Are you deaf or what?

A post-mortem on Magdiel Sanchez, who was shot dead on 19 September outside his home by a cop in Oklahoma City, shows that he was hit five times in the chest, pelvis and upper arm. The cop also used a stun gun on Sanchez, who was totally deaf and developmentally disabled. He was carrying a metal pipe at the time of the shooting, which his family say he used as a walking stick.

Bystanders yelled at the cop that Sanchez was deaf – but he says he didn’t hear them.
