Police Fatally Shoot Black Security Guard Who Detained Shooting Suspect



.
When police arrived after reports of a shooting over the weekend at a bar outside Chicago, witnesses say Jemel Roberson, a 26-year-old security guard who worked there, had already subdued the alleged assailant in the parking lot, pinning him to the ground.

Adam Harris, who was at Manny's Blue Bar in Robbins at the time of the incident on Sunday, told WGN-TV that Roberson was holding "somebody on the ground with his knee in his back, with his gun in his back" when officers from neighboring Midlothian got there early Sunday.

Midlothian Police Chief Daniel Delaney said that's when one of his officers "encountered a subject with a gun" and shot him, according to a statement given to the media.

But the "subject" was Roberson, not the suspect in the bar shooting.

1. Black man, white police.

A black man with a gun is never exercising his 2nd Amendment rights. Where is the NRA?

3. The origins of the NRA

Believe it or not, if you go back to the formation of the NRA, it was inspired by the attempt in the south to deny the right to own weapons to African-Americans. Some people realized that if they could deny it to them, they could end up denying it to anyone.

They've drifted way away from their original roots.

4. And the US police originated in S. Carolina as slave patrols.

All white males were required to be members of the slave patrols.

Interesting how these threads all form a racist blanket. Or robe.

5. This is always a danger for CW permit holders

At some of these mass shootings at malls, there were CW permit holders, and none of them (wisely) drew their weapons. When the police show up, they don't know who the shooter is and who the CW holders are. Easy way to get shot.
