On March 9th 2015 Anthony Hill was shot and killed by Dekalb County, Ga police officers. Hill who is bipolar was naked and unarmed. Officers were equiped with tasers but instead chose to shoot Hill because he was walking towards them with his hands up.

Huffington Post:

A Dekalb County police officer responded to a caller who said a man was “acting deranged, knocking on doors, and crawling around on the ground naked,” on Monday around 1 p.m. local time, county police chief Cedric Alexander told reporters.

The officer encountered the man, who was not wearing any clothes, in the parking lot, Alexander said at a conference published online by local broadcaster Fox5.

Daily News:

The cop was armed with a taser at the time of the killing; it’s unclear why the less-lethal force was not used on the unarmed Hil
