Last night, Twitter tried to stir things up with a tweet about a man being shot in Minnepolis by the police.
But of course they left out the critical information that the man shot at the police first.
The body cam shows they gave him every chance. Told him to put his hands up, he still rammed the police cars and tried to pull away. They tried to block off his car. Told him again, “Hands up.” Then he clearly fired on them. Pretty much no other options.
You can tell the guy with the body cam really didn’t want to fire but ended up having to do so, to protect himself and his brethren officers.
So what was the response of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who represents that area? Was it to come to support the police officers placed in an untenable position? Of course not. She accused them of “state sanctioned murder,” and she lied about the actual facts, seemingly trying to stoke the outrage machine.
“MPD is a joke, this isn’t transparency or accountability,” she said. “A man was killed, his family terrorized & robbed of a son and all they are left w/ is more questions than answers. Let’s stop normalizing + justifying state sanctioned murder by those who take an oath to uphold the law.”
How about let’s stop leftists lying and trying to cause riots? What about honestly admitting in virtually every police shooting either the police were attacked, fired upon or legitimately endangered? This kind of lie is endangering the police in addition to the city. But it serves the progressive purpose of antagonizing. It isn’t about the reality. That’s why the facts in these cases never really matter to the left and why they’re constantly distorting them or out and out lying about them. All that matters is the narrative that the cops (and the state) are even and need to be eliminated.
Yes. That’s really what they want. It’s all about driving the country further left.
