Ricardo Munoz, a non-white man who charged at a lone police officer with a knife, fell down and was then shot to death. Riots broke out after false rumors spread that an “unarmed,” “autistic,” “black” man was shot and killed by police. Police say they were called by his sister when he became aggressive with his mother.
Dijon Kizzee, a black man who was stopped for a bicycle code violation, dropped the bike and fled, and then punched an officer in a scuffle. Sheriffs say that a semi-automatic handgun fell from Kizzee’s clothing and when he made a move to retrieve the firearm, the sheriff’s deputies opened fire and killed Kizzee.
