Media Toying with Police Killings

All Lives Matter.

When following media outrages, we're led like a beast with a ring through its nose...

I read yesterday of unarmed black man Terence Crutcher, zapped with a stun gun by Tulsa police then fatally shot with his hands up.

Today we're told in bold headlines Keith Scott was warned to drop a gun he carried. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney says: "It's time to change the narrative, because I can tell you from the facts that the story's a little bit different as to how it's been portrayed so far, especially through social media."

Headlines trumpet about Scott, or Tulsa, but seeing these stories together, you perhaps notice they ain't really related. Except it seems one killing of a citizen by police is deliberately used to distort another in many people's minds.

Common points: 
• Media makes money from the stories.
• It's minority people getting snuffed.
• We're told snippets of what happened.

People are being killed every day without trial.
These murders in America are tip of the iceberg.
Our snuffing of furrn gooks & wogs don't rate a story...
