This is a developing story. We will report more information when it becomes available.
Tensions are high within our community right now. Between the tragic events in Dallas, the shootings that have followed, and the division spread by our political leaders, the law enforcement stress level is at an all-time high. It is time for America to step up to the plate, right their wrongs, and honor their fallen heroes.
The unequivocally justified shooting of Alton Sterling has generated a level of outage which is an embarrassment to our entire country. Investigators have yet to release any details on the shooting of Philando Castile, yet people have already made up their mind that the shooting was racially motivated. That is exactly what happened when Officer Darren Wilson was forced to defend his life from an aggravated assault launched by the violent criminal, Michael Brown. Even after the DOJ report was released which completely vindicated Officer Wilson, people have still decided to hold on to the false beliefs which they had held for so long.
Perhaps part of this devotion to the false narrative of racially biased shootings stems from people’s inability to admit that they have devoted themselves to a myth.
