Birmingham Police Killed Innocent Army Vet In Mall Shooting

We’re really sick and tired of cops shooting first and asking questions last. That strategy usually seems to leave a bloody Black body behind, often times an innocent one.

Many of you are aware of the shooting that took place following a fight on Thanksgiving day inside a Birmingham, Alabama shopping mail where an 18-year-old boy was shot twice and a 12-year-old girl was hit by a stray bullet. Police responded and gunned down the man they believed to be the shooter.

Well, according to DailyMail, that man, 21-year-old Army vet and son-of-a-cop, Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr., was not the shooter as local police have now announced. The police revealed new video evidence showing that Bradford may have been attempting to break up the fight between the 18-year-old and another man, but he did not do the shooting.

That said, police say Bradford was running away from them while brandishing a gun and that’s their justification for killing him. You can rest assured that the NRA won’t insert their “good guys with guns” narrative into this story.

Suffice to say, the community is angry.

Where’s the justice for Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr.’s family? Does the police department even give a s#!t that they killed the wrong man?
