“What part of ‘drop the gun’ is so hard to understand, especially after it’s shouted at you A DOZEN TIMES!” That’s YouTuber Mark Dice’s take in the comments section underneath his fisk of the Keith Lamont Scott “planted gun theory.” As Dice points out, the idea that cops would shout drop the gun when there wasn’t one?
And yet MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid pushed the frame job narrative on air. [Click here to view.] Other than ratings and social justice warrior PC positioning, what’s up with that? Nothing. On the more rational side, some of the MSM SJW’s and their pet “commentators” asserted that all officer involved shootings (OIS) should be investigated by someone other than the police. That makes more than a little sense.
Or does it? Who better than the police to investigate a crime? The Justice Department? FBI? I don’t know about you, but the less the feds have to do with anything the better. Perhaps the state police should handle investigations into OIS’s — unless it’s one of them who did the shooting. Ummm.
What about adding a civilian to the mix? Or leaving things as they are and hope that the court system does its job? Frankly, I don’t know how we as a society can guarantee a fair and impartial investigation into OIS’s. Your thoughts?
