*Candace Owens is showing her true colors again. In her ongoing efforts to further piss off the Black community, she defending an Atlanta police officer who shot a Black man (Rayshard Brooks) in the back, killing him.
Brooks, 27, died from 3 gunshot wounds to the back, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. His death was ruled a homicide.
Owens, who fancies herself as a pro-Trump (and anti-black), conservative activist posted to her Twitter account that she is raising funds to support the white officer who gunned down Brooks in a Wendy’s parking lot in Atlanta on Friday night.
“Black Lives Matter supports criminals. #BLEXIT supports Police Officers. We are working on building out a fund that will go live tomorrow for officers that are unjustly terminated,” Owens posted.

Meanwhile, the now-ex policeman who shot Brooks, a married father-of-two, Garrett Rolfe was fired on Saturday after it was determined by higher-ups that his use of deadly force was not justified.
His partner, Devin Bronsan, was placed on desk duty until the investigation into the officer-involved shooting is completed.
Also, if you’ve been following the case, you know that Erika Shields stepped down as Chief of Police on Saturday.
In another tweet, Owens, true to form accused Brooks of being a “criminal” and called for the resignation of Mayor Bottoms and the reinstatement of Shields even though SHE was the one who resigned.
“Any person demanding justice for #RayshardBrooks is representative of the absolute vermin of American society. There should be protests DEMANDING that the police chief be reinstated and that mayor @KeishaBottomsn RESIGN for placating CRIMINALS. I’VE HAD ENOUGH. #BackTheBlue.”
