Media blackout: Mass shooter wearing body armor arrested in Georgia

On Tuesday, local police along with U.S. Marshals arrested Jermaine Collins in a Forest Park apartment.

Collins had been on the run since late October when he shot at several people, in downtown Atlanta, according to police.

The Ledger-Enquirer:

Officials say Collins was recorded walking down a street in Atlanta wearing a ballistic vest and shooting at people — including a 3 year old child — with an assault rifle.

Collins was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is currently being held at the Fulton County Jail without bond.

Collins is a violent felon with a long criminal history, dating back to October 2000.

His offenses include several drug possession and distribution charges, hit-and-run, assault with a deadly weapon as well as assault and battery.

In fact, last week's arrest represents the third time Collins has faced the charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

But, back to the October shooting...

Collins was captured on video "walking down a street in Atlanta," wearing body armor and firing randomly at people, including a toddler, yet somehow, the national press missed this story?

Outside of local news reports covering the suspect's arrest, this crime has received no coverage.

Why?

Is it because our leftist news media does not want to remind us of the following facts?

-Though it is illegal for convicted felons to own or carry a firearm, they seem to have little problem obtaining them. Further evidence that gun laws only place barriers between law abiding individuals and their ability to protect themselves.

-Despite the fact that state legislatures introduce and pass seemingly countless new laws every session, liberal judges and parole boards continue to simply allow dangerous felons to be released back onto our streets every day.

-Lastly, the most controversial (and likely) reason the press has simply ignored this major story...The suspect was not a troubled teenager from an affluent, white neighborhood, but was instead, a black man who, given his record should have still been in prison.

Amid the growing epidemic of black-on-white violence, in particular, the so-called "knockout game," many of those in the mainstream press recently went so far as to call this violent and very real trend, a "myth."

The New York Times, the Huffington Post, Slate.com and CNN have all run stories in the last two weeks claiming that these attacks in cities both large and small, in which black teens sucker punch unsuspecting white victims is nothing more than "hype."

Of course, those aforementioned so-called 'news organizations' offered no explanation as to how many of these "mythical" knockout victims now lie in graves...That, is not a "myth."
