Lt. Heather Slyve of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office drew her weapon. White continued to swing the machete as she approached, and she fired three rounds, striking him in the face, chest and leg, according to Normand.

Now I want to be clear, the suspect is Richard White. He is a 62 year old Black man with mental issues. He was known on the radar by the law for being a belligerent suspect.
The internet agitators are probably determining which political party the suspect belongs to.
The blame game spreads to "If the TSA had guns..." or "Because of the TSA bothering Americans..."
And of course, there's FRED 101.
This guy appears whenever we post a story about Black criminal acts. The racial extremists are often motivated by criminal acts committed by Black and Latino men.
