On PBS's Bullsh*t Michael Brown Infographic

Perhaps you've seen it on Facebook, twitter, or adult friend finder. It's being cited by people perpetuating the "hands up, don't shoot" myth in relation to the Michael Brown case.

Well, it turns out that the infographic is incorrect and over simplified.

57 That chart needs a checkbox column for:

"Significantly altered testimony in between original interview/affadavit and actual appearance before grand jury".

About three-quarters of the witnesses listed would be ticked.

It's the Rachel Jeantel Rule. When the prosecutor relies on the accounts of people who are too jaw-droppingly stupid to keep their lies straight, the case is liable to abruptly collapse.

It is mildly disappointing that we won't get to see Dorian Johnson endure hostile cross on the stand under oath. As his five or six different and unreconcilable versions of events got slowly and mercilessly picked apart by Wilson's defense team.

69 The truth is of no matter when emotionality and “larger truths” about social justice are being exposed. But myths only have half-lives while factual evidence has staying power. Eventually, the myth will fade as will the public’s interest in this incident.

"EBT cards don't work so well at the Quickie Mart after you've BURNED THIS BITCH DOWN."

If there's one thing that can be predicted with granitic surety, it's that four or five years from now, there will be tearjerking descriptions by lefties of how Feral-guson's welfare moochers are now sadly relegated to a "food desert" with few or no groceries nearby.

Some with classical educations may remember the dry jibe by Tacitus about Roman policy, how "They make a desert, and call it peace."

Today, "They make a food desert, and call it social justice."

75 Key takeaways:
1. Eyewitness testimony is unreliable.
2. Someone raising their hands does not necessarily imply an intent to surrender. As the witnesses' actual testimony makes clear.

The Democrat prosecutor when he announced the Grand Jury decision said that--


many "witnesses ADMITTED they had not SEEN the shooting."

(I am paraphrasing--but it was something like that.)

The PBS chart does not account for that at all--and I am not seeing that they discuss that in their article either.

What bothers me is that everyone, everywhere, knows that a mother of a dead child will always shout how their baby was an angel, pure as driven snow, a saint. And everyone knows they're full of crap. That they'll call the most horrific monster that ever walked the earth a special pure snowflake when they die.

But when it serves a political purpose, well who cares about that? We have a deeper truth!

True that.

Indeed I know people who were saying "he was unarmed, that's the only evidence I need."

Hopefully they'll remember that when the burning times come they get beat to death by mobs .

Hell logic like that doesn't follow at all. One of my cousins posted that to facebook and my dad (who has been mugged twice violently by people who were either unarmed or armed with nothing more than a slapjack) noted "They don't have to be armed for you to fear for you life, I know this."

And she still wouldn't shut up. (She finally went away when another family member pointed out that all her boycotting shit was going to hurt the hourly workers she claims to care about.)

157 To get the jump on when Ace reposts the upcoming thread about the charts documenting left-wing bias in the media and academia, here's my back-from-the-future comment:

------

Seriously, though, Ace, you may want to mention this significant fact in an update or new post:

In almost every aspect of human behavior and natural existence, any chart documenting the extent of variation is in what statisticians call "a bell curve," which means that most people/things/behaviors fall in the middle of the spectrum, and the more extreme/outlying you are, the fewer examples there are out on the edges.

And all of sociology and anthropology and social sciences to this day assume that everything falls on a "bell curve."

This ought to apply to political beliefs as well: most people ought to be some variant of "centrist," with a few far-lefties and and few far-righties at the fringes.

HOWEVER, these charts demonstrate the opposite: most of them have an INVERSE bell curve: in other words, NO ONE is in the middle. (Well, not "no one," but a statistically shocking small percentage.)

In almost every chart, there are "up bumps" at the edges, and a DIP in the middle -- but the middle is where everyone ought to be.

Even the charts that are crazily lopsided show this effect: The "news media" chart for example shows about 92% of them are far far far left-wing, about 7% are somewhat conservative, and basically NONE are "centrist."

Same is true for every other chart.

So this proves, conclusively, that American politics has been irrevocably and utterly polarized: two extremes facing off across a vast gulf.

There wouldn't have been any opportunity to do so.

It's pretty clear that the instant Big Mike went after officer Wilson, loyal Dorian was gone so fast he left behind a line of footprints with flames and smoke in them, like an old Warner Brothers cartoon.

Not least because Dorian was toting around open warrants from another jurisdiction (which is why he was in Ferguson: he was on the lam and trying to stay away from cops who might recognize him) and definitively did *NOT* want for the Gentle Giant to start attracting heat.

200 Well, if the riot instigator apologized for what he said, then it's ok. He didn't really mean it, and he's sorry, and he didn't mean for there to be an actual 'burning of property'. He was just speaking figuratively and rhetorically. Speechifying as it were, for the news cameras.

So we should forgive him and just move on. For the Children.

The ones who will read it are on our side already and hate the media, or, if they're in the business, will think they're one of the good Germans and that Hemingway's piece doesn't apply to them.

209 Curves best describe information that is not binary.

A yes/no question has a right answer and a wrong answer. The responses shouldn't fit a bell curve.
Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo


True, but political beliefs are NOT simply a "yes/no question" nor are they binary. The chart documents the extremism level of where the donations from journalists (for example) are going: to groups that are far-left, medium-left, somewhat left, middle, somewhat right, medium right, far right -- and all gradations in between. So in theory, under normal social sciences theory, the distribution curve ought to be at least somewhat bell-shaped, even if slid way over to the left. The respondants are not answering a single yes/no question.

218 For those of you who are sadly shaking your heads over the ridiculousness of the "eyewitness" testimony, I offer you further food for thought in that the "eyewitness" testimony in the Zimmerman-Martin case was just as crummy.

My favorite was the woman (a retired public school teacher, natch) who absolutely insisted that she had heard Zimmerman shoot Martin multiple times. Despite this being utterly at variance with every available piece of physical evidence.

Prosecutors forge ahead with taking these unsupportable cases in front of jurors, none too subtly trying to damp out race riots, and then are flummoxed when the jury foreman comes back out carrying papers with what amounts to a great big "WTF, dude?" scrawled across the front.

HOWEVER, these charts demonstrate the opposite:
most of them have an INVERSE bell curve: in other words, NO ONE is in
the middle. (Well, not "no one," but a statistically shocking small
percentage.)



In almost every chart, there are "up bumps" at the edges, and a DIP in the middle -- but the middle is where everyone ought to be.



Even the charts that are crazily lopsided show this effect: The
"news media" chart for example shows about 92% of them are far far far
left-wing, about 7% are somewhat conservative, and basically NONE are
"centrist."



Same is true for every other chart.



So this proves, conclusively, that American politics has been
irrevocably and utterly polarized: two extremes facing off across a vast
gulf.
