Many NFL players have to be smart, to get where they are. So, file this one under “Normally-smart people doing remarkably-stupid actions”:
To review, and based on available evidence:
- Michael Brown was not shot/killed as he peacefully tried to surrender to a cop. No. Rather,
- Michael Brown was shot/killed after physically attacking a cop in his car and trying to gain control of his gun; and then, during a foot chase, turning back toward the cop and charging at him. (Eyewitness testimony: Michael Brown “did some sort of body gesture, I’m not sure what it was, but…I could say for sure he never put his hands up. After he did his body gesture, he ran towards the officer full charge.”)
- It’s a tragic incident – in which the cop, Darren Wilson, seems to have reacted reasonably and did his job.
- There is plenty of OTHER stuff happening in this country that deserves urgent protest. (Examples: Blacks killing each other, in the inner cities. Welfare dependency. Obama lying. Obama violating the Constitution. Obama policies that rip off working people for the sake of lazy people. Etc.) So, where are those protests?
UPDATE: Charles Barkley might agree. The former NBA star said, “The true story came out from the grand jury…key forensic evidence, and several black witnesses that supported Officer Darren Wilson’s story…I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore. And, that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore, because they (the media) love this stuff, and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.”
