So let me get this straight. So these Black people in Chicago kill each other every day on the streets and you don't hear a peep out of them. A police officer shoots and kills a heavily armed Black man who was reaching for his gun, and the city is out for blood.

How dumb is the average citizen in the inner city??

I've always said you gotta take this on a case-by-case basis. Big picture wise, yes, there has clearly been racial bias at play. This is not arguable in any rational way.

But that doesn't mean every instance of a black person being killed by police should fall under that umbrella.

While I have no idea why the stop was made, and that could change my opinion on the situation somewhat, the shooting seems totally justified.

However, I just still don't understand why people think resisting police, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE ARMED LIKE THAT IN A CONCEALED MANNER, is going to end well for them.

Dude lost his life because he's a dumbass, regardless if the stop was justified or not. But I doubt they sent 4 cops or whatever for no reason whatsoever.

As far as the overall reaction from the public of Chicago goes... well... that's the media controlling your minds.

I don't care to get into the liberal/conservative bullshit. Just know that the media focuses on inflammatory bullshit because you guys keep consuming it.

Cops straight up aren't as bad as they are portrayed. Not even close. Probably some are... but how do you screen for that 100% of the time ahead of time? You can't.

Haven't heard much from BLM since Geroge Soros eased up on the purse strings and put all his eggs into anti-Trump stuff.
