With the discussion of Donald Trump and his defense of white nationalism, our people are focusing on neo-nazis, the KKK and alt-right but the real face of white nationalism are right in front of us from the politicians that set policies to criminalize and occupy black communities, to the police who murder us in the streets, and to the media who depict us as criminals and subhuman.
Lisa Gartner (@lisagartner) and Zachary T. Sampson (@zackthompson) of the Tampa Bay Times @tampabaytimes wrote an article entitled “Wrong Way: At 15 Isaiah Battle was the County’s No. 1 car thief. He had every reason to stop.”
It is a defamatory article centered around a 16-year-old child, Isaiah whose sister, Dominique Battle, was drowned to death after being chased by the Pinellas County Sheriff's office. Over 19 Pinellas county sheriff deputies watched them drown, all caught on video while deputies laughed and joked.
The Tampa Bay Times called Isaiah the “No. 1 car thief” in Pinellas County despite the fact that these were arrests not convictions. Theft is a legal conclusion that a judge or jury makes, everyone has a presumption of innocent until proven guilty, there statements are blatant libel.
