Assumptions?

Why does everyone assume that a white cop shot Bradford? People are too eager to put an incident into their own biased narrative. The "racists" cops prosecuted unsuccessfully in the Freddy Gray cased in Baltimore were themselves black. Time to back off the labels and ideology and look at facts.

Nice try

I read all the comments and not one said the cop was white. However, it wouldnt be wrong to assume, because most cops are.
If they can assume a man is the shooter and gun him down, I think Im well within my right to assume the cop is white.

Assumptions not based in fact

According to that website, the nearest PD (Birhimgham) to Hoover is 60.7% black.

Not sure how similar Hoover is, but they are right next to each other.

This has to stop

This don't make no sense...this young man was killed before questioning rather he had a gun or not does not give anyone the right ro just shoot him...there's other ways to obtain a suspect without killing him 🙄

Mall shooting

You literally cannot go anywhere without someone acting a fool...whether it's "real gunman" or the police!!! 3 innocent victims here at this incident....with one that lost his life , is horribly sad. I'm sure with the gun law that EJ Bradford was not the only permitted gun owner that had his pistol in hand Thanksgiving night at that mall!!! Unfortunately.....you see a black man with a gun...shoot then and ask questions later huh?? So it goes is this great country we live in. Prayers to the 18 year old, 12 year old, the cop who may be or may not be reeling from the consequences of his shoot now, ask later, and ultimately EJ Bradford's family who lost their innocent son, brother, cousin, best friend. Another innocent black mans life lost due to someone else's fear. He didn't have a chance. So sad!!! It could have been my black son who also loves shopping at the Galleria Mall.

Mall Shooting

@ Iesha G. - Your comment "Unfortunately.....you see a black man with a gun...shoot then and ask questions later" is a bit different take than what is reported "(police) shot and killed Bradford after he reportedly was seen brandishing a gun as officers moved toward the scene of a shooting..." Seems he would have set gun down and held arms up or out when officers approached, if he was not involved in the fray...

Ridiculous

But if he’s legally licensed to carry a gun and he’s out he has the right to protect himself. More than likely what he was doing. Police shows up and see a criminal vs a man that’s protecting himself. These gun laws are for white peoples. Those laws don’t protect us. How man legally licensed white males are being killed for having their gun with them while encountering police?

This country is sick

I thought a good guy with a gun was the best defense against a bad guy with a gun? Or do you have to be white for that to be the case. America is sick with gun violence and racism.
