BART's disgusting spin on their latest crime

A friend called the below BART propaganda to my attention. BART is more concerned with an officer's "cuts" and "bruises" than it is with the fact that an allegedly inebriated, hence significantly impaired, man was shot dead by BART police. Particularly revolting is BART's statement that the suspect CAUSED BART police to shoot and kill him. No allegations have been made, to my knowledge, that the victim was harming anybody prior to his summary execution.
BART officer suffers cuts, bruises following officer involved shooting

A BART police officer is suffering from cuts and bruises on his arm this morning as investigators try to determine why a suspect reportedly armed with a knife caused police to shoot and kill him on the platform of the Civic Center/UN Plaza BART Station.

if the cop was hurt so badly, they would have said that he'd gone to the hospital and was released, or something along those lines

suffering, while now on paid vacation for killing someone? suffering, while someone is now dead because bart police are too chickenshit to do anything but kill? suffering, my ass

This looks like the work of their Public relations hack Sam Singer. Just keep spinning, spinning, spinning until the public is dizzy and can't think no longer, think no longer, think no longer. Only a coward would shoot someone the way these BART cops do.
