More questions need to be asked until we get answers. But so far that’s not happening.
More than 49 days after the death of Tommy Le, questions remain unanswered about why Kings County Sheriff Deputies near Seattle shot and killed a 20-year old man with a pen.
The family this week attended a traditional Vietnamese ceremony commemorating the 49th day of his death, reports Crosscut. The 49th day marks the end of 49 days of prayer so that the dead can be reborn into the next life and help make the world a better place.
When deputies shot Le, they originally said he was carrying a knife. A week later they admitted Le was not holding a knife, but a pen.
