Cops Killed Black Man With Hands Up

The Bridgeton, New Jersey police department has released video of a Dec. 30 encounter between two police officers and a black man that shows the officers shooting and killing him as he stood to get out of a car with his hands up in front of him. The confrontation between the two officers, Braheme Days and Roger Worley, and Jerame Reid, started with a traffic stop but quickly escalated. “Don’t you fucking move!” Days is shown saying while he and Worley drew their weapons. “You’re gonna be fucking dead. You reach for something, you’re gonna be fucking dead!” After the cops said they found a gun in the glove compartment, they told the men in the car to get out. Reid can be heard yelling “Let me out of the fucking car” before getting out with his hands in front of his chest. The officers then opened fire nine times, from behind and in front of Reid, killing him. Days is black, Worley is white, and both have been placed on administrative leave while the police investigate the incident.
