Antonio Martin: So what if he was armed?

And what if he was armed? Given the history of police violence towards young black men, should it not be considered an act of self-defense for him to pull a weapon when an *armed* cop walks up to him? I’m sick of people centering this on whether he pulled a weapon or not. The fact is, the *armed* cop approached him first. That is, the cop is the one that initiated the armed confrontation.
