Beyond The Badge: Mainstream Media’s Narrative About Police Shootings

BTB #1This week on Beyond The Badge, Vincent Hill discusses two officers killed in Brookhaven, MS Saturday during a shootout with a convicted felon who was under house arrest as well as newly released body cam of an officer involved shooting in Baltimore last week. In Baltimore, the suspect shot at officers ten times, striking one officer three times. Luckily, his vest took two of the bullets but he was shot in the elbow.

In both cases, Vincent talks about the lack of coverage because it doesn’t fit the narrative. However, would the reporting of these two previously convicted been different if the officers were not shot even with shooting at police?
