How the Left Lies When Blacks Are Shot By Police
Were Alton Sterling and Philando Castile really innocent victims of racist cops?
By Matthew Vadum —— Bio and Archives
July 11, 2016
In order to reinforce the false narrative that blacks are systematically discriminated against in America, the Left and its accomplices in the mainstream media spent much of last week lying over and over again about two black men shot to death by police officers.
Like a burnt out Hollywood screenwriter, the Left keeps recycling the same old stock characters. Black men are tragic heroes. White people and police are racist agents of an evil system. The facts are never allowed to intrude on these fantasies.
Michael Brown of Ferguson, Mo., was supposedly a gentle giant. Trayvon Martin of Sanford, Fla., was said to look like the son President Obama never had. “When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids,” Obama said after Martin’s death in 2012. Later we learned these were politically motivated lies generated by leftist lynch mobs.
This evidence has become available after the horrific Black Lives Matter-inspired massacre of police officers in Dallas during a Black Lives Matter demonstration. With five policemen dead, it was the deadliest attack on U.S. law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001.
FrontPage reported Friday on the media’s beatification of Alton Sterling, who died in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile, who died near St. Paul, Minn. But new information has emerged through enhanced scrutiny of independently shot crime scene videos showing Castile in extremis after being shot and the physical altercation between Sterling and police.
The new information makes it clear that Sterling, a career criminal well known to Baton Rouge police, was trying to wrest a gun away from a cop. While cops were wrangling him, Sterling indicated he intended to harm the officers. The cops responded appropriately, shooting him to death.
With Castile, it now appears he may have had a gun at his side or on his lap. In addition, the lawyer for the officer involved, Jeronimo Yanez, reportedly said his client ordered Castile to stay motionless but the man refused to comply. In other words, Yanez responded to the presence of the gun and moves by Castile, not to Castile's race.
Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond “Lavish” Reynolds, had said Castile was trying to retrieve his wallet after informing police that he was in possession of a concealed weapon and a permit allowing him to carry it. “He let the officer know that he had a firearm, and he was reaching for his wallet and the officer just shot him in his arm,” Reynolds said. She told Yanez, “You told him to get his ID, sir – his driver’s license.”
An audio recording of police communications purports to depict officers saying they were about to pull over Castile because he matched the description of a robbery suspect. Still video frames of a robbery in Minnesota have also surfaced that show a man who at least somewhat resembles Castile. At time of writing neither piece of evidence appeared to have been authenticated. A squad car video of the incident also exists, according to investigators, but it does not appear to have been made public.
Castile, who had a long history of driving infractions but no felony convictions, did in fact possess a permit to carry a gun, the Star Tribune reported Saturday, citing a confidential source. Under state law, the names of such permit holders are not made public but the source said Castile was issued the permit when he lived in Robbinsdale, Minn.
There are still many unanswered questions about the slaying of Castile, but the new information seems unhelpful to those arguing his shooting was unjustified.
A slow-motion version of one video of the Sterling incident, which took place in the parking lot of a food store, appears to exonerate the officers involved who responded to a 9-1-1 call about a man menacing another with a gun.

Slow Motion Analysis of Alton Sterling's Final Moments (GRAPHIC CONTENT)
Published on Jul 6, 2016
Hopefully this video will answer some questions and concerns people have about yet another police shooting. My condolences to Alton Sterling's family, and my support to the officers who were placed in this difficult situation in order to protect and serve.
*******
According to the slow-mo analysis, while the cops were on the ground leaning over Sterling one shouts "he's got a gun" before they draw their firearms. An officer cautions Sterling shouting, "hey bro, you fu--ing move, I swear to God."
Sterling seems to reply, "thanks for the free gun,” a clear indication he had taken or was trying to take an officer's gun, and shots ring out. Someone shouts "you're dead" and more shots ring out. The camera cuts away then returns to show Sterling lying on his back with blood pooled over his chest.
Unless this version of the video was dishonestly manipulated or inaccurately interpreted (which does not appear to be the case), that would seem to close the book on the Alton Sterling case. We'll have to see if any more evidence surfaces.
FrontPage readers are painfully aware that the Left cannot advance its agenda without lying.
The Left reveres thugs. It jumped on the bandwagon promoting the lie that Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin were innocent angels unjustly cut down by white executioners. The truth, as we now know, is that both young black men were killed in self-defense by the white men they intended to harm.
We now know that "hands up, don't shoot," the mantra of angry mobs and left-wing talking heads, was a complete hoax. Brown was a thug killed by a white police officer and trying to grab the cop's gun. He did not get gunned down while trying to surrender, as the Left claims.
We now know that Martin, who was suspected to have been a burglar, wanted to hurt Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman because he believed his friend when she told him Zimmerman might be a homosexual stalking the area.
The Left creates alternate realities in order to justify or rationalize past events and to move its agenda forward.
The Left lied when it claimed the recent Orlando and Dallas massacres were about the arguably easy availability of guns. The Left lied when it claimed former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot because Sarah Palin put her congressional district on a "target list," ignoring the fact that military metaphors have long been a bipartisan part of America's political culture.
The Left lied when it claimed during the Obamacare debate that there were tens of millions of uninsured Americans and that an angry anti-Obamacare mob hurled racist epithets at black Democrat lawmakers on their way to the U.S. Capitol.
The Left lied when it claimed Bill Clinton was impeached because Republicans were sexual prudes. The Left lied when it claimed Matthew Shepard was murdered because he was gay -- in fact, his connection to the drug underworld was the central factor in his killing. The Left lied when it claimed Ronald Reagan hated and discriminated against gays, an absurd claim to make about a former six-term president of the Screen Actors Guild whose livelihood was dependent on getting along with the many powerful gays of Hollywood.
The Left lied when it claimed Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was a racist conservative when in fact he was an agnostic animal rights enthusiast and anti-bullying activist enraged at the Janet Reno-orchestrated massacre of mostly non-white members of the Branch Davidian church of Waco, Texas.
This is not an exhaustive list of leftist lies.
Meanwhile, information has surfaced about the identity of the allegedly lone sniper in Dallas who late last week gunned down a reported 12 police officers, killing five of them. The massacre apparently inspired copycat attacks on police across the nation.
The Dallas shooter was identified as 25-year-old Micah Xavier Johnson of Mesquite, Texas, a black man who served in the U.S. Army Reserve and did a tour in Afghanistan. Bomb-making materials and an arsenal of weapons and ammunition were found at the man's home.
Johnson is said to have told police he was not part of any group which is essentially worthless as evidence with respect to the the Black Lives Matter movement. The movement is fairly amorphous and decentralized. Anyone can claim to be or not be a member of the movement.
Johnson, who has been found in a photo posing in a dashiki with a raised arm Black Power salute, said he was upset at the recent deaths of black men at the hands of police.
Dallas police chief David Brown said Johnson told police he "wanted to kill white people, especially white officers."
Johnson had been a member of the Houston chapter of the New Black Panther Party for six months some years ago, Breitbart Texas reports, citing KPRC NBC2. The source of the membership information was a man called Quanell X who said Johnson left the organization because he would not respect the chain of command. Breitbart posted a photo of what it claimed was Johnson at a New Black Panther armed march.
Of course former Justice Department civil rights division lawyer J. Christian Adams warned the Obama administration years ago about the real danger posed by the New Black Panther Party and was ignored.
The episode in Dallas came to an explosive ending early Friday. In a wonderful law enforcement innovation, Dallas police used a robot to deliver a bomb that blew Johnson to bits.
Something called the Black Power Political Organization reportedly claimed responsibility for the Dallas massacre. On its now-offline Facebook page stated, "More Will Be Assassinated In The Coming Days! Do You Like The Work Of Our Assassins? Get Your Own Sniper.”
Whether BPPO is a real group isn't yet clear. It doesn't appear to have been incorporated anywhere. Its Facebook page has been taken down. The page referenced various black power groups such as the New Black Panther Party and the Huey P. Newton Gun Club. Something called the Black People Protection Agency, also allegedly known as Black Knights, was referred to on BPPO's Facebook page. BPPA's status is similarly murky.
BPPO's page did list contact information in the form of a telephone number with an 876 area code, which corresponds to the Caribbean nation of Jamaica. That number also appears on a funding page for something called the Black Men Entrepreneurship Foundation. At time of writing BMEF had an active Facebook page. That organization's status is also unclear.
The Left is desperate to protect Black Lives Matter, which has been officially endorsed by the Democratic National Committee. Prominent left-wingers are publicly scratching their heads wondering what possibly could have motivated the Dallas attack even though Micah X. Johnson spelled out his anti-white, anti-cop animus in an abundantly clear fashion to police.
During a press conference in Poland, a befuddled President Obama pretended to struggle to understand why the Dallas shooter did what he did. "I think it is very hard to untangle the motives of this shooter. I'll leave that to psychologists and people who study these kinds of incidents."
"I think the danger is that we somehow suggest the act of a troubled individual speaks to some larger political statement across the country," Obama said.
Democrat presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton blamed white people. "White Americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day," she tweeted Friday.
Later the same day Clinton continued her delusional rant in a CNN interview.
"I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American families who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have 'The Talk,' about how to really protect themselves [from police], when they're the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with police."
"I'm going to be talking to white people. We're the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries coming from our African-American fellow citizens."
Listening to Black Lives Matters supporters who want to kill white people and police is exactly the kind of useless, possibly counterproductive remedy Hillary Clinton would propose.
But pandering is a principal focus of the Left nowadays, the real-world consequences be damned.

Dallas shooting: Gunman acted alone, officials say
Micah Johnson, killed after a standoff with police, believed to be lone shooter

An army veteran with a personal arsenal amassed at his home is believed to be the lone gunman responsible for the fatal sniper shooting of five police officers in Dallas Thursday night.
Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, died following a standoff with police during which he said he "wanted to kill white people, especially white police officers," police Chief David Brown told reporters in the aftermath of the deadly rampage. Johnson was killed by a robot-delivered bomb.

  • Dallas, Louisiana, Minnesota incidents reveal who America's gun rights are for, critics say
  • A search of his home Friday turned up bomb-making materials, firearms, ammunition and a "journal of combat tactics," the Dallas police said in a statement.
    Johnson was a private first class from the Dallas suburb of Mesquite with a specialty in carpentry and masonry. He was also an army reservist who did one tour in Afghanistan from November 2013 to July 2014, the military said.
    Police said Johnson had no criminal record, and investigators were analyzing the information contained in the journal.
    Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said late Friday afternoon that Johnson acted alone. Rawlings declared that the city was safe and "we can move on to healing." He said the gunman wore a protective vest and used an AR-15 rifle, a weapon similar to the one fired last month in the attack on an Orlando, Fla., nightclub that killed 49 people. 

    Dallas mayor updates on shooting2:22
    When the gunfire began, the mayor said, about 20 people in the crowd were carrying rifles and wearing protective equipment. That raised early concerns that they might have been involved. But after conducting interviews, investigators concluded all the shots came from the same attacker.
    Dallas police said at least 12 officers discharged their duty weapons.
    "There was confusion with everybody running around, but this was a mobile shooter that had written manifestos on how to shoot and move, shoot and move, and he did that," the mayor said. "He did his damage, but we did … damage to him as well." 
    Seven officers and two civilians were also wounded as a result of the sniper fire.
    During the standoff that followed, Johnson told police he was upset at white people, and claimed to have planted explosives in the area, according to Brown. He also told officers he was angry about the recent spate of police shootings.
    He died when police sent in a robot armed with an explosive, Brown said.
    "Other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger," Brown told reporters.
    Rawlings said earlier that police swept the area after the standoff ended and found no explosives.
    Authorities initially blamed multiple snipers for Thursday's attack, and at one point said three suspects were in custody. But by Friday afternoon, all attention focused on Johnson.
    'Ambush style' attack
    Gunshots erupted around 8:45 p.m. CT Thursday while hundreds of people were gathered to protest fatal police shootings this week in Baton Rouge, La.,  and St. Paul, Mann.
    Brown told reporters earlier that the shots were fired "ambush style" on police "to injure and kill as many officers as they could."
    Video footage from the Dallas scene showed protesters were marching along a street in downtown, just under a kilometre from city hall, when shots were fired and the crowd scattered, seeking cover.
    The search for the attackers stretched throughout downtown, an area of hotels, restaurants, businesses and some residential apartments. The area is only a few blocks away from Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.
    'Everyone just started running'
    The scene was chaotic, with helicopters hovering overhead and officers with automatic rifles on the street corners.
    "Everyone just started running," Devante Odom, 21, told the Dallas Morning News. "We lost touch with two of our friends just trying to get out of there.
    Carlos Harris, who lives downtown, told the newspaper that the shooting was "strategic. It was tap, tap pause. Tap, tap pause," he said.
    Obama: 'No possible justification'
    U.S. President Barack Obama said early Friday that America is "horrified" over the shootings.
    Speaking from Warsaw, where he's meeting with leaders of the European Union and attending a NATO summit, Obama said justice will be done and he's asking all Americans to pray for the fallen officers and their families.

    U.S. attorney general on Dallas attack1:34
    Attorney General Loretta Lynch also condemned the killings, and called on Americans not to accept the recent violence as "the new normal."
    "Turn to each other, not against," Lynch said during a brief news conference, adding lawmakers must take a "hard look" at gun laws.
    Protests were held in several other cities across the country Thursday night after a Minnesota officer on Wednesday fatally shot Philando Castile while he was in a car with a woman and a child.
    The aftermath of the shooting was live streamed in a widely shared Facebook video. A day earlier, Alton Sterling was shot in Louisiana after being pinned to the pavement by two white officers. That, too, was captured on a cellphone video.
    'Our hearts are broken'
    Four of the officers who were killed were with the Dallas Police Department, a spokesman said. One was a Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) officer. The agency said in a statement that 43-year-old Brent Thompson was the first DART officer killed in the line of duty since the agency formed a police department in 1989.
    "Our hearts are broken," the statement said.

  • One of the wounded civilians was Shetamia Taylor, 37, according to her sister, Theresa Williams.

    Williams told The Associated Press her sister was at the protests with her four sons, ages 12 to 17.
    When the shooting began, Taylor threw herself over her sons, and was shot in the right calf, Williams said, adding Taylor was undergoing surgery early Friday.
    Demonstrations were once again held in several U.S. cities Friday in the aftermath of the Dallas shootings as well as of Castile and Sterling. The biggest was in Atlanta, where thousands of people marched through downtown Friday evening, bringing traffic to a standstill in a protest that seemed peaceful. Other marches, sit-ins and vigils were held in Boston, Denver, Pittsburgh and in Los Angeles, led by rappers Snoop Dogg and The Game.

    U.S. Military Veteran Believed to Be Lone Gunman in Dallas Police Ambush
    Five police officers shot dead in attack, seven officers and two civilians wounded
    By Reuters
    July 8, 2016
    DALLAS (Reuters) – A black U.S. military veteran of the Afghan war who said he wanted to “kill white people” apparently acted alone in a sniper attack that killed five police officers at a protest in Dallas decrying police shootings of black men, officials said on Friday.
    Seven other police officers and two civilians were wounded in the ambush in downtown Dallas on Thursday night, officials said. Police killed the gunman, identified by authorities as 25-year-old Micah Johnson, with a bomb-carrying robot after cornering him in a parking garage, ending an hours-long standoff.
    A search of Johnson’s home in the nearby suburb of Mesquite found “bomb-making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics,” Dallas police said in a report on Friday. Police said Johnson had no previous criminal history.
    On Thursday night, the sound of gunfire sent a panicked crowd of hundreds of protesters screaming and running for their lives near the end of an otherwise peaceful march to protest police killings of two black men this week in Minnesota and Louisiana. Police officers patrolling the Dallas demonstration at the time believed they were under attack by several gunmen.
    By late afternoon on Friday, however, investigators had concluded that Johnson, armed with a rifle, was the lone gunman.
    “At this time, there appears to have been one gunman, with no known links to or inspiration from any international terrorist organization,” U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told reporters in New York.
    At a news conference in Dallas, the city’s mayor, Michael Rawlings, said the shooting “came from one building at different levels from this suspect.”
    Three other people were detained by police, but authorities have not publicly linked them to the shootings. Still, officials said they were looking for evidence of any possible co-conspirators.
    The ambush marked the highest death toll for U.S. police in the line duty from a single event since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
    GUNMAN ANGRY ABOUT POLICE KILLINGS
    The attack was certain to complicate rising tensions between minority communities and law enforcement following a string of high-profile killings of unarmed black men at the hands of police across the country over the past two years, giving rise to the Black Lives Matter protest movement.
    The latest violence, which occurred as one such rally was coming to a quiet end, was especially devastating for the people of Dallas, a city that struggled for decades to heal from the scars left by the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, blocks away in Dealey Plaza.
    Dallas Police Chief David Brown called Thursday’s incident “a well-planned, well-thought-out, evil tragedy.” He added, “We are determined to not let this person steal this democracy from us.”
    During lengthy negotiations with police, the gunman told police he was angry about the Louisiana and Minnesota killings, Brown told reporters.
    “The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” said Brown, who is African-American.
    Some details began to emerge about Johnson. He posted a rant against white people on a black nationalist Facebook group called Black Panther Party Mississippi last Saturday, denouncing the lynching and brutalizing of black people.
    “Why do so many whites (not all) enjoy killing and participating in the death of innocent beings,” Johnson wrote in his Facebook post above a graphic video of people participating in a whale-killing, comparing it to the treatment of black people in the United States.
    In what appeared to be his own Facebook page, Johnson was portrayed as a black nationalist, with images of Black Power and the red, black and green flag sometimes known as the Black Liberation flag. His profile photo showed him with his clenched fist in the air in the familiar Black Power salute.
    The U.S. Army said Johnson, 25, had served as a private first class in the Army Reserve and was deployed to Afghanistan from November 2013 to July 2014. It said Johnson served from March 2009 to April 2015 and was a carpentry and masonry specialist with the 420th Engineering Brigade based in Texas.
    “HEARTACHE AND DEVASTATION”
    Details on how the shootings unfolded remained unclear. Video of the attack taken by a witness shows a man carrying an assault-style weapon and large amounts of ammunition.
    The video shows the gunman crouching at ground level and charging at and then shooting another person who appeared to be wearing a uniform. That person then collapsed to the ground.
    Reuters could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the video.
    The Rev. Jeff Hood, an organizer of Thursday night’s protest, said he had been chatting with some of the police officers on the street when gunfire erupted.
    “I saw what I believe were two police officers that went down. I didn’t know what to do,” Hood told reporters on Friday. “If we continue to turn to violence, we are going to continue to see heartache and devastation.”
    President Barack Obama, in Poland for a NATO summit, called the Dallas shootings “a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement.” Obama, who has been stymied by the Republican-led Congress in his bid for new gun control laws, added, “We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons unfortunately it makes attacks like these more deadly.”
    As Dallas reeled from a night of carnage, there was a flurry of other shootings directed at police across the country.
    A man in Tennessee opened fire on a highway, killing a woman and grazing a police officer with a bullet on Thursday, because he was troubled by incidents involving black people and law enforcement, authorities said on Friday. Police officers also were ambushed and wounded in shootings in Missouri and Georgia on Friday.
    Largely peaceful protests unfolded around the United States after the police shooting of Philando Castile, a 32-year-old black man, on Wednesday, during a traffic stop near St. Paul, Minnesota. A day earlier, police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, shot dead Alton Sterling, 37, while responding to a call alleging he had threatened someone with a gun.
    Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the presumptive Democratic and Republican U.S. presidential nominees, respectively, canceled their campaign events for Friday following the attack.
