Altar Boy Photos Next?
Story #2 in the Metro Briefs - according to people who weren't on the scene, Walter Armstrong had his hands raised and had no gun when police shot and killed him at 49th and Drexel. Also, after they shot the unarmed former altar boy and pillar of the community, they handcuffed him before they called for medical assistance. The former neighborhood activist, boy scout, and honor student presumably leaves behind a family and a thriving business where he contracted numerous youthful members of the community to help little old ladies cross the street at all hours of the day and night. He probably also rang doorbells for the democratic party, which released a statement today assuring relatives that his vote will be counted for at least the next 80 years as a straight party tally.
