No matter how much evidence is produced, it seems some people will never side with the police when they shoot someone in self-defense.
St. Louis County police have released video footage that plainly shows a young black man, who police say is 18-year-old Tyrone Harris Jr., pointing a gun while the crowd around him scatters.
CNN even spoke to a witness, who was with Harris at the time, who said the police version of events is absolutely accurate.
“Tyrone was right next to me. He was shooting back at them and all that,” 18-year-old Seth Norfleet said. “And police shot back at him.”
Several pictures were taken from Harris’ Facebook page as well, showing him posing with guns, drugs and money.
Still there are those in the Black Lives Matter movement who insist the police are lying and Harris was shot by police for no reason.

Fortunately, other people were not insane.
#TyroneHarris The video shows Harris with a gun, it shows that he fired that gun. I was there.
