SUBJECT: The Pinnock beating story -- you have been duped
In the spirit of positive feedback, this Em is being sent to
respectfully alert you folks to your own journalistic incompetence. You, along
with hundreds of others, have been duped by the CHP in your reporting of the
Marlene Pinnock beating – you have all bought into the BS that the lady was
barefoot, for one thing. That "fact," which is false, reflects
poorly on her mental health, but reflects even more poorly on your competence
for having reported it in spite of clear evidence to the contrary in the Diaz
Some of you have bought into the nine 911 calls released by
CHP as being related to Ms. Pinnock on Jul01.2014, the evening she was beaten.
Within every story there is a story, and, unfortunately, the
second-order story here is the way the press has butchered the main story. The
story within the story is about you all, and it does not look good.
You can get the details at the following article published
on Scribd, which includes my detailed excoriation of your work.
Please, go back, look at the Diaz vid, listen to the 911
calls, and use some skepticism about what the cops are telling you.
Sorry to have to be so blunt about this, but you are feeding
the CHP's disinformation campaign.
