Suffice to say, this is not the first time.
But it should make you wonder why this time, whether it's more or less than 1,756,342, it's getting this massive media attention.
To the think tank here at Falling Downs, it looks like a "public spectacle" that's been cooked up by various levels of government, with the full connivance of the usual social justice entrepreneurs like Reverend Al, et al.
And of course, the main stream media are all aboard, as they inevitably are in every government initiative designed to take your eye off the ball.
Here are just a few stories we're not seeing while we're focussed on this completely routine cop-killing that has mysteriously hogged the spotlight for months:
- looks like that Afghanistan war is not over after all!
- Israel just made apartheid official state policy
- the Iranian "enemy" is almost in from the cold
- Africa's biggest oil producer, biggest economy, most populous country, and biggest US ally, moves closer to being a failed state every day
Those are but four stories we're ignoring, and there are many more from Ukraine to Libya to the farthest reaches of the American Empire, that Americans ignore at their peril.
