In one of their Tuesday editorials, The Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote about the shooting of Daunte Wright in the Minnesota town of Brooklyn Center. They seemed to be on the right track in their insistence for due process both for Wright and for the police officer who, according to body camera video and audio, fatally shot him.
Sadly, the editors blew up their thesis with this, regarding post-shooting events:
On Monday night protesters looted businesses….
Accuracy, and truth, die at the hands of political correctness.
Protesters don’t loot. Criminals loot.
Protesters don’t riot. Rioters riot.
It’s…dismaying…to see the Newspeak dictionary spread so far.
