Protestors in St. Louis are all puffed up about a cop doing his job. They think it was ‘racist’ of him to fire back at a thug who started shooting at him. Rrright…
There is a sort of mental illness sweeping through the St. Louis area, where activists have gotten it into their feeble little minds that law enforcement officers are supposed to simply allow (alleged) criminals to physically attack or even shoot at police without recourse.
Last night, a protest turned violent 24 hours after Vonderrit Deondre Myers was shot and killed by a St. Louis police officer working a neighborhood patrol while off-duty and in uniform.
The veteran officer chased a trio of individuals after than ran from him, and held his fire, even after seeing what appeared to be a gun in the possession of one of the men. He only returned fire after that man— Vonderrit Deondre Myers—spun around and fired three shots, attempting to kill the officer. Myers would have likely fired more shots, but his stolen gun jammed.
The veteran officer fired 17 shots back at Myers, striking him “seven or eight times.” All but one of the bullets struck Myers in the lower part of his body, meaning his pelvis and or legs. The presumed fatal shot struck Myers in the head.
Incredibly, activists are blaming the police officer for daring to do his job.
“It`s a clear case of this young man being gunned down by an insensitive white officer who was off-duty,” Akbar Muhammad, part of a coalition seeking justice in the Brown shooting, told CNN affiliate KTVI. “He chased them off a corner.”
