In the wake of protests in the black community regarding the deaths of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner, one defendant’s attorney in Florida attempted to use those incidents as an excuse for why his client was hiding from police after an officer was almost killed when he was shot at and a bullet grazed his head.
The Sun-Sentinel provides the background:
According to police, a bullet shattered the windshield of the Fort Lauderdale undercover police sergeant’s unmarked patrol car and grazed his head while he was following a suspicious vehicle at about 1:40 a.m. Monday.
The sergeant had noticed a black Dodge Avenger driving slowly with its lights off and picking up two men in the Harbor Beach neighborhood near the 1500 block of East Lake Drive.
