The Silence of the NRA
While lots of headlines were about Bill Cosby’s (mis)trial this past week, the acquittal of Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile before our eyes (as a result of his girlfriend’s livestreamed video) was seemingly overlooked. As significant, Mr. Castile, who legally owned a firearm and informed Officer Yanez of that, has not been defended by the NRA. Much like President Trump never Tweeting about a Muslim death (17 year old Nabra Hassanen was killed in Virginia this weekend), the NRA seems to only be upset when the rights of white gunowners are involved. Speaking far more eloquently to this issue (and several others leading up to it) is Trevor Noah from last night’s Daily Show. Please watch the entire clip as the NRA segment comes after some biting satire about the President.
