Two police officers have been shot tonight in Louisville, but the mainstream media has declared the riots to be “mostly peaceful.”

The riots in Louisville were sparked by the ruling in the case of Breonna Taylor, where a grand jury did not indict any police officers in her death, and only charged one with counts of wanton endangerment. As National File reported:

[Kentucky AG] Cameron was asked whether there would be any more charges relating to the case, and he confirmed that there would be no more charges, including murder or manslaughter. “I think it’s unlikely there will be any additional prosecutions that come from that incident itself,” he said. He added that six classes of homicide charges were not justified as Officers Mattingly and Cosgrove were justified in their use of force.

During the riots, two police officers were shot by a Black Lives Matter protestor.

One man was arrested by law enforcement near a Thornton’s gas station shortly after the shooting.

Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said at a press conference that both officers are currently undergoing treatment at University Hospital.

One officer is alert and stable, while the other officer is currently undergoing surgery and stable.

Schroeder also said that they have one suspect in custody.

However, the mainstream media are reluctant to label the chaos in Louisville as “riots,” and have declared it to be “mostly peaceful.”

The phrase has often been used to describe the recent Black Lives Matter riots across the country.

“Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 PM curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protestors and heavily armed police,” Reuters tweeted.

ABC11 Eyewitness news reported on the first police officer being shot, but said that it was “unclear” if the shooting was tied to the “protests.”

It’s no surprise that many people online mocked the reporting for their bias.

National File reported earlier today that Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, funded the Bail Project, a group with links to George Soros that employs Holly Zoller, who was caught handing out shields to potential rioters from the back of a U-Haul:

The Bail Project has been funded by the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. In June, Dorsey’s #startsmall intiative teamed up with Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, to donate $11 million to organisations that “advance racial equity, with a focus on criminal justice and policing reform.” The Bail Project was a recipient of these funds, along with Black Lives Matter.
