California police officers fatally shot a 20-year-old rapper who was sleeping in his car outside a Taco Bell, authorities said. Six Vallejo officers fired "multiple rounds" at the man, identified by family as Willie McCoy, police said. McCoy had a handgun on him when the officers fired out of "fear for their own safety" on Saturday night, according to the department. The family of McCoy, whose rapper name was Willie Bo, said Tuesday that police had racially profiled the young black man and that there was no justification for using deadly force against someone who was sleeping and not a threat. "There was no attempt to try to work out a peaceful solution," Marc McCoy, Willie's older brother, told the Guardian. "The police's job is to arrest people who are breaking the law – not take the law into your own hands. You're not judge, jury and executioner ... We're never going to get over this."

In my workplace parking lot I saw someone passed the fk out, head on the steering wheel, looking already dead.

The cop would've probably passed on by, thinking his job was already done in that sector.

So is it because he was sleeping that he has no right to defend himself?
