Police attempt to smear man they killed

In Anaheim, the police murder of a young man has brought protests that are ongoing even as I write this. Note the back-handed attempt at incrimination in this story:
"Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn said a single officer shot Diaz and a "gun was not recovered at the scene." But, Dunn, said officers reported Diaz tossed away items as he ran. One of those items was recovered, but it was not a gun."

The fact that Diaz allegedly "tossed away items" is completely irrelevant to the story. Here's the simple fact: No weapon of any kind was found. Here's another fact: Even if he had thrown away a gun, unless they claim that he pointed it at the police or anyone in a threatening manner, the police didn't have the slightest right to shoot him. Possessing a gun and running away from a policeman is not even a crime, much less a death-penalty offense.
