Sherelle Smith is the brother of the teenager who was shot and killed by police which led to 2 nights of violence.
“Burning down sh*t ain’t gonna help nothin’. You’re burnin’ down sh*t we need in our community Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down! We need our sh*t! We need our weave! I don’t wear it, but we need it!”
In this statement, the subject calls for a cessation of violence in her own neighborhood; calling for the violence to be done in the suburbs, instead.
When CNN aired a clip of it, they edited it to show the subject was calling for peace by removing a portion of what the subject said. This is a reminder of how analysis of statements can be impeded by deliberately deceptive editing.
Police continue to be targeted for violence in our nation, and CNN, along with main stream media, continue to deceive the American public while anti-police rhetoric from the political elite increases the danger to their lives.
