NYTimes Covers Police Brutality….If It Occurs 4000 Miles Away

Russians Take On Police

Russian Organizer Beaten

To find stories of police brutality worthy of front page coverage in the US, the Times must travel to Europe. Indicating an apparent lack of worthy stories stateside. Or perhaps it is a lack of worthy victims. The Russian campaign combating military police repression is something to be supported for sure. As is resistance to military police repression worldwide. The interesting thing here is how the Times and other so-called liberal pubs consistently look abroad to fulfill their liberal credential requirements while the poor and people of color in the US labor under worse repressive conditions in New York, Chicago, D.C. and Atlanta.

What’s wrong with our stories? Are the Russian state forces that much more uncivilized? Somehow I doubt it.
