Berkeley Mayor Theodore Hoskins said during a Christmas Eve press conference that a police officer's killing of teenager Antonio Martin Tuesday night shouldn't be compared with police killings of Eric Garner or Michael Brown because Martin aimed a loaded gun at the officer. Martin, 18, was fatally shot by a white police officer at a gas station less than five miles from Ferguson, where Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson last summer.
