First, I live in LA. I have seen my share of riots. So, store that.
Second: I do not condone what happened last night at all. And I think you know that.
But do you feel in a world where one class of people is coddled by authority and another is shot or strangled to death on the street - do you think things like this happen in a vacuum?
What happened yesterday is a tragedy.
What started it was the killing of another unarmed black teen and a nation that seems to not care enough about that.
We have an imbalance in how certain people and classes are treated. While condoning nothing - do not take a single thing i am saying here as though i am…
…how does that frustration NOT bubble over into something horrible?
This country needs to do some deep thinking and change the attitude over injustices and double standards.
People who point guns at cops are not heroes.
Unarmed people shot are not thugs.
You want me to “think about” this in light of the events last night?
But I will not be the only one who does.
My thoughts go out to the family who lost a son, and all who suffered last night.
Now let’s talk about how to prevent something like this from happening again.
