Philadelphia, PA: RIP David Thomas Jones

Saw this on Chester at 49th street. David Thomas Jones was killed by police on Thursday in Philadelphia. As Judie Shaw wrote:

The father of a 30-year-old man who was shot and killed by police in North Philadelphia last week, David Jones, spoke out against his son being killed as he ran from an officer.

“It’s just kind of empty right now because I didn’t think my son would get shot in the back,”  Thomas Jones, 47, of Olney, said. “I thought there was a procedure where you would tase a person first, or shoot a person in the leg. I didn’t think you would shoot to kill if a person is running away. If someone is running away from you, why shoot him in the back like an animal?”
