We’ve seen plenty of posts (here are a couple in particular) suggesting that if the suspect in the Planned Parenthood shootings in Colorado Springs were any race but white, there would have been no chance he would have been taken alive.

The Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery notes that the Colorado FOP posted a message to its Facebook site early today providing a copy-and-paste reply to anyone making that argument on social media. The union didn’t mince words, addressing the post to the “race baiting morons” and “delusional fools” who base their world view on the false narrative that is “Hands up, don’t shoot.”
