Vigilante

Welcome to Florida — where it’s fine to carry a gun, unless you’re black 

62-year-old Clarence Daniels, a black man with a concealed weapons permit, was entering a Tampa-area Walmart to purchase some coffee creamer for his wife on Tuesday. Armed with a label in case he forgot the brand of creamer — and his handgun, holstered on his hip — Daniels barely made it through the big-box store’s automatic doors being tackled by Michael Foster, a 43-year-old white would-be vigilante.

Seeking help after being in a car accident, Renisha McBride,a 19-year-old young Black woman, knocked on the door of a home in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights last Sunday. Instead of assisting her, the White homeowner Ted Wafe (54 years old) opened the door and shot McBride in the face with a single shotgun blast and killed her. She had knocked on several doors seeking help after the accident. #blacklivesmatter#justice4renisha #blackwomenmatter

Unarmed Navajo Man Killed at Arizona Walmart: Shooter FREE Pending Investigation

CHANDLER, ARIZONA — Kriston Charles Belinte Chee, a 36 year-old Navajo, paid a visit to a Walmart in Chandler, Arizona on Sunday. Allegedly an argument broke out between Chee and Kyle Wayne Quadin, 25, at the service counter. The argument turned into a physical brawl.

According to a statement gained by the Native News Online from the Chandler Police Department, “Mr. Qaudin was losing the fight and indicated he ‘was in fear for his life,’ so he pulled his gun and shot Mr. Belinte Chee.”

Chee was unarmed.

He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Qaudin is now free pending an investigation.

“In situations such as this we call the county prosecutor’s office who sent someone to the scene of the crime and it was determined there were not grounds to hold the shooter at this point,” commented Chandler Police Department’s media relations officer, Sergeant Joe Favazzo to the Native News Online on Tuesday afternoon.

“Several factors go into a decision by the prosecutor’s office. It was determined Quadin was not a flight risk, so we let him go,” said Favazzo.

Hundreds of armed civilians riding in more than 100 pickup trucks rolled into the Michoacan state town of Nueva Italia and were met by gunfire from presumed Knights Templar cartel members when they reached the municipal office. (AFP)
