It’s a stunning headline: “Stephon Clark case doesn’t lend itself to easy answers, or quick ones.”
Seriously? Brutal thug cops burst into a family’s backyard and gun-down an unarmed 22-year-old and the San Francisco Chronicle says that! WTF?
The Clark family wants criminal charges against the officers who opened fire. Protesters are demanding changes in how police approach black men in tense situations.
The Chronicle on the other hand, has decided to take the side of the brutal killer-cops. No surprise there.
Here’s the racist Chronicle’s spin, “Experts who study police use of force say the facts and officers’ motives in a fatal shooting are not always immediately clear, despite appearances. Decisions on whether to file charges can take months, even years.”
Those are code words from the Chronicle signaling the white communities in Sacramento and San Francisco that everything is OK. It’s business as usual for the police.
The Chronicle is obviously thinking about Mario Woods too. Woods was executed in the Bayview in December 2015. Video footage clearly showed he was murdered by the police. The Chronicle is doubling-down on protecting San Francisco’s thug cops.
It’s how the white people in the Bay Area roll.
