There are a few things that become apparent when these types of scenarios present themselves.
1. Any time something happens where a white person and a black person are involved people auto assume racism.
The fact is we live in a culturally diverse country where blacks, whites, Browns, yellows, red and every other race and mix exist. They are going to situations, even unfortunate ones where different races interact with one another. That does not automatically mean race is a factor or a cause. This case does not seem racially motivated. It is more a case of a cop shooting a suspect.
2. Every time these things come about many people instantly take the same side they always do. "right wingers" always seem to side with the cop/shooter and the "left wingers" always seem to side with the victim/non cop.
I don't understand why so many people can't put their political allegiances aside and recognize that not every shooting is justified and not every shooting is wrong. Can anyone explain to me why every shooting has to be the same?
3. These cases have little to do with the shooter/victim or justice. It only has to do with political alliances.
Somehow the left thinks that cops are always wrong. And they exploit people's fears of authority. It seems they use these situations to make people of all races feel like they are going to be next. It's always an abuse of power and race and if you don't agree you are a bigot. The right is no better. They use these instances to push the agenda that criminals are going to kill us all and we all need to take arms, and kill at the slightest threat and the left is going to take away your right to defend yourself.
It's sad how often these sad situations are exploited. Not for the betterment of mankind or the United States but rather to push a social and/or political agenda.
Very few look at any situation openly and determine right or wrong. They see cop shooting and they assume right or wrong immediately and determine right and wrong based solely on that. Ignoring the full picture and focusing on what they want see. People are saying this guy was a gentle man, who was on his way to college and going to see his grandmother. Others act like he was a horrible person deserving of death.
Look at the whole picture. Leave your political biases aside. Understand what happened before assuming guilt or innocence for either guy.

Police know worldwide that they'll be lied to regularly throughout their day.
WHAT??!! Oh good Lord, German, step away from the keyboard.Sterotypes are mostly based on truths.
You know what you and racists have in common? A strong trust in stereotypes...Yeah, maybe for someone who likes defending racists. Turning up before the facts are known, to defend the officer no matter what may come up, from a guy who previously posted similar stuff, is racist.
You claimed that "a bunch of southerners" are coming in here to defend the police officer. Granted, I wouldn't say that you were calling us all southerners for defending the police officer as much as it was just you saying something monumentally moronic and easily refutable.I didnt say that you were a southerner. show me where I did?!
I know, right!? Especially when you haven't really been shy with doling out ammunition for the opposition.Why do you constantly insist that I posted things that I didnt even post?!
