Why is race important here?
The black pusher who pushed the white man with a gun to the ground was much bigger than the man he pushed and he tried to retreat when the pushed man who was on the ground showed his gun. The pusher didn’t know the man he pushed to the ground had a gun. Only the shooter knows what he was thinking as he shot the man who had just pushed him to the ground in the paved parking lot but there was plenty of time for him to get up a story after the pusher retreated back into the store after he was shot. The pusher died from the bullet that hit him in his chest.

The sheriff did not arrest the shooter partly because there was a video of the incident that clearly shows the shooter was violently shoved to the paved parking lot. No doubt that hurt him physically. No doubt from the video that the shot man was violently shoved to the hard, hard ground.
There’s lots of doubt about what was done because the sheriff claims he cannot know what was in the mind of the shooter. It’s pretty clear that he was violently shoved.
The video doesn’t show the shooter confronting the shot man’s girlfriend as she parked in a handicapped spot without a handicapped placard.
Who started this? The girlfriend who illegally parked. Everything antecedent to that finally resulted in the death of her boyfriend who pushed the shooter to the ground. the girlfriend was out of her car, was ignoring the man who told her she was illegally parked and it was her boyfriend who shot
The sheriff is on good ground in not arresting the shooter. He would be on good ground arresting him too but the arrest would be followed by a trial and there’s little chance the shooter would be found guilty.
What’s the lesson for us bystanders here? There are a lot of lessons but no way to really, really know whether or not the shooting was proper. For certain, it would have been better if no one was injured but the time for that is gone. It just seems wrong that someone is shot but it’s also wrong to confront a woman illegally parked in a not the best of neighborhoods place and not expect consequences.

Some people are more violent than others. At least two of the three people in this event were violent. The woman who illegally parked started this unfortunate chain of events. HERE. The man who loudly confronted her didn’t fear for his life because he was armed. As it turned out he killed a man. All we can say for certain is it’s not the fault of the gun.

About Race: Suppose this happened in the daylight. Things might have ended differently. Suppose this happened on a school parking lot and the people were teachers? Suppose the woman who illegally parked had parked in a proper parking space?
But it happened late at night in a neighborhood where it’s reasonable for people to have a gun. And it happened between two black people and one white person, not three other raced people. Would that have made a difference? There’s no way to know for certain but the lesson here is related to the time, place and the three people. That’s what makes it different than a similar confrontation between different people at a different time and at a different place.

The Guardian called Osama bin Laden quote: “an al-Qaida leader.” That’s so very wrong. It’s like referring to Hitler or Stalin as “Western Leaders” instead of dictators.

Hamza bin Laden, a son of Osama has married a daughter of lead 9/11 hijacker Mohammad Atta said Osama’s half-brothers.

Hamza has a senior position in al-Qaida and continues to dream about avenging the death of his father the major planner of the 9/11 attacks on America.

Hamza made public statements urging followers to wage war on Washington, London, Paris and Tel Aviv and is a deputy to the terrorist group’s current leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri. He is an enemy of America. Hamza is and enemy of the pepole.

Letters purportedly written by Osama bin Laden and seized from the compound suggested he was grooming Hamza to replace him, partly to avenge the death of Saad.

In recognition of his status within al-Qaida, the US government labelled him a specially designated global terrorist in January 2017, meaning his assets could be blocked and anyone who dealt with him faced arrest.

LeBron started it when he publicly called the president “U bum”. LeBron is very, very proud of himself for doing that. LeBron then lied about his obvious disrespect by saying that calling the president “U bum” is not calling the president a name. Does LeBron think calling black people a name is not calling them a name too? Of course he wouldn’t say that but there’s no degree in Science in the mail to him. 

LeBron accepted gifts while in high school for favorable treatment which broke all of the rules of under-the-table-compensation. He took a car but hav it registered to his mother to avoid the illegal acceptance of gift rule. LeBron didn’t admit or accept the blame for his actions, a very bad way to develop a good reputation. LeBron in fact is not in any position to be a role model because of his rule-breaking. His good conduct award is coming never.

LeBron is at least a bigot because he believes white people, you know, the people who buy the tickets and watch the commercials during basketball games are racist against black people. Instead of talking about basketball, LeBron disrespects the president of the United States. He’s one of the larger problems that are limiting the happiness of many people.

Trump Mocked LeBron James’s Intelligence and Called Don Lemon the ‘Dumbest Man’ on TV. That’s so obvious is doesn’t need repitition but it has to be repeated to sense the depth of the divide goi8ng on here. Throughout the NBA Finals, LeBron has continuously passed up open shots, clanked late field-goal attempts, and eventually refused to rebound or play defense in the fourth quarter. Not a team player. Not a role model for America.   

Trump disinvited Stephen Curry from the White House on Saturday in response to comments made by Curry that implied he would not attend the celebration. That was just part of a string of comments by the president against some obviously intellectually challenged NFL players who kneel instead of standing for the national anthem during games to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Who supports racial inequality and police brutality? It certainly isn’t president Trump

The Golden State Warriors are another example of no respect for the president. The team loudly, preemptively, declared they would not accept an invitation to the White House, (they were not invited) after they won the NBA championship last fall, a move that prompted Trump to respond on Twitter.

It’s not like black or white people don’t love each other. Nature makes people a certain way. In America the white people are constantly apologizing for their success and trying to assuage their guilt at their success by letting inferior performers get in line in front of them. People like LeBron take immense advantage of that but imagine James in a different role. How hard is that? It’s practically impossible. Take him away from basketball and there’s not much substance left. Turns out LeBron’s the real bum.   .
