More State Sanctioned Murder

The next time someone suggests, tongue in cheek or not, that more African Americans need to walk around with guns......remember this story. The "gun" was a cellphone this time. It has been a wallet in other incidents. The rules are always different for us. That's just how the country was founded. Sadly, it continues to be the modus operandi.

I wish Killer Mike and those that listen to him would realize this reality. They love to talk about how all we need is a gun. Then magically the police will stop murdering us.

Too much precious blood has already been spilled. I am not for doing anything that would provide them with a "reason" to take another Black life. John Crawford and Tamir only had toy guns.........in an open carry state.........and look what happened to them. It's almost too much. Smdh.

That makes it a justifiable shooting in some people's eyes. Because who could tell a toy gun from a real one in a few seconds. Which is why there are a lot of people that shouldn't be police.
