Fatal shooting of Adam Toledo ... US police routinely shout the pretext "drop the weapon" as a precursor to shooting a victim

Adam Toledo did not appear to be armed when shot to death. Often the victim is not armed and the shout of drop your weapon is a pretext to give them cover for their shooting of civilians.

Police shootings appear to be an almost daily occurrence.

It is arguable that police often do little to help the victim to live after a shooting because dead men tell no tales. A dead victim cannot be a witness.
