Headline in yesterday’s newspaper: “Man killed by Charlotte police had brain injury.”
This sort of thing is part of the subtle “War on Cops” campaign. It invokes sympathy for the victim while simultaneously making it seem like the cops did something wrong.
Riddle me this, Batman: How the hell was the cop supposed to know the guy had a brain injury?
News Flash: People with mental problems can and have killed people.
When such a person acts in a threatening manner, what’s a cop in such a high-adrenaline situation supposed to do? Ask the guy if he’s seeing a psychiatrist first before shooting to defend himself?
Anyone remember when mentally disturbed Eduardo Sencion walked into a Carson City iHOP and shot dead four National Guard members who were having breakfast with no warning whatsoever?
Disgraceful media reporting.

P.S. In a speech Tuesday, Phillipine President Rodrigo Duterte told U.S. President Barack Obama to “go to hell.” A sentiment shared by an awful lot of Americans.
Speaking of awful, what debate was the mainstream media watching Monday night that none of the rest of us saw?
Unhinged Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine was, in no particular order, rude, obnoxious, insulting, discourteous, bad-mannered, offensive, boorish, disrespectful, insufferable, detestable, unbearable, repugnant and, yes, deplorable.
But good luck finding such characterizations of Kaine’s meltdown in mainstream media headlines and reports. Disgraceful.

A reader wrote asking why, as reported in the Las Vegas Review-Journal yesterday, the NFL is looking for public investment in the new multi-purpose, domed Las Vegas stadium when, he says, it didn’t have any such requirement for the St. Louis Rams when they wanted to move back to Los Angeles.
The short answer is: Ask the NFL.
The long answer might be that while Los Angeles is a proven football market – having hosted two NFL teams in the past – Las Vegas is a new, emerging market with a population base significantly smaller than L.A. The NFL may be looking at public funding as an indicator that moving a franchise here will have sufficient public support.
Another reason could well be that the NFL has been decidedly cold toward the idea of locating a franchise in the world’s gaming capital and public financial support for the stadium might just be a spoon full of sugar to help the relocation medicine go down.
THIS JUST IN: The Indianapolis Colts have fired Antonio Cromartie – who last weekend not only refused to stand for the National Anthem, but took a knee and gave that Nazi-like closed-fist “black power” salute in game played in London. Karma! Click here for details.
Meanwhile, the NFL continues to suffer from the #BoycottNFL for failing to take action to remedy the Kaepernick Curse.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“Just when it seemed Donald Trump had been crowned the undisputed king of saying silly, self-destructive stuff in public, along came the venerable master of talking out of turn William Jefferson Clinton. He took a swipe at a certain Vermont senator who is currently trying to help his wife shore up her dismal numbers among millennials. And he made a candid, unsolicited critique of Obamacare – which he described in off-the-cuff remarks as ‘the craziest thing in the world,’ an early Christmas gift to Republicans who have been saying much the same thing for years.” –POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush
