Media bias, clear as day

We all remember 17 yr old Kyle Rittenhouse who shot three white men in self defense. CNN called him a white supremist, his mug shot was plastered all over the news

Fast forward to last week, 2 black 17 yr olds shoot 22 people in Kansas and the news won't publish their information because they are minors. CNN has not reported anything on the story in 2 days.
If it were not for social media and dozens of photos from cel phones of the shooting, we would nt know anything about the shooters. A thirst teen with a hand gun was released after it was determined he did not fire his gun. So much for laws making it illegal for teens to have hand guns.



"he is going to start WW3!!!!"

Asserting that there is equivalency between the two events is not only simplistic, it's ludicrous.

But apparently it’s okay for teens to have semiautomatic assault rifles (and carry them past police on his way to an area of agitated protest)?

Your …ummm…media bias is showing.

Actually, probably an honest error on your part - I don’t know what the time zones are like on your planet.

Sure.

Hmmm. How’d his name get out there?

Oh yeah! He went there with a reporter from the Daily Caller with the stated intention of shooting people, rationalizing attempted murder as defense of local businesses.

Probably more of a local story, considering this happens so frequently in this country:

Quote

Two police officers and a firefighter are dead and other officers were injured after responding to a domestic incident Sunday in Burnsville, Minnesota, the state’s governor said.

“Horrific news from Burnsville. While responding to a call of a family in danger, two police officers and one firefighter lost their lives, and other officers were injured,” Gov. Tim Walz posted online.

“We must never take for granted the bravery and sacrifices our police officers and first responders make every day."

They were shot, of course. Domestic violence incident. Incredibly, they haven't gotten around to posting a mug shot of the perp yet.

Probably trying to cover it up. RollingEyesSmiley5

Mr645 - there is a LOT of media bias. You should find any number of clearer examples if you to make your case.

BTW, all the conclusions you appear to have jumped to were wrong.

Quote

Two adults have been arrested in connection with the mass shooting that erupted following a dispute at the Chiefs' Super Bowl parade last week, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Dominic Miller and Lyndell Mays each face charges of second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said, noting that paradegoer Lisa Lopez-Galvan was allegedly fatally shot by a bullet from Miller's gun.

So, what happened?

Quote

Mays told police "that he drew a gun first, in a crowd of people with kids, picked one of the individuals in the group [he was arguing with] at random, and started shooting…”

Bad enough, but then…

Quote

Miller said after he heard gunshots and saw a man shooting at him, he returned fire, according to the probable cause statement. Miller said he estimated he fired four to five shots, according to court documents.

In a crowd. A very gunner thing to do. One of these wild shots happened to hit and kill Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a beloved local DJ.

Seems to me if he was in Florida, he’d have a good defense of Stand Your Ground, huh?

But…but…I thought they were kids!

Quote

Two juvenile suspects were taken into custody last week on gun-related charges and resisting arrest, officials said.

They’re not the murderers, apparently.

What a gunner fustercluck.
