This guy clearly was part of the entire mindset advocated by the communists left, led by Al Sbarpton rent a mobs, pushed as part of a political agenda by the Democrats in the big lie and narrative that cops are collective racists.

    I have, at times, been accused of being somewhat naive when it comes to modern culture, both by family members and readers alike.
