There are already several other incidents that prove American cops are racist. The topic of police ableism is seldom brought up.

Yes, but if it turns out to be the racism that we're all used to, don't try to make it something it isn't.

Still, I don't think it's a bad idea to point out that if the autistic man were the intended target, that wouldn't be that unusual.

RE: Okay this HAS TO STOP!
Every time a black man is murdered for being black, there is always some way people try to "prove" that race had nothing to do with it. It doesn't help us as autistics to join in on that. Autistics are really more at risk from caregivers than from police. With the black community it's the opposite. We should be against all forms of oppression but it doesn't do to confuse one with the other. This was anti-black racism. The autistic person, by the way, was actually Latino, not white, so even if he was the target race is still an issue.

The cop has been charged.

Of course the charges won't stick and everyone involved knows that already.

The cops are claiming that he simply missed. At that range a semi-competent marksman should have easily been able to hit something the size of a credit card. Whether or not the black man was the intended target, something is seriously wrong with this story.
