Another shooting of a young black thug seems to have everyone bringing the usual slew of excuses and reasons for why this wasn’t his fault, how he wasn’t armed, and how the Chicago (or insert any city name here) Police Department is racist.
Or MAYBE, he was a criminal.
There will always be rhetoric from the left about how ‘racist’ a shooting is, how all the police officers are racist, how black kids are targeted, etc.
Guess what, folks? It isn’t racist to shoot someone that is pointing a gun at you. Law enforcement is trained to shoot at someone pointing a gun.
According to CBS:
The shooting occurred in the 6200 block of South Rhodes in the Woodlawn neighborhood. According to Camden, the 19-year-old was being chased by police because of a suspected drug deal. A witness said he was shot seven times. Chicago Police say they recovered a Glock semiautomatic pistol handgun with an extended high-capacity magazine.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office identified the victim as 19-year-old Raason Shaw.
After the shooting, a large crowd gathered at the scene taunting police, which prompted a call for back-up for crowd control.
Friends say 19 year-old Raason Shaw had just left them, to get something to eat.
“He was running through the alley, with no gun or nothing because he just left us, so we know he didn’t have no gun on him,” said a friend of the offender.
His sister says he was just going home.
“He was going to the family house, and they shot him,” said Sherrell Harris, Shaw’s sister, standing on 63rd Street not far from where the shooting happened. “They shot to kill.”
So this ‘loving sister’ asked that all the pics of her brother be taken off social media asap – I think she meant that it will hurt the lawsuit that this family hopes to bring against Chicago PD.
Hurts the investigation? Give me a break, sister.
The controversial video that shows him posing with the very weapon that was found next to him has made it back on to the internet, and here it is, folks:
Smacks of destroying evidence.
I’m sure it’s going to hurt his “turning life around, wannabe NBA star, college bound, rap artist, cancer-curing cherub image”.
Is it because the truth hurts these nitwits’ chances to get paid and shows the Police were correct in doing their jobs to stay alive and keep the community safe?
Martin Luther King Jr. must be rolling over in his grave at these fools.
Wow. Just WOW.
