Video of John Crawford’s murder shows no imminent danger.
We’re all upset — not shocked, upset — that there will be no charges brought against the officers who murdered John Crawford, but even more than that, we’re upset at America in general. When John Crawford was murdered, we had a clear target for our anger: White Cops. Now that a grand jury has heard both sides of the case and watched video of Crawford being gunned down within SECONDS of encountering police, it’s not just about the police anymore. The grand jury said the shooting was justified. The grand jury is made up of regular people that you encounter everyday and it’s those everyday people who watched this video and said, “Yep. Police were just doing their jobs.”
