There’s a story CNN was endlessly reporting on yesterday on TV: The liberal Daily Beast has it here, too; A white cop has killed an unarmed black man and it looks very questionable.*** We all know about the New York City killing of Eric Garner. BIG news all over every news venue. And, of course, who needs to be reminded of the nightmare in Ferguson “Hands up, don’t shoot” Missouri, or Treyvon Martin? Huge news; White kills Black. Enormous news. EVERYWHERE; radio, TV, you name it.
Then there is THIS news story out of Philadelphia, which has got little or no coverage. You haven’t heard about it; James Patrick Stuhlman was a fifty-ish man who, every evening, took the dog for a walk with his teen aged daughter. That night, it was “a little late” so he asked her not to come with him, possibly saving her life. NBC, where my link is from, only tells us the killing happened “last week”: apparently, nobody even cares about getting the date right? Here is the kid, 15 years old, who killed Mr. Stuhlman:
Doesn’t anybody CARE? Where are Holder, Obama…Sharpton? This is so sad. This man’s wife and daughter are now alone, his business partner is without a partner now, his six siblings are missing a beloved brother…
I care. Frankly, I don’t care WHAT color kills what OTHER COLOR….it ALL should be reported fairly. Yes, some of the stories above are law enforcement possibly overstepping its bounds, but really? This story gets literally NOTHING?
Don’t you find this agenda-driven, grossly biased, negligent reporting?
***By the way, FOX is announcing this morning that “The Department of Justice is investigating this case.” Why? It’s not a Federal Case. Let the local police department do its work, the cop’s charged with murder! What more?
