“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
What this cop did was outrageous. Any reasonable person understands immediately that it was his duty to let the suspect shoot him. Obviously this young man was simply trying to defend himself against the danger--which is was entirely reasonable of him to perceive--that the white cop was about to murder him.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
