    American Thinker ^ | May 12, 2015 | Colin Flaherty
    Before Jaquise Lewis lost his life defending his friends from an act of racist white mob violence, he was universally loved and admired. Fun to be around, said one relative. Never got into any trouble, his aunt remembered. One after another, they lined up to tell the Albuquerque reporters the story of how Jaquise was in the wrong place at the wrong time. snip Six other people were shot, said another reporter at KOB. And understandably people were upset. The sanctification continued with a report from the scene of the memorial: Jaquise was well loved, said the somber reporter Ryan...

    Page Croyder, formerly of Baltimore States Attorneys Office, has a critical take on the charges thrown at the six city police officers. According to Page, States Attorney Marilyn Mosby can herself be charged for an illegal arrest. The six Baltimore officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray are (top row from left) Caesar Goodson Jr., Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and (bottom row from left) William Porter, Brian Rice and Alicia White.

    What they found was that much of the activity was coming from well outside of Baltimore, in some cases from Russia, China, India and the Middle East. "I just killed a pig," wrote one tweet, showing a bloodied police officer slumped on the ground. Not only was the photo of an officer in South America, but the account sharing it was not in Baltimore. Another tweet, which appeared to be coming from the Baltimore police, asked, "Why are we even tweeting?" and suggested that the protesters couldn't read. It also referred to them with a racial slur.

"We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals -- primarily African-American, often poor -- in ways that have raised troubling questions. And it comes up, it seems like, once a week now, or once every couple weeks," Obama said, proclaiming that police brutality against blacks amounted to a "slow-rolling crisis." He added,...

    About one kilometer from place where he got picked up, the group of people that actually shot him stopped the ambulance on some improvised barricade, first shot the driver and then killed my friend in the back of the ambulance. They killed him little bit slower than driver, and more painfully, they used knives. We got there a bit later, too late. Now this story may sound confusing to you, you may say it happens in war but for 95% of folks at that time it was not war, it was something like violent rioting, and those 95% of folks...
