Black woman shot by police; liberals REFUSE to admit…

Meet Korryn Gaines, the woman likely to be the latest martyr for Black Lives Matter. If you didn’t hear about her in the media, you likely saw a hashtag in her name on your twitter feed. Here’s just a sampling:

As conservative blogger Matt Walsh says, take note of everyone outraged by the death of Korryn Gaines, and then remember to never take them seriously again. Here’s the back story.

Officers went to Gaines’apartment Monday morning to serve her arrest warrants. This included a number of warrant squad members, and an uniformed officer. There is where things escalated. According to

Police said the officers knocked on the door of the apartment and identified themselves as police. The department spokesperson described in the press release what they say happened next:

No one answered the door, but the officers heard the voices of a man and woman coming from inside the apartment, which they knew to be the address of the subjects. They also heard a child crying. After five to 10 minutes, one of the officers obtained a key to the apartment from the landlord and used it to open the door. The officer saw a woman sitting on the floor and pointing a long gun at him; this woman matched a photo of the woman sought in the warrant.

Yeah…so at this point you’d probably think the shooting had more to do with her pointing a shotgun at police than her skin color. Congratulations, you’re rational. Here’s some more details to the story:

She said to an officer “If you don’t leave, I’m going to kill you.” According to officers: “She refused and pointed the long gun at tactical officers several times. There was a clear line of sight from where the officers were staged in the hallway through the open door to where Gaines was positioned inside the apartment,” police said. Johnson said his officers showed “great restraint during this dialogue.” At 3 p.m., after several hours of negotiations, police said Gaines pointed her weapon “directly at a tactical officer,” and told him, “If you don’t leave, I’m going to kill you.” Note that a SWAT team didn’t come until after she pointed her shotgun at the officers.

She broke the law and resisted arrest…. a lot. Is there a single BLM martyr with a rap-sheet longer than this article? Apparently not: According to Maryland court records, Gaines was was stopped on March 11 in Catonsville by Baltimore County Police. She was charged with several traffic violations, including operating an unregistered motor vehicle, driving without current tags, driving an uninsured vehicle, failure to display registration card on demand and driving a vehicle on a highway with a suspended registration. She was also charged with resisting/interfering with arrest, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and littering, all misdemeanors. On July 13, she was charged with failure to appear in court and a warrant for her arrest was issued.

She used her child as a human shield.

Admittedly, it’s doubtful we’ll hear quite as much about this shooting as we did about Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, the latter whose shooting actually did appear to be unjustified. I’ll conclude with some of the more rational Tweets I came across:
