The media can celebrate, as another black teen was shot, and only TWO miles from Ferguson.
In the town of Berkeley, an 18-year old teenager was fatally shot by a cop, and you guessed it: angry demonstrators were already protesting.
I’m sure we will find that Anthonio Martin was just another “huggable” bear, and the cop got bored and went on a hunt for a young black teen.
St. Louis County Police confirmed in a statement that an officer from the city of Berkeley had “fired several shots,” saying the cop was “fearing for his life” after a male allegedly pulled out a handgun and pointed it at him. A handgun was recovered at the scene, police added.
“He only just left the house to go see his girlfriend. Maybe he started to run and they got shooting,” she said, adding that she did not think her son was carrying a gun.
We are to believe that Martin was only going to see his girlfriend at 11PM.
According to a statement from St. Louis County police spokesman Sgt. Brian Schellman, a Berkeley police officer was conducting a routine business check at a gas station around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday when he saw two men and approached them.
One of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer, Schellman said. The officer fired several shots, striking and fatally wounding the man.
The second man fled, and the dead man’s handgun has been recovered, according to Schellman.
And then there were two. Yes, young Antonio had a “Dorian Johnson,” because he always visits his girlfriend with a friend.
Toni Martin said her son’s girlfriend had told her about the shooting and brought her to the scene.
I love the narrative that’s already being set, quote:
Antonio had turned 18 in September and used to attend nearby Jennings High School.
So he just became a man and that was taken away from him. Oh, and he “used to attend.” What does that mean? Did he graduate or did he drop out.
The Left won’t care anything about Martin’s past. They will white-wash whatever wrongs he may have done, and they won’t care when it’s confirmed that he DID attempt to shoot at the cop, and has a criminal record longer than an elephant’s…well, let’s just say as long as one’s arm.
The protests are underway, as an angry crowd of about 200 gathered in Berkeley near the gas station and clashed with police as a body lay covered on the ground. These people know NOTHING about what happened. They are just ignorant animals who heard the dinner bell ring.
One has to wonder how many black bodies these terrorists stepped over to get the cop shooting. Black men die every day is epidemic numbers at the hands of other blacks, and you won’t see any protest, just silent acceptance.
Obama, Holder, Sharpton, and the other race pimps are smiling, prepping their talking points, gearing up for the church sermons, and notifying their bankers and investment counselors that more money is on the way.
