President Obama Speaks:
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon Speaks
Another major similarity to the Trayvon Martin shooting is the way the pack media attack the Police Chief. In Sanford Florida it was Bill Lee, in Ferguson Missouri it is Thomas Jackson.
There is a point of effect when the media become desperate to build up the next part of the story they are selling. The reporters become a rabid and collective pack and lose their capability to view any additional information objectively.
The media’s intense thirst for the next angle, the next “hook”, creates problems within the community as attention is given to members of less than stellar character, motivation or stability. In Sanford Florida in 2012 one of those key unstable agitators was a woman called Francis Oliver.
