Police Kill a Man – level 2
An American man was on his way home when his car broke down. People called the police because they saw the abandoned car.
The police came to the car. They tasered and shot the man, who later died in hospital. Someone filmed the incident. The man did not have a gun, and he did what the police told him. He was killed anyway. He was an African-American.
The police say that the man did not do what they told him, but the video shows something else.
Difficult words: break down (stop working), abandoned (not used, left somewhere), tase (attack with a taser – an “electric gun”).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
