Black Lives Matter...Well Sort Of

"How could there be no verdict against the officer who, basically, strangled the husband and father?" Because the coroner's office determined that the choke-hold was not the cause of death. They instead determined that Garner died as a result of all the officers piling on top of him, suffocating an obese man with asthma and a heart condition. Now at the point when the individual officer was cleared by the one grand jury, the DA should have convened another grand jury against all the officers who piled on Garner. That's probably what he should have done from the start, but the media and the mob wanted the choke-hold to be the focus of the grand jury. Because everyone was sooo focused on the one officer and a choke-hold, that's what the DA went for and an opportunity was missed. This is one of three similar cases involving a resisting obese man I've seen in the media in the last five or six years (two black, one white). All were asphyxiated in the same way; by the cops physically taking the guys down and the hog-piling on top of them until the were suffocated. In at least one of these cases, iPhones were rolling and that guy cried out that he couldn't breathe either, but to no avail. We should be addressing how police deal with arresting or detaining people with those physical proportions. We can't solve the problem until all you guys in the media stick to the raw facts. Now you all should be pushing for a wrongful death suit against the NYPD for their handling of a relatively minor incident which never should have resulted in a man's death. Maybe that will force law enforcement agencies across the nation to review how they handle these situations. Push THAT narrative.

In the study, things that constituted sexual assault included things like 'unwanted touching' and 'verbalized sexual references.' Here at the campus I work at, you can be terminated if you look at a female for too long. Doesn't matter whether or not they're a student or a member of the faculty/staff, gawk and you're gone.
I think they were more than happy to release this report on the very day Gruber went before congress. I bet the MSM was dizzy with relief that there was something else to report on in Washington yesterday besides Gruber.
The dems decide to throw a bomb as they leave their majority behind next week, and they decide to throw it on the very day the 0-care architect testifies before congress. Gee, what a coincidence. They don't care who's life this report may endanger, all they care about is causing political damage to their rivals and running cover for the ACA. All politics, all the time. Nothing else matters, not even lives.

On second thought, that IS kind of plausible, isn't it?

When monkeys fly out of Hilliary's butt.
The 'narrative' mentality has infected practically all journalism outlets these days. This is why things have been convoluted and crazy these last number of years whenever anything of newsworthy substance comes to the surface. Take the grand jury decision not to indict the police officer in Eric Garner's death. This officer was examined to see if the choke-hold he had on Mr. Garner caused his death, intentionally or not. The coroner's report clearly shows that it did not. Instead they found it was caused by all the officers hog-piling on top of him coupled with pre-existing medical conditions, which killed Garner. Naturally, no indictment could be handed down on the officer who applied the choke-hold. Yet the narrative, even on Fox, is all about "the choke-hold death of Mr. Garner," despite the fact that the choke-hold was ruled out as the cause of death. No-one cares about the facts anymore; its all about the 'narrative.' If the facts mattered, they'd all be talking about getting police to develop safer methods for taking down large and/or obese people without causing their unnecessary deaths. THAT's the real story here.
It is no longer taught that way. Within the last couple of years I've taken freshman and sophomore journalism classes. These days, the students are taught that their job no longer simply consists of the who, what, when, where, why, and how of a story. Its about becoming "active agents for change." And, in becoming that agent, stories must be seen through a social justice filter, and a narrative needs to be created building upon that aspect of social justice; be it feminism, racism, income inequality, whatever. No lie; this is what they're taught. In other words, they are no longer journalists (and those who started out in these classes never were nor will be), but activist propagandists.
Besides, what we're seeing here has nothing to do with policing. What we're seeing is a continuation of OWS. They co-opted Furguson months ago. Where do you think all those pre-printed protest signs came from? They've got plenty of support from the Panthers and other black Marxist organizations. Don't be fooled.
Actually, its people like you describe who are aggressively weeded out of college and university criminal justice programs as a matter of policy.
"Historically one of the most successful ways to “fundamentally transform” a nation is to undermine the legal authorities and sow dissention and civil unrest." And that's why we see the OWS morons involved in this. When I heard that it was they who were doing much of the organizing for this, I thought to myself, well, it figures. They have natural allies in the Marxist black liberation movement. This is all just another attempt to tip the whole thing over. I say, let them spew and twist. Once we all know who is at the bottom of it, their efforts are in vain. I'd like to see more than a few of them in jail over it, but we'll have to wait until their allies in our government (0 and Holder at the top of that bunch) are out of office.
