I saw this story on Facebook several times. I fact checked it and was quickly satisfied the story was accurate.

As far as media bias by ommission, that happens all the time. Fortunately, social media sometimes forces the corporate media to cover stories they don't particularly want to.

I remember the event as well. Fairly recent, if I recall correctly.

 

Google "alerts" can be set up to alert you when some "event" occurs...mention of a name (person, place, thing) or other search phrase comes up in a new webpage. I have kept track of a number of news issues over the years, as well as my employer, my own name, etc. Pretty handy.

Local affiliates in cities covered it - I haven't looked at national in awhile, so I will just have to take your word on it from your links - But if we are talking about the same incident - don't think it was a "Proud Boy" as your title of this thread indicates.

 

SO SAD !!! - doesn't sound like a racial thing since he had been a long time neighbor and evidently the father had socialized with him in the last few days.

 

Sounds like a mental health problem from the way the father described some of this man's (leading up to the shooting) actions.  Paranoia and looking kind of weird.  Could have a connection to perhaps an addiction.

 

If it was a mental health issue then it is probably being covered up media-wise by the mental health policy makers - don't want to give a bad rap.

By what stretch of the imagination wasn't "Central Park Karen" a mental health issue?  The most Liberally (pun intended) advertised nothingburger ever!
