Rapid City, SD: Protest march June 1: Cristopher Capps, 22, shot dead by officer for brandishing driftwood

According to the Native Sun News in Rapid City, a march in protest of the shooting of college bound, Oglala Lakota, Christopher Capps will take place on June 1.

In-depth investigation by Randal Howell, Managing Editor at NSN, reveals the officer who shot Capps to death was wearing a taser at the time. And, the knife the officer claimed he saw was in fact a sharp, 6-8 inch piece of driftwood.
