The New York Police Department has released a video of 34-year-old Saheed Vassell, shot and killed by officers on Wednesday in Brooklyn. When officers first approached, they say Vassell pointed a pipe at them and took a shooting stance. Four officers then reportedly fired at the man. Vassell’s family says he suffered from bipolar disorder and was polite and kind. For more, RT America’s Ed Schultz is joined by retired Washington, DC metro police officer Ronald Hampton.
