These Men Were Shot In The Back By Cowards of Officers
I’m angry. Livid! How can people turn a blind eye to this or say this is justified? There is no justification for this and to turn a blind is absolutely disgusting. Two men, two different states, two different sets of police, but the same situation. Disgusting force on unarmed men. Men who were shot excessively. One shot 11 and the other shot 7 times!
Let’s start with Louisiana. A man, Trayford Pellerin, was thought to be carrying a knife was shot 11 times and tased by police in front of a gas station. Shot 11 times when there were four officers for a guy who was THOUGHT to be carrying a knife. “He could’ve attacked an officer and killed him!” I bet that will be common argument. No. They all had tasers and only one used it while the others thought 11 bullets was the answer. This was excessive and they should be jailed.
Now to Wisconsin. The man, Jacob Blake, was walking away from police. They knew he had no weapon. There were four cops. The one that shot him, had a hand on the Blake’s shirt and had more than enough time to grab him and take him out of the vehicle. Instead of using his training to grab, submit him and then detain him, the officer shot Blake 7 times in the back. Cowardly. These officers are trained in hand to hand combat. They can even use tasers! But no, they shoot first. Blake is in hospital fighting for survival that doesn’t look probable.
Sometimes it feels like they are trained to shoot first with no question of the situation. That if the Black community is unarmed, shoot more. This is truly disturbing. You’d think they’d try to behave to try and get light off of them but no these officers just make it worse for the good ones. Speak loud and don’t stop saying names of victims.
