So, Steelers gonna be wearing Antwon Rose Jr. on their helmets.
After looking it up on wikipedia, I am kind of torn about this.
Seemed like a decent human but I never know what to believe about the evidence
Was he unjustly killed at 17? I think so.
Police should of caught up with him later, so he could talk.
Anyway, no idea why 17 year old kids, especially one as accomplished as what I read use guns when they have their fists to settle a score.
Also on this, I have to wonder if the kid was a dirrent coloring if the same thing wouldn't have happened...
edit: but I still think pro sports should not be doing this in this environment. enough already.
If he had been white, you never would have heard about it.
Have you heard of Tony Timpa?
You can see the video of police doing essentially the same thing to him they did to George Floyd here.
Fair warning, it isn't pleasant.
I'm not saying that cops killing any unarmed person is OK, simply that there's a narrative that simply isn't true.
That cops are "killing" black men, and all black men should be in fear of their lives from the police.
The data simply does not support that claim.
Heather MacDonald testified before Congress this summer and her introductory statement is here.
She has the data to back up the argument that the police are not "hunting" black men.
