Celebrities & The Public Raise $106K for James Shaw; Call Out Trump for Ignoring His Heroism

April 24, 2018 by The ReadyWriter


Snoop Dogg and other celebrities are calling out President Donald Trump for ignoring Waffle House hero James Shaw, Jr. who disarmed Travis Reinking after he shot and killed 4 people and wounded 4 more with an AR-15.

Reinking, 29, who wore only a green coat during the attack on April 22, was captured alive on Monday while walking in the woods in Antioch, Tennessee.

Shaw, a 29-year-old father of one, charged Reinking and snatched away his AR-15. His actions saved others from being killed in the restaurant.

Rapper Snoop Dogg and other celebs wonder why Trump hasn’t recognized Shaw for his bravery.

“If a Muslim shot up a restaurant full of white people, the ‘president’ would be tweeting up a storm, driving his dumb racist base into a frenzy.” Snoop Dogg’ posted on Instagram.com.

Snoop added: “The NRA would use it as fodder for propaganda to scare dumb racists into buying more guns.”

GoFundMe page created by Shaw, Jr. for the shooting victims has raised over $106,000 of its stated $15,000 goal.

    I live in the United States, where an unarmed black man can disarm an active shooter and de-escalate a very hostile situation but the police can’t do the same when dealing with unarmed black men and women. Smdh

    This is just beautiful. Folks always say that Black People don’t stick together but look at this show of love and support.

He’s the People’s Champion!!!
