agents provocateurs: because only antifa could pre-position construction debris to throw at cops

So much disinformation, so little time left to election day. Malign forces are at work, not always interested in things like equal rights under the law. Which side are they on. Who are they, considering the media manipulation at work.

On Wednesday morning, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea posted a video on Twitter of an NYPD officer on a street corner, facing what look like several blue plastic bins full of bricks or concrete chunks. “This is what our cops are up against,” he wrote. “Organized looters, strategically placing caches of bricks & rocks at locations throughout NYC.”

There is one major issue with that story: VICE has confirmed the video was taken on a street corner in Gravesend, a part of South Brooklyn where no protests, looting or rioting actually occurred. Interviews with both workers in the area and location data from both Snapchat and Instagram show there were no protests anywhere near that corner.

[…]

In the case of the New York bins, it is, of course, theoretically possible that well-organized looters with a penchant for doing things the hard way would place bins full of rioting materials on a busy street corner miles from any of the many large protests happening elsewhere in the city, presumably to be picked up later and transported to protests by car, which of course many New Yorkers own, only for those highly conspicuous bins to be found in broad daylight by the police. That is, anyway, the version of events that we’re apparently being asked to believe.
