Mainstream Media is the Real Enemy

WTF kind of BS is this? What is the mainstream media trying to do to this country?  It is stories like this, headlines like these that are causing all of the problems in America right now.  If you have not heard of Korryn Gaines yet, you will very soon.

Reading these headlines, you are left wondering why the horrible evil cops would have dared to shoot this woman, let alone her poor 5 year old son.  What horrible sons of bitches those asshole cops are, right?

By just reading these headlines, you would think that the cops just shot her.  You would never even guess this woman was pointing a gun at the cops, and fired that gun at them, but she was and she did. While they mention that in some of these articles, they still make the cops out to be the bad guys.

We need to get something straight.  The public absolutely needs to understand this one simple fact:

It is the suspect’s actions that predicate law enforcement’s responses, period.

  • Gaines chose not to not go to court for her resisting arrest and traffic charges.
  • She chose to not answer the door and instead chose to barricade herself inside her apartment when the cops came to her house with an arrest warrant.
  • She chose to arm herself with a gun and refuse to comply, even after the cops made entry into the apartment.
  • She chose to point the gun at the cops while holding her 5 year old son in her lap as a human shield (mother of the freaking year right there!).
  • Gaines chose to threaten to kill the cops with the gun she was pointing at them.
  • She chose to shoot at the cops.

But somehow this is the cops’ fault? WTF?!?!

Screw the media!

I was only able to find one single media outlet with a headline that truly captures what occurred.  Thank you to the Dallas Morning News!

We have a huge problem in America right now, but the problem is NOT the cops, it is the mainstream media who is manipulating large segments of the population.
