According to The Root, 26-year old Diante Yarber was shot about thirty times by California Police on April 5, 2018 who clearly was sitting in the parking lot of Wal-Mart not doing anything wrong. He was driving his cousin and friends to Wal-mart where police claimed he was “wanted for questioning” about a stolen vehicle cased where he “accelerated” the car towards police when they were trying to stop him. But how did a peaceful moment ended up deadly with a black father dead?
According to the attorney for the family, Lee Merrit, quoted “They saw a car full of black people sitting in front of a Walmart, and they decided that was suspicious,” said Merritt. “They just began pouring bullets … It’s irresponsible. It’s dangerous. It’s mind-boggling, the use of force.” (Source, The Guardian)
