More MSM Anti-cop Agenda

Capture

The freaking mainstream media (MSM) just cannot help themselves in pushing the cops are the bad guys agenda!  In this case, NBC News runs a story about a black city councilman calling for people to commit felony assaults on cops and this is the lame ass headline?

“Mississippi Councilman Kenneth Stokes Calls to Pelt Cops With Rocks”

I find that headline odd, since what he actually said was: “What I suggest is we get the black leadership together, and as these jurisdictions come into Jackson we throw rocks and bricks and bottles at them.”

Now granted, they included the quote in the story, but the headline seriously downplays what he said.  They really can’t seem to help but push/drive/defend the agenda that the cops are the bad guys.  Beyond the headline, the story itself barely mentions the statement made by the councilman, nor does it remotely delve into his long history of making similarly MORONIC comments directed at first responders, such as this one.

Now, just for a second, imagine what the headline would have read if that was a white cop saying the very same thing about black criminals.  Holy f–kballs would that have been one hell of a headline!  And the story?  We would be reading about every single past allegation of any misconduct.

But hey, the MSM does not really have an agenda, right? Or do they?

** Calling On All Law Enforcement Agencies in the US **

As a 19 year career cop, I cannot remember a time when the mainstream news media has not misrepresented law enforcement interactions, especially when use of force was involved. Over the years, that misrepresentation has morphed from slightly misleading to intentionally inflammatory.

That sometimes accidental, often times intentional, misreporting of the incidents has done MUCH to fuel the anti-cop sentiment that is overflowing in some segments of our society.

It is my opinion that the intentional misrepresentation of the facts, especially in their reporting of law enforcement officer’s use of dead force, or alleged instances of police brutality, that has lead to the increase in completely unprovoked ambush attacks on us, the law enforcement officers in this country.

It is long past time for us, the Law Enforcement community across this nation, to do something to stem this tide. Just last night in Texas, Deputy Darren Goforth was ambushed and executed by a man as he stood pumping gas into his patrol car. Yet this morning, the Associated Press news story about and officer involved shooting in Las Vegas, where the suspect was armed, has a headline that reads “Las Vegas police shoot, kill man who ran from traffic stop.” 

It is that sort of intentional misrepresentation of the facts that I am talking about. That right there fuels the anti-cop sentiment. That right there fuels the unstable, cop haters and drives them to ambush us.

It is time for us to STOP FEEDING the ENEMY!

I am calling on Police Chiefs and Sheriffs nationwide to officially stop providing information to news media outlets who are running those blatantly misleading news stories.

Until the media is willing to change their ways, they continue to not only to endanger us, the law enforcement officers nationwide, but they are endangering the entire country.

Please, if you are an administrator of a LE agency, please pass this on to the head of your agency. We need to start acting together to stop this irresponsible “journalism” before it gets us all killed.

Clarification:  Based on some of the comments on our Facebook page, it appears I may not have been clear in my original statement.  I am not suggesting NOT talking to all the media.  What I am suggesting is NOT talking the the media who intentionally edit what we tell them.  We need to be selective in who we talk to.
