Pay Your MUNI Fare Or Die

San Francisco Police shoot 19 year old boy 6 times for not paying MUNI fare. This boy is somebody's son. Watch him die. I dare you.

I'm sorry but I have to correct you. The wound that killed this man ( who was running from the police to avoid capture as a person of interest in a recent Seattle murder) was SELF INFLICTED. The police in San Francisco simply do not carry the caliber of bullet that killed him. He was not shot for not paying his fare. He fired rounds at the police officers while trying to avoid capture and while running managed to fatally injure himself. Whether intentional or not I don't think it's very fair of you to pass judgement without knowing the facts.

You are telling me that he fatally shot himself? But still managed to dispose of the gun? The other 5 bullets?

So, you are saying that the police would have been waiting for him even if he had paid his fare? How did they know he was on the Muni train?

Or if it was the Muni that summoned police, how were they able to know that the non-payer of fare was a wanted murder suspect?

The Muni is a subway/streetcar purchasing a ticket is anonymous. It seems like there is a lot of knowledge about the kid gathered and disseminated in a very short period of time.

After receiving a San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) press release issued July 21 stating that the man who died July 16 following an officer-involved shooting in the Bayview had been killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, I phoned the city's Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Amy Hart.

I asked Hart to walk me through how the conclusion that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted had been reached. But Hart responded that the Medical Examiner has not reached any conclusion so far about the cause of Harding's death.

"That's not a component of the press release that we issued," Hart said. "Maybe it's a question that would be best addressed to the San Francisco Police Department, probably their homicide division. For us, the cause and manner of death are pending. So, we are going to complete our investigation before we discuss the manner of death. The question that you're asking is something that came from the police press release, so you have to ask them the nature of why they said that."
