Do I think it was ok he was shot 16 times? No, that sounds bizarre. Maybe he shouldn't have been shot once.
But I don't care about Laquan McDonald. He was a black teenager with a knife on PCP, pounded on a police car and stabbed a police car tire with his knife.
It is too late for him. His parents failed him. The black community he lives in failed him. It isn't up to the police to protect him, it is their job to protect others from him.
Did the white population of this country fail him? After trillions of dollars spent on government programs? I don't know what to do about the "most vulnerable" segment of our population. Do you?
