Famous Last Words: “I’m not black enough to be shot”

Posted: January 29, 2022 by datechguy in crime, culture

Apparently the false media message that the only reason why black felons wielding weapons are shot by police is due to their race was taken to heart by a knife wielding man in New Jersey:

When one of the officers said, “I don’t want to shoot you,” Ackley showed a high level of political awareness by responding, “I’m not black enough to be shot?”

Life is often a journey toward knowledge and one of the final acts of Daniel Ackley thirty three years of life was the discovery that this information that the media imparted to him concerning white privilege and police was in fact in error:

Within 15 seconds, one of the officers fires his service weapon and Ackley stumbles to the ground, apparently struck by a bullet and stays seated, raising his now empty hands.

He would be life flighted to a hospital but pronounced dead on arrival clearing demonstrating that there is less to white privilege then meets the eye.

I’ll give the last word to Stacy McCain who notes that this police shooting is even less newsworthy nationally then the hundreds of death from black on black shooting in Chicago, LA or Baltimore:

Nobody looted Best Buy. No statues were toppled. White guys get shot by cops all the time, and CNN never seems to notice.

If only he identified as a black woman, than CNN could have gone with: “Police shoot potential Biden SCOTUS nominee”.

Update: Alas this was not the case so DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of media outrage applies:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

Now I’m an old fashioned guy who thinks that race doesn’t matter when you’ve got a guy waving a giant knife around threatening people and that shooting such a person (because crazy people are dangerous) is justified in such a case.

But that’s playing by the old rules that our friends on the left no longer apply.
