But do these claims of mass danger and death hold water? Is it really necessary to smash an elderly woman's face into the ground, so you can "make it home to your wife and kids"?

The more I think about the case the more I think it was a deliberate setup by the federal agent Al Sharpton and his fellow fed-run Judas goat black leaders.
