There is a story out of Salt Lake City that has largely been under the radar. A 20-year-old white male, who was likely unarmed, was killed by a black police officer after he failed to heed the officer’s warnings and reportedly reached toward his pants. It was later learned that the victim,…

Ferguson Riots - On August 9, Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was killed by a police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri. Eyewitnesses to the shooting report that Brown was killed while attempting to surrender, but police say that Brown assaulted the officer before the shooting.
The incident provoked immediate anger and frustration in the community and around the country. The killing of Eric Garner, also an unarmed black man, by New York City police last month revived a public conversation about the history of police violence against black men, and the killing of Brown has inflamed it.
Ferguson Riots - Brown and the officer got into a verbal confrontation, and the officer attempted to put Brown in the police car. When Brown began to flee, with his hands in the air, she says, the officer got out of the car and started shooting at Brown.

Reporters in Gaza have a difficult time reporting the truth about Hamas’s disregard for civilian live. They face intense scrutiny and often put their lives in danger if they reveal how the Palestinian terror organization routinely uses human shields against Israel.
This is precisely why the IRS and other department within the Obama executive branch engage in coverups of their activity. The more we dig, the more illegal activity we find, and it’s clear that it’s a centralized, ideology-driven attack on those who think differently than the President.
The Lid has spent a little time collecting some information about 20 times Hamas has used civilians as human shields (The first ten are here, the second ten are here) Here are a few examples:
On July 15th Washington Post correspondent William Booth, reporting from Gaza, wrote:
At the Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, crowds gathered to throw shoes and eggs at the Palestinian Authority’s health minister, who represents the crumbling “unity government” in the West Bank city of Ramallah. The minister was turned away before he reached the hospital, which has become a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices.
There are also reports of Hamas using reporters as human shields. For example, the Japanese daily Mainichi’s correspondent in Gaza reported on Monday:
Hamas criticizes that “Israel massacres civilians”. On the other hand, it tries to use evacuating civilians and journalists by stopping them and turning them into “human shields”, counteracting thoroughly with its guerrilla tactics…
Hamas’s “Human Shield” strategy is also aimed at foreign journalists…
