I read the disturbing news this morning that another 18 year old Black youngster was shot and killed by a policeman last nite just two miles from Ferguson, MO. Protests are already starting, again - before the facts are known.
This event took place in a lighted gas station with working video cameras, so hopefully doubts will be removed one way or the other... As I read of the circumstances - apparently the cop was making a 'routine business check' at the station... and when the officer approached, the deceased pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the cop. Bang Bang!
This got me to thinking - did those two NYPD cops being assassinated with no warning, rhyme or reason --- start an escalation of the Beat (pun intended) Cop's paranoia? A target on every law officer's back? Shoot first - ask questions later...
I hope not - but I sure would understand it!!!
