CNN is giddy with praise for the Madison Wisconsin response to the Tony Robinson shooting. Their praise comes as a direct result of the professional political class worrying about the delicate sensibilities of the professionally black Grievance Industry.
The “F**k the Police” crowd and the “#Black Lives Matter” crowd are fully engaged to write a very specific narrative of an unjustified police shooting and the professional race-baiters at CNN are more than happy to be their mouthpiece.
However, the current extent to which CNN is willing to obfuscate the facts is arguably even more entrenched than the Trayvon Martin or Mike Brown shootings.
The protesting crowd has now marched to fill the Wisconsin Capitol with their cries of grievance, yet no-one seems to be factually looking -yet again- at the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
Tony Robinson, a convicted armed robbery felon, was assaulting people in the street. He then went inside a building and assaulted the occupants and then the police officer who tried to stop his rampage.
As shared by an eye witness:
…This so called “gentle giant” was high on suspected hallucinagenics, and in a violent, volitile rage, walking down the streets of madison battering citizens, whom were frantically calling 911 for police assistance.
This out of control, violent man, high on acid hallucinagenic drugs, which not only gave him super human strength but made him impervious to pain, than battered a peace officer. Yes a peace officer who’s job that night was to protect the citizens screaming for help, and to protect the community from further harm from this man.
Again a man who made the choice to consume quantities of drugs, that made him a mad man, who was on a mission to critically harm others in his path”… (link)
But CNN is selling a narrative of Tony Robinson as a victim, and in the clearest example of the extent of their ideological affirmations in that regard is obvious in this article.
Including their happy highlighting of the PC frozen LEO and Politicos:
[…] Within hours of the shooting, [Police Chief] Koval went to Robinson’s mother’s home.
“We need to start as any healing or any reconciliation should with an ‘I’m sorry,’ and I’ve done that privately, and I’m attempting to do that publicly and that’s the only way we can sort of begin the healing or the rift that may take years if at all to mend,” the police chief said.
The mother didn’t want to meet with him but the chief talked and prayed with the biracial teenager’s grandparents in the driveway, he said.
They told Koval to hold off on trying to talk to the mother because emotions were too intense.
“I couldn’t even begin to get my hands around the enormity of the loss and the tragic consequences,” Koval said. “Nineteen years old is too young.”
[…] Wisconsin Circuit Court documents indicate Robinson pleaded guilty in December to an armed robbery that occurred last April. But when Koval was pressed for more details, he refused to talk about the teen’s record or any run-ins with law enforcement.
“I could but I choose not to,” the chief said. “I frankly think it is, for our purposes today, wholly inappropriate and I am not going to blemish anyone’s character, particularly someone’s as young as his.”
[…] On Friday night, dozens of demonstrators gathered in Madison. “Who do we trust?” some called out, prompting the response, “No one!”
And in another refrain, they chanted, “Black lives matter,” a phrase that Ferguson protesters coined.
Online the #WillyStreet hashtag, referencing to Williamson Street, where the shooting happened, trended. “Praying for Madison tonight,” wrote one activist. “Stand up, sit in, walk out – until u get answers. And until there are no more hashtag eulogies.” (read full article)
…And so it goes. Yet again. The Black Grievance Industry continues the ridiculous protests against a police officer defending himself -and protecting the citizens of Madison Wisconsin- from a 19-year-old violent street thug and convicted felonious armed robber.
Wash – Rinse – Repeat !
