You know, this reads as if you’re trying to excuse this crime given apparently, blacks kill each other too. This is a little like saying “oh it’s ok that he abused his child given he was abused himself as a child”.

From what we know it’s simple: a guy who happened to be black tried to pay with money that was fake. We do not know if he knew it was fake. We also do not know whether he printed it himself. The police was called, four showed up and they all happened to be white. Black guy didn’t carry a weapon. He didn’t threaten or shoot or even resist arrest. Regardless, he was killed by the policemen. The policeman who killed him was fired from his job, but only charged with murder several days later.

Whether black or white initially doesn’t even matter much. A massive and utterly disproportionate crime has been committed in response to what may well just have been petty crime if crime at all.

In no world is that okay.

And it matters not the slightest whether the black community kills each other on a regular basis or whatever. It has no real relevance for what happened here.

The protests are absolutely understandable. The looting may not be, but the protests are. And seeing it’s not only blacks taking to the street is very telling in itself.
Actually, he did resist arrest and a struggle ensued, hence he was put to the ground.
