Police killed a pregnant woman in Texas who was walking to her house on a claim of outstanding warrants. One guess as to her race.

Her name was Pamela Shantay Turner. #sayhername cnn.com/2019/05/14/us/…
I just want to make something clear: whether or not she followed instructions, was actually pregnant or reached for his taser, she did not deserve to be murdered.
If cops can bring in a white supremacist mass shooter without killing him (see Parkland and many others), they can avoid shooting a woman screaming she is pregnant who they’re arresting on outstanding obviously non-violent warrants.
Before you try to justify this, please check your white privilege. Ask how you would feel if this was your white neighbor who had an outstanding warrant for, say, unpaid parking tickets. Ask how you would feel if she was screaming she was pregnant and got shot five times.
And let me correct myself: she didn’t “get shot.” Police SHOT HER. On video. Five times. After tazing her. While she was screaming she was pregnant.

Don’t talk to me about following instructions.
