‘Nancy Drew:’ ‘Apparent Racism’ Results in Harmless Black Lady’s Dying by Police


We’ve already seen Hollywood use fictional stories to paint the police as violent racists, however Wednesday’s episode of the CW’s Nancy Drew may take first place for probably the most over-the-top and racially divisive anti-police storyline. Not solely had been police vilified, however just a few white suspects who aren’t officers had been thrown in as evil members who harassed an harmless black lady for good measure.

Within the episode, “The Siege of the Unseen Specter,” Nancy (Kennedy McMann) is arrested for contempt of court docket and brought to the police station. Whereas there, the doorways instantly lock, all computer systems and telephones shut down, the home windows are blackened, and there’s no approach out of the constructing. A voice from an “arbiter” comes over a speaker and tells Nancy and everybody current that they need to remedy the case of a younger, black lady by the identify of Dolores Barrett who went lacking in 2013.

Nancy wonders why she by no means heard of the case, however quickly the implication is made that the reason being {that a} younger, white lady went lacking the identical week:

Nancy: So, who’s Dolores Barrett?

Fraser: She’s a lacking individuals case Hampton and I labored again in 2013.

Nancy: You had been a policeman?

Fraser: That is the case that made me go away the power, run for city council.

Tamura: Hampton, pull the file. We should always have the onerous copy someplace. Dolores was from… From Portland. Final seen right here in Horseshoe Bay. She, uh, had dinner on the Blue Iris Bar & Grill, after which she vanished. Her mom reported her lacking. 4 months later, Dolores’s empty automotive was discovered, smashed on the backside of a ravine.

Nancy: No physique? No indicators of foul play?

Fraser: Wild animals seemingly made off together with her stays. The coroner dominated an unintentional demise.

Nancy: Why is not this ringing any bells for me? A lacking lady in Horseshoe Bay– that is front-page information. Rose Turnbull went lacking the very same week.

Lady: Rose?!

Nick: The lady you discovered behind a hidden staircase in that warehouse? You had been within the newspaper for that. So, Rose bought all the eye, and Dolores fell by the wayside?

Fraser: Our assets had been stretched too skinny for each searches. I hated that, so I went into coverage.

Nick: Huh. No marvel she wasn’t discovered. Rose goes lacking. Dolores by no means stood an opportunity.

When the present detective in cost, Tamura, asks Nancy’s former flame Nick (Tunji Kasim) a query unrelated to the case, Nick says disdainfully, “Perhaps get again to questioning concerning the lacking black lady who’s been ignored for the final six years.” Tumara replies, “You’re supposing I’m not?” Nick provides, “I’m suggesting that crimes in opposition to black ladies are underreported, under-investigated, and under-solved. So possibly if Dolores had been white, extra folks would have been asking about her. Perhaps they may have discovered her. Perhaps even saved her.”

Conveniently, each suspect concerned within the case simply occurs to be on the police station. And so they additionally occur to be white. Brandon is a person who was formally reported because the final particular person to see Dolores alive. He claims Dolores was drunk when he occurred to see her go away the restaurant she was final seen at, however this finally ends up being confirmed false. Brandon was really on a date with Dolores, they’d a lovers’ quarrel outdoors of the restaurant and he grabbed Dolores’ arm as she tried to go away. He’s additionally married and didn’t need his spouse to search out out concerning the date.

Nick finds proof that Dolores by no means drank in her life so we are able to chalk Brandon as much as being a nasty white man, if not a killer. Former Officer Fraser (who was on obligation through the case), present Officer Hampton, and an area mother named Mitzi are the following dangerous white suspects because the story unfolds:

Fraser: Dispatch bought a name from Mitzi a few black lady driving erratically. She stated Dolores had a ton of money and that she was most likely a drug supplier.

Mitzi: No, no, I did not. I did not. I stated… I stated doable drug supplier. I imply, every-everyone is a doable drug supplier, proper?

Fraser: So, after I pulled Dolores over, and I noticed that wasn’t the case, I let her go. I did not point out it earlier as a result of I did not wish to out Mitzi for… for apparent racism.

Mitzi: What?! I’m… I’m not a racist! Uh… It is the police. The police– they did one thing to that lady. ‘Trigger why else would Hampton have threatened me earlier tonight? Yeah, she instructed me that if I stated I referred to as the cops on Dolores, that it might get out that I weaponized the police in opposition to a black particular person. After which, it might be everywhere in the Web, and that people– they might come after my youngsters, and I am so sorry, however I am a mother.

Hampton: You should have misunderstood me.

Nick discovers that Hampton was on guard obligation the night time Dolores went lacking, and because the stress mounts, he begs her to inform the reality, which she does:

Hampton: Fraser introduced her in that approach.

Fraser: Not one other phrase, Hampton.

Hampton: He stated if I did not cowl for him, he’d be sure that I by no means bought back-up once more.

Fraser: She’s mendacity.

Hampton: Dolores got here in holding her head, sobbing.

Dolores: Please. Please assist me. Please.

Fraser: I wished to name the physician, however Fraser stated, “No. All of them do this. All of them name for his or her moms.” Then Dolores had a seizure! She was bleeding within her head. She died in entrance of us. We panicked. We threw her automotive within the ravine and… Her physique within the ocean.

Ryan: You are the cops!

Fraser: You consider that insane story, actually?

Hampton: I stored the dashcam footage from that night time. Though you instructed me to not. You hit her head in opposition to the automotive proper after you handcuffed her. The video reveals all of it.

Fraser: It was an accident! She was resisting! She pulled away.

Nick: In all probability as a result of she was terrified. As a result of we’re at all times terrified.

Nancy: Brandon, you harassed her. Mitzi, you humiliated her. Are you listening to me? Fraser, you pulled her over with out possible trigger, and also you terrified and assaulted her. Hampton, you left her to die a sluggish and painful demise alone as she cried out for assist in a holding cell. And then you definately lined up her homicide, and also you threw her physique within the ocean.

The road, “All of them cry for his or her moms,” was an apparent reference to the George Floyd case, which was an outrage to most everybody and resulted in a responsible verdict for the officer. And, after all, they inserted Fraser’s determined declare that Dolores was resisting arrest into the dialogue when it’s clear that Fraser was simply an evil racist who took his hate out on an harmless black particular person.

The liberal lecture being that we are able to then assume the identical is true for any officer in actual life who finally ends up having to make use of lethal power on suspects who resist arrest. When in reality, most officers face a life-and-death split-second resolution whereas doing their greatest to guard their group, and it has nothing to do with race in anyway.

However so long as Hollywood and the left preserve pushing these false narratives and make-believe tales, it’s solely going to create additional concern, division, and hate – the very issues the left claims to be combating in opposition to.
