Walter Scott

Once again the United States Justice System has failed.

A white police officer shot an unarmed black man in the back as he was running away. He planted a weapon on him. It was caught on video…..and then there was a mistrial. Explain to me how the fuck that makes sense.

Yes, he ran. Why? Because he was afraid. Clearly with good reason. The fact that he ran does not justify his death. Not only was he not a threat, but the officer shot way more times than necessary.

As I’ve stated many times before, I support Black Lives Matter but I also support law enforcement. When it comes to both, I expect that people will be held accountable for their actions. Yet, here we are with another murderer walking free.

For those of you who say “All Lives Matter,” where are you now? Or is that just something you say when you want to speak out against black lives while hoping to cover up the fact that you’re racist?

Seriously. I’m numb. But please, go ahead and try to explain to me that this is justice or come up with some other bullshit excuse. I’ll wait.

  1. I was absolutely floored when I saw this on the news tonight! I mean, everything was on video. Clear as day. I don’t understand what the confusion was. I hope the prosecutor moves for a new trial ASAP!😕
