Skip to comments.Suspect in Boise Stabbing Spree Doesn't Quite Match Media's Narrative

(snip) --- A horrific stabbing spree at a Boise, Idaho, apartment complex last night left nine people injured, including six children. Local media reports state that four of the victims have life-threatening injuries.
The national media quickly seized on the fact that the apartment complex was known to house refugees and that some of the victims themselves were apparently refugees.
Despite the fact that the 30-year-old male suspect was arrested last night at 8:50 p.m. and his arrest record and mugshot were posted on the Ada County Sheriff's website at 3:46 this morning, none of the articles identified the suspect.
CNN left the suspect's identity out, too, while pushing the refugee status of the victims:

A quick internet search shows a series of arrests and charges for Kinner in a number of states, including apparently being shot by a homeowner during a burglary, but nothing to indicate any anti-immigrant animus or bias, just a career criminal.

The MSMLSD bunch always come out with that white/conservative/Republican/NRA member before finding out the real facts; then maybe or maybe not they’ll post a retraction in the lower left hand corner of the last page or hide it somewhere in the narrative.

Note: African American
He’s a white African American.
This is strange - this guy Timmy Earl Kinner is hanging around an apartment complex populated by “refugees” and gets a bug up his you-know-what so he starts knifing several people, resulting in 15 felony charges this is a strange report.
I was going to say rough, but that doesn’t do him justice......shiver me some timbers.
It’s as though the MSM is wishing to finally get a conservative white Trump supporter committing a heinous crime like this...and they fail again. Pitiful.
They don’t even try to hide their bias. Dan Rather making up bad news about his opposition on the fly.
“Note: African American”

The fifth-column leftist media ‘reporting’ is part of the crime.
“Motel, money, murder, madness”
The media can just say he ‘identifies’ as a white male Republican who is supported by thr NRA. That’s near enough the truth for CNN.
Don’t let the deep tan fool you. This man is the poster child for white supremacists!
America’s Public Enemy #1 says: “Lying by omission is our specialty!”
Looks like a real nice guy, just the kind you wished you daughter would date/S
I thought at first he had tear tattoos near the bottom of his left eye, but it actually looks like an “M”.
