Another consequence… being back at a familiar place: square one. The young white male who walked into a Missouri Walmart a few weeks go armed with an assault weapon wasn’t gunned down. Nor was the one who described himself on Facebook as “”Your Next Mass Shooter”, but this young brotha shopping at the Galleria with his pregnant girlfriend was the perceived threat. And given the murder first ask questions later response by police why wouldn’t run in fear of his life? And miss me with the “But, but, but he had a gun” attempt to justify. Why wouldn’t he have a gun? St. Louis is the most dangerous, most violent murder capital of the county. Police aren’t protecting black people. This young brotha had a family to protect. A criminal didn’t kill him. It was the police.
“Police didn’t provide any information on why the officer discharged his firearm. “
