Baltimore News Station Caught Manipulating Video

As [__police union leaders fling blame__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/12/police-accountability-must-continue-wake-nypd-shooting-deaths-despite-union-rhetoric/) of the recent NYPD shooting deaths on anti-police brutality protesters, a Baltimore television news station was caught manipulating a protest video to make it seem as if demonstrators were calling for the death of cops when all they were doing was calling for the imprisonment of cops that kill.

FOX 45 obtained the footage from C-Span, which ran the clip in its entirety, capturing a woman named Tawanda Jones leading a crowd of protesters in Washington D.C. with the following chant:

> We can’t stop!
> We won’t stop!
> ’til killer cops
> are in cell blocks!

But FOX 45 snipped off the last portion of the last phrase, which changed the entire context of the chant:

> We can’t stop!
> We won’t stop!
> So kill a cop!

A female narrator was also sure to inform readers that these protesters were calling for the death of cops. Both videos are below.

Jones, a Baltimore woman whose brother was killed by police last year during a traffic stop in which an autopsy determined he died from [__“positional asphyxiation,”__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/autopsy-reveals-tyrone-west-death-after-months-of-brutality-speculation) has been leading dozens of protesters since then, calling for police reform.

But this was the first time she was accused of calling for the death of cops.

She posted the following statement on [__Facebook:__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/tawanda.jones.754?fref=ts)

[__Baltimore Bloc__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/436997373037153), an activist group that she belongs to, posted the following comment as well.

[__FOX 45__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/FOXBaltimore) has since issued a clarification on its Facebook page, but not an explanation.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
