Rush Limbaugh had a good line yesterday regarding Democrat's bringing back the Michael Brown race hoax.

"A young teenager was walking down the street in Missouri pondering his first year at college after having robbed a convenience store."

CNN was so responsible for what happened there. I remember watching the reporting and originally thinking that the officer was completely at fault. The reports especially continually showing the footage of his friend doing the "hands up don't shoot" was very provocative. Then as it was investigated and proved the officer was acting in self defense, CNN spent almost no time clearing the air and reducing the tension. I remember them showing that hands up don't shoot video about every 10 minutes for days. When it came out that his friend had run and not seen anything and that his report was bogus I saw CNN mentioned it a few times then nothing.

Perhaps News media should be required that when a story is proved false they need to spend an equal time on the falsehood of that story that they did on promoting it. Perhaps then they would actually do some real investigations before igniting people's emotions.

You're thinking of Freddie Gray.
The thing was, for most of those 11 times no officer was even touching him. He was having a heart attack and he didn't know it and no one recognized it.

Yes, shortness of breath is a symptom of a cardiac event in progress.

Do you get it yet, working-class-rust-belt-union-fools? Is it finally sinking in? Will you quit voting Democrat, for Christ's sake (even though it's what your daddy and your granddaddy done)?

I mean, how much worse can it get?

So you should probably go back edit your original post, remove the falsehood you posted, so you donít look as bad as bad as Warren, no?

No. The Medical Examiner is quite specific.

How can I work up a mighty outrage over things I care nothing about? There are many things I could get upset about but Warren doesn't seem to be aware of those things.

The link is not working but I agree overall OP. While Brown didn’t rob the store at gunpoint, the way he picked up and flung the store owner, I don’t doubt that he charged that officer. That’s why he was shot. I would have done the same. There’s no way in hell that I would protest for someone terrorizes the community. His type would have died by the gun somehow anyway.

Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin were two different situations. Brown was a thug who got killed for that reason. Martin was killed by a thug and that thug still lives that life.
