Lying Socialist rag

Your social justice is going to far again. You keep repeating lies over and over. Police are the heroes. Only 19 unarmed criminals died last year The hands up don’t shoot is a lie. A thug who attacked a Middle East American store owner call police. Then when he was stopped on the street. He attacked the police officer. He outweighs, was taller and tried to get the officer weapon. When told to stop charge the officer. Get the facts right!! He was also seen on video a few days earlier knocking a old black man Down and stealing his backpack. But you make him out to be a poor innocent victim. He was a criminal violent low life thug.
