A black man by the name of Andrew Coffee IV of Gifford, Florida was found not guilty on a case that has caused many to draw parallels to Kyle Rittenhouse. The now 27-year-old man found himself in the middle of a gun battle with police back in 2017. Gifford police raided a known drug house while Coffee and his then 21-year-old girlfriend were allegedly sleeping. Coffee testified to being awakened by a flashbang then seeing what appeared to be the barrel of a rifle pointing through his open bedroom window. He grabbed his weapon and fired out of the window in what he claims was self-defense. Police returned fire which resulted in the death of Coffee’s girlfriend, Alteria Woods.
Andrew Coffee was charged with murder, attempted murder, and a gun charge as a result of the tragic incident at his home. He recently beat the murder and attempted murder charges but was convicted of a gun charge. Coffee probably would have beaten the gun charge if not for the fact that he is a 4x convicted felon. Felons cannot own guns in the State of Florida or in most other places in the United States unless their rights are restored or they receive a pardon. Local police released a statement expressing their disappointment with the outcome. They said if Andrew Coffee would have simply complied with law enforcement, then his girlfriend would not have been killed by SWAT that night. SWAT was initially investigated for wrongdoing and cleared.
The narrative spun by leftist-controlled mainstream media and some Democratic politicians is that Kyle Rittenhouse would be treated differently if he was black. After all, he did “cross state lines” with a gun and “mow down” so-called “innocent protesters”. At least, that’s what they want the general public to think. The reality is much different. Black and “people of color” are usually treated the same as their white counterparts or better. As a matter of fact, if Kyle Rittenhouse was black then he probably would not have been charged at all. The only reason why the Rittenhouse case even matters is because of the “dangerous white male” narrative that was too juicy for the media to pass up.
Andrew Coffee probably should be in prison for attempted murder and murder. But the jury was not convinced there was enough evidence to prove it. This type of outcome is not uncommon. It is normal. The media have completely ignored it because it disproves their narrative about black men being poor victims who never get a fair shake or a break. If the story would have gone the other way, then the media would pick it up in a New York minute to prove their faulty narrative. Even still, the narrative would still be false. Every single day, violent offenders are either let off the hook or given slaps on the wrist. Especially in urban, inner-city areas. The common man in Pleasantville, USA probably does not know that. This ignorance is by design.
