Killing of Anthony Hayes by NOLA Police – 12/26/05

Four clips are sequenced of the scene of this killing by police on December 26, 2005. The video is jumpy, for understandable reasons. This was a very tense situation that ended in tragedy.

A question: How could this man, even with a little knife, have posed such a threat to a phalanx of heavily armed police, to justify this killing?
