Dallas cop case--family, lawyers preempted usual attack on black male victim's character [View all]

* He was a long-time Christian and church member. He even attended a Christian college.

* He had a good position with a noted firm.

* His family is very prominent in their country.

* He was well-known for helping his neighbors.

This background, presented immediately, makes it difficult to claim he was a thug, a druggie, or the other smears usually given to black male victims of police shootings.

Looks like so far the 'best' excuses for the shooting are that he was noisy in his own appartment and that he didn't obey a cop's orders
