  • Interesting difference in standards

    OK, Ferguson: white officer makes a ped stop on a black subject who reacts violently and inappropriately, assaults the officer, gets shot for his troubles. International attention. Not incidentally, physical evidence clears the officer.

    12-30-14 a black officer in NJ, on video, fatally shoots an unarmed black male (a violent felon with a 13 year jolt, admittedly) for reasons that are hard to discern on the video. The video was released a few days ago. Its local news, minor national attention when the video is released. Al Sharpton is conspicuous in his absence.

    I'm not judging the NJ officer, although I do note two serious training deficiencies in the video.

    But the difference in reaction and coverage is striking.

    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

    The American news market is already saturated with stories of police officers assaulting/shooting black men, so they've moved on to the next story - Charlie Hedbo and radical Islam.

    But that's fading too. The news cycle moves on, and the people are already bored and looking for their next bit of outrage.

      But Al Sharpton only has one song to sing.

      And international news never really sells as well as domestic stuff.

        Indeed. But the plebes are bored of this. They've already seen enough of it - they expect police officers to kill black men at this point. They need something different to keep them interested.

          Black-on-black violence is a taboo subject among black community organizers and racist charlatans like Sharpton.

            Race makes all the difference. Ferguson was about race, not right and wrong, legal and illegal.

            Ferguson was born from bigotry and racism on the Progressive Left and nothing less.

              But we're talking about the difference in standards...not the origin.

                That's where the standard originates from. The MSM is well to the Left of Center in their views overall. That creates a situation where politically correct racism and bigotry is openly tolerated. That in turn drives the stories like these that get attention.

                If the MSM wasn't racially biased and race wasn't an issue Ferguson and other situations like it wouldn't be news. Instead, these issues would be about whether or not the police involved acted appropriately and nothing more. Race of the individuals involved would not be mentioned simply because it would be irrelevant.

                But, because race is the first thing mentioned in each case it is racism and bigotry that drives the story. If it isn't present (eg., Black on Black violence) then there is no story.

                    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

                          It's simple, I think -----

                          It's January, too cold to riot.

                          So, never mind.

                            I don't find it odd. Blacks have never cared about black on black violence. They only get their pants bunched up when some white cop kills a black man.

                              Nor do they care much about black on white crime
