Re: “Durham Police investigation: Huerta shot self in patrol car

As I said earlier, my aim isn't to distract from the core issue, but just because the focus should be Huerta's death doesn't mean that my concern for citing sources elsewhere in this post is invalid. My comment may be distracting, but it is no more extraneous than the assertion in question without a listed source.
I'm relying on alternative media like INDY Week to understand what's happening (I live in Greensboro), and my intention is to clarify the details so that we can all comprehend the different elements of this story. Yes, the main focus here is — and must be — Huerta, but the details still matter.
While I have tremendous respect for INDY Week and its whole staff (and appreciate the rest of the reporting in this post), I hope that my concerns can be understood as more than splitting hairs, but as an attempt to convey all the aspects of this story as accurately as possible.

Re: “Durham Police investigation: Huerta shot self in patrol car

I don't mean to distract from the primary issue here, but again I take issue with the characterization of events on the ground at the second demonstration.
While this account more closely mirrors what I've heard from people on the ground than the previous post I critiqued, I'm confused by the reporting on the order of events. People I've talked to who were there all say that either nothing was thrown at police or that things were only thrown after police used tear gas. This post says "only some of whom had thrown rocks and bottles at officers," implying that the police reacted to things being thrown. I'm not discounting the possibility that this happened, but again ask what Indy Week's source is. In a case with tremendous distrust on various sides, it's all the more crucial that news outlets cite their sources for specific information. Where is the detail that people threw rocks and bottles coming from and how do we know the order of events?
I understand that this may seem trivial or nitpicky, but it's important that Indy Week and the public don't automatically accept a certain narrative of events without evidence or cited sources.
