There are some news stories that just seem to be everywhere, even after a year they are still headlining in the mainstream media, and there are those stories that never really see the light of day. Some of those stories shouldn’t reach the level of national news, like the winner of the pie eating contest at the local fair, but a murder where the victim was found to have been doused with gasoline and burned alive, that seems like a pretty big story.
From Clash Daily:
The FBI has rounded up 17 black gang members that were in connection with the murder of Jessica Chambers in Mississippi. She was a white 19 year old girl that had disappeared from a gas station while she was filling up her car with gas; her body was found burning just a few miles from the station. The thugs doused her with gasoline and then burned her alive.
It is a story that seems as though it should have made headlines; after all it was a crime involving a victim being of one race, and the perpetrators being of another. That makes for very compelling mainstream media news, when the cast is correct of course.
One week before, and on just the day before Jessica Chambers was carjacked and burned to death, certain blacks among her intimate circle and acquaintance were involved in Facebook exchanges wherein calls for the rape and burnings of white women and children, especially the families of white police officers, were posted.
Although not a police officer himself, Jessica Chambers’ father is an employee of the Panola County sheriff’s department, in the vehicle maintenance section.
I only ask this, if the roles were reversed, how much coverage would this event would have garnered, how high would it have risen, and how would it be discussed?
In a climate where there are marches exclaiming “Black Lives Matter”, let’s focus on “All Lives Matter”.
