Shem Jean was an active church member, who worked for a Big 5 Accounting firm.

(not exactly a "thug"...  he wasn't "asking for it").

Amber Guyger mistakenly walked into Shem Jean's apartment thinking it was hers.  

Instead of noticing that it wasn't her address, the furniture was different, etc. she pulled her service revolver and killed him.  She then called 911.

If he had been white she would have paused that fraction of a second it would have taken her to realize that she was in the wrong.

Shem Jean is dead because he was Black.  

Amber Guyger killed him because she is a cop.

(...and I'm sure she feared for her life...  ::roll eyes::) 

To make matters worse, the Texas Rangers have "delayed" charging Guyger.

This is just how insidiously ingrained racism and "police mentality" can be. 

This is the face of police brutality towards Black.

This is why they kneel and why I support them.

Safe Bet you are completely simplifying the issue! Stop reading minds! The white cop was obviously drugged, incoherent, or insane and it had nothing to do with the victim being black! How about the 5 Dallas COPs shot while they protected a Black Lives Matter parade in downtown Dallas? Shot by a Black man! 6000 black Americans shoot Black Americans every year in the US! Last year 19 blacks were involved in police shootings each case involved resisting arrest! More white men are shot by police every year than blacks! Colin Kaepernick is a punk ass who got cut because as a starting quarterback his team lost 11 of 12 games he started in then he tries to make a political issue over him taking a knee! he was radicalized by his Muslim girl friend! He was orphaned and then raised by a white Jewish couple who gave him a good upbringing and put him through college and what does this miserable prick do? He insults the very country that made his lucrative contract possible! What a PUSSY wearing kill Pigs socks! 

WHY WE KNEEL just another false narrative of victimization!

Oh, geez...  that paragraph needs to be shredded, Doc...

"Stop reading minds! The white cop was obviously drugged, incoherent, or insane..."

...and you know this how? Mind reading, perhaps???  ::roll eyes::  (don't even get me started on, it that WERE proven to be factual, then why did the police let her have a gun?)

"Last year 19 blacks were involved in police shootings each case involved resisting arrest! More white men are shot by police every year than blacks!"

First of all, it was the shooter who CLAIMS that the murder victim (i.e. the Black man who was shot by the cops) "resisted arrest".  I When it is convenient for the cops they have claimed resisting for things like none english speaking people not complying with "verbal orders" and "mentally challenged" people that the cops KNEW could't understand them. In other words, I believe "resisting arrest" about as often as I buy "I was in fear for my life" excuses.

As for more white men shot?  You do realize (I know you don't care, but this is for everyone else) that Blacks comprise only 13% of the population, yet over 27 percent of people killed by police were Black.  (don't even get me started on Part II, that only 1% of the murdering police were ever charged, much less convicted.
