Following McDade's death, the National Black Justice Coalition said the"tragic incident should be a reminder that hate crimes against Black LGBTQ" people happen"too frequently" and"often without the national public outcry that our cis and/or heteronormative brothers and sisters receive."

"It is important to highlight the too often ignored violence that members of our community face in addition to the discrimination we may experience because we are Black," the coalition said in astatement."At least 11 transgender or gender-nonconforming people have been fatally shot or killed by other means this year so far, according to the Human Rights Campaign, a national LGBTQ advocacy group.

NBCOUT Protest at Capitol building 12pm and on for the next week NBCOUT I would like to think there will be a day when the media will be held to account. No mention this trans man had just murdered someone else and then committed suicide by cop....just didnt fit the msnbc agenda I suppose NBCOUT This is Trump's America! Wake up, people.

NBCOUT iambilalhassani NBCOUT 😭✨ NBCOUT Before you start your shit FACTS NBCOUT So now it’s ok to point a knife at police? LDeLION NBCOUT Lo q más le dolió a Trump no es lo q dijo Taylor Swift, sino la cantidad de RT’s y Likes q tuvo, una cifra inalcanzable para él hoy en día. NBCOUT Um, he threatened to kill people. He wanted to die by cop. WTF is wrong with you. They have protested CNN already. I hope they protest your headquarters next.

NBCOUT jack you are wanting to help cleanup Twitter from false info? Start here. is deliberately trying to harm racial relations with this post. NBCOUT Nice work NBC. Let's see if we can't stir up even more racial tension by mischaracterizing what happened here. You people are the most irresponsible people. Do you literally not see what is happening out there? HoLee Cow.

NBCOUT Wow, not just an ordinary nobody or worthless straight white man... but a majestic black transgendered man! That makes it horrible. If it was just one of those whites.. who would care? 🤷‍♂️ NBCOUT Race-baiting never sleeps NBCOUT Great reporting & nice headline. Keep misleading people and enjoying watching cities burn. More money right?

NBCOUT Liar liar pants on fire NBCOUT It Was Suicide By Cop...Report The Truth Are Shut Up NBCOUT Yeah never mind the fact that he had already stabbed someone, had a gun and posted a video where he said he was going to kill and be killed. He deserves ZERO sympathy and the officers should be commended for stopping him from carrying out the killing he planned

NBCOUT Throwing gasoline on the fire, eh? You guys are the problem! NBCOUT Well don't let facts get in the way of your narrative & agenda. 'According to police, McDade reportedly had a handgun and 'made a move consistent with using the firearm' against an officer, prompting the officer to shoot McDade.'

NBCOUT ENOUGH NBCOUT Racist promoter msnbc doesn’t post the facts because they know their followers are too stupid to look it up. Twitter should shut u down for trying to promote violence NBCOUT Tallahassee is yet another DEMOCRATIC stronghold where Police kill Black People. See a Pattern? NBCOUT And msnbc cheers.

NBCOUT 'According to police, McDade reportedly had a handgun and 'made a move consistent with using the firearm' against an officer, prompting the officer to shoot McDade.' Yeah that's a pretty good way to get killed. NBCOUT Lfgggg we rioting in florida now too boys NBCOUT Would this have been reported if it was an ordinary Florida white man?

NBCOUT Oh he had a gun and stabbed someone? Is that right? NBCOUT Fact Check: It was suicide by cop, but MSNBC isn't mentioning that because they are fake news. NBCOUT We’re on a new narrative I see. Now do how many black babies are killed via planned parenthood on a daily basis. Or do black on black crime. The racebaiting & division rerun has started, just in time for elections. Shame on you. We see through it.

NBCOUT FAKE NEWS NBCOUT TwitterSupport jack - this is not manipulated media? You kidding me? NBCOUT Selective reporting to sensationalize an event—truth by omission is the current gold standard for the media! NBCOUT No one believes you NBCOUT Wow this is a story we would never see but since it fits the narrative got to get it out there and make people angry.

NBCOUT Really nice - you know that she was armed with both a knife and pistol and was fleeing a stabbing homicide she allegedly committed right? But way to stir the pot... NBCOUT Suicide by cop. Posted on his Facebook that he was going to kill people and go out that way but facts don’t fit your narrative...

NBCOUT report the truth...not your biased hyperbole NBCOUT halfwaynews NBCOUT Maybe you should replace black transgender with “murderer” as that is what happened. Fake New! This is why you are pathetic and no one trusts you. NBCOUT Poor dude just stabbed someone and was armed nbd NBCOUT NBC not telling the whole story, again!

NBCOUT Now do the unarmed white man who was shot by a black officer in Chicago in February. NBCOUT Here we go. You know it's an election year when the media starts covering every death of a 'protected' class. They do this to frame the argument that this happens on a regular basis, and to make it seem like White on minority violence is larger than minority on White violence.

NBCOUT NBC doing it's part to spread false outrage and fan the flames, I see. NBCOUT Another example of how the MSM is attempting to divide us. TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG! Why would they not include, in their headline, that this was clearly a suicide by cop incident? Not catchy enough? Doesn’t follow their 4AM talking points ScrewMSM

NBCOUT George Floyd was a career criminal. People say he was “reformed.” Lies. He committed at least TWO crimes the day he died. 1. Driving while intoxicated. 2. Resisting arrest. 3. (Possible) Forgery. NBCOUT EnemyOfThePeople NBCOUT fakenews liars RaceWarAgenda NBCOUT Insighting hatred and division.

NBCOUT Race baiting bs NBCOUT The cops shot him because he was an armed homicide suspect and drew his gun on them. Key details. NBCOUT Twitter twittersafety TwitterFactCheck You need to fact check this. NBCOUT Is this not the same network that edits 911 calls and dynamites trucks? NBCOUT Perfect example why any intelligent person doesn’t believe one word out of the MSM

NBCOUT All the MSM does NBCOUT 'Isn't it funny how NBC left out the part about how he posted on FB about his plan to kill people and ultimately die by police so he didn't have to go to prison? Or the part about how when he died, he was threatening police with a gun?' NBCOUT تحويل الموبايل الى مايك للكمبيوترعن طريق Wo Mic

NBCOUT This is nothing more than race baiting NBCOUT Tell the full story you ghouls. NBCOUT NBCOUT Ok now report all other races killed by cops this week! You’re nothing but Gas Lighting Losers! NBCOUT Seriously? Report the whole News Not Part Of It 😡😡😡😡😡 You people need to be behind bars for stoking the fire!!!

NBCOUT The entire reporting by NBC on this story is one big fail. NBCOUT Remember when covid was a big deal NBCOUT When are you going to post the rest of the information about this as opposed to putting something out there for the only purpose of fanning flames? This is why you are FakeNewsMedia. Twitter where are your fact checkers now

NBCOUT Delete your account NBCOUT propaganda NBCOUT NBC, do you even *contemplate* being truthful at ANY point during the workday? NBCOUT A black woman then. NBCOUT Hmmmm anything more to this story besides his identity? NBCOUT What NBC won't mention: He asked for it. NBCOUT You’re twisting this story. 1) You’re using someone’s death to promote a narrative, and 2) you’re using that narrative to fuel racial intolerance. Why? Seriously. Why would you ever do this? It’s sick and dangerous.

NBCOUT that is why no one trusts the media NBCOUT Yo Twitter can I get a fact check over here? NBCOUT NBCOUT Calm your tits, everyone NBCOUT NBC Fake News. NBCOUT NBCOUT You people truly are the enemy of the people NBCOUT Inciting violence are we? NBCOUT Hiding the actual facts makes you FAKE NEWS NBCOUT Retract this tweet please.

NBCOUT This is amazingly dishonest and incendiary framing. Hopefully the sweet sweet clicks are worth it. NBCOUT You mean the black “man” who had threatened to kill people on Facebook, had stabbed a person just hours before & who was brandishing a handgun at the time “he” was shot? That black “man”? You want more riots, don’t you? FakeNews

NBCOUT NBCOUT NBC has a (dangerous) news story out for 40 minutes and can only gather 160 likes 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Game over WE ARE THE NEWS NOW NBCOUT Here comes the race baiting. Blanket all whites bad and all blacks virtuous. 99% of white people arent like that scum cop and 99% of black people aren’t like the looters in Minneapolis. For some reason our “leaders” want us to believe this.

NBCOUT Fuck this guy NBCOUT Typical headline to incite anger towards police and imply there could be some racial issue. Pathetic! Why wasn’t the headline “stabbing suspect with knife and gun was stopped”? What would a reporter do if confronted by a man with a knife and gun? NBCOUT Say his name. NBCOUT

NBCOUT The poor man was very troubled but stated in a video multiple times that he wanted to suicide by cop. The police were unaware of this, only that he had just stabbed a man to death. Please update your story. NBCOUT Anybody know what’s going on with COVID-19 ? NBCOUT POLICE MUST BE RESPECTED--NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW

NBCOUT We should burn down more businesses! That will show em! NBCOUT Well, he had a gun and was a suspect in a stabbing. NBCOUT I need to know the colour and sexuality of the officer before I can get outraged NBCOUT Why are offers vets allowed to murder black men without repercussions!?

Florida Police Use Krispy Kreme To Lure Black Bear Off City StreetsOfficers for the Fort Myers Police Department said the doughnuts as well as some blueberry pie-scented spray in a trap did the trick. At least they didnt shoot him like the trigger happy morons in chicago shot the last cougar that wandered in. To be fair, I am also easily lured by Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
