The Oklahoma City police department just defended its trained police officers shooting and killing a deaf man, despite neighbors warning the officers that the man was deaf, by saying they “get tunnel vision and only see a threat” when they have their guns out. WTF. *Reminder: Trump and his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, are aggressively working towards zero police oversight and accountability by defunding programs.
The Oklahoma City police spokesperson said it’s possible the officers didn’t hear witnesses yelling. “When you have a weapon out, you can get what they call tunnel vision,” and only see a threat, he said.
