Add comment on:BART CCTV Video of BART Police Killing Charles Hill at Civic Center Station
BART today released video of one of their police officers shooting and killing Charles Hill on the Civic Center station platform in San Francisco on July 3rd, 2011. The video from one of BART's stationary closed-circuit television cameras on the platform shows the two BART officers involved exiting a BART train. One officer walks out of view of the camera, while the other officer is seen pulling his gun and shooting Charles Hill less than 30 seconds after having arrived on the platform. Also seen in the video is what BART is identifying as a knife that Charles Hill allegedly threw in the direction of the as-yet unidentified shooting officer, as it slides across the platform and bounces off a train a moment after shots were fired by the BART officer. Charles Hill is never seen in the video.
