Today Akron, Ohio police released video showing the moments that preceded 25-year-old Jayland Walker’s death late last month, when police say he died after shooting at a police car while in a vehicle pursuit and then fleeing on foot. He was shot him 60 times in a hail of over 90 bullets.

In a video presentation delivered today, one week after Walker’s death, police say he refused to pull over for a traffic violation, then initiated a police pursuit in which he fired on police vehicles from inside his car.

Ultimately, the police video shows that Walker fled his vehicle on foot. He continued running from officers despite their orders to stop, and they opened fire after first unsuccessfully attempting to deploy tasers to incapacitate him and end the pursuit. They add that there is a moment in the foot pursuit in which Walker appears to reach for his waistband, leading them to believe he was still armed.

Police say they found a gun inside his vehicle after the chase, and offered video showing the moment they say he fired on police while in his vehicle from multiple angles.

Warning: Graphic content ahead

The family’s attorney claims the video shows police acted improperly, according to Cleveland 19, but police say it shows the officers had reasonable cause to believe Walker had a gun when initiating a foot chase with police.

“I’m disappointed I saw that today,” said attorney Paige Wright, noting that Walker was unarmed as he fled from police on foot. “They want to turn him into a masked monster with a gun.”

“Nobody should ever suffer the fate that Jayland Walker did,” he declared. “We demand justice for Jayland Walker.”

Out-of-context video has been posted to social media, showing the moment police opened fire on Walker.

Protests started in Akron shortly after the body cam video was released, reported WKYC, which added that “hundreds” turned out.

The Daily Mail has compared the event to the death of George Floyd, writing that Walker’s death is the “latest in a spate of killings of black men by law enforcement in the United States.”

    A hail of 90 bullets for an unarmed man, but no defense for 19 children and 2 adults in Texas!

    Nothing to see here, just another dead thug that shit at cops and paid the price. I am tired of all the stupid people claiming he was unarmed. You’re stupid, he shot at someone and they shot back. He lost!

      If you want to know how many times police plant guns and drugs on innocent targets, one need only go online… nevertheless, given the degree to which innocent persons have been killed by police, some ethnic communities have determined to use their Second Amendment Rights TO DEFEND AGAINST THUG POLICE! And, I’m SURE, you have nothing against the Second Amendment!

      We’ll see… Mr. Vanguard– of community safety!… God will make known the truth!

        I’ve been stopped by the Police 3 or 4 times in 60 years of driving. I haven’t been shot once. Among other things, I don’t shoot at cops. I don’t try and out run the cops. And I never even tried to out fight them. I guess some people never learn that.

          Let me guess!… you’re a white guy!… who would not be “suspicious looking”!

          I’m sitting here wondering to myself how many armed ethnic folk have saved themselves from a cop whose first instinct upon approaching an “ethnic’s car”, was to reach for his/ her/ whatever’s “Second Amendment Tool”. That would be a nice statistic to have!

          Your DELUSIONAL, MYOPIC “I’M ALL RIGHT JACK” WORLD, ISN’T THE REAL WORLD for many ETHNO-AMERICANS! And for some, COMPLYING WITH POLICE has meant the DEATH of a number innocent souls!… like that of George Floyd!

          Sorry!… I don’t buckle my pants backward, upside-down and around my neck!… and, especially, if I’ve just farted! It’s hard to have a decent conversation! Capisce?

          Only the guilty will defy police and run. The consequences are a result of their actions for which police should not be held responsible/accountable..

            The Holy Spirit declares in the Book of Luke, C. 4 (Berean Study Bible):…
            .
            29) They got up, drove Him out of the town, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw Him over the cliff. 30) But Jesus passed through the crowd and went on His way.
            .
            To sum, those that made the attempt to take Christ’s life… unless these repented… will be held to account.

    Advice to people who do not want to be shot by cops…
    (1.) Obey the police.
    (2.) Don’t piss them off.
    (3.) Don’t shoot at the cops, That REALLY pisses them off!

    Maybe if enough of these damned THUGS get killed after shooting at the police, the others will get the message !!! There are TWO things that will stop a thug from shooting at somebody, The knowledge that if he does he will either die or spend the rest of his worthless life in prison !! WE MUST either kill their a$$e$ or make sure that they are put away FOREVER if they commit a crime with a gun !!! IT’S REAL SIMPLE !!!

    Maybe the man shot was deaf, he couldn’t hear the police tell him to do various things, BUT, that didn’t stop him from shooting at the police and then run. The problem is this, he rather shot at the police for what reason? Why was he reaching into his pants while running? People, the police aren’t mind readers. They had to assume that since he shot at them once, he would do it again. How many people were shot when they did what the police asked to do? Most police don’t speak jive.
