Dropping this off #AtatianaJefferson

Shot by Police in less than a second. Murdered while gaming with her nephew. Donít you dare demonize her. Donít bring up bad report cards from high school or some fuckiní traffic stop. The custom of demonizing those killed purposefully or accidentally is done. #AtatianaJefferson https://t.co/BmYQ12eAHU

2. My AC died in July, there were several nights I kept the front door opened

Cuz the night breezes helped keep the temp under 90 degrees. It's ending the hard summer heat in Texas She might have been catching a breeze, the smell of flowers or the increasingly full moon this month. And f gun humpers who criticize her for an open door in her.own.damn.house.

3. Really, people are blaming the victim for leaving HER door open?

Since when are you not allowed to do this? Since when is this punishable by death?
I need to remember that the next time my overly sensitive smoke alarm goes off while I'm using my indoor grill. I open the door to diffuse the smoke. Good grief, WTF is wrong with people!! Anyone blaming the victim is an asshole.

4. blame mostly directed at a very raw rookie recruit

shooting "into" a residence -- through a window. It was just plain brainless. Expect (some sort) of charges.

(I'm not a "pile on" type .. but this is maybe a good illustration of a person that shouldn't have been issued a gun and a badge?)

5. The demonizing of victims

is almost as horrifying as the murder. Strange how it happens when the victims are people of color.
