Attorney Ben Crump: You Can’t Be Seen As A ‘Good Guy With A Gun’ If You’re Black


Emantic Bradford Jr. was killed in Hoover, Alabama by Police. Mr. Bradford, who served this country, was attempting to help people escape a mall shooting.

Attorney Ben Crump told the TJMS crew that Mr. Bradford’s parents found out that their son was killed on social media and “to add insult to injury,” the police officer who killed him was called a hero. Officers saw Mr. Bradford with a gun in his had and shot and killed him believing that he was the shooter. He was not.

Crump says the family has been saying, “hoover you’ve lied to us before, the police don’t need to say no more, release the video.” Crump believes if Bradford had made one wrong move the video would have immediately been released, but the delay leads him to believe the shooting was in no way justified.

This further proves that the “good guy with a gun” will stop a mass shooting doesn’t work if you’re Black. Crump says when cops see a Black person with a gun, “they shoot and kill them and ask questions later.”

    This is a pretty scary situation, too. because of this day and age of so much technology, we are able to learn more, and faster. Just imagine the abuse and deaths that we didn’t know were going on before the World Wide Web. I personally believe that not only are we getting more information faster, but i also believe that we are experiencing much more. I believe that these shootings and abuse to black people and other POC is happening more and more, because the perpetrators are getting away with it more and more. The white world is realizing that the powers that be do not care about what happens to black people and these incidences are becoming more popular and more frequent.
