The Story Behind the Memphis Shooting (and Riots)

Because the media doesn’t seem to want to talk about what lead up to this. Memphis.

Just so we have this straight:

  • named offender in a Mississippi shooting flees to Tennessee
  • makes a video saying how he’s not going down without a fight
  • is tracked down by US Marshals – not Memphis PD
  • rams numerous law enforcement vehicles
  • exits car with a gun

This is the guy who got shot by Memphis police and/or US Marshals. This is guy the riots are about. They’re not “rowdy protestors,” no matter what the media says.

In Mississippi he shot a guy 5 times. It isn’t clear to me why, though they were negotiating over a car that was for sale.
