Only a few hours after the event and activists were already inducting his name into the list of victims whose names activists like to leverage as they whip crowds up into a violent frenzy.

We know this because the burning and looting have already begun in his name.

The implausible narrative they paired it with was that he was ‘shot because he had air fresheners hanging from his mirror’. They’re sweetening the pot with an emphasis on the fact that he is a father leaving behind a child.

(This particular logical fallacy has a name. In English, it is called the appeal to pity.)

Do you really think any cop would be looking for a chance to do something that stupid in a city where 4 other cops lives’ have already been forever ruined for their involvement in an internationally-infamous case that is CURRENTLY BEFORE THE COURT IN THIS SAME CITY?

If the answer to that question is ‘yes’, well, I have a lovely bridge to sell you at a very reasonable price.

Obviously, there was more to that story than a guy being shot over an air freshener. The question that needs answering is, what do we not yet know?

That’s why we went out of our way to draw attention to the unanswered questions when we first covered this story, here: Black Man Shot By Police In Minneapolis At The Worst Possible Time … All Hell Breaks Loose

We’ve been at this long enough, and have covered enough of these sorts of stories, to know that new information comes to light after the fact that will utterly change the way the known information is seen and understood.

We are still a long way from having all the answers, but this detail, had the public waited just one day before jumping to conclusions, breaking windows and trashing businesses, they would have known a few important details about the man whose defense they have been reflexively jumping.

This new information still doesn’t yet give us the whole picture — this is why we have investigations and trials — but it would have given at least some of the angry activists a plausible reason to sit this one out and let the investigators and perhaps the courts sift through the relevant facts.

Any poseur can flash gang signs, a pistol, or dubious money on social media. That doesn’t make you ‘badass’.

If you want a real benchmark to measure ‘badass’ against today, I’d stack these ten tough chicas up against pretty well anybody.

What’s really great about reading their stories is the fire God can put in your belly about the very real possibility of how God Himself can roll up his sleeves (so to speak) and get to work in your life and situation.

Biblical Badasses: The Women

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
