Police shooting

by -

“We out here like the Taliban” one protester shouted into a Facebook live video of Mills Shaka Zulu Gill as protests erupt after another police shooting.

Around 5:15 on Monday evening in Charlotte North Carolina, a black police officer shot a disabled black man waiting for his daughter to get home from school. Those are the facts we know for sure.

What we don’t know is weather the man was carrying a gun or was carrying a book.

Police say the man that was shot brandished a weapon and that is why the police shot him.

The family and eyewitnesses say that the man was carrying a book and the police had no reason to shoot and kill him.

The conflicting sides of the story and the Facebook live feed from a local resident named Mills Shaka Zulu Gill, is what fanned the flames of the protestors.

It started out as a few people hanging out and yelling at the police, but Shaka Zulu kept telling people to share his video and they did. At one point over 100,000 people were watching and the video received almost two million views.

People from all over kept showing up through the night. By 9pm the police had arrived with riot gear, but it wasn’t enough.

The crowd protesting for Black Lives Matter destroyed police cars, threw rocks and insults at cops and marched six miles to shut down interstate 85.

Twelve officers and at least one protestor were injured.

The protests lasted through the night and ended in the early morning on Tuesday.

Despite the good intentions of Shaka Zulu Gill, he was one of the main people that got into the faces of the police and antagonizing them.

He was the first one to start destroying one of the police cars. He was seen on Facebook live with a gun at one point and he smoked weed several times during the five hours he broadcasted.

At the end of the night, he went home and wasn’t arrested. None of the main agitators were arrested.

Instead, the police just stood their ground and launched tear gas and shot rubber bullets into the crowd.

The protestors looted trucks that they stopped on the highway, a Walmart that was along the way and countless other acts of vandalism.

The protest was not peaceful in any way. It was violent, only the police acted in a peaceful manner.

This isn’t going to stop either. The more black men that police kill, the crazier the protests are going to be until we see a full blown riot with dozens of police and protestors killed. It almost happened last night. It might happen tonight.

Charlotte is bracing itself for another round of protests and tonight people will be ready on both sides. The police will have their plan, but the protestors will be more organized and out in larger numbers tonight.

Hopefully peace can prevail, but after the way things went last night, tonight will most likely be a lot worse.

Milwaukee burned over the weekend because the news spread that a white cop shot a fleeing black man in the back. The facts prove something different.

On Saturday afternoon, the Milwaukee police pulled over a suspicious vehicle and the two occupants immediately fled on foot.

One officer was in a foot pursuit when Sylville Smith started to raise a stolen gun.

The cop demanded the suspect to drop the weapon and instead continued to raise the weapon. That is when the officer fired on the man.

Immediately after the shooting, the local residents were angry with the police.

Apparently it doesn’t matter the police were trying to keep the neighborhood safe and a man with a stolen gun tried to raise a gun on the officer.

Apparently it doesn’t matter the cop was black, unlike the reports that spread like wildfire on social media.

Even as reports clarified some details on Sunday after the original riots the previous night, people took to the streets again on Sunday night for more “protesting” and burning cars.

The entire craziness in Milwaukee is due to false reporting and the spread of lies on social media. If the initial reports said a black man with a stolen gun attempted to fire on a black officer during a foot chase, and the officer shot him, then we wouldn’t have seen the riots.

Some people in America are reacting to these shootings too quickly and they quickly turn to violence.

As Americans we understand there is a problem when we see videos like the one below.

But, the problem will not get solved when people react violently to police who are actually doing their job. It is time to end the violence and find some peaceful solutions.
