Now, mind you, I don’t think Officer William Dorsey Jones Jr. did anything wrong. This was a messy situation created by the “root cause” of runaway crime and lack of enforcement in Dem cities. But if Jones had been a white guy from Louiseville, the media would be telling a very different story. We know that because the media was playing up the girl and the family (who are innocent victims in this) while ramping up anti-cop propaganda until the same media found out that the shooter was a black cop who at least broadly shared their politics.
If Officer Jones Jr. had been a white man or woman, could he have been the victim of a successful lynch, like Officer Kim Potter? Hard to know if the media would have added to its toll of two lynched officers, but I’m pretty sure that the media would have tried.
“Earlier this week, Mr. Jones’s identity and badge number began to circulate on social media. At a news conference on Tuesday where Ms. Orellana Peralta’s family spoke, an attendee held a sign showing Mr. Jones’s in-uniform portrait. Above the photo it read: “WANTED.”
The media however no longer wants him. It wants to give him a big hug and protect him from the family.
Is that justice? No, it’s pure racial politics. Which is what we have now in America.
