Black Police Officer Mistakenly Shot by White Officer | Time.com

Contrary to what some would want us to believe, there is a bias against black people with guns. Of course, the shooter here is claiming that he “feared for his life” when he shot a fellow officer.

An off-duty black St. Louis police officer’s race factored into him being mistakenly shot by a white officer who didn’t recognize him after a shootout with black suspects this week, the wounded officer’s lawyer contends.

The 38-year-old black officer was off duty when he heard a commotion near his home and ran toward it with his service weapon to try to help his fellow officers, police said.
