UN Melissa Fleming Applauds Killing of a Deranged Man By Police In Her Rich Nabe

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 15 – Is it supposed to be the United Nations position to rough up and ban a media that the Secretary General doesn't like?   

Then again, is it the UN position for the Secretary General's head of communications and media accreditation, Melissa Fleming, to unequivocally express "relief" that a deranged person was shot to death by the police?   

 On December 13, flaunting the view from her Upper West Side neighborhood, Melissa Fleming tweeted that "a deranged gunman fired shots from 2 guns. Fast police reaction stopped him killing.  Relieved, but such a scary close call."  


And so on the morning of December 14, Inner City Press emailed questions to Fleming, to UN Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Farhan Haq and to their boss Antonio Guterres, including: "Does USG Fleming openly support and is "relieved" by the police shooting yesterday in her neighborhoods around 112th Street and Amsterdam Avenue? Also, can you explain why Fleming, as head of DCG and MALU, has not responded or explained the ban on entry of Inner City Press, even by WebEx which IMF takes its questions over?"  

 More than 12 hours later, no answer at all. Totally corrupt. We'll have more on this.
