Terrence Gilbert Got What Was Necessary

ambulanceEvery police killing in America is not as a result of racism or police brutality. Sometimes some people do bad stuff, and actually get what is necessary. Terrence Gilbert is an example I believe.

Terrence Gilbert, a 25-year old man stabbed a police man twice with a knife. According Chicago Tribune, he was asked to put his weapon down and surrender. But he decided to charge at the police officers. Well, he was lucky, he got shot at the torso, so I’m not sure if he is dead. But if he’s dead, it’s his own fault, and not that of the police men that shot him. Imagine you are the police offer that was stabbed–what would you do at that situation?

This is similar to the case of Antonio Martin, and the response from the policemen on duty is right based on what I read alone.




Giovanni is obsessed with the social-economic development of his beloved Africa and inspiring people to think for themselves logically and rationally. He started Thescripton as a teenager because he felt it was one of his best ways to contribute to making society better by discussing critical social topics in an educative manner. But as his grew older he realised he change should begin from an individual level. He’s the founder of Larnedu and a few other online communities that serve thousands of people around the world. He’s open to constructive criticism and learning from others.
