No understanding, no pretense of safety, no humanity…..just gunning someone down in the street.
Watch as they pull the dog back, and begin to form line, so there is no crossfire.
They knew without a word between them what they were going to do.
No trigger should have been pulled here, there was no attack from him, just a crazy guy yelling in the street with a knife.
Cause for arrest and detention and evaluation and likely forced treatment and possible segregation from the public…? Clearly! All good….but to just decide to shoot him like that?
They got away with this.
Don’t you think there’s was about 50 different ways to do this with this many guys there? Shit, just taser/tear gas/mace/pepper spray/rubber bullet/shotgun bean bag/throw a big fucking net over him/just wait his poor fucked up mentally broken ass out….?
No, they gotta be all-growed-up schoolyard bullies and shoot his ass, a lot, like a rabid dog.
Is this the country we want? This shit is happening every day, more and more, and it’s more and more callous and deadly.
If you’re white, you very likely don’t fully get this…..so ask your black friend(s), cause they very likely DO get it, cause most likely, they don’t live in the same country you do, and never have. Which is amazing, but if you’ve never asked them about it, maybe you never knew….but THEY know it.
That’s not America.
Yes there’s some good cops out there, but until they stop their fellows cops that AREN’T good cops, that are THIS type, then the good ones…aren’t.
