LOL No one said it wasn't reported on, but we know this story won't get the massive national around-the-clock MSM coverage had the cops been White or Asian and will soon disappear unless something extraordinary happens.

You have no point. It's reported everywhere.

I wonder how the national media will cover this one.

This could be interesting.

Five Memphis Police officers who were involved in the arrest of a 29-year-old suspect who died, have been fired amid growing unrest in the city, radio station KWAM NewsTalk Memphis reports.
Tyre Nichols had been pulled over by officers on Jan.7 and the police department said there had been some sort of confrontation. Nichols ran away, but was later arrested and another confrontation occurred.
The 29-year-old then complained of shortness of breath and was taken to the hospital. He died three days later.
Investigators have yet to reveal any details of the traffic stop – including why Nichols ran away from police.
His family posted a photograph showing Nichols with a badly beaten and disfigured face. He had also been intubated. Many citizens were horrified by the extent of injuries the young man had sustained.
Police Chief C.J. Davis announced Friday night that the five officers involved in the arrest of Nichols had violated multiple department policies including excessive use of force, duty to intervene and duty to render aid.
“Earlier today, each officer charged was terminated from the Memphis Police Department,” the police chief said.

So, how will the national whores... errr... national media cover this?

Will the Biden DoJ intervene?
They should intervene if the state courts decide to cover up for these officers..


Perhaps you didn't get the memo, but we oppose police brutality, period...not situationally like you right-wing morons do...

It will not be covered to the same extent it would be if the officers were white.

I saw it covered on the Nightly News last night and the Today Show this morning. It's on all the news sites.

Or maybe it will not be covered to the same extent because it wasn't captured fully on a video that went viral, a video that if didn't exist, would have resulted in not a single charge being filed...


Perhaps it won't be covered the same because these officers will be charged (hopefully) and we don't have a shit ton of right-wingers taking up for those cops because, 1, the officers were black, and 2...the victim was probably also black.....

The reaction from folks like you is what is telling...but you are too stupid to notice....

This story is not going to be treated the same if there were any White cops involved.

Oh, no wonder right-wingers aren't circling the wagons around these officers and trying to justify what they did.....

The person who was killed isn't white......so to them, the police are doing what they were intended to do.....

As of this point they have not been charged. There is video that is supposed to be released. If the video is released and it shows what the family states and there are no charges things will get ugly.

Why are you right-wingers not circling the wagons around these officers like you do every other time this happens??


Could it be -- because the victim looks like this?

Because that is not the energy you gave when the victim was white............why is that?

The FBI and DOJ has already opened up investigations into this...but please right-wingers, tell us more about how this is not being treated seriously....




My question...where is your outrage? are you not bothered by an unarmed man being beaten to death by the state??

Because no one is shouting 'RACIST COPS".

Perhaps because the chief motivating factor in what they did to this man wasn't his race....furthermore, police brutality is wrong whether it is racially motivated or not....


Again, why isn't the murder of an unarmed man at the hands of the state not troubling to you? Is it because he wasn't wearing a MAGA hat and trying to breach a secured location inside the Capitol building?

it sounds like appropriate action was taken. All five officers were fired and it's being referred to the DA for criminal prosecution.
Now, if we could only do this to white cops who step over the line.
We do. The fact that you glom onto a handful of headlines and refuse to look any further in no way erases that reality. Are you ready to stop being a Schiff yet?
