One of the things the Black Lives Matter crowd — in conjunction with the mainstream media — like to push is this idea that any and every instance of force used by police on a black person is due to racism, with the individual in question always being an innocent victim of oppression.

That’s the narrative they tried to duct tape together about Michael Brown and Officer Darren Wilson, and it’s what they’d like you to believe about Tyrone Harris Jr. who was shot by cops after he opened fire during a protest in Ferguson.

Well, there are five pictures on Harris’ Facebook account that say something entirely different.

From TheBlaze:

The 18-year-old man shot by police after he allegedly opened fire during a protest in Ferguson, Missouri, Sunday night was out on bond in a separate felony case, KTVI-TV reported.

A St. Louis Police Department spokesman confirmed to TheBlaze that Tyrone Harris Jr. was arrested in November on charges of stealing a car, theft of a firearm and resisting arrest by fleeing.

According to KTVI, police had pursued Harris speeding down a one-way street. After officers threw down stop sticks and arrested him, he reportedly admitted to stealing the car as well as a 9 mm gun.

KTVI also reported that a Facebook page said to belong to Harris features dozens of photos of Harris posing with guns and statuses about illegal and gang-related activities, often using the hashtag #pistolgang.

The following are images KTVI and the website the Daily Haze attributed to Harris’ Facebook page, where he went by “Ty Glocks.” The St. Louis police spokesman could not confirm the authenticity of the page, as it is unrelated to his pending case.

According to KTVI, Harris’ last Facebook post said, “I f*** around go on West Florissant tonight.”

Police say Harris opened fire on plainclothes officers Sunday night after spotting their unmarked van with police lights.

Officers returned fire, striking Harris, who was taken to the hospital and remains in critical, unstable condition.

Harris will be charged with 10 felonies, including first-degree assault on law enforcement officers, according to KTVI.

Harris was also a close friend of Michael Brown, according to his father.

As you can see, this guy was hardly an innocent victim of police brutality or excessive use of force. He was a thug who could’ve seriously hurt or killed someone by shooting in a crowd of people.

And, come on, newsflash folks. Shooting at police officers might not be that great of an idea.

Just a little something to think about when planning your next night of lawless debauchery and looting, all in the name of social justice.
