Cops Successfully Disarm A White Person Without Killing Them Part 7

Jesse Williams: “We know that police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm and not kill white people everyday.”

7. In San Diego, Lance Tamayo pointed his loaded 9mm pistol at police officers near a park where small children were playing.



Eventually, an officer shot Tamayo one time to disarm him. The police then called his cell phone and proceeded to speak to him for 15 minutes to negotiate a surrender.

KING: Second Amendment protections don’t apply equally to African-Americans

SHAUN KING

If I've learned anything over the past two years of the Black Lives Matter movement, it's that the right to bear arms, a constitutional right protected by America's Second Amendment, does not apply equally to whites and African-Americans. Quite the contrary. Being seen with a gun — fake or real, licensed or not, or even being suspected of having a gun or something that may not even be a gun — while black, in the presence of anybody who isn't black, particularly if they are police officers, is damn near a death wish.

This is not hyperbole.

I encourage you to perform the following test:

Ask your white friends or co-workers, on a scale of 1-10, how nervous would they be, with 1 being not at all and 10 being on the verge of a panic attack, if they possessed a legally owned firearm in the presence of police during a routine traffic stop.

Now, ask your black friends or co-workers the very same question.

Random thoughts...

1. Trump is actually "winning." He's winning so much that people are getting sick of it, just as he promised everyone.

2. Apparently, we're supposed to regard law enforcement as some sort of land predator and behave around them as if we are their prey.

3. The world right now is like a pot of water. The temperature is slowing rising and we're like all crabs in it, with some of us pulling others back into the water and to all of our eventual doom.

4. When life is fleeting, everything is unfinished business in the end.

5. You can never have all the time you need to tell the people that you love how much you love them. When they're gone, you realize that you've never told them enough.

6. Sharing really is caring.
