Police: Glad We Shot a White Guy

Yes, it’s really gotten this bad.

From the Daily Caller:

A Kentucky sheriff said that if one of his deputies had to shoot somebody — as happened Sunday morning — he’s glad that that somebody was white.

Nelson County Sheriff Ed Mattingly made the surprising admission during a press conference on Monday. He was providing details on the Mother’s Day shooting in Bardstown of 25-year-old John Kennedy Fenwick, who is white.

“We do not want trouble. We are glad that he is white, and we shouldn’t have to be worried about that,” Mattingly said.

He made the remark in response to a reporter’s question about whether the sheriff’s department was worried about backlash from the community over the shooting. A sheriff’s deputy shot Fenwick twice after he rammed a stolen pickup truck into three separate police vehicles, causing one to burst into flames.

When there is a very real fear that doing your job (i.e. using force on a violent scumbag) as a policeman when the violent scumbag is of a certain skin color will result in massive riots and property destruction, society is in a bad way.

Our police force exists to protect the lives and property of the innocent from those who have demonstrated a willingness to threaten those lives and property.  When they do that, how about we check all the facts before we destroy even more property and harm more people in the name of a dirtbag?  Is that too much to ask?

Leaving the police fearful of doing their job when the suspect’s skin is a certain color is a sure way to foster more crime in the areas where people of that same skin color live…and in society in general.

    Wow… what a sad commentary on our insane society — where supposed “racism” is being violently protested by people who are practicing the greatest racism themselves.

      I don’t think he meant that it’s better to shoot white guys.

      He’s just saying that had the perp been black, he would have expected problems that they now don’t have to worry about. I think it’s an erroneous assumption: criminals of all colors are shot all the time, and most receive no recognition.

      By the way, don’t you wonder why Asians comprise such a small percentage of the US penal system? There are 707 people in prison per 100,000 in America, most of whom are white, black or Hispanic.

      In China, it’s about 170 per 100,000. In Japan, it’s 51.

      Why do you suppose that is?

        You must have misunderstood my post because what you’re saying is precisely what I meant.
