Our lives don’t matter. Your skin color doesn’t matter. What matters is they – armed government workers – have a license to kill all of us.
And use it.
Which they did on May 22 when Ryan Whitaker answered a late-night knock at his door, which he answered – not unreasonably – with a pistol in his hand. It being late at night and him not expecting anyone.
Before he could do anything – though he tried to do nothing – he was summarily executed by some of Phoenix, AZ’s less-than-finest.
All because “someone” called. About noise. From a Playstation.
Whitaker and his girlfriend committed the capital offense of playing video games too loudly. This triggered the call that does it all.
And does you in.
The AGWs never gave Whitaker – whom they had no reason to suspect of anything more than loudness – time to register it was AGWs at his door. He made the lethal error of assuming that it might be thugs – and was proved right, which he realized, no doubt, in the seconds before he lost consciousness . . . forever.
The mere sight of a man holding a gun within his own home – a not-illegal act and a not-unreasonable act given the circumstances – triggered the man’s summary execution. And not because he was black.
There will be no “peaceful” protests over this – as there were none following the murder of Daniel Shaver as he pled for his life on the floor of a hotel hallway.
Because these murders can’t be twisted to fit a manufactured racial frame.
It bears repeating: Our lives don’t matter. Whether you’re white or black – and whether the AGW who takes your life is white or black.
The late and very great Will Grigg, who doggedly covered the rise of AGW’ing before his unfortunate passing – gave perhaps the best summary of this ongoing tragedy: There is no situation so bad that it can’t be made worse by calling (AGWs).
