9 July in the U.S. there was another case of the use of police firearms against African Americans. The incident took place in Houston, and chief of police of the city said that the police had every reason to open fire.
According to police, Braziel Alva refused to obey orders to put the weapon on the ground. Instead, he pointed the gun at officers and they opened fire. From the received wounds he died on the spot.
The chief of police of Houston in a statement several times stressed that the use of firearms was absolutely justified. He also said that the police shot Brazile, Hispanics, so accusations of racism are absurd.
Recently in the US there are mass demonstrations in which the participants accuse police of racism and excessive use of weapons against the African-American population.
During a demonstration in Dallas on 7 July, Mike Johnson, who wanted to avenge the deaths of African-Americans, opened fire on the police and killed five of them. Another nine people were injured. Johnson was destroyed after long negotiations.
