Baltimore Fox Affiliate Caught Faking A “Kill A Cop” Protest Chant (Video)

Fox 45

Tension is thick in the streets after the shooting death of two NYPD officers yesterday. This Fox news affiliate in Baltimore isn’t helping to ease things any.

This Fox News affiliate decided that it was perfectly fine to change protestors speech to sound like they were calling for the killing of police officers.

In this video, you can hear a protester in Washington, D.C. shout the following chant:

We can’t stop!

We won’t stop!

’til killer cops are in cell blocks!

Baltimore’s local FOX affiliate got their hands on this video and out their own spin to it. They have a protestor saying,

We can’t stop!

We won’t stop!

So kill a cop!

By cutting away from the video mid-chant, FOX’s segment paints protestors as explicitly calling for the murder of police.

Even stranger was the person they attempted to credit the chant to.

According to the news affiliate, the woman leading the chant is Tawanda Jones, the sister of Tyrone West, who was murdered by Baltimore City Police on July 18, 2013.

The West family’s quest for justice for this crime has been overwhelmingly ignored by the city of Baltimore – after 73 weeks’ worth of “West Wednesday” actions, the family has still not even been given Tyrone’s full autopsy report.

She posted this on Facebook in response to the video
