Lancaster Shooting Proves Media Crafted Narrative

The newest city being roiled by rioting is Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where a man with a knife was shot by police.

Any police shooting is automatically a cause for riots, because the Black Lives Matter movement no longer makes distinctions. If someone they believe fits their narrative is shot, the circumstances no longer matter. As we saw in Minneapolis just a few weeks ago, even false reports of a police shooting now start riots because once the word goes out, nothing can stop the tidal wave that follows.

So the case of the shooting of Ricardo Munoz, the narrative got set early. Riot now, get details later.

But notice that the media is busy covering this as a “protest.” It is not a protest when objects are thrown at police officers.

At the station house, protesters “damaged a county vehicle parked in the front of the police station,” police said in a Monday morning press release.”

“Bricks were thrown through the front of the police station and into the post office window,” police said. People also “threw water bottles, glass bottles, rocks, bricks, gallon jugs of liquids and parts of plastic road barricades at Officers.”

Crowds gathered on an access ramp to the police station, on West Chestnut Street, and in an adjacent park, where police ultimately released pepper spray after the protesters were given warnings to disperse before the gas was deployed, the department said.”

But because the media is complicit in trying to reset the narrative, the riot is deemed a “protest.”

The entire above thread is full of examples of how the press has tried to spin this story. Most, if not all, of the news reports referred to Ricardo Munoz as a black man – which was then deleted by the AP in their updated story. One of the Twitter mob called Munoz “reportedly autistic,” a claim which cannot be currently substantiated by any of the reports. Munoz’s criminal history indicates mental illness, as he was awaiting trial for the apparently random stabbing of FOUR people last year.

Once the police released the bodycam footage, it was pretty apparent that this was not going to fit the narrative.

But that didn’t matter, the mob would not be satiated. They came to riot, so they were going to RIOT.

But this knee-jerk reaction to every single police-involved shooting now has Forbes concerned. No, not about the safety of Lancaster, or about how the narrative got so wrong. No, it’s all about how will this hurt JOE BIDEN in swing-state Pennsylvania!

And even Forbes stealth-edited their headline from “riot” to “protest” almost immediately. The narrative must be preserved!

The citizen journalists on the ground who are live tweeting these riots are putting the lie to the narrative, and the mainstream media news outlets are desperately trying to cover it up. But the genie left the bottle a long time ago. It only takes a simple rumor or allegation of a police shooting, the mob comes ready to be assembled like an IKEA chair out of the box. And like the IKEA chair, there might be some screws loose or missing. Having lost control of the mob, the media is now trying to deny that it was a mob at all. And as these flash riots continue moving into smaller towns (Lancaster is smaller in population than Kenosha), the more the average American knows that the match that starts the next riot can be lit where they live.

    Once the media succeed in representing to the majority of the citizenry that rioting is a legitimate form of protest then every grievance will be seen as a valid excuse for mayhem. To paraphrase Shakespeare the Leftist media have cried havoc and loosed the dogs of riot, and they think that they can pin the blame on Trump just in time for the election. Who ever wins in November will be stuck with dealing with the civil disorder created and mainstreamed by the Left.

      Also, once they have loosed those dogs, will they like how the other side uses them? I doubt it.
      They’re already having conniptions over someone fighting back.

    because the Black Lives Matter movement no longer makes distinctions
    Did BLM, Inc. ever make distinctions? Were they ever interested in truth?

    the mob would not be satiated
    That’s pretty much the whole point of mobs.

    the mob comes ready
    There are some people investigating just how it is they are so ready when this stuff happens. Hopefully they will be able to substantiate their investigation.

    8 years of Obama allowed these petulant children to think that this is the correct behavior.
    This will continue until their Democrat leadership parents slap their hands.

    And somehow a good bunch of them have been arrested for ARSON and a slew of other charges, with individual bail set at a million bucks each. Which none of them could pony up, so they’re in jail for a good long time. Munoz was out on his own million dollar bail waiting for his trial to come up next month, from his March 2019 knife attack. So figure it takes at least 18 months for your case to come up in Lancaster. Gee, too bad for these rioters.

    One thing that might be lost in the noise of this is that the entire incident took less than 4 seconds, from the time Munoz burst out the front door to the time he was dead on the sidewalk. The officer had just barely arrived at the scene. While I have no doubt this was suicide by cop, I really have to wonder if this was also a setup by his family, an attempt to ambush another LEO.
