Media has been lying about condition of West Point victim. He may be brain dead


We told that the black police chief insulted the victims and downplayed the crime. We told you how CBS Atlanta ran a hoax segment falsely portraying the attackers as a mixed race group. Now, the family of the victim says everyone is lying about his condition. The media has universally been lying when they claim he is in “fair condition.” Or when police chief Tim Brinkly insulting characterized his injuries as “got hurt.”

The US Marine that was brutally beaten solely, because of the color of his skin, may be forced to live out his days in a vegetative state. This according to his stepson Barry Reynolds.

From The Blaze…

As his stepson remains in a medically induced coma following a vicious parking lot beating, Barry Reynolds told TheBlaze doctors have said there’s a “possibility” he may be forced to live out his days in a vegetative state. That’s why, he said, it’s frustrating to read news reports indicating that his stepson is in “fair condition,” because the surgeon maintains his situation is still “critical.”

Reynolds also alleged that the media would be much more interested in getting to the truth of the story if the races were switched.

Ralph Weems IV, a former U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran, was savagely beatenoutside of a Huddle House in West Point, Mississippi, following some sort of altercation with a group of black men who had “gotten themselves into a frenzy” over the Ferguson shooting, Reynolds said.

Reynolds, who said he has raised Weems since he was only 8 years old, recounted the moments leading up to the brutal assault in an attempt to clear up what he described as unfounded speculation circulating on the Internet.

He said Weems had helped his friend, David Knighten, unload his U-Haul before they went to a Waffle House restaurant to eat. As they walked into the establishment, a black man told Knighten just outside that the restaurant wasn’t a safe place for whites because the people inside were angry over the Michael Brown shooting, according to Reynolds and past statements made by Knighten.

Reynolds, also a former Marine, said Weems continued into the restaurant ahead of his friend, possibly believing the man was a panhandler asking for money. As soon as he entered the Waffle House, he “started getting jeered,” the stepfather said. What is still unknown is how Weems responded to the alleged jeering.

The attackers didn’t disperse until they heard the sound of police sirens approaching, he added. Police found Weems unconscious in the parking lot with severe head injuries. Knighten also reportedly suffered “minor fractures and lacerations” when he tried to defend Weems.

Weems was airlifted and ultimately placed in a medically induced coma. Doctors also removed a sizable portion of his skull to relieve some of the brain swelling, Reynolds told TheBlaze.

“His vital signs are strong, so the chances of him dying are pretty slim,” he said. “But we don’t know what value or quality of life he will have.”

Though Weems’ story has received some national attention, Reynolds said “one painful truth” about news coverage in the U.S. is black-on-white violence doesn’t receive the same amount of coverage as white-on-black violence.

“This story would be everywhere if you just take it and flip it 180 degrees. The same story, word for word, except change the colors around,” he told TheBlaze.
