This seriously needs to stop.
On Thursday, state trooper Jermaine Saunders shot and killed Daniel Harris after a traffic violation in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 29-year-old was deaf, mute, and unarmed.
The State Bureau of Investigation says the State Highway Patrol officer tried to pull over the man's Volvo on I-485 for speeding.
However, the car didn't pull over for the trooper, resulting in a brief pursuit.
The Highway Patrol told Channel 9 that the chase continued onto the Rocky River Road off-ramp, where the officers intentionally bumped Daniel's vehicle to get him to pull over.
When the chase ended on Seven Oaks Drive — the street where Mr. Harris lived — neighbor Mark Barringer described to WCNC how both cars were damaged:
