Los Angeles police shot an unarmed man who raised his towel-wrapped arm toward them.

The man flagged down officers about 6:35 p.m. at Los Feliz Boulevard and Tica Drive south of Griffith Park, according to a police account.

“This person extended an arm wrapped in a towel. The officer exited the vehicle and said, ‘Drop the gun, drop the gun,'” LAPD Lt. John Jenal said.

At that point at least one officer shot the man, officials say. He was taken to a hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

    I guess the blue pigs still felt threatened. If I saw my blue pig husband in this video I’d be at the nearest divorce attorney’s office early Monday morning. Disgusting.
