FALLING ASLEEP IN A PARKED CAR WHILE BLACK


Marquintan Sandlin and Kisha Michael made arrangements for someone to watch their kids and went out on a date. After the date, in the wee hours of the morning, they fall asleep or pass out in the car with a gun between them(?) The police spent 45 minutes trying to wake the couple up. Then military grade weapons were fired into or at the car by police, killing them both.

The mayor says one or both of them must have been awake at some point because somebody (one or more of the cops) felt threatened.

This above is an outline of the police version of this story. Does this even come close to making sense to you?

"For at least 45 minutes, police attempted "to rouse" them in an effort "to de-escalate the situation," said Butts. It is the first public explanation for what transpired early Sunday morning during the time between the initial call and the shooting.  Police previously had stated responding officers saw the woman had a gun, retreated to behind cover, and then gave orders for the couple to exit the vehicle."

So THIS VERSION of events is actually story #2. Got it. * * * * * STORY #1
Officers said they received a call early Sunday morning of a suspicious vehicle stopped near Manchester Boulevard and Inglewood Avenue. When they approached the car, they noticed the woman in the car had a gun and ordered her and a male occupant out of the vehicle, said Scott Collins, a spokesman for the Inglewood Police Department.
Officers then took cover and opened fire, killing both people. 
However, Kisha's never owned a gun according to her twin sister. Read More: http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-family-of-woman-killed-by-inglewood-police-demand-answers-20160222-story.html
