Sheriff’s spokesperson completely distorts the truth
November 23, 2013
The spokesperson for the Dallas Co., Texas sheriff completely lied about the department’s violent attack on peaceful free speech demonstrators by stating that the deputies ordered the crowd to move and disperse when no such order was ever given prior to yesterday’s assault.
Carmen Castro, spokeswoman for Sheriff Lupe Valdez, told the Dallas Morning News that the deputies violently charged the demonstrators because they were crowding “not only private citizens who were attempting to pay their respects but also equipment that was in place for the event.”
She further stated that the demonstrators was forcibly moved back after they “refused to obey.”
Yet the deputies gave no orders to the crowd prior to their assault. As our own footage even shows, the deputies marched to the crowd with the intent to attack and nothing else.
The crowd who had been waiting outside the city’s John F. Kennedy 50th anniversary event, which the City of Dallas promised to open to the public at 2:30pm.
The local mainstream media outlets are also covering for the sheriff’s dept. by spinning the circumstances surrounding the attack.
The article in the Dallas Morning News further stated that the deputies shoved the crowd down the street because they “decided they’d had enough.”
Local police, however, are effectively federalized during special events, taking orders from federal agencies such as the DHS. The deputies didn’t decide anything.
In fact, when we questioned one of the deputies after the assault, he said that he was just acting on orders from above.
After the attack, an Infowars reader e-mailed a local Dallas news station to ask why there was hardly any coverage on it.
The news spokesperson completely spun the story, suggesting that the police are “allowed” to keep people out of a “restricted area” and that the protestors were “trying to get into” an event where a ticket was required.
The area was not “restricted.” It was a public street OUTSIDE of a barricaded area.
What’s more, the Dallas Police provided the public access to the area where they were attacked. At no time were any barricades breached or removed.
This is a textbook example of government officials and media outlets working hand-in-hand to distort the truth and cover up criminality.
