The Green Bay Packers’ coach, Matt Lafleur spoke out about the shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin condemning the officers and saying, “This has to stop,” before having all the facts. He met with some of the players on the team’s social justice warriors committee who concurred and supported him.
Yet Lafleur doesn’t mention anything about vehicles and a church being set on fire, riots, and the city burning, and a police officer being hit in the head with a brick and knocked unconscious.
It’s just automatically assumed, before the details came out, that it was a bunch of racist officers out to lynch a black man.
Here is what is known so far…
Blake has a rap sheet of violent crimes, the police responded to a domestic violence call on him, he was on the ground as officers attempted to restrain him, he resisted arrest and got off the ground, while police had guns pointed at him he was non compliant with instructions and walked around the front of the car and reached inside the driver’s side door.
Here is what we don’t know…
Was he attempting to drive off?
Was he reaching for a gun?
Were guns visibly present in the car?
Did he say anything that was threatening before reaching in that would cause an officer to reasonably believe his life and the lives of others were in danger?
Yet all Lafleur talks about is the “systematic problem” of these evil officers.
