Wednesday’s demonstrations come in response to the long-awaited decision by a grand jury about whether the officers involved in the death of Taylor, who was shot in her apartment in Lousiville on 13 March by white police officers who were serving a so-called “no-knock” warrant”, would be punished.I mean, was it ever in doubt that police who were fired upon by a man they were trying to arrest were entitled to return fire?
Ben Crump, a lawyer for Taylor’s family, denounced the decision as “outrageous and offensive”, and protesters shouting, “No justice, no peace!” immediately took to the streets following the news.
So in protesting the accidental (but fairly unsurprising) death of a woman who chose poorly when looking for someone to shack up with, of course the professional agitators decide to riot and shoot police officers.
Everyone knows that makes things better, right?
Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, also called for police reforms in the wake of Wednesday’s decision, saying the country should start by addressing excessive force, banning chokeholds and overhauling no-knock warrants.
Well, there you have it. The way to prevent black criminals from dying at the hands of the police (which is all these people care about, the fact they die at a far greater rate at the hands of their fellow criminals isn't worth mentioning) is to give up on fighting crime. What a vote winner!
