Who cares if he had marijuana? He was murdered by a cop, who had no business being there, in his apartment!
Of course, no words of sympathy for the victim have been tweeted by our racist president.

This is an attack on an innocent man who was killed by a cop for simply existing in his own home. PERIOD.
Botham Jean should still be alive and Black. Lives. Matter. https://t.co/F5MFtHABzX

I have rarely seen more universal condemnation of a news story than that local Fox one about the guy who was murdered having marijuana in his apt.

“If innocent unarmed black men like Jean are shot, it’s because they lack firearms; if innocent black men who are armed like Castile or Sterling are shot, it’s because they had a gun. Heads, you’re dead; tails, you’re also dead.” https://t.co/v3eMoQoXlP

It’s really really really really hard to read this without thinking the motivations here are pure, unfiltered racism. https://t.co/q6TPLEmZXI

I am speechless.
An off duty cop shoots and kills a wonderful (Black) man in his own home and on the day of that man's funeral, police & local media release that they searched his home, found weed, then get cornered into admitting they never even searched the perpetrators home. https://t.co/naze9wFM1c
