A few days ago, here in Palm Beach County, where I presently reside, no cracker county by any measure, a well known and respected black musician, coming home, late at night, from a gig, whose car stalled on the exit ramp of I-95, and who was awaiting assistance, was shot and killed by a plainclothes police officer in an unmarked car. From a statement made by the police, I learned that the officer was under no obligation to identify himself. A black man, sitting alone and afraid in a stalled car, is legally expected to submit to an unidentified white man who approaches the car.
Let us do a "thought experiment" and suppose that a black undercover police officer approaches an armed white man, sitting in a car, and is killed by him, is the white man liable for homicide "in a stand your ground" state? Does one honestly think that had the black officer killed the white motorist that he would just walk away from the incident?
I hear the anguished cries of black women who bear sons in this country.
