That's not to say there are no racist police but it fair to give them the presumption of innocence.
sure ok maybe,
But I suspect a search of real reports would outnumber the fake by quite a bit.
But assumptions of guilt or innocence should be based on evidence at hand in a specific case, Not just by remembering the latest FAKE story and not thinking of all the real stories that we've ignored over the years.
Not All of the stories are fake... and if we're going to look back at U.S. history overall the assumption of innocence isn't the clear default position.

but i do agree that not all stories like this need to be national news.

From what I've read since my post the situation was marginally concerned the IV and theft accusation. Patient and 2 of his companions confronted by a security guard and apparently copped an attitude. Police were called.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/illinois-...patient-iv-arm. All three were arrested.

Again, from what I've read.
