GREAT interview with the incomparable Dan Rather, a man who has seen a thing or two.

ďFor a long time, it just seemed the movement toward any progress on civil rights was so tiny as to be barely perceptible. It was more like a great amount of snow that moves along so slowly you donít even know itís moving.

But then thereís an avalanche.Ē


'One of The Low Points in American History': Dan Rather Goes Long on Our Defining Moment

In a wide-ranging interview, the legendary reporter gives a clinic on journalism, its intersection with politics, civil rights, and the future of American culture.

We need to end elective abortion because it hides a multitude of hate crime motivated killings. Itís genocide.

I want to see the conversation continue - I believe the Left and Right are banding together because black lives matter to us all.

❤️Because black lives matter all lives matter. Amen?❤️

He is older than some dirt roads, and free to say whatever the hell he wants.

And is a force to be reckoned with.

Guys! The Left and the Right have merging goals now!

The Left and Right want to bear arms. Left and Right want to save the children and are mostly done fighting.
Left and Right want better media content; want more fairness and transparency.
Left and Right oppose the KKK and call them terrorists!

Proof is always good,
but to me in this case,
it shouldn't matter.
The officer was charged, for shooting,  or behaving recklessly with his firearm.
The concern, for the courts,  was for the people in the other apartments.

Who were the people in the apartments?
Had they been investigated for alleged homicide,  or an alleged involvement with drugs?

Did one of the women in the other apartments have a boyfriend,  who was awakened by the noise,  and did he grab
his gun?

Did the people in the other apartments flee,
into their hallway during the commotion ?
Did these people react like anyone would have reacted when cops bust into your apartment ?

Like George Floyd,  it does not matter to me,  if the victim was an alleged criminal, or had ties with criminality.
They are the victim of poor judgment on the part of the police officers
They officer should be held accountable

If a drug dealer had entered her apartment and began firing as the officer did he would have been charged with murder
Knock or no knock guilty or not guilty
He killed her!!

I can't see her ( not complaining ).

Val, I agree. Blaming and shaming the victim of a senseless murder is like blaming a rape victim because she wore a certain outfit and got into some kind of trouble years ago.

I think it's been accepted Brianna was standing in the hallway when she was shot. it's been proved the main suspect the police were looking for was already found in a different house before Brianna's house was raided.


its been proved neither Brianna nor her boyfriend were involved with drugs (though she did go out with the main suspect briefly some years back)

it's been accepted Brianna's boyfriend fired one shot from the hallway allegedly hitting one officer in the leg, it is also alleged one the two officers who returned 40 shots hit their colleague in the leg by accident

I read a full fact check of this last night. I'll try find it.


I've been of the belief Brianna was shot while she slept since the story broke. these revelations came as a bit of a surprise to say the least

I'll try find the article


It should make little difference where the lady was when she was shot. The house was listed as a soft raid ( one which the police expected little to no trouble at)

Proof is in the investigation and body cams...The differences between the media story and the truth is just another ploy to stir racial tension in an election year... More proof is the absolute lack of media attention in 2019,  2018 and 2017 of this subject. Even more proof will the media dropping their supposed concern for poor white people and minorities in November after the election. None the less people will believe what ever fits their spoonfed narrative ...One thing I despise is arrogant white leftist "acting" like they care currently when they said nothing, did not protest or raise their commie fists for the last three years. It shows that hypocrites and true freedom loving Americans are the real warring tribes which has nothing to do with the racist use of color as a weapon against political opponents as they "claim' to stand for justice....Fuck black and white supremacists and their commie lackeys...
