Why Did The Police Shooting of Michael Brown Receive National Attention While The Police Shooting of Samantha Ramsey Did Not?

Under The Radar Media

Victim: Samantha Rasey

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Age (at time of death): 19

Brief synopsis of incident: The victim was with friends and was shot multiple times and killed after a questionable incident with a White police officer who claimed to have feared for his life. Most people in the United States and much of the Western world have probably never even heard of the shooting death of Samantha Ramsey. You can read about the case here and view the picture of the scratch Officer Brockman received on his foot which made him fear for his life and the lives of others.

Victim: Michael Brown

Ethnicity: African-American

Age (at time of death): 18

Brief synopsis of incident: The victim was with a friend and was shot multiple and killed after a questionable encounter with a White police officer who claimed to have feared for his life. Most people in the Western world now know many details about the case, but for comparison's sake, you can read a timeline here.

A Google News search for "Samantha Ramsey," conducted on November 27, 2014 yielded only about 11,800 results. A Google News search for for "Michael Brown," conducted on November 27, 2014 yielded about 179,000,000 results, or just over 150% more online news coverage. The White House released a statement on behalf of President Obama himself over the shooting death of Michael Brown, but there was no statement by the White House for the shooting death of Samantha Ramsey.


Conclusion Obviously, there are problems with race, crime and police violence in America. However, due to the media's selective reporting, their decisions to highlight specific incidents while downplaying and/or ignoring other incidents only highlights a truly sinister bias. One should question the obvious disparity in the coverage between the two events and begin to question why the people who control the media do what they do.

Why? Because she was white, not a jew and not a threat. More economically disadvantaged white people are murdered by pigs than are "people of color". Untill we get the Nazi jews out of the mix: nothing will change. the "racial divide" is incited by the jew "entertainment" industry that vilifies people of color and certain religious groups in their "movies", they also censor and taint the "news" presented by their "mocking bird" influenced "talking heads". The real hate groups are the CIA, MOSSAD, AIPAC and all of the other well known "alphabet boys" seditious gangs and the brain washed, IGNORANT, followers who believe it "unpatriotic" or "anti-Semitic" to question their traitorous agendas.

I forgot to mention...all this talk going on about terrorist and ISIS but more Americans are being killed by their own cops than by terrorists, does reality get any stranger than this?

The main stream media is nothing more that a government tool only too ready to be used in order to manipulate public opinion. I never heard about the case of Samantha Ramsey's killing anywhere and to me this is just as shocking and outrageous as the brown case. The fact is that there is a seriouse problem in the United States with policing, I do not live in the US and as a black man I would be reluctant to visit as I would not want to risk the chance of coming to the notice of belligerent cop whilst minding my own business and being badly beaten or killed for it. This is the kind of knock on effect that these instances have on outsiders looking in and it is not good. The media has a responsibility to report all police killings wether the victim is black or not. The tragic case of Samantha Ramsey probably wasn't highlighted because the killing of an unarmed 19 year old girl under such circumstances would probably cause white America to riot and then the black community won't look so bad for doing the same thing. Most American people are good folk but the people who run America are Devils and they and everyone else in the world know it. Bring these people to justice before it's too late.

Michael Brown's case is used to promote hatred while Samantha Ramsey's shooting does not serve that purpose.
