    There is really no information at all, here. Just more click bait.

    That's one sordid story. I wonder what's the motive behind he killing beside the thrill of it.

    Doesn't fit the "narrative" the MSM has designed.

    Would we also be wondering the motive if it were a white officer? Or would it be automatically known.

    Is this death any less tragic because of the color of the killer?

    ...Is the nation grieving less over this one?

    Not exactly. It doesn't seem like a racist crime in the motus operendi. A racist cop would have shot a black man outside of duty or, if on duty, would have made him look like a "dangerous" suspect. The whole kidnapping part of a perfectly innocent man makes it seems non-race related or if it is it's weird.

    PS: I thouht the cop was white. Nice to know otherwise.
    PPS: Your hint of percecution complex is duly noted

    What is this "designed narrative"? That it refuses to report selectively, avoiding coverage that conservatives would consider unfavorable?

    You're really gonna get it for this thread.
    Many of our leftish friends are in denial about the
    media making race an issue only when it's a white
    cop shooting a black victim. Blacks killing blacks,
    & whites killing whites won't register in the news.

    Point out their mischievous agenda...& that will get
    one accused of having an agenda.

    I don't care about the color of cops who are criminals. They should face the same justice with the same penalty. Period.

    When news items feature details of the event,
    complete with pictures, names, locations, times,
    etc. There's a good likelihood that even suspect
    sources will get the basics right.
    In such cases, it pays to search for corroboration
    before dismissing it as fake news. And there are
    times that mainstream media will refuse to report
    things that counter their agenda. The Clinton &
    Lewinsky scandal is one such event....only The
    Drudge Report was willing to broach it.

    The fact that you are objectively wrong and when presented with evidence of it, you refuse to read (cause it's too long) is extremely ironic.

    There is tons of materials and best seller books on non-racial crimes.

    In fact, the fact that the media talk about police brutality and racial crime is a fairly new trend. They used to excuse it or ignore it in the past.

    I have no respect for media anymore to report appropriately and with honesty and integrity.

    You never get the actual picture of any givin incident or event always leaving things up for speculation and rumor.

    You've made a claim, but you've forgotten to post your 'evidence'.
    Now that is irony.
    Don't just claim it....provide it.

    I did search and got nothing.

    However, you do not know much if the sun. The paper is still banned from Liverpool following the Hillsborough disaster.

    I did. You refuse to read then asked for a resumé. You critiqued the resumé and refused to read my rebuttle and read the original (which would have cleared your confusion) because that's the type of man you are. The type who ask for evidence and doesn't read it; doesn't read rebuttle and then accuse the media of bein biased and presenting only one side of the story. If that's not hypocrisy then it simply doesn't exist.

    In the meantime, your position is based on unmentionned talks of you reading and watching the news (which you call biased). So I guess that makes you reasonnable and rational.

    They never deserved your respect.
    Only your wary attention.
