    Kansas cops fatally shoot unarmed teen 16 times, media and DoJ silent
    http://americanthinker.com/blog/2014...#ixzz3BzqLEEUG

    You probably haven’t heard about the case of Joseph Jennings, the unarmed Ottawa, Kansas 18 year old who was shot 16 times by police on August 23. Eric Holder is not outraged, nor is Al Sharpton. The town of Ottawa has experienced no riots or even protest marches.

    After all, Jennings is only a Caucasian, and there is no profit to be had for the left in hyping an injustice done to a “white boy.”

    Here is Kansas City television station KCTV’s report on the shooting:



    ...The case is now in the hands of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, and the officers involved have been placed on administrative leave. I will not presume to know the facts of the case, or even to judge the police conduct (though I am worried by it and want a complete investigation). My point is that despite all the blather one hears about “white privilege” and “open season on black males” the fact is that a media and official double standard seems to exist when unarmed young males are gunned down by police, and the disadvantage is not against blacks.

    Jennings is guilty of being shot by police while being white.
    The price of freedom is something the protected will never know.

    It's sort of like curing someone's cancer by cutting off their head.

    Or throat,


    Or ...
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    If the police shoot you, your family can still make the life insurance claim.
