22-Year-Old Man Killed by Police – Ft. Collins, CO Riots, City in Flames


22-year-old David Wheat Jr. was shot eleven times by two police officers in Ft. Collins, Colorado. The cops who shot him were not charged by the DA. The city is in flames and the National Guard has been called out by the Governor of Colorado to attempt to restore order.


Oh, wait.

Not enough coffee this morning. That was Baltimore. Here’s Ft. Collins.


And just to be clear, a 22-year-old man was killed by police in Ft. Collins and the officers who shot him were cleared by the DA. There were no riots.


That’s a picture of the shooting victim and his brother in happier times. Wheat had just stabbed a woman in the shoulder and was coming at the cops with a knife when they shot him.

Any questions?
