Yes, it is sad an 18-year-old was shot and killed in St. Louis. It doesn’t matter what color his skin was. Any young teen killed is a tragedy.
What I’ve seen on television and heard in the news prevents me from making any conclusion this early in the investigation as to who was at fault. I’ve heard the boy tried to get the police officer’s weapon. That would mean a “clear and present danger” to the officer, perhaps resulting in the officer’s death.
I’ve heard the boy raised his arms and the officer shot him several times anyway.
I believe that’s a bunch of crap.
I believe this incident is being used by blacks, African-Americans, Negroes (whatever) to further fuel racist hatred.
No matter what happened and what the outcome of the investigation will be, African-Americans show once again how uncivilized, how savage, how despicable, how unlawful, how larcenous, how dishonest, how totally ignorant they are.
Blacks used this incident to riot and steal. They broke store windows and looted the stores. I saw on television a black woman rushing to the opening in a store window so she could get inside and grab whatever loot she could get her black hands on.
I saw African-Americans show the nation how ignorant and how terrible they can be.
When was the last time you saw Caucasians riot and loot? When was the last time you saw Hispanics riot and loot? When was the last time you saw Asians riot and loot?
Then, African-Americans wonder why they are scorned and not trusted.
Well, NAACP, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jr, and the African-American/Black public at large: the recent riots and looting in St. Louis is a perfect example why so many people have a problem with African-Americans.
The claim the police officer “murdered” the boy while the boy’s hands were up is nothing more than a vicious lie. And the fact that a black made that claim does not surprise me in the least. It was uttered with the intent to cause racial hatred of blacks for whites.
God gave us ten commandments. I am willing to bet a majority of Christians (or a huge number of people who claim to be Christians) completely forgot about at least one of the commandments which states it is a sin to “bear false witness against thy neighbor.” In other words, it is a sin to tell lies about people.
The accusation that the police officer murdered the boy while his hands were up is a lie about what happened. It is a lie about what the police officer did. The black guy, who on TV looked like a dirty street hoodlum, who uttered that accusation committed a sin, and I have no doubt he either is not aware of that commandment or doesn’t give a damn about it, anyway.
As long as you blacks fuel racial hatred, bigotry, and racism, discrimination will never die.
Clean your hearts of the hatred which lives and breeds there, and until you do there will always be disgust for and of your community. You certainly have earned the disgust other races have for you.
This incident was used as an excuse to destroy property and steal.
Shame on all of you.
