CNN editing turns interview with Milwaukee victim’s sister on its head, sparks anger online (VIDEO)


CNN has faced a public backlash for editing an interview with the sister of a Milwaukee police shooting victim to make it look as if she was calling for peace and calm, when the full video shows her angry calls for people to take action.

Sherelle Smith, sister of Sylville K. Smith, the man shot by police in Milwaukee, can be seen in the video appearing to passionately appeal to people’s good sense, saying “Don’t bring the violence here!”  

That is when CNN decided to press ‘stop’ and air the video, before Smith had the chance to continue her speech. Appearing on CNN Newsroom on Monday, Smith was described as “calling for peace” by the show’s Ana Cabrera.

But in a fuller version of the video, posted elsewhere, Smith unloads: “Burnin down sh*t ain’t going to help nothin! Y’all burnin’ down sh*t we need in our community. Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down! We need our sh*t!  We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.”

The network’s editing sparked anger on social media.

Milwaukee saw violent riots and street chaos on the weekend, complete with arson and destruction of property. The unrest followed a police-involved shooting of an armed black man. County Sheriff David Clarke quickly took to social media to blame the Obama administration and its liberal policies for the riots. But this only added fuel to people’s anger.

More than 100 people protested on Saturday over the shooting. That didn’t stop Clarke from repeating the sentiment again during a Monday press conference.

    Just send in a jeep with a Gatling Gun and Gun down all the low life’s that wish to do violence. There just tools of Zionist Jews like Soros.

    Does the dumb cow calling for violence even realise it was a BLACK cop that shot her felon brother?

    • gingercake5

      If he’s wearing a police uniform, I don’t think they see him as a brother anymore. This stuff is funded by Soros, to continue the crime and the hatred. I’m sure that sister (of the perp) will get a lump sum.

      Yeah, and three of the six Freddie Gray officers were black, too. Has your dumb ass ever heard of institutionalized racism? Did somebody forget to pay attention in social studies class?

      • ReverendDraco????????? ???????

        Your dub ass forgot to pay attention in math class.

        How does blacks killing each other at a 40:1 ratio compared to cops killing them equal “institutionalized racism?”

        Fucking moron.

        • clang

          Disproportionate killings of blacks by cops compared to black on black killings has absolutely NOTHING to do with term “institutionalized racism” being used in the previous post, but lets entertain your tiny little head, anyway. So, over the same time period (in St. Louis, MO – because that’s all your graph covers) how many whites were killed by each other vs by cops? Latinos? Asians? The data is going to be very similar, whichever race in question. Whatever point you’re trying to force out of your bigoted waste-hole is half-assed. It’s like using the cover of a book to prove your argument (that black people are inferior?) when you’ve never read a single page. Sounds like you also dropped out a little too soon.

    CNN was dead a long time ago.

  • RenegadeProphet

    ALL the media are evil liars!
    The entire government are evil treasonous criminals. The day of the next false flag using the nuke they stole in 2007 and blamed on Iran, America will be destroyed by Russia, China and the SCO. This is the war of Armageddon and you can know it is now because of Planet X and the toxic chemtrails that hide it every day. Planet X will end the war when it rips the earth apart again but 90% of Americans will be dead already. All planned by your evil government.

  • challengeauthority

    I have no one to root for in this story. all I know is that the powers that be, love this chaos.

    • FreddyB

      Yeah, TPTB are loving this BS. But I can not and never will back the blacks as they are acting like a spoiled child throwing a pathetic tantrum because they can’t have candy before supper.

      I refuse to listen to the crap about it’s not all blacks, where are the good ones trying to protect their neighbourhoods?

      They burn businesses down forcing out those trying to make a better life for themselves and employing other from the area.

      They threaten violence and people pander and make excuses instead of their arses being tossed in jail for being the terrorists they are.

      All they know is destroy and take!
