White Man from San Diego Waves Gun Around Small Children In Confrontation With Police and Is Taken Into Custody Alive.
This white man walked towards the police with a gun pointed at them and they spend half an hour talking to him before they shoot him one time. If he had been a black man, they would’ve shot him dead. Before you police apologists claim this man has a history of mental illness (he does) that’s why the police was lenient, Ezell Ford, a mentally ill black man, was recently killed by the LAPD.
Or. Or. Maybe.
Cops are doing their jobs and trying to not kill anyone.
Yeah, this guy is fucked up, but we shouldn’t shoot him because he’s white and some bad cops have been shooting minorities.
NO, no one is asking that he gets shot at all. We’re asking why is it that this man, after an encounter with the cops with a loaded weapon, somehow manages to still be taken in to custody ALIVE, while Ezell Ford, who was unarmed, not pointing a weapon at the cops/helicopter, is dead. Or how Michael Brown, also unarrmed, is dead, while this guy is still alive.
Why is deadly force only applied to unarmed black people, but not to armed white people. Cops are “doing their job” arbitrarily and that’s a problem.
How did you miss that, or do you think black people are that crass to call for the death of a white person just because?
