Walmart security guard shoots ‘shoplifting’ mother dead in parking lot as she tries to escape with two young children :

A few things here:

  1. I didn’t even have to click through to the article to know that this woman was black. There’s no picture of the mall cop that shot her to death, but I’d be willing to stake my worldly possessions on him being white.
  2. The legal punishment for shoplifting isn’t death. Suspecting someone of shoplifting does not justify the use of deadly force. And even crimes that do carry the legal punishment of death requires that the accused stand trial and be sentenced – except, it seems, if the accused is black. Then whatever asshole happens to be around gets to be judge, jury, and executioner.
  3. Wtf was a Walmart cop doing with a gun?! Yes, this guy was apparently an off-duty police officer moonlighting at Walmart, but why was he allowed to carry his other job’s weapon around at the store security job? 

This is disgraceful, and I hope this guy is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
