Man chokes K-9, aims gun at officer, officer shoots man, family yells race

Now both the military and the police have to wait for someone to shoot at them before returning fire?

While I think it’s silly that, after all this man has done (if I assume that the story is true as I did not watch or read it), I can’t help but feel like there is an ulterior motive here to try to equate this person’s outrageous claims of race as a motive for police to shoot as a way to generate outrage an cynicism toward anyone that might claim they felt persecuted because of race.
