Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 18, 2021

Christian Hall's Dec 30th death was originally called a "classic suicide by cop scenario" but now video from Pennsylvania state police is telling another side of the story. Hall was an 18 year old man at the time of his death. He was adopted from China by his US family when he was 2 and suffered from depression and reactive attachment disorder. The video of his final moments document the stand off between Christian and police after they arrived to talk him down from the edge of a bridge. Hall, who was armed with a realistic airsoft gun, came down from the edge and talked to police for around 90 minutes during which time he put the gun down and smoked marijuana. During the final minute, Hall, who had picked the gun back up, slowly approached police with the gun pointed at the ground. Hall stopped and put his hands up but did not drop the gun. Police then shoot and kill Hall with his hands raised, gun still in hand.
