Police in the small Alabama town of Dothan shot and killed an unarmed white man Tuesday who resisted arrest after refusing to show ID when turning in a stray animal to an animal shelter.
Robert Lawrence, who police say called himself a ‘sovereign citizen’ but which his lawyer disputes, was reportedly accompanied by a woman and children at the time.
Dothan First reported Lawrence became ‘combative’ when asked to produce identification at the animal shelter. Police reportedly first tazed Lawrence to no effect, he was then shot in the abdomen. There is no mention of Lawrence being armed.
The Dothan Eagle reported the Alabama State Bureau of Investigations is reviewing the shooting death.
Dothan First reported Lawrence had a troubled history, having served ninety days in jail this year for making “Harassing Communications.”
Lawrence’s attorney Terry Bullard called the killing of his client “needless” but did not fault the officer who shot Lawrence.
There have been no protests, no riots and no national media coverage over the death of the unarmed white man Robert Lawrence at the hands of police.
