Media painted police as murderers by manipulating dash cam footage: In July of last year, we published the story of an officer involved shooting in Chicago. Harith Augustus was shot and killed while trying to flee. It was not the act of fleeing that resulted in his death. It was the fact that he was known to be armed and the officers involved believed he was attempting to draw his weapon.
Now, more than a year later, a collaborative group is trying to create a narrative that paints the Chicago Police Department as liars and its officers as racists and murderers.
Just how might they be able to prove this you ask. They can’t.
