“Officer Shoots Violent Felon In Self Defense”
In any world where sanity mattered, that would be the headline dotting a number of local Wisconsin news outlets over the past few days, and the story wouldn’t appear anywhere else.
Unfortunately, we live in a world turned upside down, where criminals are given extra rights, and police officers and law abiding citizens are treated like villains when they dare defend themselves against feral human predators.
We saw it with Trayvon Martin, a street-fighting suspected burglar, confirmed drug abuser, and illegal gun dealer, who was shot while “unarmed” and attempting to beat a man’s head to jelly against a concrete sidewalk, after attacking him from behind.
We saw it with Michael Brown, a strong-arm robbery suspect and attempted cop-killer who charged a police officer and died in a second and fatal attempt to take that officer’s service weapon.
And we’re seeing it again with Tony Robinson.
