BREAKING: Ohio Boy Tyree King, Shot Killed by Police. What we Know...
You'll be hearing the name Tyree King a lot today. Here's why...
Police said officers were responding to a report of an armed robbery involving multiple suspects. When they arrived on the scene, they said the victim told them that a group of people approached him and demanded money. The victim said that one of them had a gun.
Police said the officers saw three males matching the descriptions of the suspects and tried to speak with them, when two of the suspects fled on foot.
"Officers followed the males to the alley ... and attempted to take them into custody when one suspect pulled a gun from his waistband," police said in a statement early Thursday. "One officer shot and struck the suspect multiple times."
That's what we know. Actually, one other thing...
Police said upon further investigation it was determined that King's gun was actually a BB gun with an attached laser sight.
That's the golden ticket right there. The #BlackLivesMatter crowd is going to hone in on how BB guns are harmless. Let's discuss that one first. For those of you unfamiliar with guns, here's what a BB gun pistol with a laser sight looks like:
That's a Sig Saur 1911 model BB gun. Looks rather like the real thing, don't it? We're not sure what model BB gun Tyree King had, but for reference, here's another one:
This one is a Black Ops model. With a laser sight. Imagine this being pulled on you. After you respond to an armed robbery. Yes, an armed robbery. Setting matters here. Okay? Okay.
So, a suspect pulls what looks like a gun...with a freaking laser sight attached to it...and police respond the way you would expect them to. Also, why would someone need a laser sight on a BB gun? No seriously, I'm genuinely curious here. Someone 'splain it to me.
Okay, so cops respond to an armed robbery. Chase down the baddies. One guy pulls a gun. Turns out it was a BB gun, but seeing from the images above, these BB guns are modeled to look like guns which fire larger caliber bullets. Yes? Cop does what cop is trained to do: aim and fire at someone who's pulled a gun on him. He shoots. The guy who pulled a gun dies from the injuries.
Those are the facts.
But, fact schmacts...
Tyree King was black. Therefore those facts stated? Matter not. NARRATIVE MUST BE BUILT!
Actually, "hands up, don't shoot" was the lie there, but whatevs. Never happened. Mike Brown tried to take the gun from the officer. He got shot. That's not a conspiracy. That's science.
The irony of Shaun King accusing someone else of lying is LOL-worthy. As is him taking the mantle of the Black cause. The dude is whiter than freshly fallen snow.
Instead of waiting for facts to come in, Shaun doesn't want to believe the facts as they come in. More importantly, rather than waiting for facts, Shaun here, as well as other Black Lives Matter rabble rousers, are already painting their own narrative with broad strokes of untruth. Lies. They're lying. Because as you've seen and read above, it's a pretty cut and dry case based on what we no so far. Do not pull a gun of any kind, even a plastic gun that looks like the real deal, on a cop who has his gun trained on you. How is this hard?
Don't pull guns on cops...
Also, not the first time a teenage turd has pulled a BB gun on cops. Like this incident of a 13 year old pulling a BB gun. Two cops were injured there, not from the gun, but in trying to subdue the little sucktard.
Here's the big deal takeaway, in my humble opinion. If this kid had been white?
Because pulling a gun on a cop? Will certainly get you killed. White, black, Asain, Indian, or transgender. Doesn't matter your age, either. Don't pull a gun on a cop. They will shoot you. I feel like I've said this about seven thousand bajillion times already. Gets tiring.
But let's not wait for any other facts before going CTRL+ALT+OUTRAGE, because you know...
