Why Wasn’t Alleged Philadelphia Shooter’s Picture Plastered on CNN this Morning?

Philadelphia shooter
Maurice Hill, 36, had a long history of gun convictions.

 

I said I would write about American criminals from time to time, and I’ve told you that I watch CNN the first thing every morning as a way of seeing where the Leftwingers/Progressives are going on any given day.

Today, at CNN, the morning anchors were talking their viewers into thinking a Trump-induced recession was upon us, but they also reported on the gun violence in the Democrat-run city of Philadelphia.

They did report that the shooter, who wounded six police officers when officers came to serve a warrant on the man who ultimately opened fire, and said the shooter had a veritable arsenal of weapons and ammunition. But, I didn’t hear them mention his name, only that he was taken into custody.

Maurice Hill, we learn here at the Philadelphia Inquirer had a long criminal history.

(See that Townhall was on it overnight with a report about Hill’s criminal history.)

So, how did Hill get his guns including assault weapons?  Are we going to hear anything about whether he had a background check?  Are we going to hear anything about mental illness? Are we going to hear anything about who he hated (police?)? Are we going to be told that a background check would have kept him from owning guns?  Did his family, friends and neighbors ever try to report him to the local police?

Are we going to hear anything about who his political heroes are?

I’ll bet that starting tomorrow, you won’t hear another peep about how the city of brotherly love harbors violent criminals with arsenals in their closets. Why? Because it runs against the PC narrative our mainstream media is peddling.

All the gun laws in the world are not going to keep the Maurice Hills from acquiring “weapons of war.”

And, you know where that leaves you—the law abiding American!
