Charlottesvilles, VA paper attacks police over hunt for Jesse Matthew


The daily paper in Charlottesville, VA denounced the rapid capture of Jesse Matthew saying it had come at the “expense” of Virginia’s black community. To make the article even more outrageous, the paper did not publish it as commentary, but as an actual “news story.”

This is becoming increasingly common among far-left daily papers across America. Radical far-left agitation-propaganda pieces are published as “news.” The paper claims that a high profile manhunt for a black suspect makes black people feel bad. The paper seems to suggest that media and police should simply ignore an at large suspect, with a kidnap victim, if the suspect is black.

Over the past few years, numerous major media bosses have openly admitted to censoring black crime in their outlets. The issue with the Jesse Matthew case is this. When you have an at large suspect with a kidnap victim, it is too hard to censor the race of the perpetrator and victim. So the media is agonizing over the fact that the face of a black male perp and white female victim is all over the news.

Following the arrest on Wednesday of Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., some community leaders are asking if the pursuit of justice for Hannah Graham came at the expense of eroded trust among Central Virginia’s black residents.

Authorities last week identified Matthew, 32, as a person of interest in the case. Graham, an 18-year-old University of Virginia student, disappeared on Sept. 13. Authorities on Tuesday charged Matthew with abduction with intent to defile and on Wednesday night they announced Matthew had been apprehended in Galveston, Texas, some 1,300 miles from Charlottesville.

After Matthew was identified, men who happened to resemble Matthew, who is described as a 6-foot, 230 pound black male with dreadlocks, spoke out in their social circles, digitally on social media and to Charlottesville area news outlets, claiming racial profiling, both overt and covert.

On Wednesday morning, “I was in the barbershop, and it was said to me that there was a young man, a young African-American man, who didn’t fit the description other than having dreadlocks. However, he was pulled over and there were seven police cars surrounding him,” said Wes Bellamy, a community activist and high school teacher.

That someone might be stopped for questioning even though he is 40 pounds lighter and 4 inches shorter “and the only similarity is the hair … that is very disturbing,” Bellamy said. “As a community, we should not be so quick to jump the gun just because of preconceived notions.

“It’s just tough being an African-American male now,” Bellamy said, adding that he sees both sides of the issue. “As law enforcement, they can’t leave any stone unturned … but literally anyone can fit the description.”

Authorities said the notion that they’re stopping anyone and everyone who might match Matthew’s description is not true.
