It seems in every headline (Trayvon, Ferguson, Baltimore, Eric Garner, McKinney, etc) the media is quick to set the narrative: "racist cop shoots an unarmed black man". Or something similar. You know... just because. But as we comb through this video, there are some key, shocking facts that you may have never heard and/or seen before. Facts that could change everything about this particular case. One can only wonder how many other cases have been distorted by false or omitted facts.
Whatever happened to the LAPD case? Where are the protestors and social justice warriors now? Silence.
The point here is that people were so quick to start a hashtag, it never even crossed their minds to wait for the facts. Context matters. Rarely does an iPhone video (high def as it may be) provide all of the evidence. So here's a tip, WAIT. Just wait, and maybe you won't look like a dummy.
So what do you think? After seeing the video, is the LAPD shooting merely another case of police brutality/racism? Comment below.
