http://seattletimes.nwsource.com

On August 30, Seattle Police Ofc. Ian Burk murdered John T. Williams for holding a legally-sized whittling knife. Williams was a half-deaf Native American woodcarver who was also wearing headphones at the time. Birk claimed Williams refused to drop the legally-sized knife and approached him, but just-released autopsy results show Williams was in fact walking away from his executioner at the time he was shot. Police video of the incident still has not been released.
