Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Law enforcement is investigating and conducting interviews after a Bloomington man was allegedly assaulted and, he said, almost lynched by a group of white people on July 4th. The victim, Vauhxx Rush Booker ... who is Black, recounts being beaten, jumped on and bashed into a tree by a group of white people who'd been harassing and following his group after they entered the wooded area near Lake Monroe, hoping to watch a lunar eclipse.

When officers responded to his 9-1-1 call, Booker wrote, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources' Law Enforcement Division first interviewed the alleged assailants before checking if he was okay. He wrote that law enforcement made no arrests on the scene after they called the Monroe County Prosecutor's Office who told the officers to just file a report.
Now imagine if a group of black people were detaining a white man and the police showed up. Does anything actually think that they'd "interview" the group before checking on the condition of the man being held against his will?

Would the police have left what appears to be visually impaired assailants without arresting a single one of them even with witnesses on the scene?

Just another day in Amerikkka for one unfortunate - and very lucky - soul.

Upon hearing of this Trump promptly fired off a tweet demanding an apology from Booker

I don't now what actually happened here - not sure anyone does, I mean I have read different versions in articles and I wish the first part was on video.... Regardless the video even though heavily chopped up (for the highlights I would hope) sure shows 3 hot heads and one in particular going racist over and over and over. I'm wondering if they have been identified at this point.

I have dealt with "trespassers" several times, my approach is nothing like these tools.

What's TRULY going to have Dem tears creating a flood is when they get their way and defund police and NOBODY comes at all.

"Does anything actually think that they'd "interview" the group before checking on the condition of the man being held against his will?"

Actually, yes, they would in most cases. Because there are a LOT of cases like this regarding all skin colors that occur that nobody ever hears about because they don't fit the current narrative. The media, especially Liberal media, would never make it a story and none of us would ever hear about it. There have been examples of this creeping up over the years that never gain any following. Your point is valid and I do believe there is a problem, but it's nowhere near the level you think it is.

My thoughts after watching the series of videos last night was that there were more people confronting the a***ole rednecks than there were rednecks. They walked away, but it must have been awfully tempting to unleash a can of whoopass on the barefoot, racist, drunk a***oles.

As opposed to the police coming and doing nothing, like in this case?
Why shouldn't the police be defunded, if they're not going to do anything?

What's the saying? Oh yeah!
"Lock them up!!!"
