Black Attorney Brian Dunn Blames Blacks For Being Killed By Police During Duante Wright’s Funeral

Cochran Law Firm managing partner Brian Dunn appeared on MSNBC and shamelessly and strongly blamed blacks running from police as the cause and justification for police to kill blacks evading police. Dunn, a civil rights attorney who sues and wins lots of money from municipalities for police brutality against black victims, KNOWS BETTER! Brian KNOWS what every civil attorney knows: a person who is evading police has a constitutional right to evade police as long as that person is not threatening death or serious bodily harm to the officer or others. Says who? Says the U.S. Supreme Court in Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1 (1985) Held: The Tennessee statute is unconstitutional insofar as it authorizes the use of deadly force against, as in this case, an apparently unarmed, nondangerous fleeing suspect; such force may not be used unless necessary to prevent the escape and the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others.
