Watch this video and see just how biased the MSM media is when it comes to reporting the situation in Charlotte.
Usually a prosperous, fun and fully-integrated Southern town with oodles of charm, Charlotte, NC has turned into Ground Zero under Obama’s race baiting rhetoric. Three years ago, former Florida A&M football player Jonathan Ferrell was killed by police, and a year ago the officer’s manslaughter trial ended in a mistrial, and both events let to riots. This latest riot is over a 43-year-old black man who was shot and killed by police.
And where is Obama? Couldn’t he travel to The Tar Heel State and explain as a Harvard lawyer that everyone has constitutional rights to a fair trial? Couldn’t he come down and say that “violent response is wrong, let’s have a dialogue” like he does when Muslim extremists commit crimes? No. He’s nowhere to be seen. He couldn’t find a camera or podium at the White House, or the golf course?
Meanwhile the media whips up public outrage, stoking the anger of the local black population by making wild claims that white police are targeting black people and we live in a time of Nazi-like policing and it’s all getting worse with Trump in the election and the institutional prejudice of white policemen.
The problem? It’s just not true.
“It is the most surprising result of my career.”
Read Gary Bauer as he reviews the statistics:
- More whites are shot every year by police than blacks. The Washington Post reports today, “Law enforcement officials have fatally shot 706 people this year, 163 of them black men.” That means just 23% of fatal police shootings involved black men and the vast majority of those shootings were justified. (See below.)
- A Harvard study found that there was zero racial bias by police in the use of deadly force. The black economics professor who conducted the study said, “It is the most surprising result of my career.” The New York Times conceded, “The result contradicts the image of police shootings that many Americans hold.” But they have that image because of media bias.
- According to data from the Department of Justice, and confirmed by a study conducted by a University of Pennsylvania criminologist, black police officers were 3.3 times more likely to use deadly force at a crime scene than were other officers.
- According to Heather Mac Donald, a research fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black criminal than a black citizen is to be shot by a police officer.
- The Washington Post conducted a massive study of police shootings last year and concluded: “But only a small number of the shootings — roughly 5 percent — occurred under the kind of circumstances that raise doubt and draw public outcry. . . The vast majority of individuals shot and killed by police officers were . . . armed with guns and killed after attacking police officers or civilians or making other direct threats.”
