“Truly, you don’t believe every black man killed is because of a white police officer”

The mayor of Berkeley, Missouri, who is black, has defended the police officer who shot a black teen Tuesday in another case that has already caused fresh protests and riots.

Mayor Theodore Hoskins said that the fatal shooting of Antonio Martin cannot be compared to the Michael Brown case, nor the Eric Garner case because there is undeniable video proof that the teen pulled a gun on cops and pointed it at them.

“This is not a policeman in the city of Berkeley, half-cocked, going out — and as we say, black lives matter. This was not the case,” Hoskins said during a press conference. “You couldn’t even compare this with Ferguson or the Garner case in New York.”

“Our goal is to project the truth to the residents,” he added. “Because the first thing occurred last night was — and when I got there we’re all saying the same thing: ‘Here’s a white policeman killing a black young man. So when does it stop?’ And I can assure you that did not happen last night.”
