Where is the outrage? Where is the marching in the streets? Where is the video, played again and again? Where are the riots and the looting? Where are the sanctimonious race baiters? Where are the op-ed columns and the editorials?
Why is this story buried somewhere inside in the Tribune's print edition? Why did I have to use the search function to find it on the Tribune's news site?
These are fair questions, but who wants to ask them after a Chicago cop was beating to within an inch of her life by a West Side motorist who may have been on PCP? Here's
the story and here's a column by John Kass.
Yes, we don't have all the facts, only a story told by the police superintendent. And as those of us who constantly challenged the Ferguson narrative being played on on the streets, we ought to wait until we make any judgment. Unlike the race baiters of Black Lives Matter. And maybe we'll find out that the cop deserved to be beaten--right?
My point here is one of equivalency, fairness and justice.
