24-year-old shoplifting suspect, William Ewell, was detained by at least 4 armed law enforcement officers. The man was repeatedly telling them that he was unarmed, while down on his knees with hands behind his head. Yet, all four of the officers continued to point their firearms directly at him. Luckily for William, a bystanding woman couldn’t remain indifferent to the situation and stepped in to defend him.
Sky Holsey, whose boyfriend was killed by a police officer in 2015, filmed the entire confrontation on her phone. However, after her video went viral, police released a statement that Ewell had several stolen items from a gas station on him and has assaulted an employee.
