Opinion| First off, please say a prayer for this man’s soul and for his family and loved ones. This story is heartbreaking.
Could you imagine the media coverage of this story had the roles been reversed? What would CNN be saying right now if a black man, who was a fixture in his community and an outspoken Biden supporter, who had just done an interview in which he praised Biden, was shot dead, hours later, right near the site of the interview … in a small town in Alabama?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest they would (rightfully) be all over the story. This one, I do not expect to see on the MSM because it does not further their narrative …
Bernell Trammell, an outspoken supporter of President Trump, and beloved member of his community, has been shot to death. His murder occurred mere hours after he gave a pro Trump interview according to reports.
The local CBS affiliate reported:
‘Milwaukee police say he was shot and killed around 12:30 p.m. Thursday. They’re still investigating what led up to the shooting and they are still looking for suspects.
Many community members knew Trammell for his political signs and Rastafari religious views. Community members said Trammell was an independent who supported candidates on both sides of the aisle, including President Donald Trump in the presidential race and Sen. Lena Taylor in the Milwaukee mayoral race.
John Self said he had many philosophical conversations with Trammell over the years inside his business.
“He believed in democracy. He believed in his right to free speech,” Self said. “I don’t think he ever once tried to convert you or change you. He would just tell you what he thought, he would listen to what you had to think, and then he would respect that.“
Milwaukee police said they are still investigating the motive for the shooting.
“He was a happy person. He always talked to everybody that came by basically, say hi and speak to them,” Holland said.
Community members agree that Trammell was part of what makes the Riverwest neighborhood the diverse community it is.
“This is a community that there’s a lot of diversity, a lot of different thoughts, a lot of different ideas, and I think that’s what he represented about the community: that you could express yourself and you could express your opinions, and that’s why he felt comfortable here I’m sure,” Self said.’
Police have not revealed a motive for the crime, and I am not from the neighborhood, however, I think that, considering how the media has been glorifying violence against Trump supporters, police and anyone who does not bend the knee to the mob, I don’t think we can rule out his outspoken support for Trump as a possible reason for his death. However, that is just a hypothesis and not based on anything other than the current political climate, thanks to the media.
Interestingly, Fox News reported that ‘A Milwaukee homicide victim has been identified as a well-liked fixture of the city’s Black community who supported Black Lives Matter and President Trump.’
Fox went on to report ‘Bernell Trammell, 60, was shot and killed Thursday afternoon in front of a storefront with signs in the window supporting Trump’s reelection. according to reports. He ran a small business from the storefront.’
The Heavy.com reported:
Bernell Trammell, a well-known Black supporter of Donald Trump who was a community fixture known for his publishing company and long conversations on religion and politics, often delivered from street corners while holding pro Trump and other signs, was shot to death in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Trammell, 60, was gunned down on July 23 near the very spot where he gave a video interview a few hours before explaining why he supported Trump. Milwaukee police are seeking what they described as “unknown suspects.”
The motive is not clear, including whether the slaying was tied into Trammell’s political beliefs or Trump support.
Some news outlets gave the victim’s name as Bernell Tremmell, but he goes by Trammell on social media.
Kudos to Heavy for reporting on this story and honoring Mr. Tremmell. I don’t know what the reason for the shooting was, but from what I have read about Mr. Trammell, the world just lost one of the few good men left on this planet. Please join us in praying for him and his family.
Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to contact the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360 or Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.’
