Black Lives Matter Except When they Don't

Timothy Birdnow

Police officers shot and killed an East St. Louis man on Monday in what can only be considered another "hands up! don't shoot!" moment. According to the Belleville News Democrat:

"The man, identified as Jason Brooks, of East St. Louis, was sitting on a porch firing a gun, according to Lt. Dave Bivens, head of investigations for the Illinois State Police District 11. The suspect allegedly pointed a gun at two officers from the Washington Park and East St. Louis police departments, who had responded to a call of a man firing a gun. The officers fired at the man multiple times.

GUEST BOOK: Express your condolences to the family of Jason Brooks"

The shooting occurred about 6 a.m. in front of 1602 Gaty Ave.

Brooks, who was armed with multiple weapons, discharged a gun at bystanders and then in the direction of the two officers, who returned fire. Brooks was fatally wounded during the exchange and pronounced dead later at a St. Louis hospital."

[...]

"Neither officer has been identified. Both have been placed on administrative leave, pending an investigation, Hubbard and Tomlinson said."

End excerpt.

Did you catch that part in the middle? Why should anyone offer condolences for this dope-addled dirtbag? Nobody who is rational shoots at people on his front porch in the nude. But this is the way it is in modern America; every person of color is a victim. And the all-black East St. Louis isn't identifying the police officers involved. Now why do you suppose that is? I doubt it is because they are white.

In other Black Lives Matter news, a South Carolina fire fighter was fired for tweeting a frustrated threat that he would run over radicals blocking the interstate.

Funny; BLM chanted "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" and has repeatedly advocated murdering police officers, but an exasperated non-threat from a white guy leads to his firing. While I would agree the fireman should be disciplined in some fashion, his dismissal is clearly a politically correct overreaction.
