Special Response Team kills man in traffic stop

Posted July 9th, 2010 by slimey

The incident began about 11 p.m. Wednesday when seven members of the Washington County Special Response team stopped a car on a residential street in Cottage Grove.

Investigators say Clausen got out and refused to follow orders from the officers, four of whom opened fire. They're not saying yet if he had a weapon or threatened the officers. He died at the scene.

Yeah, I didn't write that very well and made it sound contradictory. I spun it my way, because if he did have a gun I feel the media and the police would have mentioned that instantly. The victim definitely didn't threaten them, and was just slow to follow orders.
