A black citizen with considerable record was seen walking down one of our highways just outside Roxboro, NC a few days ago. He was holding a sawed-off shotgun (an illegal firearm). Police were called. Six minutes later he was dead.
As you can see from his record, typical of offenders, he keeps getting chance after chance to avoid prison. Those that actually get committed to prison really have to work at it.
This "Shooting of an unarmed black man" has lead to considerable discontent, rioting and police accusations (including citizens accusing them of "murder"). The officers are, of course, on paid leave.
The legacy media conveniently leaves out the illegal nature of the firearm in reporting, as well as the concept that if you point any firearm at responding police officers, you put yourself at considerable risk.
Amid a sobbing mother (talking about their wonderful son), rioting "amped up" gullible citizens, charges of "racism", and any number of current "riot of the day" motivations, the vehicle camera recordings are soon to be released.
If the recordings show what happened, I have no doubt that they will show a defiant and belligerent sawed off shotgun wielding man pointing it at responding officers that have rightly defended themselves... But possibility doesn't match the media agenda, so not a word has been spoken in defense of the police agency.
The truth? A known belligerent man carrying an illegal sawed off shotgun was killed by responding police. The reason is yet to be determined. When it is, if it doesn't support the media agenda, the sobbing mothers, rioting Leftist subjects and all the rest will fade into obscurity. People will carry the "unfairly treated" chip on their shoulder, and continue their attitude against authority, law and order.
Thanks - legacy media!!!!! You're doing your job for the Leftist takeover. Just remember, when their elites are in power, you're the first to go.
Actually surprised this has not happened more. If this continues to be what the left calls "The Norm" I wouldn't be shocked to see this occurring far more and with deadly consequences. The "MOB" or BLM / ANTIFA (Brown Shirts) keep intensifying the situation and eventually this also will blow up in their faces with a result the Left will not like one bit as they are the ones condoning this behavior.
Even the Nuisance and Disturber (local demonrat rag of a newspaper) said the idiot pointed the gun at the police officer. (A paper that has been the propaganda arm of the democrats for over 100 years and is notoriously anti law enforcement) However, the local TV station, WRAL, only reported what the thug's father said. Still pushing a race baiting and anti-police agenda.
The media is a bigger threat to liberty and freedom than any foreign terrorist organization.
