Two men. One armed and violent, the other unarmed and nonviolent. One white, one black, one dead.

A Good Example of what Marvin and Janelle keep pointing out.

As you may know, University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing shot and killed an unarmed black man, Sam Dubose, after a routine traffic stop earlier this month. After shooting Dubose, Tensing and his partner concocted a story about being dragged and nearly run over by the car. After being indicted for murder on Wednesday, we found that the video showed nothing like this ever took place. Dubose was peaceful, nonviolent, and unarmed, but had his head blown off by the police.

Meet Glen Ellison.

To set the scene, understand that the police were called on Glen Ellison by his neighbors because he was outside waving a firearm at people.

When a deputy arrived, he found Glen Ellison, 67, outside the home. Chief Pollan says the deputy approached Ellison who was extremely combative. Ellison walked over to a truck and picked up a handgun out of the back and got into a scuffle with the deputy.

The man hit the deputy in the head with the weapon.

Let's stop right there.

Glen Ellison was suspected of being armed. When police arrived he was "extremely combative." Police then allow him to walk to his truck and get a handgun. He then gets into a "scuffle" with the police WHILE holding the handgun. Glen Ellison then hits the officer over the head with the gun.

Please show me the story of ANY black man where this has happened.

Amadou Diallo was shot at 41 times by the NYPD when he showed them his wallet.

Kendrec McDade was shot repeatedly when police said they thought his cell phone was a handgun and even claimed to see and hear the bullets come out of it.

Rekia Boyd had her head blown off in Chicago when an officer claimed her boyfriend's cell phone looked like a gun. Nobody was armed but the officer.

And now back to Sam Dubose, below.

Unlike Glen Ellison, Dubose wasn't combative, wasn't armed, didn't grab a weapon, none of that. However, Officer Ray Tensing, was apparently so intimidated by one thing—Dubose's blackness—that he shot him in the back of the head and tried to cover it up.

For Glen Ellison, the story doesn't end the same way.

The deputy wrestled the gun away from Ellison, who ran inside his home, locked the door and refused to come out.

Pollan says they forced their way into the home and took him into custody

Having fought an officer and then hit him with the gun, Ellison was then given the time and space to run away, go into a house, and barricade himself until police eventually got in and took him into custody.

From all appearances, he doesn't even have a scratch on his face.

Are you following me here?

One man was violent, armed, combative, aggressive, and assaulted an officer, but he was white, and he is alive today.

Another was nonviolent, unarmed, peaceful, but black, and today he's dead.

This is America. 2015.

Blue States seem to have more of this, odd.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
