I lose hope when, on one hand, the South Carolina F.O.P uses the term, "professional race agitators" in a press release. As a former dues-paying member, I will gladly offer my editing service gratis to any FOP newsletter. Seriously. If your goal is P.R. and you're talking about "the recent tragedy." Do not use the term "professional race agitators" in the same press release. Just don't. Trust me on this one. (Al Baker's story in the Times.)
On the other hand, people in Baltimore are protesting a man who remains in a coma after being injured during an arrest. Meanwhile, Baltimore being Baltimore, police shot somebody near the protest who had a loaded gun (the fourth BPD-involved shooting in 2015). And one group of anti-police protesters is idiotic enough to ask in a tweet, "how could [police] know it was loaded?"
See, when police have to explain why they shot a criminal with a loaded gun, it doesn't make you want to engage. It makes you want to go to local F.O.P. bar, drink too much, and talk about "professional race agitators."
[Meanwhile, just FYI, 11 people were shot in the last 24 hours in NYC.]
