“Ben Tomkins’s #2 is untrue”

Once again, I reread Ben Tomkins’s highlighted #2 (from his DCP “The Ferguson wasteland” column) and politely point out that it is obviously untrue:“2. A black man robbing or appearing to rob a convenience store doesn’t mean he’s a criminal.”
Being nonjudgmental aka lacking (good) judgment is not a complimentary attribute that contributes to one’s abilities or credibility; especially after one sees video evidence (with witnesses) concerning learning about criminal behavior done by perpetrators. Media people could and should ask real victims about this, the ones who pout and shout about being shoplifted, burgled, beaten, robbed, mobbed, vandalized, looted and burned out. Although this is judgmental and true, Mr. Tomkins’s entire column is not a brown PC piece of Number Two.
