Hate to break it to Nakima, but she ain't going to be the next Al Sharpton riding this event. Doesn't get any more clear cut than what happened here. Where's the justice for the officer who has to replay that event in his mind over and over for the rest of his life.

My opinion is that the martyrdom of these people only begets more of them because they value their lives so low that the calculus is that being killed and "honored" as a victim is preferable to a meaningless life of nothingness. Completely misguided and sad . If its suicide by cop, then the "civil rights " Social Justice Warriors should recognize that and move on.

Never underestimate an irrational person's ability to rationalize:

St. Paul City Council members, candidates differ in views on fatal body cam footage - TwinCities.com

After the video was released Tuesday, Danielle Swift, a candidate for the Ward 6 seat on St. Paul’s East Side, uploaded a two-and-a-half minute video statement to Facebook saying she refused to watch it.
“You think that they don’t plant evidence? You think they can’t tamper with those videos?” said Swift in her upload. “For the record, I’m not watching that video. … I don’t have to watch the man get shot and killed to know that it was wrong. … If anyone needs to issue any apologies, it needs to be the SPPD (St. Paul Police Department).”



Ward 4 Council Member Mitra Nelson, who last year advocated for revisions to police use-of-force policies, was among those who had called for a swift release of the body cam footage following the Sept. 15 incident. The fatal encounter occurred in her ward.
“Today’s footage showed an officer placed in an incredibly disturbing and violent situation in the face of a clear and unmistakable escalation,” said Nelson, in a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday night. “Still, many in our community are reeling today with questions about what could have been done to de-escalate this incident and arrive at a non-lethal outcome.”
She added later in the post, “This incident did not happen in a vacuum by itself. It happened in a world where white mass shooters are regularly brought in alive by police officers in our country. It happened in a world where black children have been shot by police for holding their toys in public…
“Under our current (use of force) policy as it stands, this instance of deadly force demands a thorough review, and I will be following up with SPPD and Mayor Carter to ask for the policy and process we’ve put in place for these incidents to be put into action.”



Ward 2 candidate Lindsay Ferris Martin said the footage brought her to tears, for both men’s families.
“Jumping to conclusions without all the facts inflicts more pain and anger onto everyone,” she said. “There’s nothing wrong with taking our time in learning the full scope, cause and reaction to situations like this. All the while we wait, we can
continue to reach out to our neighbors in pain and take the time to understand each other better.”

Wow, the cognitive dissonance of that first quote (Danielle Swift) is downright amazing. How does someone justify to themselves having access to evidence, *not* viewing said evidence, and then publicly condemning the person the evidence shows to have acted within the law, policy, and their own natural right to self defense? She must have an incredible dedication to her [cop hatred] viewpoint to be able to simply drive on with her talking points while ignoring the facts of any given case. :roll:
