The video of school police slapping and kicking a student at Reach High School has once again drawn the national news to the city. Police brutality, Baltimore, a million over-determined moral memes are released. There is indignation all around, calls for change and lives mattering from all kind of good folks, mayor-wannabes, state legislators, non-profiteers, ersatz advocates, academics, and reformers. CNN and NBC Nightly News sculpt the story perfectly with a 4-second phone clip and their cut-and-paste narrative template of what racial injustice must manifestly be. The local journalists manqué get as close to a city public school as they ever do.
