An Ignored Self-Defense Case

leave a comment »

Out-shouted by the raucous and racist angst after the Kyle Rittenhouse not-guilty verdict last week was another acquittal logged at the same time finding a Florida man not guilty who claimed he was defending himself and his girlfriend when he fired shots at sheriff’s deputies during an early morning raid on his home.

It takes more reading and catching up with the story to learn he is a Black man from a photo in the piece and more to learn he is a convicted felon.

Neither of which makes his exoneration invalid.

But it hampers the ongoing righteous rants about white-supremacist Rittenhouse getting white-privilege justice.

The Florida case is just as tragic as the Kenosha case. Anyone interested can Google “Andrew A.J. Coffee.”
