Except, of course, we hear no outcry ’cause Landon Eastep was white…..
Dude was tens of feet away from the cops. Armed with a boxcutter. While 20+ feet is not a safe distance, it isn’t a distance where nine cops need to unload into him either. (Just Like LaQuan McDonald in Chicago) Those cops were tried for Murder.
Now, having said that, neither Landon nor LaQuan were choirboys, and both were somewhat dangerous. Both of them had mental issues. But both were shot at a range of more than 20 feet multiple times, execution style.
The difference is one was white, and one was black. One was used to stir up black votes and black anger…and the other, being white, was not useful for anything. So his murder remains unnoticed and unheeded by the press.
