UAlbany Bus ‘Victims’ Charged With Assault
Assault Charges have been made in the UAlbany bus incident where three African American women claimed they were attacked.
The attack was claimed to be racially-motivated and the court of public opinion automatically assumed the girls were victims. Previously unreleased video evidence has been released and now the three young women are facing assault charges.
I still have the same question since this incident was first reported: why didn't they just release the video in the first place? CDTA buses have cameras with audio and video for these exact circumstances.
Another example of how media runs with sensationalized stories like this in to get people to click on websites and view the nightly news. A lot of the time a lie is more interesting than the truth. I'm not sure who to believe in this story.
