Roland Martin talks to Michael Wright of the Cochran Firm about John Crawford, an Ohio man who was shopping in Walmart for a gun and was later shot and killed by police officers, after a patron called the cops out of fear.
“This was an unjustified killing of John. He was doing nothing work and was shot and killed by the police,” Wright said. “It was a BB gun that was on the shelf. We believe he was purchasing the air gun.”
