I was reading through this article about the shameful execution of 4 police officers by some crazed gun man in Seattle. I was stunned when I read the following line:
The gunman was described as a black man in his 20s or 30s, between 5-feet-7 inches and 5-feet-10-inches, and ran north on Steele Street South after the shooting. He was wearing a black coat over a gray hooded sweat shirt and bluejeans, Troyer said.
Police took a man into custody at a Parkland house nearby after he apparently called 911, claiming to be the shooter. But the man was not linked to the crime, Troyer said.
The concern with me is not that he was Black per se. I really was hoping that at least one of the cops got off a shot that hit him right between the eyes. Instead I was guilty of "regional profiling". When I saw the location of Seattle, the fact that it was a coffee shop rather than an arrest scenario I had automatically assumed that the shooter was a White male.
This can't be tolerated. Whatever beef this killer had with the cops there is no justification what so ever in opening fire on dedicated public servants who have never done anything to this guy before.
I hope that the local, state and federal authorities execute a "death by cop" death penalty upon this guy long before a Seattle area jury chose to give him a life sentence.

I fully understand why police need more than TASERS on their belt.
There goes the drive for AfroSpear's December 4th "Anti-Police Taser" action.
If they take to the streets of Seattle after this police killer murdered 4 officers - we might indeed see them get "Electrocuted While Black".
