    Is nobody aware that the gentleman who died, while very unfortunate, assaulted the officer and tried to take his gun? I mean… that’s not really “innocent.” I agree with everyone here, DC123, for example, who is pointing out that people die every day and nobody cares. What about the cop who died two weeks ago in MO during a routine traffic stop? Shot in cold blood. Did anybody protest that brutality? Or the cop in Jersey City who was murdered while responding to a gas station robbery? I don’t remember THOSE protests. Or all the many young men who are dying in the streets of Chicago EVERY DAY at the hands of their comrades? I mean, can we discuss any of this? No….? Just this one incident….? That’s poorly covered? And about which nobody seems to have all the information? Oh. Okay. Ignorance is bliss, after all…
