I wouldn't call you a closet liberal but yes it was a volatile situation and he would've been an idiot not to have a gun to protect himself and others. I'm sure this is some disproportionate sentencing but also know numbers don't ever tell the whole story. Too often hose claiming police are racist etc, not saying you are, only loon at numbers and not circumstances and other info. Cold hard numbers won't tell the whole story but make for a great narrative. Years ago I was told something I think is true: there is more racism the most white people know but quite a bit less than many black people believe. It would be very interesting to see the party affiliation and ideology of the racists. I think it would surprise many blacks.

I don’t know about “closet” liberalism. I used to be a generic liberal because my understanding of the teachings of Christ are more liberal than conservative. But, all that changed when evangelicals and born agains embraced the orange monster and excused his amoral behavior. Since then, I identify as a complete radical — somewhere to the left of Patty Hearst during her “Tonya” phase.
