The Dallas policewoman about to go on trial for murdering a man after she entered the wrong apartment is taking even more criticism from the left for having shared social media posts critical of former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.
Dallas officer Amber Guyger was arrested and charged with murder after she entered the apartment of 26-year-old Botham Jean who she then shot to death. Guyger claimed she thought she was entering her own apartment and she thought Botham was an intruder. Botham was unarmed at the time. The shooting has become a major controversy and has attracted the attention of social justice activists.
But now, social justice warrior and one-time New York Daily News “social justice writer,” Shaun King seems to be claiming that posting an Internet meme about Colin Kaepernick somehow “explains” the shooting and makes one a murderer, according to 12Up.com.
Searching through Guyger’s Twitter account, King found that the officer once shared an image of NFL anthem protester Colin Kaepernick with the phrase “The NFL Died of Colin Cancer.”
On his tweet, King exclaimed, “Ah. Now we are starting to understand some things much more clearly.”
Ah. Now we are starting to understand some things much more clearly.

King’s assumption is interesting since he is a staunch supporter of Black Lives Matter which has repeatedly called for violence against police officers.
It was Black Lives Matter organizer Rashad Turner, for instance, who led supporters taunting police in Minnesota with a chant of “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”
In another case, a Black Lives Matter advocate in Detroit posted dozens of threats to police on his social media accounts. Nheru Littleton, 41, was later tried and convicted over the threats.
Black Lives Matter has become so dangerous that the FBI was forced to categorize “black extremists” as a developing threat to the country.
Shaun King also criticized the jailed Dallas officer for several other tweets, one featuring the slogan, “Stay low, go fast, kill first,” and another saying, “I wear all black to remind you not to mess with me, because I’m already dressed for your funeral.”
