Police shoot and kill unarmed man running to them for help after he wrecked his car

You used to be able to call them for help…

Jonathan Ferrell is dead from multiple gunshot wounds after a car wreck that had him stumbling around the neighborhood frantically looking for help. After crashing his car, Ferrell ran to the nearest house trying to get assistance when a woman called 911 after he banged on her door.

Officer Kerrick has been placed in jail on a $50,000 bond

Police arrived and when Ferrell began limping in their direction they predictably began to deploy their tasers, which malfunctioned. Another officer then reacted by pulling out his weapon and killing him. All three police involved have been put on paid leave including Randall Kerrick who has been charged with a felony, voluntary manslaughter.
