Cops keep shooting black people; what’s up!
Yet again we get another unarmed black man shot by a cop…ok, a white cop!
As reported here:
An unarmed college football player was shot dead at a suburban Dallas car dealership by a trainee police officer during a middle-of-the-night burglary call. The death of 19-year-old Christian Taylor has raised some of the same questions as other recent police shootings involving unarmed suspects.
It’s not like the cops were out hunting blacks. Nope. This young black collegian went to a car dealership, broke into a car, then rammed his vehicle into the dealership.
This video discusses his “promising future.”
But as we learn from the Washington Post, we need the FBI to investigate this, I’m guessing as a “hate-crime cop killing?”
The FBI has been asked to investigate the death of an unarmed black Division II college football player who was fatally shot by police responding to a robbery report at a car dealership last week, an incident that quickly spiked on social media and drew the attention of Serena Williams.
Christian Taylor, a 19-year-old player at Angelo State in Texas, was shot by a white police officer early Friday morning and Arlington, Texas, Police Chief Will Johnson announced Saturday that he has asked the FBI to help determine whether there is a possible criminal case over the shooting or policy violations by police. Footage of the incident shows Taylor breaking into the dealership and driving his SUV through its window.
In the immediate aftermath of the incident, #ChristianTaylor quickly became a trending topic and Williams tweeted before surveillance video was released:
“How many hashtags now” refers to the online movements that followed racially charged incidents since the shooting of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and others: #BlackLivesMatter, #AllLivesMatter, #PrayForFerguson, #HandsUpDontShoot, to name a few. Responses to Williams’ tweet were fairly evenly divided among those who agreed with her and those who noted that the victim was doing something illegal at the time.
So what if this young black man was committing a crime. So what if he likely attacked the cop, given his brazen attitude in committing the crime. The Left has set the narrative that black thugs are to be left alone.
What kind of nation have we become, when we constantly hear this type of drivel. Christian Taylor would be alive if Christian Taylor hadn’t tried to take somebody else’s property.
