THREAD: Mainstream media outlets like NBC consistently use the passive voice and euphemism to prevent themselves from clearly stating when elements of government, such as police, kill people.

This isn't objectivity.

Let's take a look at what they just wrote about #AnthonyBrown
"The Black man who died during an attempted arrest"

He "died," or was he "killed"?

And who was arresting him?

"...was killed by a bullet in the back of his head."

As gun owners know, guns/bullets don't kill people. People do.

Cops killed him by shooting him in back of head. Image
"...who found that Brown was shot four times in the right arm and once squarely in the back of his head."

'Brown was shot'

"That head shot was fired from "intermediate" range"

'head shot was fired'

The first time NBC says police shot at him is quoting the family lawyer. Image
