Darrius H. Kennedy (7082)

8/11/2012: Times Square performer Kennedy typically dressed as a ninja and would do backflips for tourist tips. Mid-afternoon on a Saturday Kennedy was engaged by officers for publically smoking marijuana. Pepper-sprayed six times on a slow-walk pursuit he pulled an 11-inch IKEA kitchen knife, reportedly threatened officers with it, and was shot to death. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2187432/Darrius-Kennedy-shooting-Police-officers-claim-acted-self-defence.html
