This is why BBC News. Look at that recount: “killed on 9 August after being stopped by a police officer for walking in the street.” 

Facts. 

•no opinion
•no postulating 

Just the straight account. Dude walks in street. Dude is shot dead by officer. 

This is what happened. 

If it makes us feel uncomfortable or diseased or unsafe, it’s not because of flowery language or bias or imagination that we choose to agree or disagree with. 

It’s because of the actual events and actions. That happened. This happened. And it’s disturbing.

Why do we deny it? {I think I know why. But reflect.}
