Propaganda media strikes again !
I’ve learned not to trust all the images or reports coming out of the Middle East regarding deaths and injuries. Sometimes it is hard to spot the fakes. Other times, it is a little easier.
Middle East Analyst Raymond Ibrahim who speaks Arabic and follows the Egyptian media closely reports, “A near hysterical woman is heard lambasting the Egyptian military for supposedly killing peaceful Brotherhood protesters, while the Al Jazeera crew videotapes a man who appears to be either unconscious or dead — a supposed victim of the military.”
The scene at the Fateh Mosque in Cairo: A man with a blood-soaked shirt and bandaged head is on the ground. His hand is on his torso resting on the blood stain, suggesting he was shot. When a first aid worker pulls up the “victim’s” shirt, the purportedly unconscious (or dead) man quickly raises his sneakered foot to push away the medic’s hand. All the while, the man’s eyes remain closed.
And Al-Jazeera launched an American version on Tuesday; guess the Comedy Channel is in for some stiff competition.
ARLINGTON -Police have good reason to believe alcohol led to a deadly crash.A man was driving a maroon car on Pioneer Parkway when it slammed into an SUV that was making its way across the intersection on Watson Road. The SUV driver was rushed to the hospital and died short time later.
Police believe the person driving the maroon car was drunk. He was arrested and transported to the Arlington City Jail. A 24-pack of beer was found at the scene of the accident.(emphasis mine)
Reporter Layota Sillmon this morning was saying that “alcohol caused” the collision – WRONG.
Sorry but the alcohol did nothing by itself.
It was the driver who decided to purchase the alcohol.
It was the driver who decided to open one or more cans.
It was the driver who decided to break the law by driving impaired.
It was the driver who hit the SUV.
My sympathies go to the family of the deceased; they are having a hard enough time I’m sure without the media trying to excuse the actions of the criminal involved.
This is a great example of media bias. Had it been a firearm instead of a vehicle, the media would be “The shooter fired a shot after drinking” instead of “The police believe that alcohol lead to a deadly shooting”.
The confrontation involving the Taser happened when Li went to the store on Monday to pick up two iPhones she ordered online.
“The management of the store asked us to have her removed. The officer approached her, told her she wasn’t welcome in the store, and she refused to leave,” Nashua Police Capt. Bruce Hansen said.
Police say the store had issued a stay-away order against Li.
That’s right, she was tasered because she was a.) committing criminal trespass and b.) failed to follow the lawful orders of a police officers.
While the family may claim she didn’t understand, I’m having trouble believing that. She understood enough to order the phones, to recognize others were violating a supposed policy, to videotape it and to argue with management about the issue.
