This seems to be a day-to-day occurrence another African-American man shot by police using deadly force. Another black man became a hashtag most recently Kevin Allen died at the hands of Lyndhurst, NJ police, who claim they had no choice but to use lethal force against him in a library on a Friday. Officials said that Allen, 36, who was shot and killed by officers inside the Lyndhurst Public Library, was armed with a utility knife. Apparently a policeman somehow recognized Allen from a bench warrant, and a confrontation of some sort ensued from there. Chief of Police James O’ Connor said 36-year old Kevin Allen ‘menaced’ police with the utility knife before they shot him around 1:30 p.m. in the library’s top floor.
