    (CNN) -- An off-duty St. Louis, Missouri, police officer shot and killed a man Wednesday, prompting angry reaction from residents even though police say the man fired first.

    The death comes on the heels of the Michael Brown shooting two months ago in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, and just ahead of "A Weekend of Resistance" in St. Louis where activists will push for movement in the investigation into that case.

    Off-duty officer shoots, kills man
    Like Brown, the man who was killed in Wednesday's shooting was black. The officer in both incidents are white, police said.

    The difference: Brown was unarmed. In Wednesday's incident, the man had a gun, said police spokeswoman Leah Freeman said.
    ----------------------

    There is more to the article. Protesters are already out doing their thing as I type this. I wonder where the uproar and claims of "the lives of young black men don't matter" are when the several thousand black people murdered by other black people are slain each and every year....

    Officer was shot at 3 times but that will mean nothing to those idiots and they already started destroying police cars.

    I think if the groundhog sees its shadow then it means six more weeks of rioting

    This could turn out to be disastrous. Many of the neighborhood stores, especially the mom and pops, haven't had time to sufficiently restock their shelves for another round. Will the looters receive rain checks?

    Reggies will be American's undoing, no Ebola or Isis. They are stupid people who want their criminal children to get away with crime.
