White cop shoots and kills white guy who grabbed his gun, but that’s not the headline you’ll see…

Social media is going crazy over a story where a family got into an altercation with police outside a Walmart and one was shot and killed. But rather than point to the fact that this is an instance where cops killed a white man for reaching for a cop’s gun, they’re focusing on something else:

Yes it was a family and music band who posted Christian messages on their Facebook page. So THAT detail is important, but it’s NEVER important when a Muslim beheads someone. Those are the RULES of journalistic integrity, people!



More from Idaho Statesman:

The Christian family band that brawled with police in an Arizona Walmart parking lot were not slowed down by repeated hits from Tasers, pepper spray and batons, newly released dashcam video shows.

The fighting stopped only after a 21-year-old member of the Gaver family was fatally shot, his brother was struck in the stomach and a cop took a bullet to the leg.

The melee broke out March 21 after eight officers responded to a report that a member of the Gaver family — which had been living out of their car in the parking lot — had pushed a Walmart employee in a store bathroom, police said.

When police tried to separate the family band for questioning, they attacked, Cottonwood Police Chief Jody Fanning said Friday.

Punches flew as officers and Gavers got knocked to the ground. One officer was put into a headlock.

There’s pretty harrowing 8-minute video of the attack:

Police are saying one member struggled to get the cop’s gun:

At one point, Enoch Gaver got on top of Sgt. Jeremy Daniels on the ground and struggled for his gun, Fanning said.

Officer Rick Hicks tried to get Enoch Gaver off of Daniels by kicking him in the head, but he continued to reach for the gun, Fanning said.

The gun went off, shooting Daniels in the leg.

Hicks shot David Gaver, 28, in the stomach before fatally shooting Enoch Gaver, Fanning said.

So a white cop shot and killed a white guy who fought with him and reached for his gun. But you won’t hear that angle because that contradicts the “Black Lives Matter” narrative, and you won’t see white people chanting “White Lives Matter!” while interrupting blacks eating brunch. You’ll just hear the word “Christian” blaring out in headlines.
