Death Threats and Crackas

So this woman, Cherica Jones, pictured below, makes a blatant death threat toward the wife of the officer who shot and killed Charles Smith, David Jannot.  This person then has the audacity to blame me for her posting it.  Is there ANY accountability for some?  The entitlement and racism are concerning - what is this teaching their children?  In my opinion, it teaches them that no matter what they do, no matter how badly they disrespect other human beings, especially authority, it's ok because they are black and whites are being trained to sit back and take it.

Charles Smith - New Details (Criminalizing the victim?)

UPDATE:  Police Report
A 29 year old man, Charles Smith, was shot and killed by cops September 18, 2014, after he was handcuffed, arrested and placed into a police cruiser.  :
Police had arrested Smith on outstanding warrants and put him in a patrol car with his hands cuffed behind his back, GBI spokeswoman Sherry Lang said in a written statement reported by The Associated Press. Smith was able to move his hands to the front of his body and kick out a window of the patrol car, Lang said.
Charles then brandished a gun he, apparently, had hidden on his person that was not detected by police when cuffing him.  This is not as uncommon as one would think.  Police shot Smith several times - he died at the scene. Update 9/20 from Legal Insurrection:
2005-"Particularly interesting was one arrest for “interference with government property,”  in which the arrest report indicates that after being placed in a police cruiser Smith “knocking out the back windows with his head”–eerily similar to his behavior following his Thursday morning warrant arrest by Officer Jannot."
