“The police shooting death of a 12-year-old boy with a toy gun in Cleveland has sparked an investigation — and questions over why officers opened fire instead of using a stun gun. Two officers have been placed on administrative leave pending a probe into Saturday’s shooting of Tamir Rice.
Police said officers responded to a report of a person waving a gun around at a playground and that Tamir was shot after he allegedly refused to put his hands up and reached in his waistband for what appeared to be a handgun.”*
Thanks to the injustice of Ferguson, now we at least have two more recent unexplained, and unprovoked deaths that where the media painted the picture of the victims in the casket as the monsters ! They sympathized with the police that murdered them like animals, and treated their killers as martyrs.
Dealing with the current unrest in Ferguson we understand the duplicated and pointless observations and true intent will be totally ignored by buffoons in one room, that have already decided the victim deserved it.
Well, of course we know Tamir was 12 Years old so they may convince the world he deserved to be shot to death because he pushed a child down the street.
When Mike Brown died you know the bullets were less important than the store footage.
The media may decide that Tamir was cursing and disrespectful and running around the neighborhood throwing rocks at the neighbors so he deserved to be shot dead at 12 years old, for no damn reason.
How about Tamir threw up a peace sign or any hand sign in a photo, meaning he had to be in a gang and deserved to die?
Those ideas appear to be foolish and almost comical, if it wasn’t so tragic, but as of late this idiotic thinking is making people not sympathize with the victim, because of a few minutes of video footage.
The media used the same defamation and observations to create the monster called Mike Brown, and of course Trayvon and convinced us that both boys deserved to be shot like animals because they were thugs and listened to rap music. The talking heads took one instance and one moment in Mike Brown’s life, and let that video footage dictate his legacy and decide every moment of his stolen life, was deserved by the ignorant and judgemental.
The media protected the police before and after the killings of Trayvon and Mike Brown, they were rewarded for killing unjustly, and we would be fools to assume it will not happen again.
