Native American Who Attended Anti-Police Rally Killed By Police Next Day
[su_right_ad]Allen Locke was killed by police in Rapid City, SD, one day after attending a rally against cops called #NativeLivesMatter.
Locke was shot up to five times by Rapid City Officer Anthony Meirose, who was called to remove a person from a residence, according to a press release by the Rapid City Police Department, noted the Rapid City Journal.
“Officer Meirose approached the house and while standing in the doorway, he was attacked by a male subject with a knife. The officer drew his weapon and shot the subject several times,” Rapid City Police Captain Dan Rud told Black Hills Fox (video below).
However, it’s not clear why Officer Meirose didn’t use his Taser instead of his gun.
“From what we understand of the situation last night there was no time for that and it was not a viable option, Taser or OC spray or whatever, it was not a viable option for the officer at the time,” added Captain Rud.[su_csky_ad]
