If someone comes at a cop with a knife, why can’t he be struck with a baton or shot in the leg? And the kid (white) carrying a [semi-] automatic rifle – had he been Black … well I’ll leave it to y’all.
I do sincerely believe that most cops would like to retire with at least one legitimate killing on their record. If not, they will settle for unnecessary shooting or a choking/suffocation of a suspected criminal. Again, mainly Black.
