America’s police forces—allies of the liberal media
Doug H. writes:
This morning I was watching some local news coverage out of Mobile. They were interviewing the police in charge of arresting one of the men responsible for beating the white man in Mobile. The policeman told the reporter this was in no way tied to Trayvon because these men had an ongoing dispute for the past three years. My first thought was, what about the other 19 people involved and talk of them saying it was for Trayvon. This was a white policeman who stated it wasn’t Trayvon related. I might buy his argument that it wasn’t Trayvon alone that brought about this horrible beating, but it was without a doubt the intensity was racially motivated.
I don’t want to sound the least bit like I don’t think the Trayvon myth could have contributed in some way to the horrible beating of that man in Mobile or that the beating was in any way deserved. I saw the interview with the policeman and he seemed respectable and believable. I hardly think that man is in any way an “ally of the liberal media.” As I said he seemed believable and he also has a responsibility to speak emphatically about it so that what was likely already a pre-Trayvon environment of racial tension doesn’t turn into more violence.
