White sheriffs racially profile and shoot unarmed black man in his own yard

roy

A 60-year-old unarmed black man was racially profiled and shot by two sheriffs in his own yard. According to a report by Pensacola News Journal, Roy Middleton, 60, was looking for a cigarette in his mother’s car at 2:42 a.m. when a neighbor saw him in the car and called 911 to report a burglary on July 27.

Deputies Jeremiah Meeks and Matthew White arrived at Middleton’s home and drew guns on him. Middleton said he raised his hands, but the sheriffs began opening fire on him without checking to see if he was the owner of the home. Middleton was shot in the leg.

Although Middleton’s wounds are not life threatening, both of the deputies shot 15 rounds at the victim with a .40-caliber glock. In addition, his mother’s car was riddled with bullet holes and several bullets hit the back door to the home.
Once shot, the sheriffs would not allow his mother to step outside of her own home to see her wounded son.

After two days of silence, the deputies finally spoke out about the incident and claimed that Middleton lunged at them. However, a teenage witness said that she saw the incident and Middleton did not pose a threat to law enforcement.

Both of the officers have been placed on paid leave as an investigation occurs. Once again, it is highly likely that race played a factor in the profiling and shooting of an unarmed black man.

    Nice race baiting article. Sheriffs, law enforcement really don’t care about color. They get to go on paid administrative leave whether its a white, black or green alien.

    Is “Rolling Out” funded by Uncle Fraud in anyway? Now that Obomit has come out as a race baiter and its federal government policy to start race wars/tension, I don’t trust any media that comes out with stories like this. Long term agenda is to get the young, immature blacks excited, then roll out the tanks and start exercising martial law on a daily basis. Its an excuse for more police and more control. The mature responsible, blacks won’t play this game.

      Let me get this right. You’re saying an article criticizing the actions of police officers in shooting an unarmed, unthreatening black man in front of his own home is part of a plot to get more police with tanks to run the streets? Which lunatic asylum are on you on a day pass from?

        This worthless article is race baiting, the promotion of an agenda because it just ain’t blacks that are being killed by the police you worhtless @sshole with your head buried in the sand. I KNOW YOU ARE AWARE OF WHATS GOING ON, SO ITS INTENTIONAL IGNORANCE. Giving you the facts will not change that piece of sh*t between your ears.

          They really should terminate internet access to violent criminals in solitary confinement. Animal!

        If you were susceptible to facts or logic whatsoever and your response indicated you weren’t, I might supply them to you. Pointing out the clues to the terminally ignorant has never done anything to change their minds. I find insulting a much better outlet for my keystrokes. However, you certainly have me under duress because I can’t find anything insulting enough to satisfy my needs. I just hope you die a slow agonizing death. Cancer would be good.

            You are going to ask your imaginary friends to pray for me? What about the tooth fairy, do you have her on retainer as well? I’ve got a cavity that needs filling.

          Internet access to animals in solitary confinement cant be legal!

          • Guy Daley on August 2, 2013 at 10:04 am

            What about the animals on the loose in Chicago, black on black crime which never makes the media? I do understand that you think you are being clever, but I suppose you adore and praise Sharpton and Jackson for being heroes. If anybody belongs in jail it would be your heroes. I don’t think you are going to get reparations anytime soon.

            But when the mob kills their own and others they make movies out of their action and glorify criminal behavior. Go figure!!

    What a very strange spread of bullets, they must either be the worst shots in the history of law enforcement, or gone on some sort of Glock rampage.
    It seems the gentleman who got shot was very unlucky to be hit at all, as I don’t think the Sheriff’s could hit a barn door with a blunderbuss.
    Some people shouldn’t be allowed to carry guns, even if they do wear a tin badge.

    Sue their slimey racist asses off !! Should be worth a couple of million at least. Who cares if it bankrupts the municipality that hires and covers the thugs.

    Let’s get the record straight before I get started. White people kill more of their kind including children at each episode and I know you don’t want details. White America believe it’s okay to kill blacks and our children so trying to convince them that the incident is wrong is like beating a dead horse. It’s the American way established by the people who wrote the constitution who made us 3/5 of a person. Now back on topic. This kind of stuff has been going on for centuries. The media has finally got the green light to report it. My guess is that some how White America will find a way to flip the guilt on the victim and the policemen involved will get a vacation for a while and back out on the streets to continue doing what they are supported by an American agenda to do (Wipe us out be any means necessary). For example the kid killer by the name of George Zimmerman. He lives a better life now supported by our tax dollars.This type of mentality will only die when the Jim Crows of this country are dead, or the to population change which is well on its way takes effect in the next ten years. Their future generations will reap what they have sewn.
