Modern-day lynching
« on: May 13, 2020, 01:02:34 pm »
2 white guys with guns in Georgia stalk and confront a black guy they suspected of...  ummm...  some stuff. 

The original prosecutors are now under investigation because a video has come out showing the events.  Apparently the original prosecutors thought ďwell...  he was black...  and these guys are white...  and the black guy, like, did stuff....  so no chargesĒ.

The video shows the armed white guys pull up in front of the young black man In their pickup, point guns at him and then shoot him when he tried to resist.  Because of the video, the two white guys were arrested and charged with murder.

Now the guy who filmed the incident is getting death threats.  And Oprah has inserted herself into this...  for some reason.  And the guy whose house the young black man stopped at to look at the construction is getting death threats for not supporting the lynching.

Iím sure, if one is an optimist, one can find good people on both sides of this lynching....

Black people are using ď2nd Amendment remediesĒ and patrolling the white neighbourhood where this guy was murdered.

Actual 2nd amendment-"you can have my gun when you can pry it from my cold dead hands". Praise the Lord and pass the ammo.

It was a terrible crime.  However, black guys with guns confront black guys they suspect of some stuff, and kill them literally every day.

Are any of them ex cops claiming to chase down a thief who was actually just a jogger?

Probably not, but they kill a thousand times more people than ex-cops.  And society yawns.

Because black people shoot other black people, lynchings arenít a big deal.

It was a murder.  A shooting to be more specific.  I already said that it was a terrible crime.  It should be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law.  I don't know what more people expect.  It's no worse than the New Brunswick shooting.  Or any other shooting.

You seem to have missed the part of the story that the killing seemed to be ignored for over two months and only was perused when the video got out.

Yes and I fully support an investigation, and anyone involved should also be prosecuted.  But like everything you guys seem to post, itís more panic p*orn.

How did I say that racism is ok?  Just another straw man.

The black guy may or may not have been up to no good.  Apparently he had peeked into another house before peeked into the one caught on video.  Maybe he did nothing wrong. Maybe he was jogging, maybe he was running away (joggers usually don't wear khaki shorts...but maybe this guy does who knows).  The older white guy, ex-cop, had been on an investigation of this same guy back when he was still a cop.

The main moral here is this is why you don't don't take the law into your own hands.  If you suspect law-breaking, you call the cops, you don't chase the guy with a gun and confront them.  The ex-cop should have known this.  Same thing happened in the Trayvon Martin case.
