When fleeing suspect kill
In the past week, we have seen two people killed by suspects fleeing from the police in their car. In both instances, the perp is a black male and the victim is white. We also documented three cases from late 2014. In each case the perp is black and the victim is white.
If a white police officer kills a violent fleeing suspect, it is a national news story for weeks. If a black suspect murders an innocent white person, it is a non-story. The media says “wrong place at the wrong time.”
