BREAKING: Black Man Shot and Killed by Police in South L.A.

A 24-year-old man has died after being shot by police during an encounter in the Florence neighborhood of South Los Angeles, officials said Tuesday.

The incident began at 8:12 p.m. when officers responded to a report of a shooting at the intersection of West 65th Street and South Broadway, said Lt. Ellis Imaizumi of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Eight minutes later, at 8:20 p.m., the officers stopped a man who was walking in the 200 block of 65th, authorities said.

“A struggle ensued” and police opened fire, according to a statement from the Police Department.

The man was transported to a hospital where he underwent surgery, according to Officer Sara Faden, spokeswoman for the LAPD. He later succumbed to his injuries. No officers were hurt in the incident.

It is unknown if the suspect has any gang affiliations, police said.

A woman who said she was the deceased man’s mother identified him as Ezell Ford.

Tritobia Ford said her son was lying on the ground and complying with the officers’ commands when he was shot.

Yet another one…It’s always a “struggle.” And why bring it up if it’s unknown. They know exactly what they’re insinuating. Be fearful of black people and not the police… This is insanity. 

EZELL FORD WAS UNARMED. This happened just two days after Mike Brown’s murder. (8/11)

UPDATE: It has been reported that Ezell Ford was mentally disabled.

An eyewitness to the killing, Leroy Hill, describes what happened: “He wasn’t a gang banger at all. I was sitting across the street when it happened. So as he was walking down the street, the police approached him, whatever was said I couldn’t hear it, but the cops jumped out of the car and rushed him over here into this corner. They had him in the corner and were beating him, busted him up, for what reason I don’t know but he didn’t do nothing. The next thing I know I hear a ‘pow!’ while he’s on the ground. They got the knee on him. And then I hear another ‘pow!’ No hesitation. And then I hear another ‘pow!’ Three times.”

At one point while the police had Ford on the ground, but before the shooting took place, Hill said, he heard an officer yell, “Shoot him.”

Unrest has rocked the suburb in the days following Brown’s death. At least four people, including two police officers, have been hurt and 47 arrested in the aftermath of the shooting.

On Wednesday morning in South LA, a group of about 10 young and middle-aged men gathered at a makeshift sidewalk memorial lined with candles and signs that read “Police brutality must stop.”

The men at the memorial near the sight of the shooting were visibly shaken by the events that had unfolded there Monday night. They expressed anger toward the LAPD. They said that Ford wasn’t a gang member at all — that he was a “good guy,” a local man who was born and raised in the neighborhood, one whom everyone knew and liked, who routinely played basketball and who also suffered from some form of mental illness.

While all of the men said Ford suffered from some mental illness, they couldn’t confirm what it was. One young neighbor, who requested to not be identified, said that while “he wasn’t all there, he was there enough to follow orders and know to stop when the police tell him to stop. He did nothing wrong.”

Another eyewitness told KTLA that Ford’s mental state was well-known in the neighborhood and to the police.

"They laid him out and for whatever reason, they shot him in the back, knowing mentally, he has complications. Every officer in this area, from the Newton Division, knows that — that this child has mental problems," the man said in an interview with the local network. "The excessive force … there was no purpose for it. The multiple shootings in the back while he’s laying down? No. Then when the mom comes, they don’t try to console her … they pull the billy clubs out." The young neighbor described the incident as "racial bullshit."

Okay, so recently, I discovered that quite a few people have resorted to using the pen tool to fill in their lineart neatly, which takes EXCRUCIATINGLY long . Some people use a masking tool, others just hastily fill in the lineart with the brush tool, which usually ends up with colors poking out the side of the piece that you have to go back and erase.Well I’m going to show you a quicker, easier way to do it, using the wand tool [or selection tool in sai). Some people have problems using the wand tool, as it leaves a blank space between the lineart and the actual fill space, but this tutorial tells you how to avoid this!First, let’s start out with our lineart.Now, you’ll need to select this tool, the wand tool
Now, this is important. you need to select OUTSIDE the lines, not inside. You also have to be on the same layer as your lineart. Make sure your lines are closed so that you don’t end up selecting inside the lines! (If you have intentional gaps in your lineart, I will tell you how to use this same method later in the tutorial)NOW INVERSE!! (select -> inverse) Your selection is now inside the lineart! BUT WAIT!! Do not fill behind the lineart just yet, or this will happen!
You will get white around the outside of the line! We certainly don’t want this! before you fill it in with the bucket or fill tool, you have to go to Select -> Modify -> Contractyou will get this, and you will will have to change the number depending on how thick your lineart is and what dpi you’re working in. Normally I just do 3 or 4 since i work in 300 dpi.So now your selection will go from this:To this!NOW you can fill/use the bucket tool underneath your lineart.Now you may have to do a little erasing in the corners, since the selection tool normally can’t get into little crevices.Also, if you select INSIDE your lineart to fill in certain areas, such as the eyes, all you have to do is go to “select -> modify -> expand” instead of “contract”. NOW FOR LINEART WITH INTENTIONAL GAPS. normally, if you do the selection tool, it will do this, right? 
It selects inside the lines as well. Here’s how you fix that. go underneath your lineart and make lines as if you’re connecting the lines together. Now go back to your wand tool. At the top, you will see a box that will say “Sample all layers”. You need to check this box. Now select outside your lineart and…
Viola! Now just go to the layer that you used to close the gaps, repeat all steps above, and fill it in. (if you’re using the bucket tool, you’ll have to click twice to fill it in completely)ta da! Now just do your cleanup, and you’re good to go! Don’t forget to lock your layers, as well as use clipping masks so you don’t paint outside your lines!I hope this has helped c:

Well I’m going to show you a quicker, easier way to do it, using the wand tool [or selection tool in sai). Some people have problems using the wand tool, as it leaves a blank space between the lineart and the actual fill space, but this tutorial tells you how to avoid this!

First, let’s start out with our lineart.



Now, you’ll need to select this tool, the wand tool

Now, this is important. you need to select OUTSIDE the lines, not inside. You also have to be on the same layer as your lineart. Make sure your lines are closed so that you don’t end up selecting inside the lines! (If you have intentional gaps in your lineart, I will tell you how to use this same method later in the tutorial)



NOW INVERSE!! (select -> inverse) 





Your selection is now inside the lineart! BUT WAIT!! Do not fill behind the lineart just yet, or this will happen!

You will get white around the outside of the line! We certainly don’t want this! before you fill it in with the bucket or fill tool, you have to go to Select -> Modify -> Contract



you will get this, and you will will have to change the number depending on how thick your lineart is and what dpi you’re working in. Normally I just do 3 or 4 since i work in 300 dpi.



So now your selection will go from this:



To this!



NOW you can fill/use the bucket tool underneath your lineart.



Now you may have to do a little erasing in the corners, since the selection tool normally can’t get into little crevices.

Also, if you select INSIDE your lineart to fill in certain areas, such as the eyes, all you have to do is go to “select -> modify -> expand” instead of “contract”. 

NOW FOR LINEART WITH INTENTIONAL GAPS. 

normally, if you do the selection tool, it will do this, right? 

It selects inside the lines as well. Here’s how you fix that. go underneath your lineart and make lines as if you’re connecting the lines together. 



Now go back to your wand tool. At the top, you will see a box that will say “Sample all layers”. You need to check this box. 



Now select outside your lineart and…



Viola! Now just go to the layer that you used to close the gaps, repeat all steps above, and fill it in. (if you’re using the bucket tool, you’ll have to click twice to fill it in completely)



ta da! Now just do your cleanup, and you’re good to go! Don’t forget to lock your layers, as well as use clipping masks so you don’t paint outside your lines!

I hope this has helped c:

STOP. SCROLLING. NOWWWWWWWWW.
The eraser on top is the Paper Mate Union Eraser.
I thought it wouldn’t work much, but… It erases ink.
And NOT JUST ballpoint pen ink, India Ink too.
If you make a mistake, this eraser can erase the whole thing and leave no trace AT ALL, although you do need to erase quite vigorously.
It’s only about 1-2 dollars.

The eraser pencil on the bottom is just that. It is an eraser that you can SHARPEN like a regular pencil. The brush on top is so that you don’t smear your art when you try to push off eraser crumbs. You sweep them off with the brush.
Even if you’re not an artist, signal boost please?
It’s a very cheap way to get around life.
