Another day, another bogus Black Lives Matter narrative.
Every story where they think they have a new martyr appears to follow the same structure. A black man is killed by police (because who cares about all those whites killed by cops?), we’re told he was unarmed, wasn’t resisting arrest, and sometimes even has their hands up during the shooting.
Then within a week or two, the narrative begins to crumble. It turns out the person was a criminal – often committing a crime while they were killed. Or they were armed, resisting arrest, or causing harm to another individual.
Here’s just the latest case. Alva Braziel was shot dead by police outside a gas station in Houston. Initially, liberals claimed that Braziel was unarmed, and this was just another racist shooting by police. But if liberals are claiming that he was unarmed, you can pretty much assume he was armed.
And as the Daily Mail is reporting, the video footage is out – and guess what? The man was armed.
Officials in Houston released video footage Thursday from a police shooting in which officers killed a black man earlier this month.
Mayor Sylvester Turner said the release was part of an effort to preserve community safety in the wake of recent shootings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Turner said the release would prove wrong claims on social media that Braziel was unarmed at the time of his death.
Surveillance video from the gas station near the shooting scene circulated on social media, with some people suggesting the footage shows Braziel had his hands up before he was shot and wasn’t armed.
‘I don’t want another police officer being shot at or killed based on that false narrative, not in this city,’ Turner said.
Davis Haines, an attorney for Braziel’s family, didn’t immediately return a call Thursday for comment.
Community activists and civil rights groups had called on the city to release all video footage from the shooting, and many of the groups have been critical of the Houston Police Department’s history of deeming nearly every police shooting justified in the past 11 years.
Watch it here:
Think this will change anything? I doubt it.
Remember when we were told Michael Brown had his hands up when he was shot, and then that claim was torn to shreds? Has that changed a single thing?
Of course not. Liberals are still pushing that narrative – and in this case, I doubt the bogus narrative that he was unarmed will go away.
