It would appear that the BGI Narrative Weavers are still singing from the same sheet of music.
The rallying point for the BGI foot soldiers in the media and attendant “Social Justice” entities seems to be the viral video of bikini-clad Dajerria Becton being subdued by police after repeatedly ignoring specific instructions to disperse and leave the area.
Many people seem to be mystified how this incident quickly became the top story on major news networks. To those who have followed the evolution of the Narrative, it isn’t surprising.
Enter a familiar face: The National Bar Association.
“It is insufficient to place him on paid administrative leave, when it is obviously clear that this officer was not enforcing the law, but instead was enforcing his will and power and showing explicit bias towards these African-American teenagers,” the Washington, D.C.-based group said. “The girl is obviously in distress and not in any manner moving or attempting to get away from the officer. She posed no physical threat to the officer.”
However, not everyone actually on the scene who witnessed the interaction first hand agrees with the BGI /National Bar Association manufactured narrative:
Some witnesses in the neighborhood disagreed.
“He grabbed her arm and tried to handcuff her, and she was resisting immediately and she should’ve just stopped at that point,” one white woman, who declined to be identified on camera, told the Fox affiliate. “They were just doing the right thing when these kids were fleeing and using profanity and threatening security guards.”
Becton’s umbrage seems to stem from her belief that she told the officer how to act, and he improperly ignored her commands to him, instead continuing to escalate use of force as she continued to defy his lawful orders:
“He grabbed me, twisted my arm on my back and shoved me in the grass and started pulling the back of my braids,” Becton said. “I was telling him to get off me because my back was hurting bad.”
Becton, though, said she wouldn’t be satisfied with Casebolt’s termination.
Enter stage left, another familiar group: the Soros front group NY-based ColorofChange, co-founded by Van Jones. ColorofChange were instrumental in leveraging the Trayvon Martin shooting to end the Stop-and-Frisk policing policy.
The organization’s new Executive Director, Rashad Robinson, is an experienced Narrative weaver . Before moving to ColorOfChange in 2011, he was the Senior Director of Programs for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
“We strongly urge local officials and Collin County District Attorney to fire Officer Casebolt and charge him with assault and battery. No person who treats another human being, let alone children, in such an abusive, life-threatening manner can be a police officer. All of the officers present at the Craig Ranch pool, who stood by and allowed this police violence to take place must be held accountable and an independent investigation by the Department of Justice should be launched into the McKinney PD. True change begins with accountability.”
And just in case anyone was still unsure as to whether this “outrage” was manufactured or coordinated, the Narrative about “white space” was forefront:
Dehumanizing racial stereotypes about Black girls and boys as ‘inherently wrong’ and ‘out of place’ in white spaces continues to rule the daily lives of Black people.
Robinson was also behind the “hold all officers accountable” campaign to demonize the Ferguson Police force in the Michael Brown confrontation.
