(CNN)Police in Columbus, Ohio, have released body camera video that shows a police officer serving a felony warrant fatally shooting an unarmed Black man in bed. Donovan Lewis, 20, died Tuesday after being shot by Police Officer Ricky Anderson, a 30-year veteran with the Columbus Division of Police assigned to the K9 unit, according to a police statement. There was no justification for the officer to shoot, Rex Elliott, an attorney for Lewis' family, said at a news conference Thursday morning.

"it appeared Lewis was holding "something" in his hand."

3rd police shooting in Columbus this week.
The litany of criminal shootings by the Police in that video report got a "WTF?!?!?" from me.

I'll give 10 to 1 odds that he won't be criminally convicted. Anyone else would be but he is a cop.

Sure there was. He was black, therefore inherently deadly. Cop had to protect himself, he feared for his life.

Funny how only liberals speak out against this.

By funny, I mean emblematic of who opposes fascism vs who's not bothered by fascism especially when it happens to poor peope.
