He wasn't black

Well, some good news today.

Right wing guy with his gun still smoking walks by police and goes home and is allowed to come to the police on his own terms.

Antiracist guy gets a surprise by armed men who shoot and shoot and shoot him dead.

And there are some people who think that the police are not on friendly terms with the right, but are on the side of the antiracists.

There's a term for people who can look at the evidence, and see the opposite of what it shows, but the moderators would object to me spelling it out.

100% Antifa! Pronoun: was/were

Yeah, too bad the guy isnt Black, no Dem politicians even care.

Probably glad he is gone, so he cant spill all the Antifa secrets.

Suspect in Portland protest killing dies in hail of gunfire

"protest killing"? He murdered a guy who was just walking down the street in cold blood. It is on video.

The media bias is amazing.

Oh, its somehow been hushed out of most of the narrative that the victim of the latest police shooting EXPLICITLY stated he was NOT associated with ANTIFA, but was definitely opposed to fascism, and only resorted to deadly violence against an identifiable member of a violent right wing extremist group when the implicit threat such a person represents had been escalated by that members personal actions to an immediate fear of deadly violence.

That is what he said in the interview with Vice, who rushed to interview him, but the video of the incident shows something completely different. It shows cold-bloded murder. And if you google for this "Patriot Prayer" group you find nothing remotely "right wing extremist".

This is the effect.

The cause is excessive police killings of 1,250 White and 250 Black people every year.

If that number was about 50 per year like civilized countries, there wouldn't be the riots, looting and more people being killed because of the people were killed. It's a preposterous cycle.

Either fix the brutal culture of policing in the US, or get ready for an escalating race war incited by the Whites and Blacks using it as an excuse for a race war.

One 5' 4" 150 lb. Japanese omawarisan can use their training to take down someone faster without drawing his gun than it would take five, 6' 2" 250 lb. US policemen to all empty their guns on the same person unarmed person.

OK, so I'm a horrible typist.

Well, how about the average suspect that Japanese omawarisan have to deal with? Are they not a lot more compliant and physically less intimidating than the US counterpart? Apples and oranges.

@RichardPearce: Right wing guy with his gun still smoking walks by police and goes home and is allowed to come to the police on his own terms.

The police didn’t know he was shot involved in a shooting when he ran up to them with his hands up and willing to submit to their authority.

Antiracist guy gets a surprise by armed men who shoot and shoot and shoot him dead.

The “antiracist” guy was anything but. He was ex-military and of late a neo-Marxist Antifa and BLM supporter with a black power tattoo on his neck. He got in an argument with a pro-American protestor and decided to shoot him dead in cold blood. He fled the scene hiding from the police. The authorities tracked him down and when they attempted to arrest him for murder he pulled out a gun to attack the police. He committed a crime. If the cops never use force criminals could just walk away and not be held responsible for his actions. That’s not how a just society works.

So, America is a violent society?

“The violence must stop,” Brown wrote. “There is no place for white supremacy or vigilantism in Oregon. All who perpetrate violent crimes must be held equally accountable.”

What white supremacy is the Governor talking about? The shooting of one white guy by another does not constitute racial supremacy of any sort. In all of the incidents with police this year that the Democrats have been touting as “white supremacy” there has been no evidence of racist intent whatsoever. The facts are the facts. White citizens are shot at twice the race of black citizens m despite the fact that blacks are involved in 40% of violent criminal behavior - well over their 13% overall population total.

The focus on white police and the idea that they are systematically racist is absurd. It’s a lie. By now the narrative has far outpaced the statistics. The is about the maturation of neo-Marxism in America. It is the culmination of the polarization injected into the body politic by Progressives. Political correctness, cancel culture, identity politics, and undermining the American Constitution as a governance document. All part of the Left’s fundamental transformation into a country stripped of its American ideals.

So, America is a violent society?

American society is crumbling so yes it is violent and becoming more so as the ideological divide sharpened by Antifa and BLM deepens. Expect it to get worse as the Left continues to threaten the foundation’s of American’s founding ideals.

He was ex-military 

The DoD has no record of a Michael Forest Reinoehl. Of course he didn't say which army he was in.

He got in an argument with a pro-American protestor and decided to shoot him dead in cold blood. 

Photo evidence from security cameras shows Reinoehl standing on the sidewalk looking in the direction of the victim and his companion as they approached in the distance. Reinoehl then ducked into an alcove in the front of a parking garage to hide his presence and waited until the two men walked pass his hiding place. Reinoeld is seen in the footage with his hand grasping something in his waist band or a pouch. As he passed, the victim is seen looking back at Reineohl at which point he and his companion crossed the street and out of the view of the camera. Reinoehl is then seen emerging from his ambush spot and running in the direction of his targets. Footage from different vantage points shows Reinoehl approaching his intended victims from behind shouting and as his targets turned to face him he shot one of them, fatally.

No argument involved, just a targeted murder. But I wouldn't call it cold blooded. Reinoehl was burning with a sense of outrage and self importance. He clearly believed he was a crusading white knight striking a blow for justice. If you watch his VICE interview and then see the actual circumstances laid out in clear view, it's spooky how deep his delusion was. But the spookiest part is that, this level of Delusional Disorder is becoming mainstream and more and more people have abandoned even the slightest attempt at differentiating between what is real and what they want to be real.
