PNWguy Posted January 6, 2019 Share Posted January 6, 2019 I saw the story when it broke and it was truly tragic. Then I saw the sketch based on witness descriptions of a thin build white male in his 30's or 40's and the race baiting began. From what I understood based on just hearing news blurbs (and we all know how accurate and unbiased those are...) a white man in a red pickup pulled up next to the family and started shooting, killing the little girl and injuring the mother. People were calling it a hate crime and blaming Trump. Of course. I guess it's been pretty big news in that area for the past week. Now, I just saw another breaking news blurb and they said they have a suspect in custody, but it's a black man and the shooting was possibly gang-related. WTF? http://www.fox26houston.com/news/multiple-sources-say-black-man-in-custody-in-jazmine-barnes-case HOUSTON (FOX 26) — Multiple sources tell FOX 26 News that a suspect is in custody in the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, along with a possible second suspect. Sources say the alleged shooter is black, not white, and also that the shooting may have been gang-related. So… How do you go from several witnesses swearing it was a white guy that looks like this... ...to a black gang member? Also, I haven't seen any details about how the whole incident unfolded or ended. No mention of if the victims were just sitting in traffic, or moving. No mention of where the pickup was in relation to the family car, no mention of where the witnesses were situated at the time of the shooting, no mention of caliber, no mention of the actions of the shooter or the pickup prior to or after the shooting, etc. The whole thing is lacking a tremendous amount of detail that you think would be reported on and gone over and over in the media. But nothing. And now the suspect in custody is a black man??? The whole thing just doesn't make sense. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
