In Lancaster California I witnessed 2 police officers kill a man, Here is my story..
This happened at a bar called The Office Bar and Grill out in the middle of nowhere back then.
I was 14 when I saw this..
"I went there to have lunch in 1974 with my friend Craig who's sister was the bartender, we had really good burgers and played shuffleboard.After
about 2 hours hanging out,
two biker looking guys came in and demanded money from my friends sister and they took her back to the office area.
they were gone for about 20 minutes.
She came out all pale and shaky and I could see something was wrong, but hey, I was 14 at the time.These two rowdy looking guys stayed for a while
and had a beer also.. (A gun was tucked in his waistband in back)
After a while 2 cop cars came sneaking into the parking lot, I was looking out the window all this time..was bored..
they jumped out of their cop cars and started hollering for everyone to lay down and they wanted the guys to come outside, man was i scared..
So one of these guys runs out and throws his gun into his car through the _.
Next thing I saw was these 2 cops unload 15 rounds into this guy, as I watched him do the death dance I was shocked..
The cops came in and asked where the other guy was but he had ran out the back by this time..I spent 18 hours at the police station telling what I saw
to about 20 different cops and the FBI....so yea, they had good food and bad entertainment....you can look it up, it really happened..but the story
will not be what I just told you, they changed it the next day to make it sound like the guy pulled a gun and started shooting at the cops..
that never happened...still haunts me...
I remember reading the story in the paper the next day and was not what I told the cops had happened..
Edit..I want to add that I checked the Archives from 1974 and can't find the story, we weren't wearing jackets so it wasn't cold out, and like I said,
the story has a different title...
