Adam Phillips (4534)

12/1/2008: Phillips' mother called police to report that her son had stolen her car, cell phone and wallet. This hadn't been the first time. Located, Phillips refused to pull over. His car stalled, and with a "growing contingent of law enforcement officers" now following him, Phillips refused to leave the vehicle. Apparently without further provocation one of the officers fatally shot the unarmed man multiple times.
