So another day, another black thug has been shot. I simply beg of you all to stop glorifying and weeping over these men as if they were saints.
These were BLACK THUG CRIMINALS at best. And you want to go wild on social media, and in public defending and slandering the actions of police officers who are merely doing their jobs? Give me a break.
Men like this do nothing to stop the stereotype that all black men are gangbanging thugs who carry guns and cause nothing but trouble. You want people to stop killing you? STOP LIVING UP TO THE STEREOTYPE.
Alton, for example, was a gang member carrying an illegal gun that he had been waving around in the parking lot earlier that evening. The video clearly shows him resisting arrest and reaching for something. What were the police supposed to do? Say “oh it’s ok Mr. Sterling, because you’re black we simply can’t defend ourselves right now so we’ll put our life in danger just because we don’t want a race riot on social media.” Please.
Even worse, some imbeciles are actually taking money for this thug’s family and they are set to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars out of this. If only it were so simple for everyone to come into that kind of money. His family must simply be thrilled. Except, of course, when they’re not parading in front of cameras giving interviews and all. The man’s body is barely cold and you’re doing the “grieving supportive family” routine. Again I say, give me a break.
Philando, admittedly, I don’t know much about but I have seen the video. His “girlfriend” should be ashamed of herself for not doing ANYTHING to help him. No, she was more worried about filming everything for Facebook while he literally bled to death beside her. She was so composed, I was waiting for her to put on some slippers and light a Newport while she gave her commentary. It’s absolutely repulsive.
Anything and everything for a HANDOUT. Even in that moment, she had the peace of mind to think about what free stuff would come out of this. Philando, apparently, had a gun on him and was reaching for it even though the officer said not to. Um, maybe just don’t reach for it? Let the officer pat you down or whatever needs to be done?
Police risk their lives each and every day, and they get abused because of stupid people like this who want to make everything about skin color. Maybe it’s about not being STUPID and following the law?
You act like a thug, you are going to pay the consequences. These two men did. They are dead let us move on. They now join the ranks of Trayvon and every other black idiot who thought they were invincible to the law.
May God have mercy on all of them for THEIR sins.
