Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Walter Scott may not be your ideal victims with spotless records, but these were still men gunned down while having no weapons of their own. Men seen as nothing but statistics, and had the latter not had indisputable video footage showing an officer raising his gun and firing at a man running away, we would have another issue of a cop claiming his life was in danger and the media fanning the flames of racial tension. CNN and MSNBC whoring out the families and "experts", while Fox News continued ignoring it until the spin can be made, knowing that their monochromatic, geriatric, uninformed base wants one narrative and one only: Obama dividing the nation with race... because apparently having racism thrown at him and addressing racial imbalances is somehow the real racism.
Try spinning this shit now, Fox News... Glenn Beck... Rush Limbaugh... Laura Ingram... Ann Coulter, you soulless cunt. Come on, Sean Hannity, invite another guest and then refuse to let them speak, you self-righteous blowhard.
