Austin Mass Shooting: Media Won’t Describe Suspect Because ‘Stereotypes’

Posted on | June 12, 2021 | Comments Off on Austin Mass Shooting: Media Won’t Describe Suspect Because ‘Stereotypes’

You might think that when 13 people are shot in downtown Austin, and the gunman is still at large, that it would be a public service to describe this murderous maniac. But you’re not “woke” enough:

Police have only released a vague description of the suspected shooter as of Saturday morning. The Austin American-Statesman is not including the description as it is too vague at this time to be useful in identifying the shooter and such publication could be harmful in perpetuating stereotypes and potentially put innocent individuals at risk.

Oh, if it was a right-wing white supremacist Trump voter who had committed this atrocity, you bet the media would have no qualms identifying the suspect, “perpetuating stereotypes” or not. Because the “woke” media have made themselves utterly useless as a source of facts, we must turn to Breitbart for the relevant information:

A statement from the Austin Police Department states . . . “It is unknown if there is one, or multiple suspects involved. There is one suspect described as a black male, with dread locks, wearing a black shirt and a skinny build.” . . . The shooting follows massive cuts in police funding by the Austin City Council. The council cut $150 million from the police budget . . .

Is it any wonder why people hate the “fake news” media?

UPDATE: One suspect is reportedly in custody, but another is still at large. Police are calling it an “isolated incident” — apparently, two guys with a beef started shooting at each other, and all the wounded victims were innocent bystanders in the crowded nightclub district.
