Another thing you should be careful about is the information spewed out by certain media outlets. They’ll do or say anything to try and convince their viewers, no matter how blatantly wrong it is. For instance, just look at how they describe the person in this image.
“No active warrants?” What the hell is even that? Are they trying to tell us that the person the police shot and killed was going to do something illegal in the future? No, they couldn’t just type “innocent” because that would describe certain authority figures badly. How ridiculously absurd, and the responder really couldn’t have said it any better.
