Motorist killed on the Garden State Parkway!

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10, 2020

Erin Burnett's disgrace:
The report appeared in print editions of yesterday's New York Times. On May 23, a motorist had been shot and killed by a policeman on New Jersey's Garden State Parkway.

The motorist's name was James Gordon. Though many facts remain unclear, other facts and claims are striking and sad. The following excerpts are drawn from Tracey Tully's news report:
TULLY (6/9/20): The attorney general’s office said that Mr. Gordon had been spotted at about 6:26 a.m. driving southbound at 110 miles per hour on the Garden State Parkway in Bass River, about 100 miles south of New York City.

It was Mr. Gordon’s fourth encounter with the police in 30 hours after a friend in New York called 911 to express concern about Mr. Gordon’s “well being and whereabouts,” according to the attorney general. “He looked very, very panicked,” the friend told the dispatcher, according to a recording of the 911 call. “He said something about a paranormal experience.”
The fact that New Jersey's attorney general says it doesn't make it true. (His name is Gurbir Grewal.) That said, you can hear the five-minute 911 call by clicking here, though parts have been redacted.

At any rate:

Thirty hours before Gordon's death, a friend had called 911 to express concern about Gordon's behavior and/or state of mind. According to Tully, four encounters with police followed. At least three of those encounters are accounted for here:
TULLY: According to Mr. Grewal’s office, Mr. Gordon ran out of gas twice in the hours before the shooting, with state troopers responding both times. He was also issued a ticket for driving 101 m.p.h. in Stafford, N.J., about 13 minutes before Sergeant Wetzel stopped him.
That would account for at least three encounters. Was there an earlier encounter in the immediate aftermath of that 911 call?

Tully's report seems to say that, but that part of her report isn't clear.

At any rate, according to Tully's report, Gordon had been issued a ticket for driving 101 mph. He was stopped for driving 110 mph shortly thereafter.

He had run out of gas two times, or possibly three. According to Tully's report, his car may have been out of gas again at the time he was shot and killed.

Thirty hours earlier, a friend had called 911 to express concern about Gordon's state of mind and/or behavior. Also included in Tully's report is a claim about a possible mental health issue and a standard disavowal:
TULLY: A former girlfriend told The Pine Barrens Tribune, a South Jersey publication, that [Gordon] was being treated for schizophrenia. His mother, sister and a family lawyer neither confirmed nor disputed that, but they said it was irrelevant to his death. The former girlfriend could not be immediately reached for comment.

“I don’t think his mental health has anything to do with it,” [Gordon's mother] said.
How did this traffic stop lead to Gordon's death? We can't tell you that, although Tully's report includes more claims and facts about what happened after that traffic stop.

According to Tully's report, the incident is under formal review; Governor Murphy is sounding very high-minded. The videotape is unclear, as is Tully's account of the videotape.

Having said that, mental illness is a serious matter. Like speed, mental illness can kill.

Or not! We don't know what happened that night. We don't know if the trooper was at fault in some way.

We did watch Erin Burnett last night,
and what we saw was a simple disgrace. Chris Cuomo's later interview with Houston police chief Art Acevedo wasn't a whole lot better.

Burnett's presentation would be an extremely bad joke if so many deeply serious matters weren't at stake. We'll suggest you read the embarrassing transcript to see the way she and her corporate owners decided the game should be played.

In our view, CNN has become unwatchable in the wake of George Floyd's death. The network could save a lot of money by replacing Cooper and Lemon with enjoyable life-sized puppets. Cuomo's not far behind.

Journalistically speaking, we're not sure we've ever seen a worse segment than the one Burnett conducted. We're suddenly living in Maoist times. Multimillionaire "cable news" stars retain their jobs in such ways.

All downhill from here: At the start of the segment, after a very short account of what happened, Burnett introduced her fair-and-balanced panel. If life and death issues weren't involved, this would merely be funny:
BURNETT (6/9/20): All right. Martin [Savidge], thank you very much.

And I want to go outfront now to William Wagstaff, the attorney for Maurice Gordon's family, and Shavar Jeffries, a civil rights attorney and community leader who's trying to help the family get answers about Maurice's death.
Her fair-and-balanced panel consisted of two people—a lawyer who's representing the family, and a lawyer who's trying to help the family.

Kabuki theater proceeded from there. Increasingly, more and more, this truly is CNN.

    3. I was rejected by my husband of 8 years,it hurts so much been neglected all the time, I confronted my husband and he say it’s not working and needs a divorce.. I felt depressed and needed solution cause I love him so much. I went online for solution or counseling, when I stumbled on a testimonial page. People with similar problem as mine.

I contacted this great man, Dr Abaka, who prayed for me and assured me of my husband will return to my arms the next day of his spell prayer, behold after that prayer night, my husband came home pleading for my forgiveness, it’s our 1 year together after the prayer of Dr Abaka and my husband has never changed towards loving me.. contact this great man today via email: drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com or you can call/whats app no: +2349063230051.

  2. "In our view, CNN has become unwatchable in the wake of George Floyd's death."

    It never has been. Or at least from the early 90s.

    And what's the point of Mr Gordon's story, dear Bob? Do you have nothing to brood over?

  3. "Having said that, mental illness is a serious matter. Like speed, mental illness can kill."

    Incidence of violence is less than 5% among schizophrenic men. The targets are usually family members, loved ones, caretakers and mental health practitioners. To characterize all mentally ill people as inherently violent is grossly unfair and wrong.

    That the police don't know how to deal with mentally ill people is manifestly obvious. This is a matter of training, since people do turn to 911 to deal with situations they too do not know how to handle. If we are going to call 911 for mental health issues, police need to be trained to deal with them.

    Those calling for dismantling police believe that police are not the best people to handle mental health calls. Someone who is schizophrenic and having a psychotic episode may be fearful of police (as they are of people generally) and unable to understand the commands they are being given. An EMT might do a better job, better yet, someone trained in mental illness, such as a psychiatric nurse or doctor. Mentally ill people experiencing a great deal of distress are routinely handled in mental health facilities, without need of guns or police.

    This person should not have been shot. If that is what Burnett said, she is right. Gordon's mother is right too. Police should be able to deal with a mentally ill person without violence, just as they should other citizens stopped for traffic violations.

    1. "To characterize all mentally ill people as inherently violent is grossly unfair and wrong."

      Agreed.

      Also agreed, that mental illness CAN (not, always) kill.

      Here, you are conflating almost as much as Somerby routinely conflates.

  4. Earlier Somerby blames Parker for not telling us what Cotton said (in his opinion), now he chastises Burnett without telling us what she said (even in summary). But it is OK when Somerby misbehaves, because he's not being paid big bucks, I guess. The point is his criticism of CNN, not any discussion of Burnett's reaction or any analysis of the press, and we are not supposed to join in. That's obvious from the fact that he doesn't read comments.

  5. "And we reached out to Trooper Wetzel, but so far we have not heard an answer back."

    The attorneys also explain that they have asked questions but received no explanations from officials.

    Somerby complains that Burnett is giving only one side to this incident with Gordon and the NJ police, but if you reach out to the others involved and they do not respond, what is her responsibility at that point? It seems unfair to criticize Burnett when it is the police and government officials who do not supply info to round out the story.

  6. “The motorist's name was James Gordon.”

    Actually, the motorist’s name was Maurice Gordon.

    At any rate, Erin Burnett’s “Multimillionaire” values are on display because...the segment was bad and the panel wasn’t fair and balanced?

    Prior to Burnett’s segment, a reporter cites three recent cases of an unarmed man dead at the hands of police, Gordon among them.

    Somerby not only needs to show how or why the segment is bad, but how it represents “Multimillionaire” values, which are apparently warped.

    It isn’t clear to me how the reporting and questioning about the deaths of poor, marginalized, unarmed young men at the hands of the police shows corrupt “Multimillionaire” values.

    As far as Burnett’s panel, this statement was made: “we reached out to Trooper Wetzel, but so far we have not heard an answer back.”

  7. "A neighborhood in Warren, Michigan expressed shock this week when local police took down a black Amazon driver for merely parking the wrong way on their street."

    A flagrant case of parking while black! Neighbors apparently argued with the cop about why he attacked the delivery person, saying that he wasn't doing anything and wasn't any threat to anyone. They asked why he tackled the kid and then called for backup. The cop said he had parked wrong.
