WND's Flaherty Attacks Standard Police Procedure To Feed His Race-Baiting
Topic: WorldNetDaily

It seems that resident WorldNetDaily race-baiter Colin Flaherty believes that all blacks accused of "black mob violence" are, by definition, guilty of it, and that no police investigation is necessary.

That much is clear from Flaherty's Nov. 9 WND article, which begins:

City officials in Baltimore knew exactly what to do when a mob of black people beat John Mason almost to death.

They blamed the victim.

How did Flaherty reach this conclusion? He quotes a Baltimore police spokesperson as saying, “At this point, it’s unclear what the motive was. ... “We’re looking at a variety of possibilities. One of them is an obvious robbery. We’re also looking at the background of the victim, trying to see if there are any disputes that might have resulted in this.”

But that's not "blaming the victim" -- that's called investigating a crime. If you have a crime in which the motive is not obvious, as appears to be the case here, you investigate to find out what happened. At no point did the police spokesperson blame the victim -- he simply expressed a desire to find out the circumstances of the crime, which includes investigating any possible connections between the victim and the perpetrator. That's standard police procedure.

But Flaherty apparently doesn't want any investigation. The perpetrators were black, and that's all he needs to convict.
