Don’t know many details yet, but the pattern of black men being killed by police in traffic stops while white men are taken into custody alive after mass shootings is so striking. It’s not coincidence. #brooklyncenter— Dimitri Drekonja (@Ddrekonja) April 12, 2021

It's fucking crazy how ANY gathering to protest police brutality and racism is declared an unlawful assembly but storming the Capitol, Nazi and anti mask rallies are cool #brooklyncenter— 🏴☠️ꓘПӨ53ᄂF (@NO53LF) April 12, 2021

White Boulder shooter kills 10, including a cop, gets taken alive.— LLORT_OT_NROBER (@LlortOt) April 12, 2021
Black dude gets pulled over, didn't kill anyone, gets murdered by cops.
But yeah, there's no problem with systemic racism in this country.#brooklyncenter #TwinCities #BlackLivesMatter
