VIDEO: Protests Break Out in Washington State After Police Shooting of Man Throwing Rocks

Residents angry that police shot and killed an orchard worker accused of throwing rocks at officers Tuesday are planning more protests in an agricultural area of southeastern Washington.

Police in Pasco, Wash., about 215 miles southeast of Seattle say 35-year-old Antonio Zambrano-Montes threw multiple rocks, hitting two officers, and refused to put down other stones. Witnesses say he was running away when officers shot him, the Associated Press reports.

Even the original article linked to, does not say he was a citizen. Orchard worker. Of course they are upset, the city is Half Hispanic, like the rock thrower. Their protest contains a subtext, which indicates they should be able to throw rocks at whoever they want. Citizens and non-citizens alike get that option, right? Next time it could be a pipe bomb.

Wonder how they'd feel if city services were turned off for one day. Stop investigating their domestic disputes and homicides. On the basis that they have indicated their preference for self-government, policing themselves. Let Hispanic citizens police the illegal presence.

You just have to write it right. As they say for Television: Perception is reality.

It shouldn't even matter what race he was. A tazer didn't work, he didn't do what the officers were telling him to do, and stop throwing the rocks at officers. He asked for it he got it. In case people didn't know rocks if thrown hard enough and depending where they hit could cause serious injury, and could lead to that officers death. Yeah that's a lot of "ifs". It could happen though.
