KING: Black teen James Means shot and killed by white man who called him another piece of trash

SHAUN KING

James Means.

You will know this name. Tragically, it now belongs in the ever-increasing roll call of unarmed black victims of racial violence.

On this past Monday evening, outside of a Dollar General Store in Charleston, West Virginia, 15-year-old James Means, was shot and killed by William Ronald Pulliam, 62, police said.

Means, like Emmett Till and Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin before him, did nothing to ever even warrant a confrontation from Pulliam. Witnesses claim that what set Pulliam off was that Means accidentally bumped into him while entering the store.

After Pulliam left the store, the two exchanged words a second time, and Pulliam shot the teen twice in the abdomen, leaving him to die, then proceeded to go home, eat dinner, then go hang out at a friend's house, according to a criminal complaint.

7. ".. go home, eat dinner, then go hang out at a friend's..."


wtf is the matter with people? How does the four lives of Benghazi rain bullshit on HRC for years but then there is this complete disconnect with killing an unarmed American for bumping into a white guy....

But hey, blue lives matter, emails... what the fuck ever. I'm just sad.

8. It's dehumanization, pure and simple.

And black people have dehumanized in America since day one.
