Lebron James blamed the police for the shooting of Jacob Blake, fanning the flames of a city under siege by looters and arsonists.
Lebron said, “we are scared as black people in America; black men, black women, black kids, we are terrified.”
Based on one quick video, he has decided that cops could have avoided shooting Blake. No due process for those officers!
He doesn’t know all of the facts and no one in the public does. There is an investigation. But Lebron claims police could have tackled him:
“If you’re sitting here and telling me there was no way to subdue this gentleman or detain him before the firing of guns, then you’re sitting here and you’re lying to not only to me but you’re lying to every African American, every black person in the community because we see it over and over and over.”
Lebron’s a vigilante.
What does the man’s race have to do with anything? There is zero evidence this is race-based — at this time.
A new video shows Blake fighting with the police and possibly brandishing a knife.
