Welcome to Seattle; woodcarving capital of the "Lower 48" states.
This is the dashcam footage of the shooting of Native Canadian woodcarver, John Williams. The shooting is not captured in the video, but it is clear that John Williams was carving and concentrating on a piece of wood when he passed in front of the police car. He wasn't threatening anyone, or acting unusually; Why did the officer stop to harass him?
