While there is no information on the identities of the three dead shot to death in Wisconsin last night, let’s speculate that they are white. The shooter is positively identified as black.
Now, assuming the victims are white, how much media coverage of black violence and racism toward whites do you think the story will get?
KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. – Three people were shot and killed at Great Lakes Dragaway in Paris, Wisconsin, Sunday evening, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department.
The sheriff’s department responded to the shots fired call at the track on Highway KR at 6:59 p.m., during an event called “Larry’s Fun Fest.” Sheriff David Beth held a press conference Sunday night confirming that three male victims were fatally shot at the event.
He said the three victims were standing by a food vendor of some sort and the suspect walked up and shot them “point blank.” Beth said two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene, and a third was brought to the hospital and died while en route.
Beth said friends of the victims had “no idea” why they were shot. He said initial reports were that the victims were from Aurora, Ill.
Beth said they do not have a suspect in custody. The suspect is described as a black man with blue jean shorts, a black hoodie, in his mid-20s, with a black car. Beth said he did not know if the suspect was still on the scene or had left.
Investigators were on scene Sunday night trying to find out if there was any surveillance video and talking with witnesses, according to Beth.
Three dead compared to one dead in Charlottesville. Shouldn’t there be equal or greater coverage of shooting murders?
Watch how carefully local TV news covered the story.
And how about Black Lives Matter threatening to kill whites across the USA. More crickets.
