McCullers, who had 31 outstanding parking tickets, was shot as he tried to back out of his driveway along the 3400 block of Portland Drive in Whitehall Township around 7:30 a.m. Thursday. His girlfriend says McCullers was on his way to Dunkin' Donuts and was surprised by the constable.
"They never knocked on the door! No nothing! I just heard the gunshots! He pulled the car out of the garage and all I heard were gunshots," said Hafeezah Muhammad, who added that McCullers, who was hit in the back, may not walk again. "For parking tickets?! It's insane."
Whitehall Township Mayor Ed Hozza Jr. said McCullers was shot after he allegedly tried to run over the constable.
So which was it?
Was the victim trying to run over the cop as he backed out of his garage or was he simply going to get donuts when a trigger happy cop overreacted and almost killed him?

Based upon the pictures it looks like they attempted to block him in with their SUV and the victim tried to back out around them. Which would be my exact reaction if people I didn't know pulled up and blocked me from leaving my drive way in an unmarked car.
Maybe one got out and was in the path of his vehicle... I don't know, but what I do know is that they most likely didn't need to resort to shooting the guy over tickets.
Constantly hearing about unnecessary police violence is getting really tiresome.
