(The Federalist) -- On November 17, a police officer was killed during a routine traffic stop in New Kensington, Pennsylvania. His name was Brian Shaw, and he was only 25 years old.
According to reports, the suspect, 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt, fled his car after he was pulled over, and shot Shaw during the subsequent chase. Officials said Shaw did not appear to have fired his gun, while Holt fired at least six times, landing at least once in Shaw’s chest. Shaw lay in the street gasping for air before dying in a hospital that night. After several days on the lam, Holt was captured and arrested November 21 with Shaw’s handcuffs.
No NFL players kneeled on Sunday to protest the brutality that occurred to Shaw. No national cable channels dedicated expansive coverage of the incident, if some even included it at all. It required a Google search to learn about the kind-hearted residents who lined the streets of the small Pennsylvania town holding American flags while firefighters stood in uniform paying their respects during the funeral procession.
