That's right, folks. A good man, a kind man, a young man--murdered, in a community whose police force statistics for racial profiling are off the charts
and who does the lily white City Council of Falcon Heights marches into battle against? That demon, that evil--bad publicity. (http://www.twincities.com/2016/07/13/st-anthony-police-data-shows-disproportionate-arrests-of-blacks/)
Mayor Peter Lindstrom, in the first article, brags that the administration decided not to hired a publicist after all.
And as for Philando Castile, murdered for driving while black--Lindstrom is not okay with that. "I'm deeply upset and deeply hurt by what has happened in a community that I love and I am not OK with it," Lindstrom said.
Whew. There is still hope for humanity.
If I sound rage-filled, it's because I am.
