Good flow, sad story.

I was not looking forward to this one but felt it needed to be heard. I’m glad I listened, though the story is frustrating and sad and makes you feel that justice has not been served. Which is the point.

Liberal media bias

Do not waste your time unless you enjoy liberal leaning media BS. Their disdain for the police and ability to paint people as angels is par for the course for today’s s media. Example: When detailing the couples activities the day of the shooting, “they smoked a joint and then went to pick up her daughter” ...REALLY?! So, she was such a great mother she allowed her high boyfriend to drive with her daughter in the car.

This doesn’t excuse the actions of the police officer and nobody deserved to fie over it, but do not paint them in an angelic light.
