Again another shooting of an unarmed person has been caught on video and is now going viral on social media and the Internet. Terence Crutcher was seen on video being shot by police after his hands were raised, in what appears to be a gesture letting officers know that he was unarmed and posed no threat. Now since Mr. Crutcher is now dead he can not speak for himself as to what happened in the case. We only have the video and the officers testimony. The details of the case will come out as the investigation continues. We are all aware of police shootings and everyone has their own opinion about them. Whether the person is blue, black, purple, yellow, white, or any other color in the visible light spectrum American citizens are still being on the receiving end of an officer’s gun. Every case is its own and should not be in comparison with any other. Some have been wrong and some have been justified. In the end a life is forever gone from this existence……. But on the other hand there does not seem to be much outrage from the American public as a whole. No matter how you describe yourself we are all still human beings and people are loosing their lives. It’s beyond amazing to see the outrage over a quarterback and other athletes sitting down during the national anthem. Hell, they are better than most, at least they have a legitimate reason for it. But to see people call Collin Kaepernick different names and for him to receive death threats only points to the misguided anger in the country. Everyone has the right to speak their opinion of him and his choice for how he chooses to protest. And that’s ok. But to see more outrage over that situation and no outrage over police shootings or the Pentagon loosing $6.5 trillion will forever blow my mind. So I ask the American people, “What are you really mad about?
