Larry Wilmore on Cop Who Killed Sam Dubose: 'Basically Motherf*cker, You Just Lied'
Larry Wilmore, once again, was forced by circumstance to discuss yet another police shooting of an unarmed black man, this time Sam Dubose who was shot in the head by University of Cinncinatti police officer Ray Tensing over a minor traffic violation.
"Now, guys, I know we've reported on these cases a lot," Wilmore confessed, "and if it feels like the Nightly Show is getting repetitive, I totally agree. At this point, my writing staff just has to fill in the names". The Nightly Show host proceeded to show a mad-lib type paragraph where one enters the name, city, and gender of the latest victim of police violence.
Even the man who forcefully indicted Officer Tensing, Prosecutor Joe Deters, is a far from perfect hero, having said fairly racist comments just last month. According to Buzzfeed:
“They will hurt you. They will hurt your grandma,” he said, calling the defendants soulless and unsalvageable. “The root cause of this is there’s no discipline in the homes, they don’t go to school, you know, they live off the government, no personal accountability, and they just beat people up for no reason, and it’s disgusting.”
Wilmore would lament, "If you treat an entire community this way. Referring to them as 'they' and less than human, are you surprised [the cop] acted his way?"
