*What's the matter with the trigger happy USA police! They're not
content with shooting unarmed black people so they now kill an unarmed
deaf and dumb man*
A father who is deaf and mute has been shot dead by police after trying
to communicate with them using sign language.
Daniel Kevin Harris, 29, was pulled over for a speeding violation in
North Carolina last Thursday when he was driving towards his home.
Officers tried to pull him over but he continued to drive until he
reached his address, engaging the police in a brief pursuit.
On pulling up at his home, he stepped out of the car and started signing
to state trooper Jermaine Saunders.
Saunders fired a shot at Mr Harris, who was unarmed and died at the scene.
Witnesses described him using his arms to try and communicate with
police adding that it appeared as though he was shot ‘almost
immediately’ after getting out of the car.
Saunders said that he had shot Harris because he was not following
orders and was advancing on officers, according to WCCB.
Mr Harris’s brother, Jay, said: ‘He was unarmed – and he is a deaf
individual, and I think that he was just afraid.
‘He could not hear their warnings. He could not hear their commands to
stop or to stay away from them.’
