There is no racial motive behind what happened. At least not from the cop’s perspective. He saw that the public was in grave danger. He did what he had to do to stop it. This filmmaker should be ashamed of himself.
So white officer Alan Horujko who shot and killed the Black Somali stabbing suspect in Ohio is being paraded as a hero. Thats interesting

Tariq Nasheed, a self described “anti-racism strategist,” alleged that Ohio State University Police Officer Alan Horujko was only being praised because he was white and the suspect, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, was black.
Nasheed attempted to back up his theory by pointing to a shooting incident last month in Boston in which he claimed no officers were labeled as heroes. As one Twitter user quickly pointed out, the officers actually were.

Other Twitter users, some who even had children attending OSU, accused Nasheed of attempting to create racial division.
As an OSU mom, he is most definitely a hero to me. No matter what color he is. #nothingtodowithracism

Anyone who stops a terrorist from committing more terror is a hero, @tariqnasheed

um…. what? Would you rather the suspect still be out there driving car into kids and stabbing them?

Funny how you use a color prism to determine who should be a hero.
