It’s rapidly becoming a Berg’s Law: if the media doesn’t give any demographic details about a violent criminal (say, a white Hell’s Angel with an umbrella), you can infer the rest.
When I saw the initial coverage of Saturday morning’s bloodbath in the Warehouse District, I treated it as a test.
Up until noonish yesterday (Sunday)? Even after the arrest was made? Not a word about the shooter.
So – was I right?
What do you think?
Carroll was arrested in 2016 for a variety of felonies egregious enough for Mike Freeman to put down his bottle for a moment at try to make an example of.
Carroll ended up getting all charges dismissed, in exchange for pleading guilty to “disorderly condcut”.
Remember – public safety is a privilege.
