"Who hath measured the ground?" 'White supremacists infiltrate US police departments: Researcher.' LATER: Oh, I get it now. Press TV is based in TEHERAN.

Messenger: My lord high constable, the English lie within fifteen hundred paces of your tents.
Constable: Who hath measured the ground?
-- Shakespeare, Henry the Fifth, Act 3, Scene 7.
Federal data shows that white supremacists and “terrorists” have infiltrated law enforcement departments across the United States and have killed thousands of people, according to a researcher and historian in Washington.
Riiight. Well, my first question on reading this was, "Who hath measured the ground?"
I'd never heard of the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization, and discovered some interesting facts.
BANCO is headed by convicted election fraudster Edward Pinkney.
"Some people in town would call you a con man," Bohn said.
"Some people call me a hero, too," Pinkney responded.
"You used multiple aliases. You used different Social Security numbers. What do you say to those claims? " asked Bohn.
"Thank you, this is over," Pinkney said while shutting his front door and refusing to answer any further questions.
Just how someone affiliated with BANCO can get his name in a story without that organization's past crimes being mentioned is, to say the least, journalistic malpractice.
Later: My comment posted at the article site:
Just exactly how is it that you treat this "researcher" seriously when he is associated with BANCO, an organization founded by convicted election fraudster and race hustler Edward Pinkney? By not mentioning that organization's criminal history, you are committing journalistic malpractice. Don't you find it the least bit damning that this "researcher" claims BANCO on his CV? But of course, to mention these facts would be to cast doubt on the entire story, wouldn't it? -- Mike Vanderboegh, Pinson AL
LATER: Oh, I get it now. My comment showed up when posted but then was quickly deleted. So I went to Press TV and discovered that it is based in Teheran, Iran.
Wikipedia reports:
Press TV is a 24-hour English language news organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB). The IRIB is state-owned but independent of the Iranian government in its management; the IRIB is a legal TV and radio broadcaster. PressTV headquarters are located in Tehran, Iran.
Criticizing the mullah-heads for propaganda is like blaming rattlesnakes for biting or handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.

Um, what comment?
I don't see any comment there, at least none that seem to be written by rational English speaking people.

Iran jumping on the "let's start a civil war in America" bandwagon. George Soros is driving and they figured they'd hitch-hike a ride
