In a shocking new video that is making the rounds, South Carolina police officer Sean Groubert is seen shooting driver Levar Jones during a routine traffic stop. Around :40, the officer asks Jones to retrieve his wallet, and immediately begins shooting, ostensibly under the pretense that he feared Jones was getting a weapon. (I’ll let you decide the absurdity of that yourself.) Jones was shot in the hip and is currently recovering.
Groubert has been fired and arrested, but it remains to be seen what punishment he will actually receive.
