In Chicago, video was released today showing a police shooting: The cops detected 8 shots being fired and chased after two Mexican-Americans: a 21 year old and a 13 year old. The younger one tossed his gun behind a fence then raised his hands — and got shot dead by a cop. At least I think. It happened very fast.
It will be interesting to see if there will be a riot over this, and if so, who will do the rioting? Does BLM think this is an example of evil White Supremacy that they care about. Or is it racist to say that “Mexican lives matter,” just like it is racist to say “all lives matter” (and unthinkable to say that “white lives matter”)?
Or do “Person of Color Lives Matter?”
And will Antifa in Portand and Seattle riot over Mexican lives mattering?
But, we shall see …
Update: The kid (whose nickname was supposedly “Lil’ Homicide”) surreptitiously dropped the gun behind a fence and turned around in one motion. Because he tried to ditch the gun without the cops seeing it, the cop presumably didn’t know he was suddenly unarmed.
Advice: if you are running away from a policeman and he tells you to freeze, raise your hands with your back to him and then turn around.
Update: As far as I can tell, there was no riot, just some protests that actually were peaceful.
