Around here, especially at biker bars, the security staff wear tops emblazened with SECURITY.
I don't know about Chicago, but nobody can carry in a bar around here, well, legally anyway. Sadly, if that security dude was illegally carrying in a bar, he's going to be painted as being in the wrong. Personally, I would never take the chance of leaving the house with my LCP as it might jump out of my pocket and shoot somebody. Oh, those nasty, bad, bad guns....

According to the article, the bystanders were shouting "security" and the police still shot him. It sounds to me that there was more happening than was reported. Of course, all journalists tell only the facts and tell the whole truth. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Yeah, they'll never admit the REAL problem is a culture where 'guns' are the evil thing, and where political-correctness has deepened the rift between races, because the white-guys see that blacks are free to be punks and thieves without much consequence, because anything done to criminals with that complexion is labeled 'raaaacist', so then instead of just a few truly-racist white-guys out there being KKK-like, you get a much larger portion of society who is 'suspicious' of young black males regardless, even though they weren't brought up as 'racists'. Then when a black criminal gets shot, the blacks see it as 'raaaacist', even when it is not, but their 'protests' are so violent and irrational that it makes even MORE rational whites discount everything they say. So pretty soon nobody trusts anybody who has different skin color.

Most folks I know who are white, don't care AT ALL about skin color, other than that they do see it as unfair that blacks get so many freebies and other stuff, and most folks I know who are black, don't care much about skin color, other than they might feel whites are treated better by cops (perhaps we behave better when 'confronted' by a cop, at least according to the MANY cops I've spoken with). However, I'm pretty much only exposed to the 'working class' (who are almost all libertarian/conservative Republicans), so I don't get the ultra-wealthy or the 'welfare' perspective, and both of those crowds tend to be WAY more racist, and ALSO way more likely to be Democrats.

Why does the article point out with the first word "Black" when there is a picture alongside it showing the obviously "Black" man? If he had been white, would the reporter have pointed out he was a white man??
Next, was he legally armed or not? It`s a suburb of chicago but isn't chicago and may have it`s own laws on guns.
Next, anyone can buy a jacket with "Security" wrote on it.
Next, what was the radio transmission that sent the cops there?
At this point I dont think there is enough good info to stir up the mass`s just yet. If there is anything to upset anyone just yet until more facts come out, it's that reporter that pointed out the security guard was black with his picture alongside it. To me that's obviously trying to incite the public all by it's self.

The person writing the article is pointing out opinionated "facts" rather than just sticking with the facts. As I mentioned above, there seems to be a lot more going on than what is being reported. Failing to tell the whole truth should be used against reporters. They would cry about being labelled fake if that were to happen, but it should still happen.

Never mind who Adam Harris is, if this is really what the "reporter" wrote about the witness saying, it sure puts his thought process in a poor light.

"Everybody was screaming out, 'Security!' He was a security guard," Adam Harris, a witness, told reporters. "And they still did their job, and saw a black man with a gun."
The police shot and killed Roberson.

Is that really their job?
It's a strange and sad world we live in now.

Gosh, Bill... I'd think that it's fairly obvious by now that the MSM is on a holy quest to prove that law-enforcers by their very nature are raaaciiists.

I don't think I'd lose a bet by guessing that is their motivation for mentioning the simple fact.
