Media Misrepresents Ferguson Riots, Fuels Hatred (2)

The lamestream media told you:

"'I've invested everything I got into this place. There's no way I'm leaving,' said Natalie DuBois, 32, who opened her Ferguson, Mo., bakery, Natalie's Cakes and More, just a couple of months before a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teen and turned this town into a tinderbox." --USA Today, 11/28/14

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

This story could just as easily say: "I've invested everything I got into this place. There's no way I'm leaving," said Natalie DuBois, 32, who opened her bakery, Natalie's Cakes and More, just a couple of months before a black robbery suspect beat a police officer and attempted to arm himself with the police officer's high-capacity semiautomatic handgun. The suspect was shot and killed before he could complete the felony, which led blacks in the town to riot and destroy numerous local businesses, including DuBois' bakery."

"Although race-based violence was forecast by many 'community organizers,' the white state governor refused to dispatch adequate law enforcement to quell angry mobs stirred up by inflammatory and misleading saturation news reports, now the subject of ongoing investigations. Other local business owners have expressed uncertainty as to whether they will reopen in the troubled mostly black area, with such failure to protect private property."

No sane business owner will be rebuilding anything there.

Let the looting animals enjoy their charred wasteland.
