A white Dallas, Texas police officer fatally shot her black neighbor inside his home earlier this month. The officer claimed that she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own, a story most find very suspicious especially since the cop’s version of events has not been consistent and her apartment is on a different floor. Officer Amber Guyger was charged with manslaughter after she shot her 26-year-old black neighbor, but she has not been fired. Black people aren’t even safe in their own homes anymore.
Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) decided to post a video of Congressman Beto O’Rourke, his opponent, but all it really did was promote Beto. We’re not sure why Cruz did this unless he is OK with an officer coming inside of an unarmed black man’s home and gunning him down without cause. Again, the officer was charged with manslaughter so we’re not sure what part of this story Cruz doesn’t get.

Twitter users thanked Cruz for promoting Beto O’Rourke.
Yeah thanks Ted for promoting Beto. I feel like you actually agree he’s better than you and you are a real Patriot to let the best man win. Thanks.

Hey, Ted, maybe you can get some kind of social media job with Beto’s campaign. This clip is perfect. It reveals Beto’s strengths and decency. @BetoORourke

Ted, I want to make sure I understand your point – there seems to be only one possible reading of it. According to you, it is good for the police to enter the apartments of unarmed black men and shoot them. Do I have you right here?

O’Rourke, who has refused to accept PAC donations, has outraised Cruz by millions. Still, the race is neck and neck so it could go either way.
