Video: Police gun down Mario Woods

Here is a video of the San Francisco police gunning down Mario Woods as he walks away from them. The incident happened on December 2, 2015.

Police claim that Woods had previously slashed a stranger with a knife for no apparent reason, and when they confronted him he ignored their orders to drop the knife, so they were forced to shoot him over twenty times. The shooting is being investigated by the police department, the district attorney and the Office of Citizen Complaints to determine whether the officers broke the law or department rules.
