The Cop says, “Dispatch, I’ve arrived at that disturbance.”
“Will you have LeBron call my cellphone right away, please? Thank you.”
“Sorry, guys, you’re on your own. Good luck.”
From The Blaze:
While awaiting the call from “LeBron,” Silvester can be heard telling an off-screen person to “put down that knife.”
“Stop stabbing him,” Silvester commands.
“LeBron” returns Silvester’s call, and the officer says, “LeBron, hey, yeah, it’s me again. Listen, I’m out here at this disturbance call, and there’s a guy trying to stab another guy with a knife. What do you think I should do?”
After a pause in the fake conversation, Silvester asks, “Why does that matter?”
“OK, well, they’re both black,” he continues. “One guy is trying to stab another guy with a knife. Deadly force is completely justified.”
After another pause, he adds, “So, you don’t care if a black person kills another black person — but you do care if a white cop kills a black person, even if he’s doing it to save the life of another black person? I mean, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but then again, you’re really good at basketball, so I guess I’ll take your word for it.”
He concludes the conversation, “Michael Jordan’s the GOAT [greatest of all time]. I gotta go.”
