But if you fan the flames and toss the race card into the story EARLY, you get more play.

If you don't toss the race card in there, you miss out on the Al Sharpton headlines (always good for air time), riots, looters, protests, ad nauseum.

More race card? More headlines and it's a self-sustaining frenzy.

Once the race card is removed there isn't much of a story. "Cop shoots robber" is barely the third story on a metropolitan news station.

because the cop can never shot in self defense against any black person. :rollseyes:

of course we don't know the full story but, who needs the full story when you have all media outlets throwing race. if it's any other race, it's another young boy/teenager. if he's black, it's a black boy/black teenager. great job media. surly the people investigating this have the dashcam and audio of what took place and the truth can come out.

No dashcams/ audio available. The department had purchased a (1) dashcam unit, but no money in budget for the installation.

No money for equipment that could exonerate them or provide a record, but plenty of money spent on offensive military equipment. I guess Federal equipment handouts don't include dash cams.

Cops don't like being filmed, but blowing the **** out of stuff off camera is cool.

Speaking of Polizei not liking to be taped:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/anthon...b_5679075.html


Randy Credico Randy Credico
, Governor Andrew Cuomo's opponent in the upcoming September 9 Democratic Primary was arrested and handcuffed yesterday for making a video of two white police officers arresting a Black man in the subway.
Late last night I received a call from New York gubernatorial candidate Randy Credico who told me he was arrested yesterday afternoon by two plain clothes transit cops at the Van Courtland Park subway stop while on his way to a campaign interview in Westchester.
When Randy saw two white men aggressively stopping a Black man, he began videoing the incident with his cell phone, not knowing that the two white men were transit police. The two police didn't like being videoed, so they arrested Randy. Credico was charged with menacing a police officer, obstructing government administration and resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.





The original story on the radio this morning made no mention of race, and the candidate made no mention of race at all, either. Huff Po threw the race card in there when it wasn't mentioned by Randy at all during the radio interview.

Feds Buy a Boarder Fence...For Ukraine.
As part of the U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine announced by the White House in April, the State Department awarded a $435,000 contract to B.K. Engineering System in Kyiv for razor wire to help “defend the newly imposed borders between Ukraine’s mainland and the Crimean peninsula.” The contract was awarded on June 12, but was just posted online this week.
