If we start making lists of "young men of color shot by the police," this episode will be included.
Which shows you why making such lists is absurd -- it feeds on, and spreads, ignorance, in the hope of goosing the false narrative that the cops are a fascist army.
What the episode is actually about is the capture within the last couple of hours of the fellow, Ahmad Khan Rahami, who is suspected in the New York City bombing and attempted bombing last weekend. Mr. Rahami had a shootout with the police, hitting one in his bulletproof vest (is that "military" equipment?) and the other in the hand.
Fortunately, Rahami was taken alive and can be questioned. CNN starts its report:
Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man suspected in bombings in New York and New Jersey, is now in custody after a shootout with police, sources said.The shootout happened Monday in Linden, New Jersey. Rahami was shot and was taken to an ambulance in a stretcher with his right shoulder bloodied and bandaged.Two officers were hit in the shootout with Rahami, the mayor of the nearby city of Elizabeth said. One officer's vest was struck, and the other was shot in the hand.
