A chronic problem, and there are few things worse than cops misleading us about the TRUTH! ANY police officer telling lies should be severely disciplined.
Excerpts from the Article:
Traditionally, police have been the ones to call when a common citizen has been assaulted, robbed, had his home burgled, or a car stolen. They were called noble, even honorable names like Blue Knights or New Centurions with the motto “To Protect and Serve” on their four-wheeled chariots. However, something has gone terribly wrong.
Many police officers have become the opposite of what they were meant to be. Even when caught on video committing atrocities against the citizens they swore to protect, they downplay and even get away with the evil they have done by lying and spinning the facts.
Take for example Buffalo, New York, on June 4, 2020. In clear daylight, the city’s Emergency Response Team (“ERT”) marched toward peaceful protesters. Two ERT cops shoved an elderly man down with such force that when the victim’s head hit the ground an audible “thunk” is heard as blood runs from one ear. The ERT leaves him. The cops tell the press he “tripped and fell.” The Lie. Then a video of what happened appears on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. Uh oh: The Truth.
In Minneapolis, when journalists, medical staff, and others returned to their cars after demonstrations, they found their tires had been slashed. Cops attributed the destruction to rioters. The Lie. Bystander video shows the cops slashing those tires with knives. The Truth. Press Release: Police only “deflated” those tires to prevent “vehicles [from] driving dangerously and at high speeds in and around protesters and around law enforcement.” The Spin.
If a tree falls in a forest and there is no one around to hear it, did it make a sound?
If cops kill a citizen on a Minneapolis street and there are no bystanders to video-record it, did the cops really kill him?
