The Democrats are terrified that the violent protests will be coming back to haunt them.
And Attorney General Barr isn’t about to let them get away with their behavior.
William Barr said seven words that stopped CNN dead in their tracks.
The Democrats and the mainstream media are trying to promote the idea that America is a horribly racist country and that unjustifiable deaths caused by the police are common.
Yet many of the police encounters that have come after the death of George Floyd are far different even though the media is treating them the same.
Jacob Blake was shot resisting arrest while armed, he was at the home of his alleged victim who accused him of sexually assaulting and abusing her prior and stealing her car keys.
Yet despite these difference in the cases’ details, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer equated them as being the same when asking Attorney General William Barr how black parents should talk to their children about the Blake and Floyd cases.
Barr responded, “Well, I’m not going to talk about Blake, the Blake case.”
“Why not?” Blitzer asked.
“Because I think it’s different than the Floyd case,” Barr replied.
“What’s different?” Blitzer pushed.
“Well, Floyd was already subdued, incapacitated, in handcuffs, and was not armed,” Barr responded. “In the Jacob case, he was in the midst of committing a felony and he was armed. So, that’s a big difference.”
Blitzer commented that Blake’s family has claimed that he was not armed at the time despite the fact that the Wisconsin Department of Justice said that Blake had a knife on the floorboard of the vehicle.
The Kenosha Professional Police Association released a statement saying that many details that the media were reporting were not accurate.
“The recent officer-involved shooting in Kenosha has produced a variety of feelings and narratives; most of which are wholly inaccurate. The purely fictional depiction of events coming from those without direct knowledge of what actually occurred is incredibly harmful, and provides no benefit to anyone whatsoever, other than to perpetuate a misleading narrative.”
The mainstream media have a vested interest in making sure that the Black Lives Matter protests are continued to be seen as justified.
“Mr. Blake was not unarmed. He was armed with a knife,” the statement from the Kenosha Professional Police Association continued. “The officers did not see the knife initially. The officers first saw him holding the knife while they were on the passenger side of the vehicle. The ‘main’ video circulating on the internet shows Mr. Blake with the knife in his left hand when he rounds the front of the car. The officers issued repeated commands for Mr. Blake to drop the knife. He did not comply.”
The mainstream media want every police case to be viewed with the same outrage as the George Floyd case, but every case is different and judgements should be made individually by the judicial branch in full possession of the facts rather than a riot jumping to conclusions.
