So, stop me iF iaM wRonG, but the message here is, 'if a black man commits mass murder, he will be more likely to survive an encounter w/ police?' OR 'The chances of a 'rain of bullets' decreases w/ body count?!?!' Why do I feel like if this guy was a black man he would have been dead already at least 1,500+ rounds of bullets would have fired.

How is it he can shoot n kill ppl n get brought in safely but a scared black boy that kill nobody get 60 shots 🤧 Honestly, anyone who thinks guns should be in the hands of anyone except military... I'm sick of this country. Where’s his quick 60 at? Safe apprehension- looked every bit of the part, and gets his day and time in court. His constitutional rights will be upheld and granted with a lawyer. Meanwhile in Akron…

Wait, how can this be? Why doesn’t he have 60 bullets in his body? Yur_BEST_friend Wow ,these two guys are great at narrating the whole incident, great job ..🤪 Why are they arresting him so calmly? Where was this for Jayland Walker? Dude just killed 6 people and not one bullet rang out The only question I have is did they take him to Burger King or Dunkin?

White maga guy lives through the arrest phase

Damn It's going to feel so strange driving past this to get to my office this morning 😞 Wow he was an armed actual mass shooter, being hunted by even the fbi, and homelans security and wasn't shot 60 times by the over 20 police who were on scene, like someone being pursued due to a 'non specific traffic offense' aka driving while black.

Why didn’t they shoot him 60 times - Killed ppl yet gets arrested so calmly… America the great right? Smfh Why do they never empty hundreds of rounds into these killers Guessing he was WHITE eh? White = Arrested Black = Shot many times About right. July4th At 6 people dead and 24 injured half of America is left wondering how these young white men, who kill indiscriminately, get taken into custody alive so patiently, and men and women of color get shot in their backs while running away, hands up?

Gunman at large after shooting at Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois“Unfortunately as you may know, we have an active shooter situation in Highland Park at their parade,” Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said at an Independence Day event in Evanston. Just another mass shooting in America Shooter Is White Everything has been cancelled in this country. Including women’s rights. It’s not getting bad. IT IS BAD. Our country is gone

Stop resisting Hey fella, do me a favor, get on your knees Of course he was taken in alive. He's white. You only get 60 bullets in your body if you're black, unarmed and have committed a minor traffic violation. Sadly he needs to shoot first so they can gun him down I don't know for you but he does not seem wounded by police... How come from killing several people he is a danger and now, just coz no weapon he is no danger anymore?

Awesome video except for your pet toad and grasshopper carrying a whole conversation right there on your dash. At least they were out of camera view. All the racist comments… I’m ashamed to be human being whenever I look at the news. There is nearly no story in the headlines that isn’t made into racism on all sides. This is why it continues to be an issue. If the first thing that comes to mind is race… you’re the one.

Free my boy Awake! He got taken into custody? I wonder if he 'had a bad day' like the guy in Atlanta before they bought him a combo meal like Dylan Roof? He should have been killed on the spot for what he did. Period. Supported antifa and was a liberal

Yes it's a horrid method, that is the point. Too many Citizens are still sucking in air that have taken life. Fast track his path to hell. I really don't want to hear about his mental illness or his excessive Weed use.

Let’s make this a race thing. No shots made against! What a peaceful arrest, no black no Latin, then is a peaceful arrest It's really annoying to see him being so careful to follow their instructions and not get shot. I hope that motherufcker got the shit beat out of him. If not, he will. Hell is coming for him no doubt, burning bright and loudly 🙏🙏🙏💪💪💪🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
