When an incident like the attack Saturday on anti-white nationalist demonstrators happens, we want information and we want answers right away.
In the haste to break news information in seconds on their networks and social media platforms, they’re sometimes incorrect.
When that happens, the consequences can be very serious for people with no connection to the incident at all…as the story below points out—
“(Macomb County, MI) — A Michigan man and his family are living with extra protection from the Michigan State Police after being mistakenly linked to the car used to run over protesters at a white supremacist rally in Virginia. Jerome Vangheluwe says he had about three dozen calls from unidentified numbers on his phone during a wedding, and then the international media started to call. Vangheluwe sold the Dodge Challenger in 2012 that an Ohio man allegedly used to kill one woman and injure several others, and while he and his son never left Michigan this weekend, there were social media posts from racist groups accusing them of driving the car.”
I subscribe to the dying theory that I’d rather get it right, even if that means I don’t have it first.
That’s the way I see it.
