Portland police late Thursday night issued a statement clarifying that the person they allegedly shot in the back while he was running from them "armed" with a screwdriver outside a motel in Northeast Portland was white and not a person of color as antifa had claimed.
Their statement also seemed aimed at quelling protests:
Nothing to worry about folks, we just killed a white guy!
It appears Portland police also leaked to the Oregonian that the officer who did the shooting was black.
Protesting may actually have been valid in this case as the Oregonian reported that a witness told them the white victim was shot in the back by the black police officer while running from police:
A Portland police officer shot a man after he came at the officer with a screwdriver outside a Motel 6 near the Oregon Convention Center on Thursday evening, sources say.Did Portland police just try to quell criticism of a potentially unjust shooting just by playing the race card?
There was a similar case in Minnesota back in April where the police seem to have tipped the media and protesters off that a carjacker they shot and killed was a white man.
Is this the new normal?
