1. Roles reversed, the black man would have been shot dead immediately...

 

OF COURSE they gently take the white assailant alive and without roughing him up.

Glad the victim survived unharmed and his attacker will face justice.

2. also good that there were white people there who were calling out the white thug

i assume they probably told the cop what was going on which helped .

as we have seen the problem is not always the cops but the people who keep calling cops over black people doing things that people do .

4. You want the guy roughed up?

He dropped the knife and put his hands in the air. He deserves a beating, but it doesn’t mean he should get one.

9. I think it's more a comment...

 

... about what happens to unarmed black men.

15. The point is a black man would have been shot first and not given a chance to surrender

glad to help you understand the issue being discussed.

18. The point is you don't know that

Your bias leads you to say it

3. News in Charlottesville sez....

the assailant was taken in for mental evaluation before being served with a warrant:

See: https://www.dailyprogress.com/news/local/city/man-arrested-for-assault-threat-on-downtown-mall/article_3b239f62-0bc2-11e9-af48-7bf6d9499f04.html

(snip)
The man, whose name was not released, was taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center and then transferred to Western State Hospital in Staunton for a mental evaluation.

Newberry said CPD has a warrant for attempted malicious wounding that will be served following the evaluation. The altercation was recorded and shared on Twitter by a witness.

5. So, the trend among Nazis and KKKers now is to pull knives on black people?

Jeezus. This is the second such post in today's GDT. WTF? I fear it's only going to get worse as the walls close in on their Dear Leader.

Homeless people hangout on the downtown mall, some have issues with mental health.

Edit: I don't know this man's circumstances.

7. If there'd only been a good guy with a knife. It seems to me the cops took a long while showing up.

The victim sure seemed a lot more together than I would have been.

19. Charlottesville is very, very progressive

This man is a well-known basically vagrant with mental health issues, and this gave the cops the chance to arrest him and Baker Act him.

A good friend in Cville's friend was literally there when it happened.
