Corrupt Associated Press Spins Reporting on Career Criminal - No Spin News Excerpt

We’re coming down on the Associated Press because they are part of the corrupt corporate media. AP articles are widely distributed to smaller news organizations around the country.  They published an article that painted Andrew Brown Jr. of North Carolina as a martyr and model father figure, when that wasn’t the full story.  Brown was in and out of prison while his 7 children were growing up for selling hard illegal drugs. And he was allegedly selling drugs again. Some role model! 
Now, Mr. Brown shouldn’t have been shot and killed by police. The Associated Press shouldn’t be painting this false narrative either.  The No Spin News will give it to you straight!

Cape Fear Community College implements police training simulator

Card image cap

Cape Fear Community College aims to save lives with a new virtual reality police training system.
The virtual training simulator, called "VirTra," is designed to help basic law enforcement training (BLET) students improve how they respond to an active shooter, domestic violence, and other high-stress situations. It offers more than 200 different real-life scenarios such as a movie theater, courthouse, or a school campus and includes three large screens for a 180-degree engaging training environment.
The ending outcomes of the scenarios depend upon the actions and statements taken by the officer in real time, with multiple responses from on-screen persons. The simulator recreates psychological stressors, like an elevated heart rate and high levels of adrenaline, that officers experience during the intensive training.

Americans want police to release body-cam footage. But there's a bigger worry.

On April 21, one day after a Minneapolis jury convicted former police officer Derek Chauvin of murdering George Floyd, police in Elizabeth City, N.C., shot and killed Andrew Brown Jr. — and so far have declined to release body-cam footage of the incident. But then, it had taken 78 days between Floyd’s death before a British newspaper leaked Minneapolis police body-cam footage. By contrast, just one day after police shot and killed Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minn. — during the Chauvin trial — that department released the footage to the media.

A Black Lives Matter sign is now displayed in the window outside his downtown shoe repair shop.
The fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. by sheriff's deputies has sent shock waves through this small, majority Black city in the state's rural northeastern corner.
Despite holding an important place in African American history in the 19th and 20th centuries, Elizabeth City seemed too close-knit and too out-of-the-way to become a flashpoint in the 21st, some residents say.
That changed when Brown, 42, was shot by Pasquotank County sheriff's deputies serving drug-related search and arrest warrants at his house on April 21.
Brown, who was Black, was behind the wheel of his car when he was shot five times, including in the back of the head, according to an independent autopsy commissioned by his family.

New WTW group to explore potential for 'beta' PE vehicle | News

By Susanna Rust2021-05-05T12:33:00+01:00
Willis Towers Watson has launched a working group that will explore the potential for a new type of passive, or beta, offering within private equity that would allow a wider range of asset owners to access and hold such investments.
In a new paper, the consultancy said that although there were structural tailwinds to support the continuing rise of private equity in institutional portfolios, the industry needed to evolve to fully capture its growth potential.
Andrew Brown, head of private equity research at Willis Towers Watson, said the current model in private equity had performed well over the past few decades, but “we are increasingly seeing capital moving away from defined benefit pension schemes into defined contribution (DC), so there is a need to innovate in order to identify a structure that enables a wider investor base to access opportunities”.

George Floyd. Biden urged the nation’s top lawmakers to do more to “deliver real change and reform,” and said that state and local law enforcement leaders need to step up. 

Driving while Black: How police racism endangered three generations of my family

Driving while Black: How police racism endangered three generations of my family
Michael H. Cottman

At 16 years old — before I took my driver's license test in Detroit — my father, Howard, asked me to sit down at the kitchen table in our home in a middle-class neighborhood on the city's East Side for "The Talk," which many Black fathers were having (and still have) with their sons and daughters across America.
It was a serious discussion; it was a dangerous time. A complete breakdown of trust between the police and Detroit's Black community had led to a civic rebellion at that point in the 1970s. I had already become a young, unsuspecting witness to the random harassment of Black boys like me, while elsewhere in the city, police were beating and killing young Black men in an unprecedented series of assaults.
