OWENS: The Cops Aren’t Racist, But The Journalists Sure Are

From the very beginning of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, self-righteous, fact-challenged,  and subject matter-illiterate journalists have been crafting a narrative that law enforcement officers look at deadly force situations through the lens of race. That fevered—and blatantly incorrect—bit of “conventional wisdom” among the media was at its most obvious when the media parroted the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie crafted by a criminal who already had warrants out for his arrest for lying to police.

That institutional bias doesn’t still just exist; it seems to be getting much worse. The bias is blatantly obvious in a recent Cincinnati Enquirer piece by Chris Graves. Graves’s bio says that she is, “Passionate about the future of news,” and that she thrives “on chaos with a purpose.”

The “chaos with a purpose” in her most recent article is a fact-free attempt to smear the Cincinnati Police Department as being racist. Let’s dissect her assumptions and failures as she asserts that Cincinnati Police had racial biases in how they handled two separate instances of police dealing with men armed with fake handguns last week.
