Please note that during a December 8 court appearance Joseph “Moe” Allen was cleared of all charges concerning the Bunny Friend Park shooting because of a valid alibi offered by his mother, Deborah Allen. “They got the wrong guy,” said Deborah Allen. “The police need to do their job. They need to stop trying to just put anybody in jail for a crime and trying to solve all these problems.” Seven other suspects face charges in the case. Click here for a full report.-JFT
One of the emails I received recently dramatically pointed out a dichotomy: There was a very serious mass shooting—17 victims shot—in the Bunny Friend Park in New Orleans, Louisiana, by a 32-year-old black man, Joseph “Moe” Allen in the latter half of November 2015—the 22nd, which the emailer can’t figure out why there was no Internet media uproar following the incident like we see when there are similar incidents involving Caucasian shooters. Rather interesting, too, it seems the alleged perpetrator fled a DWI checkpoint 2 days before the park shooting. Hmmm!
