If it’s not a white cisgender male committing mass murder, the far-left mainstream media could not care less.
Case in point: Raheem D. King is a 22-year-old black male who gunned down three people using an “assault rifle.”
The MSM shrugs.
King’s profile doesn’t fit the narrative.
If a white guy, using what liberals call an assault weapon, shot and killed 3 people on a bus, it would be huge news with tons of outrage and plenty of liberals calling the NRA terrorists. A black guy used what liberals call an assault weapon to murder 3 people (qualifies as a mass shooting) on a bus in Illinois and nobody on the left gives a crap. Have we reached the point were mass shootings are only bad when white people do them? It appears so.
The Rockford Register reports that a black man opened fire on a bus in Rockford, IL on Saturday, killing three people. The news has a little issue with the math:
Three people on a private, adult-themed charter bus were fatally shot early Saturday morning and the shooter, who also was aboard the bus, remains at large, Rockford police Chief Dan O’Shea said.
Police are looking for 22-year-old Raheem D. King, of Rockford, who is wanted on four counts of first-degree murder.
If he killed 3 people, why is is wanted on 4 counts of 1st degree murder? Also, what is an adult-themed party bus? Are there children-friendly party busses? Actually, I’m assuming this particular party involved strippers and/or prostitutes.
King used an assault rifle to open fire inside the bus while it was traveling in the area of Auburn Street and North Johnson Avenue, police said.
More from Rockford Register:
Shortly after the shooting, passengers fled on foot, according to police; it was not immediately clear how many people were in the party bus at the time.
The bus driver called 911 shortly before 3:30 a.m. after traveling more than a mile from the shooting site to the 400 block of North Springfield Avenue, O’Shea said. That’s where he met with police after parking the Distinguished Gentleman private entertainment bus in a fuel lane at the Mobil gas station, 453 N. Springfield Ave.
The three victims are adults, O’Shea said. He said they have not been identified, pending an investigation by the Winnebago County Coroner’s Office and family notification.
Coroner Bill Hintz declined to comment on details about the victims or the number of gunshot wounds each suffered.
All lives matter, unless a black man guns down innocent people. Then, those lives seem to matter far less.
