I do not condone violence. However, history has shown that an exasperated people will eventually and inevitably respond with violence when pleas and protests continue to fall on the deaf ears of those in power. "Civil self-defense" does not justify the slaying of those officers anymore than "black male threat" justifies the use of deadly force that has been and is a common occurence in this nation. Although it certainly does explain it.
