• WOW: Black Man Shot After Attacking Cop With a Flagpole

    Like so many of the high-profile police shooting incidences that have captured the collective attention of America and the world, this latest fatal shooting of a black man by a white cop could have easily been avoided.

    As you’ll see in the video above, an unidentified man attacked 10-year veteran patrol Officer Nathan Blanford after Branford had approached him as a possible suspect in connection with an earlier assault.

    Blanford can clearly be seen slowly approaching the man before an apparent argument between the two began. The man is then seen sprinting away off camera, only to reappear on camera wielding a giant flagpole that he used to strike Officer Blanford.

    The man struck Officer Blanford twice before being shot at twice.

    “The man was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital, where he died. Conrad said it was unclear whether he was the same man who’d been identified by the 911 caller,” NBC News reported.

    “The officer believed his life was being threatened,” said Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad.

    As I have said before, most of these white-cop-kills-black-man tragedies could have easily been avoided if it were not for the aggression from the black victims.

    Michael Brown attacked officer Darren Wilson and tried to run away before being fatally wounded. Eric Garner resisted arrest several times before being put into a deadly chokehold.

    And if there’s one thing that this latest incident teaches us it’s that one should never attack a police officer with a flagpole.

    This is a sad case of the stupids.

    A man is dead. A cop has been suspended. And I’ll be damned if the professional grievance industry doesn’t find a way to whip up racial unrest despite the officer’s actions being justified by what everyone can see playing out on camera.

    For goodness sake, I hope I’m wrong.
