Black Man Holds Naked White Man at Gun Point ~ VIDEO

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- In the afternoon of July 24-25, 2018, a naked white man was making a nuisance of himself at Trailblazer Park in Newton County, Georgia.  A father with children at the park, on a church outing, used his legal firearm to detain the man for police.

From charlotteobserver.com:

A Covington, Ga., dad only wanted to take his family on a trip to feed the homeless. Instead, Tae Lovelace says they were harassed by a naked man and he was forced to pull out a handgun in defense.

“Had I not been licensed to carry at that moment who knows what this guy could have done to my family or any of the other families that were here,” Lovelace told WSB.

The police came and pointed their guns at the father, ordering him to put down his gun. The father did so, the naked man ran, but the police arrested him and took him into custody. From wsbtv.com:

That's when he started recording with his phone for officers who arrived within minutes and ordered Lovelace to put down his gun.

“While the cop has his firearm toward me, the guy gets up and runs away again and jumps in the river,” Lovelace said.

The father with the gun was black and the naked man was white. The police did not shoot the black father. They did not shoot anyone.

Those who stoke racial hatred claim no black man dare use a gun for self-defense, because he will be shot by racist police.  It did not happen here.  It almost never happens. Heather Mac Donald rebutted the claim that police shootings are biased against black people. From city-journal.org:

Four studies came out in 2016 alone rebutting the charge that police shootings are racially biased. If there is a bias in police shootings, it works in favor of blacks and against whites. That truth has not stopped the ongoing demonization of the police—including, now, by many of the country’s ignorant professional athletes. The toll will be felt, as always, in the inner city, by the thousands of law-abiding people there who desperately want more police protection.

Mr. Lovelace followed police directions. He put down the gun when ordered to do so. His grandmother called the police, so they probably knew something of the situation before they arrived. Perhaps a family member directed the police to where Mr. Lovelace was holding the naked man at gunpoint.

The police did not shoot Mr. Lovelace. Mr. Lovelace was not arrested. He was not beat up. He stopped the inappropriate behavior by the naked man, Josten Meeler, who was on some kind of mind altering substance.

Police make serious mistakes. In Colorado, a white man shot a black intruder, who was attacking his grandson. The white grandfather was shot and killed by police.  The police claim the grandfather, Richard Black, was told to “drop the weapon”, and that Black did not do so.

Richard Black had just fired a handgun, twice, in the confined space of a bathroom. It is likely his hearing was severely impaired at that point. He is said to have stepped outside the house with his pistol and a flashlight.

In a population of 330 million, with over half a million police, deadly mistakes are made. Fortunately, they are relatively rare. As police mistakes are publicized, they will become less common.

Black Man Holds Naked White Man at Gun Point.

Every shooting of black men that has video is paraded as evidence of police racism. But everyday interactions of law abiding black people with police, and the growing number of black men and women who legally carry guns for protection of themselves and others, is seldom mentioned.

Interaction with officers who are answering a “man with a gun” call is a dangerous situation. A mistake may be fatal.

Do not take for granted the officers know that you are the “good guy with a gun”. They may not.

Black, White, Red, Brown, Green or Purple, use what resources you have to inform the officers you are not the threat. Have the person contacting the officers describe you, so they can more easily identify you. Do not point your gun at officers. Follow their commands.

    I take exception with the Aurora, Co killing of the white grandfather. The police were clearly in the wrong to murder this man. The wife of the murdered man gave a detailed description of her husband right down to the clothing he had on. The police chose to ignore this information and instead killed the man. There is no excuse the police in Aurora can give to justify their actions. Ordering someone to put down a weapon who just fired that weapon in the confines of a bathroom without hearing protection is going to cause a temporary loss of hearing.… Read more »

    Happened to me….I called 911 for a prowler at 3 AM, and when the cops arrived, I opened my front door in my skivies and my magnum in hand at my side….BAD ! BAD ! He jumped back behind his car and told me to PUT THE GUN DOWN ! I wasn’t thinking about what HE was seeing. News Flash! When a cop sees YOU with a weapon, he/she doesn’t know if YOU are the PERP or not. ALWAYS, ALWAYS put the gun on the ground at your feet – or holster it just BEFORE the cops arrive. And since… Read more »

    I think everyone is getting ahead of themselves. It seems to me that this was never about race, but about the gun. The police will go after ANYONE who has a gun when they’re unaware of the situation. From what I gather, upon arriving, the police didn’t even see the naked man until the gun owner pointed out that he was in the river.
    This is just a classic case of police taking care of a visual threat until they get the whole story.

    The Presstitutes of the LameStream EneMedia are directed by Comrade George Soros to DIVIDE AND CONQUER, injecting racism as often as possible.

    If you call 911 with an emergency call try to stay on the phone and give them as much information as possible to relay to the police officers that respond to the call. I have a scanner at home and listen to some of the information that is given to officers responding to calls. Often the callers just don’t give enough information to 911. The officers have to answer the call with no understanding of the situation.

    Exactly!! This article is spot on as far as any racial bias negatively impacting whites. Why do you think the media always interjects race into police shootings? it shouldn’t make any difference. It should be officer shoots suspect who was armed, unarmed, whatever. Some people are so stupid though they can’t see this and are let around by the nose buy biased media Outlets. If you believe all the crap about police shooting thousands of black people for no reason you are a media Lackey, and an idiot.

    Why is it always Black & White, White &Black?
    This was a father protecting his own..PERIOD!
    The sooner the press stops making everything
    about color (all about the $$$). Then maybe we
    start to come together and converse about the
    issue of race. Disappointing they had to marketed
    as Black & White issue.
    The protector is obviously a good person.
    Thank you for having the fortitude to act as you did.
    Thank you forefathers for the 2nd amendment.

    It ALWAYS becomes a black and white issue when the perpetrator is white – it is the only way that the left can push their agenda. If EVERY report included the race of all involved, then it would be obvious that whites are NOT the problem!
