Ferguson Cops Shot A Guy Just Because He Was Shooting At Them

When will the racism stop? When will these racist cops stop shooting people just for being black while attacking racist cops?

Lisa Brown and Tim Bryant, St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

A peaceful day of protest and remembrance dissolved into chaos late Sunday when a man fired multiple shots at four St. Louis County plainclothes detectives in an SUV. The detectives fired back and the shooter was struck, said county Police Chief Jon Belmar. He was in critical condition.

Tyrone Harris identified the victim as his son, Tyrone Harris Jr., 18, of St. Louis. Harris said shortly after 3 a.m. that his son had just gotten out of surgery…

“We think there’s a lot more to this than what’s being said,” Harris Sr. said.

You bet there’s more to this than what’s being said. What sort of country do we live in, where a black man can’t peacefully protest by shooting at cops without getting shot by cops?

Black lives matter. All other lives don’t.

Stay woke.

Oh yeah, and some stores got looted. Another reporter got beat up. This is your fault, white people.

Update: Another young man was shot last night in Indianapolis. His crime? Being black (while trying to run over some cops in a stolen car).
