Police Kill a Man – level 1

Police Kill a Man – level 1

26-09-2016 07:00

This news is from the USA. A man is driving home. His car stops working. The car is standing in the road. People see the car. They think that it is abandoned. They call the police.

The police come to the car. The man in the car does not have a gun. He does what the police tell him. This does not matter. He is African-American.

The police tase and shoot the man. A person films all of this. The man goes to hospital. He dies there.

Difficult words: abandoned (not used, left somewhere), matter (when something matters it is important, it can change the situation), tase (attack with a taser – an “electric gun”).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
