A strange observation

To watch a black law enforcement officer being second guessed, over his action of using lethal force, against a very clear and present threat to the security and safety of his assigned post.
Not only the line of inquiry of his course of action but, the sudden revelation of a previous lapse of judgment, not related to this immediate action, is yet again, in my opinion, the double standard that does exist in the credibility of a black person in this country.
I have seen very much questionable use of force of white police officers against black people yet, I have to hear about any previous infraction of that police officer at the same level.
I know about more of the black or brown person that was killed by a police officer, than I do of the police officer that was "just doing his/her job".
Until now.
