Police initiated murders of unarmed, non-threatening civilians who committed no crime or were suspected of a victimless crime have continued despite media hype around the August 6 shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. Four separate killings have now actually been captured on video. Here is a recap of some murders from different areas of the country, a summary of how we can bring accountability to local law enforcement and links to videos and audios that support the conclusions reached in this article:

GEORGIA -- David Hooks:

In Dublin, Georgia on Sept 24 2014, undercover Laurens County deputies broke into the home of David Hooks, firing about 17 shots and killing him in the presence of his wife. It was another classic, out of control drug raid gone wrong. The unidentified deputies incredibly acted on a tip from a methamphetamine addict who burglarized Hooks' home and stole his SUV two nights previous. Despite a ridiculous lack of credibility of the tipster named Rodney Garrett, Magistrate Judge Faith Snell issued a "knock and announce" warrant. But the deputies did not knock and announce according to Mrs. Hooks, instead they broke into the house of the 59-year old construction company owner and grandfather, who never fired any gun even though he thought were being burglarized again.

Laurens County Sheriff Bill Harrell, indicated that officers were justified in killing Shook because had a shotgun which was later found to be unloaded. Harrell did not seem to understand that Hooks had a constitutional right to have a firearm in his house to defend himself. Mitchell Shook, the attorney for his widow, has since outlined evidence that the deputies shot Hooks through a wall and later in the back while he was lying on the floor. Officers searched the home for 44 hours and did not find a single trace of drugs.

OHIO -- John Crawford:

In Ohio, two youths handling toy rifles were shot and killed instantly by police officers who arrived at the scene due to misconstrued 911 calls. Both of the victims were by themselves and neither had threatened anyone including the officers. Both murders were captured on video.

On August 5 near Dayton, 22 year-old John Crawford III was shot and killed instantly while shopping inside the Beavercreek WalMart and talking on a cell phone to the mother of his two year old daughter. The store video shows that he picked up a BB gun that Walmart sells and was holding it while looking at other merchandise to buy. Crawford was shot by officer Sean Williams who raced into the store in gear. The video shows that Williams fired the fatal bullet after the startled Crawford had dropped the gun and was on the floor.

After the murder, Detective Rodney Curd questioned the mother of Crawford's daughter for well over an hour without telling her Crawford was dead. In the recorded interview , he repeatedly asked her where Crawford got the gun. At that point, Curd should have been fully informed that there was no gun. If Curd really did not know there was no gun and was not intentionally lying to her, the Beavercreek Police would have to be totally incompetent.

Ironically, it was Williams who committed the only other killing by a Beavercreek police officer when he responded to a domestic call and shot a popular retired Air Force officer, Scott Brogli. Williams arrived at the Walmart after a dispatcher received a 911 call but did not verify or screen the information received from the caller. The Walmart shooting was so traumatic that it also resulted in the death of Angela Williams , 37, of Fairborn, who had a previous medical condition. Ms. Williams was a mother of 5 children and two step children.
