That’s Not Helping: Police Shoot Homeless Man In Front Of 50+ Kids

This video by Matthew Cooke is the first episode of “That’s Not Helping,” a comedy news series discussing tragic events.

In this episode, Matthew touches on a recent incident in Florida where Miami Police Officer Antonio Torres shot and killed a homeless man at Gibson Park located in Overtown. The shooting occurred on the afternoon of Thursday June 11, 2015. Matthew suggests alternatives that he believes would help the 500,000 homeless people in the U.S., the 42.5 million Americans with mental illness, and those who are really hoping police officers will stop killing people unnecessarily.
