It seems Deray McKesson is a bit agitated that police didn’t blow away Robert L. Dear, the alleged gunman in the Colorado Springs shooting spree that ended with the death of one police officer and at least two others.
Writing at Liberty Unyielding, Ben Bowles reported that McKesson issued what can only be called an “apples to oranges” comparison on Twitter:

The “we” in the tweet, should it not be clear, refers black Americans, who are shot indiscriminately by police every third minute. OK, it’s not really every third minute. It just seems that way because of the non-stop protests by Pepsi Presents Black Lives Matter.
The group has taken to the street once again, following the release of a police car dashcam video showing a police officer “taking out” 17-year-old Laquan McDonald with 16 shots. If you watch the video, it does look like like overkill, and the officer, James Van Dyke, has been summarily charged with first-degree murder. But justice can’t come fast enough when you’re in hate (the opposite of “in love”). And the protesters are head-over-heels in hate, having screamed “F*ck Black Friday” prior to shutting down traffic on Chicago’s Miracle Mile yesterday and “F*ck France” the day before because no one knows the trouble they see.
“In the meantime,” Bowles said, “McKesson’s implied query over why the Colorado Springs gunman was taken alive and young McDonald was not can be explained by the simple fact that the former eventually surrendered whereas the latter defied police orders to drop his weapon.”
“But why should facts be permitted to get in the way?”
