Those who are considering him a martyr feel that it was because he was black. Therefore it makes sense for them to consider him a martyr.
Which as far as we know is untrue.

It really isnt relevant. Its a horrific murder. Doesnt matter who he was, but then again, NPR and the rest of the media think it is relevant. They are all running with gentle giant.

Could the gentle giant be the man he became and not was?

Which version is true? The Yated had the gentle giant version and I thought he only puts in right wing political views

Again, he wasn't killed because he was black, thus making him a martyr. He was killed in the acting capacity of a criminal resisting arrest.

This is nothing more than victim blaming.

From what I know, the only thing you can fault him for, is resisting arrest. \
He was killed in the acting capacity of a criminal resisting arrest.

Is there any evidence that he was resisting arrest? The surveillance video seemed to show him being very cooperative.

They disagree with you. That is what it depends on and nothing at all to do with whether or not he was a good person. al that does is perpetuate problems.

Bad comparison.
In this case there is no evidence that the officer acted any differently than he would have had the criminal been white.

Its possible. He wasnt charged with any additional violent crimes since his 2014 release from prison. He was apparently currently passing counterfeit currency and driving around high on  fentanyl and methamphetamine so not exactly a guy you want on the streets.

The problem is, that the media is aggravating the issue by trying to paint the picture black and white (both literally and metaphorically).
Innocent black George vs. evil racist cop.

What this is doing is adding some color to the picture, giving the issue some perspective.

A crime commited 5 years ago adds no perspective and all and bringing it into the discussion where it is not relevant in the slightest does more to aggravate the issue. It is black and white considering that, despite your assertion, there seems to be no indication at all that he was resisting arrest. I am not surprised that you are choosing to ignore my calling you out on that.

You totally missed my point.
 Whereas dressing provocatively can be attributed as a reason for a rape crime, as inexcusable as it may be, skin color did not play a single role in the cop criminal exchange.
It was a frustrated cop exerting his authority over his latest criminal catch, whatever color he may be.
