Where is the Contra Costa District Attorney Diana Becton? She needs to do her job and indict this killer cop. It is beyond the pale that a subhuman like this cop, Andrew Hall, is allowed to walk the streets. He should be in jail.
It is a stinging indictment of the American law enforcement system that such a horrid man is walking the streets and responsible for protecting the public.
It’s a disgusting outrage. I can’t even bring myself to watch this video of this murder.
The comments by the killer cop’s lawyer, Michael Rains, a proverbial go to hired gun for out of control cops, is equally appalling. He is excusing the murderous behavior of his client.
Top Photo – A video captured by a motorist who declines to be identified depicts the shooting of homeless man Tyrell Wilson, who was shot at point blank range by Danville police officer Andrew Hall on March 11, 2021 in the intersection of Sycamore Valley Road and Camino Ramon. Wilson died six days later in a local hospital. The officer contended that Wilson was armed with a folding knife he had refused to relinquish and that he had advanced toward Hall, giving him cause to shoot.

A video obtained Monday by The Chronicle shows the fatal shooting by a Danville police officer of 32-year-old Tyrell Wilson, a homeless Black man who had been staying near a public parking lot used by carpoolers.
Wilson died on March 17 at a local hospital. Civil rights attorney John Burris, who represents Wilson’s family, said that after seeing the body, he concluded that Hall had shot Wilson in the face.
“It’s startling,” Burris said of the video. “It’s hard to watch what took place… The video confirmed to me that Wilson was not an aggressive person.”
The video, taken by a witness to the shooting, does not appear to capture Wilson advance toward Officer Andrew Hall, as Danville police said he did before he was shot on March 11. It shows the two men facing one another, standing feet apart shortly before noon that day at Sycamore Valley Road and Camino Ramon.
