Brutal @SanJosePD guns down mentally ill citizen for posessing a caulking gun

A naked man, obviously mentally ill, was gunned down by San Jose police officers who who claimed he was armed with a harmless caulking gun.

John Bradley Bowles, a 53-year-old from San Jose, remained in critical condition at a local hospital Monday following his shooting by three officers in the crowded parking lot of a shopping center.

Bowles had a history of mental illness. That didn’t matter to the police.

Officers, who maintained they feared for their lives. Yes, seriously, that’s what they said.

The attempted murder of a mentally ill citizen was one of several throughout the Bay Area over the past two weeks.

Amazingly, Bowles didn’t die, rather he’s beingĀ held under $75,000 bail at the hospital on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Enjoy your Police State.
