Another POC dies in their home at the hands of a trigger-happy Dallas cop.


Ashley Carr, Jefferson’s oldest sister, said her sister had recently moved home to care for her mother, who was in declining health and remained hospitalized Monday.

The night she was killed, Jefferson was simply enjoying life in her home, “where no one would have expected her life to be in harm’s way, especially not at the hands of a civil servant who had taken the oath to serve and protect," Carr said.

POC will stop calling the police for anything because to do so is to risk death.

It's all good. She had a gun for self-defense. Guns magically protect everyone. More guns, more safety, right? Baseball, apple pie, Chevrolet, and guns.

Neighbors called the police because the front door had been left wide open. She heard noises outside and pointed a gun at the window just as police were peering inside. Oops, it seems they also carry guns for self defense. Too bad, so sad. The community and those who filed murder charges don't seem to understand that people with guns for self-defense couldn't possible commit a crime!

In other news, another gun-worshiper heroically self-defended themselves from an 18-month-old child. Just imagine what could have happened if they didn't have a gun!

An interesting confluence of events... A cop making a safety check draws his gun shines a light into a house, sees a woman who may or may not have had a gun drawn, shoots and kills her. The cop never identifies himself as a cop. This takes place in Texas with both open carry and "stand your ground". The woman has every right to be sitting in her house with a gun especially when someone outside the home is shining a light in and pointing a gun.

The cop could have taken cover and identified himself but chose to shoot immediately. The woman could have shot as well given some guy pointing a gun at her. However, as the unfortunate Mr. Marvin Guy https://www.change.org/p/bell-county-district-attorney-s-off... will tell you "stand your ground" does not quite work so well if you are Black. Five years later he is still in jail for shooting a cop breaking into his home during a no-knock raid in Keileen, TX. The cops were looking for drugs; no drugs were found. Curiously the same thing had happened a few months earlier in another part of Texas where someone shot a cop breaking into their home during a no-knock. However, this time drugs were found but the homeowner faced no murder charges because ...

Likewise, the Dallas cop that was most recently convicted of murder could have easily retreated to the hallway rather than shooting her neighbor in his own apartment. The judge, in that case, told the jury that because she believed she was in her own apartment, "Stand your ground" could have applied. Fortunately, the jury ignored the advice.

It would not be surprising if the cop in the current case makes a "stand your ground" defense as it seems that "The Castle Doctrine" on which it is based does not really apply to Black folk sitting in their own homes but may protect intruders if the intruder is a cop.
