague shot him in the chest anyway, according to Love, before having the 29-year-old forcibly removed from his silver Range Rover and his hands fastened together behind his back.


The man that shot Love was Cleveland police officer Montague who was suspended for just one day. Love has field a lawsuit.


The lawsuit states that Love and Biggins “had their hands raised above their heads” and avoided “sudden or furtive gestures or movements”, yet Montague pointed his gun and threatened them before leaning into the driver’s window to take the keys from the ignition. Montague insists that Love’s hands were not up and that his right hand remained at his waist. A Vine video filmed by an onlooker appears to show Love raising at least one hand.
