Yesterday we told you that the Twitter News summary of a man shot and killed by Minneapolis police failed to include one detail: Police body camera video that was released soon after the shooting shows that the suspect fired first.
But facts shmacts — Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is obviously going out of her way to spark more protests and outrage:
MPD is a joke, this isn’t transparency or accountability.
A man was killed, his family terrorized & robbed of a son and all they are left w/ is more questions than answers.
Let’s stop normalizing + justifying state sanctioned murder by those who take an oath to uphold the law. https://t.co/PPYcYvCa6i

An investigation will bring out further details, but obviously Rep. Omar would like the protests and riots to re-start ASAP, and it’s disgusting:
Talking about the same guy who rammed police cars and started shooting at the officers?

Yes, she forgot to mention those parts for obvious reasons.
No surprise Ilhan Omar is rushing to defend the person who was on video plowing into cop cars, pulling a gun, and shooting at the police before they returned fire killing him. https://t.co/ig6DmDwFnc

It’s also no surprise that she completely ignored those details.

You're missing the part where he had a gun and was firing at cops. Weird.

How hard is it to condemn someone who shoots at a cop?
This hard👇 https://t.co/oSWZi7zOsK

He was killed because he fired a gun at police officers.
Police were on the scene because he was ramming cars with his truck.

They killed a man trying to kill them that’s usually called self-defense

He shot at cops. What exactly is the progressive solution here for the officer? Take the bullet? Honestly asking. https://t.co/xQDWiQn8Ri

Their narrative comes first, no matter what the damage is in the real world.
