Open Season On Unarmed Black Men. White Cop Kills Another Innocuous Black Man

The Beginning Of The End For Cop-Killer Privilege: "#CrimingWhileWhite"

"Bad Black People." Why Bill O'Reilly Is Wrong Even When He's Right

The Thinking Housewife's Deluded Belief That "Black Violence Has Gotten Worse"

 This time in Phoenix, Arizona. Thirty-year-old Rumain Brisbon on his way to drop off lunch for his daughters, accosted and killed by 30-year-old unnamed white police officer.
It's "open season for killing black men," according to a community leader in Phoenix where another unarmed black man is dead at the hands of local police. An officer said he felt threatened by Rumain Brisbon before shooting him twice in the torso.
Police say that Rumain went in the back of his vehicle and then grabbed for his waist. Where have I heard that before?? The dead man's friend tells a different story than that offered by the police:
Brandon Dickerson, who said he was in the car with Brisbon shortly before the shooting and witnessed some of the incident, said Brisbon was dropping off fast food to his children in the apartment. On Wednesday evening, strewn french fries still littered the front porch.
Dickerson said he never saw the officer try to talk with Brisbon. He also said his friend wasn't yelling at the officer.
"Who's gonna argue with police?" Dickerson said. "He had no death wish yesterday.
And yes, let me just put it out there, he was no angel, but he was an unarmed citizen of this country who deserved due process. It seems that black people have a new bar to jump, they must prove that they are angels before they are assigned any humanity. Brandon had an arrest record which has nothing to do with him joining the long list of people of color killed by white police officers.
