As you can see by the video an apparently unarmed black man was shot when he reached inside of a vehicle. Things the video that are not known, are what he was reaching for inside? What he had said to the officers? Had he been known to have weapons in the past?

If there is an increase in attacks against police across the country, then it stands to reason that more and more police shootings will happen as the polices are backed into a corner and have to defend themselves.
I say we wait until the investigation is over before we pass judgement, but that has never been the way of the left, the way of reason. We need to make sure we vote red in November, This may be the last election we see for a while, for if the party who has police being defunded is elected we will see more and more lawlessness.
