After the spate of liberal media reportings of UNARMED black teens being shot by white police officers, this thinly penned report of an armed black man in Jennings, Missouri who had locked his mother out of her own home was at least a step in the direction of journalistic neutrality.
In an area close to the race hotbed of Ferguson, Thaddeus McCarroll, behaving aberrantly, told his mom that he was going on a journey or a mission to incite a “black revolution”. I certainly can not blame McCarroll for his feelings after the deadbeat father black man was shot in the back while running from white police officer. The father was not paying his child support and had been arrested for aggravated assault, but the white police officer was arrested, as he should have been, for murder in a bona fide shooting of an unarmed black man.
Thaddeus McCarroll, walking around the neighborhood with a Samurai sword, several knives, and a Bible charged police officers and they reacted by firing a less lethal round at the justifiably angry black martyr for his cause. This action did not slow down the man on a suicide mission and he was then shot multiple times expiring at the scene with body camera evidence uploaded to YouTube to corroborate the police officers version of the events that transpired at this all too common clash between law enforcement and black citizens livid over the way they are being treated.
I did not see any mention of the ethnicity of the police officers who shot McCarroll. Could that mean that they were Black and media could not crow about another instance of White Police Officers shoots innocent Black man?
