Satnam Singh apparently went off the edge and beat his mother, Kaul Balbir, over the head with a frying pan. According to police reports they ordered Singh to drop the pan repeatedly but when he refused to cooperate, the officers shot him 5 times (according to the police) and was pronounced dead on the scene. Not sure how a man with a frying pan should have been killed by the cops…perhaps a shot to the leg to disable him would have been more appropriate? Is this another case of police brutality? According to NY1, the NYPD is currently investigating the incident but after an incident last year where police officers from the same 40th Precinct brutalized a man who was already subdued, an independent investigation might be a better route.
