Ahmaud Arbery: Propaganda Photos, §1983, & Cop Video: May 19, 2020

Hey folks

In today’s show on the Ahmaud Arbery case I touch on two closely related topics, and share a police body cam video with you.

First, we compare the photos preferentially used by the media in the Trayvon Martin case with the photos preferentially used by the media in this Arbery case.

Second, we look at 42 USC §1983 as a financial motive for such propaganda (e.g., ka-ching).

Third, we share a police body cam video of Ahmaud Arbery in an event independent of Arbery’s confrontation with the McMichaels.

Enjoy the show!

  2. The media did the same thing with respect to the Tamir Rice case in Cleveland, Ohio. The media repeatedly stated that Rice was a 12-year-old, but left out that at 5’7″ tall, 185 pounds, and wearing a puffy winter coat he could easily be mistaken for an adult. In fact, only one of three people who called police to report him pointing a gun at people in a city park mentioned that he was “probably” a juvenile. The photo that the media used was two years old and showed Rice making gang hand signs. When the media realized that the hand signs were related to gangs, they cropped the hands out of the photo. Another more current photo surfaced from social media showing Rice holding two guns. That photo was never shown on the mainstream media.
    A blue-ribbon commission composed of investigators from several agencies, CPD Internal Affairs & Training Divisions, concluded that the officers actions did not violate the law and they acted within the scope of their training and level of experience. A grand jury refused to indict the officers. An attorney representing Rice’s mother called the officers “murderers”. In response, the Cleveland Law Director wrote that Rice “was the architect of his own demise.” After complaints by Rice’s mother’s attorney and media furor, the Law Director was ordered by the Black Mayor to retract that statement.
    Despite multiple investigations and the grand jury clearing the officers, the Mayor authorized settling the case with Rice’s mother for $6 million.
