Media Still Pushing for Unrest
They want a riot and by golly, they're going to get one, even if they have to push the wildest conspiracy theories in the face of actual.....you know, facts and shit. Here's Channel 5:
- On the night of the Laquan McDonald shooting, Chicago police entered the nearby Burger King restaurant on Pulaski Road to see what its security cameras captured, a store official told NBC 5 News six months ago.
When they left, the store official said, the security video was missing.
Now NBC 5 News has obtained screen grabs of what appears to be at least one police officer in the Burger King at what appears to be a computer terminal that night.
The Tribune also has some story hidden behind their paywall. But the FBI says, "No tampering:"
- A forensic analysis for the FBI found “absolutely no evidence of tampering” with video from a Burger King near the scene where Laquan McDonald was gunned down by Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke last year on the South Side, a source close to the investigation said Monday.
We are no great fans of the FBI - they're accountants and bean counters with an unlimited budget. But one thing they're good at is computer stuff and data crunching, and if they say something like "absolutely," they're probably right on. But certain media outlets are running this "conspiracy" crap for the sole purpose of keeping certain folks (or people) on edge.
