First video of Seattle cop executing an innocent woodcarver

http://slog.thestranger.com

For the first time, dashcam video of the Seattle Police executing an innocent man has been released.

The shuffling, harmless, homeless woodcarver had less than seven seconds from first contact to his body being riddled with bullets.

And then the cop-murderer lied to his superiors about the knife being open (it was closed) and the man threatening him (he wasn't even facing the cop). The man, John T. Williams, was also half-deaf and his whittling knife was of a legal size.

This is one of the clearest cases of police murder I have ever seen. Disgusting.

Is this the same Ian Birk? It is disgusting.

If this is the same man, why nobody has mentioned his military combat training appears to be part of the PSYOP program or? Murder and pre-meditated murder are still crimes that should be punished to the greatest extent. What is Ian Birk's history with John T. Williams? http://www.goskagit.com/home/article/military_news_aug_13/ Army National Guard Spec. Ian D. Birk has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C. During nine weeks of training, Birk studied the Army mission, history, tradition and core values, physical fitness, and recieved instruction and practice in military weapons, chemical warfare and bayonet training, drill and ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship, armed and unarmed combat skills, map reading, field tactics, military courtesy, military justice system, basic first aid, foot marches and field training exercises. Birk earned distinction as an honor graduate of the course. He is the son of John Birk of Bow. The specialist graduated in 2002 from Burlington-Edison High School and received a bachelor’s degree in 2006 from Seattle Pacific University. http://www.goskagit.com/home/article/military_news_aug_13/
