Upper West Side Robbery of $150K in front of Starbucks

WNBC-TV has the most hilarious article about a broad-daylight robbery in midtown Manhattan. But if you read it, the robber is described as everything except his skin color. A cab driver is not quoted in the NBC version:
Police were searching a suspect they described as a man between 25 and 30 years old who was wearing a black parka, black pants is about five feet 9 inches tall.

Zafer Incekara, a limousine driver from Lyndhurst, N.J., said the gunman fired a shot at the man before he fled.

"I saw the guy running out to Sixth Avenue" with the black bag after leaving the man in the street, said witness Amado Delacruz, 34, of Bayonne, N.J.

"You don't expect this. Not on 56th Street. Especially in front of Starbucks," Delacruz said.

A woman who answered the telephone at the Starbucks hung up on a reporter's call Friday.

The investigation is on-going. will provide more details as soon as they become available.

Compare the NBC-TV version with the CBS-TV version:
"My heart is just racing … The black man was dragging the guy with the bag," said limo driver Zafer Incekara, who witnessed the bizarre scene. "And all of a sudden he just started hitting him with something. I didn't see at first but then I saw it was a gun and he shot the guy in the head."

So it was a "BLACK MAN" in the CBS version, while the NBC version has every detail except one.

Last night, an ABC-TV 20/20 piece on peoples' willingness to report a crime turned into a race issue by a weird reporter from Mexico---blacks were reported as being more suspected of perpetrating a crime than other ethnic persuasions in the scripted gotcha "journalism" piece.

Any study of crime statistics will show that it is no urban legend that blacks commit more crimes than other ethnic groups, with Hispanics a close second.

TV "news" reports that try to gloss over that fact---and south Florida is rife with the same sort of evasive reporting on ethnic background and illegal immigration status---demonstrates again that "news" is not what the MSM conveys in it propaganda war on reality.

The Nashville paper, THE TENNESSEAN, does the same thing.

Every detail will be reported, and if the accomplice is a white, mid-thirties female, it will also be reported.............but the stabbers or shooters race will not be reported. The getaway car will even be described..........but not the race of the people getting inside it. Especially if they are hispanic.

My only wish is that it was members of the elite that were victimized instead of garden variety average whites and blacks, but it never is. If it was the governors daughter who got car jacked and brutally raped and defaced with a pocket knife, and not some Jane Doe black or white girl-------------but it never is. The elite are safe in their gated communities and in their suburb cities where the cops pull over any car that looks like it doesn't belong there and chase the illegals and blacks out. Regular white and black working class folk in the city are stuck with the scum and have to live with them and in fear of them.
