CNN’s news coverage is shockingly becoming more deranged by each broadcast.
Each day the network outdoes itself with its over-the-top liberal bias.
And one CNN commentator made an insane comment about one police shooting.
Rioting and looting over the murder of George Floyd has subsided and now radical leftists are stoking the flames after the killing of Atlanta resident Rayshard Brooks.
The anti-police brigade have been trying to draw a comparison between the police killings of Floyd and Brooks, but they don’t line up.
In the case of Brooks, he was passed out drunk in a Wendy’s drive thru, then resisted arrest after failing a breathalyzer test.
Brooks rolled around on the ground with two officers, stole a taser from one of them, and shot the taser at an officer as he tried to flee the scene.
Despite the officer following police procedure, Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms buckled under intense public pressure and fired the officer.
Bottoms said, “While there may be debate over whether this was an appropriate use of deadly force, I firmly believe that there is a clear distinction between what you can do and what you should do…I do not believe this was a justified use of deadly force and have called for the immediate termination of the officer.”
The police chief also resigned after the incident.
It’s no wonder police morale is down when mayors and top brass won’t stand up for rank-and-file officers.
But the coverage from the media has been even worse.
During a panel discussion on the topic, far-left commentator Angela Rye used the most ridiculous justification possible for Brooks’s actions.
In reaction to CNN host Alisyn Camerota stating that the officer acted in self defense, Rye fired back, “That man was asleep in a car parking lot. He ran and he realized that his life was at risk. That is why he took that taser. He was trying to fight back because every time we don’t fight back we die. I don’t want to take away the chief’s time but please don’t paint it that way. That is not fair.”
This is a deeply dangerous and immoral response.
Saying “every time we don’t fight back we die” is an incitement for other criminals to resist arrest and go for officers’ tasers – or guns.
This commentary is just as insane as CNN stating that every white person is born racist because of their privilege.
Brooks’s interaction with the cops was calm and rational. Things didn’t turn violent until he resisted arrest after over 20 minutes of respectful dialogue.
Rye is unsurprisingly in favor of the radical “defund the police” movement.
Leftists don’t respect property rights, so they hate when cops defend property or enforce apolitical law and order.
