On contentious police shootings, the truth will out...eventually

August 29, 2020 By Frank Friday

Mark Twain said a lie is halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on.  He might be astonished today at how that is an understatement.  No sooner is a young black person shot by the police than somebody, often Ben Crump of Trayvon false witness fame, seems to have an elaborate media story spread about the utter innocence of the victim and the homicidal mania of the police.  Just this week, we initially were assured by the usual suspects, like Donna Brazile, that Jacob Blake of Kenosha was just an innocent, unarmed young guy, trying to break up a dispute between two women.  He was even a good family man, with 6 kids, just like the Brady Bunch. And some mean cops just shot him, cuz' that's what they do.

A few days later, we learn the truth.  The cops were responding to a call from his ex-girlfriend, the mother of three of his six, to arrest him.  Seems Jacob had previously beaten her up, sexually assaulted her, taken her car and debit cards, and emptied her bank accounts.  There was a felony warrant out for him.  Blake also fought with the cops when they tried to arrest him, shrugged off a taser blast, and pulled a knife.  The Kenosha cops might also have been aware that Blake often carried handguns.  But whatever, BLM would have liked them to just let him run free and wait for some pistol prestidigitation before opening fire.

Friday, we learned the sainted Breonna Taylor was neck deep in the drug trade of her old boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover.  Police in Louisville had jail-house tapes of him bragging of her, about holding all his money, use of her car, and other helpful activity.  How were they to know she had a new boyfriend when they finally served a warrant on her house?  Or that new boyfriend had an itchy trigger finger and started shooting when police tried to enter?  It matters not, because lawyer Crump is on the job and smells a big settlement from all these cities............To Read More....
