A panel on Fox News Sunday addressed the recent murder of LaQuan McDonald and discussed the role of race in the violence.
The panelists addressed the media’s recent coverage of the case and discussed how race is a factor in the death.
“We can’t really put a finger on the motive, but what I think people are noticing is that there is some sort of a racial disparity in the way this is being treated, and that’s something that we’re going to continue to look at,” former FBI special agent-in-charge Michael Botticelli said.
“I think we have to begin to take this seriously.”
Former New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly added that “we’re at a point in time where we’ve reached a point where we can say we don’t have enough information.”
Kelly said that “it’s important that we look at what we know, and we’re not in a position where we have the ability to say, ‘Oh, it’s all on race.’
We have to look and say, we know what’s going on.
There are elements of race involved, but we don [have] any idea what it is.”
Kelly was also asked if the recent media coverage of McDonald’s death was “just sensationalism” or a “false flag.”
“I think it’s a false flag, as far as I’m concerned,” Kelly said.
