Cop Shoots and Kills Unarmed Teenager During Sting Operation Over a Bag of Marijuana

Seneca, SC — The war on nature continues to claim the lives of innocent young people. In Seneca, South Carolina a teenager lost his life Sunday night for the heinous act of driving a woman to sell a bag of marijuana. It happened in a similar fashion to the shooting of Samuel Dubose by Officer Ray Tensing, who was just charged with murder.
Zachary Hammond, 19, was shot to death through an open side window by a police officer assisting in the sting operation. While real crimes were happening elsewhere, this cop and an undercover agent were setting people up for selling a plant that actually happens to be legal in many other states.
According to the account of the incident given to media by Police Chief John Covington, the officer “fired two shots in self-defense” as Zachary “drove his vehicle directly at the officer” in the back parking lot of Hardee’s restaurant on U.S. 123.
Covington said Tuesday that the car was turning toward the officer and he was in its path. The officer fired through the driver’s side window to keep the car from hitting him as it approached from an angle, the chief said.
Instead of getting out of the way, the officer felt that it was more important to shoot the driver to death than let that dangerous bag of marijuana threaten the public. Irony at its most tragic.
If you are in front of a car, that is going to run you over, how do you manage to fire through a side window?
