Disturbing!

This was a disturbing news alert

a car surrounded the man shot

with not a chance to surrender

to prove his innocence or guilt

killed upon an observation made

this happened on a busy highway

at least eight shots by police fired

his existence that day expired!

 

A witness reported a man had a gun

how easy is it to mistake an object

driving by at speed on a busy road

but was proof beforehand attained

to confirm if it had actually occurred

positive in a split second sighting

was this truly the right choice taken

if wrong decision a life forsaken!

 

Is it not a worry how at peril we are

in a society of such savagery and fear

how easy for mistakes to be made

decisions initiated without a reverse

enquiries are vague an internal affair

what we are told often makes no sense

the risk to life has become immense!

 

Should we really start to have major misgivings?
