I have been filled with too much pain and emotion to share my concerns and outrage in any coherent manner over the past few weeks. But here it goes.
Where was MoveOn.org, NAACP, and Black Lives Matter when Alton Sterling, the criminal shot while fighting against arrest in Baton Rouge, joined the Crips? Why didn’t they help this callous and dead-beat dad with the irresponsible $25,000 he owed in back child-support for his 5 children? Why did these “leaders” refuse to mentor this soulless predator who had robbed and assaulted black folks in his community non-stop for the past 20 years?
Here is the answer: They were too busy blaming the Police who are the Front-Line Defenders of freedom, liberty and justice in the very communities who have now risen up against them. One thing these riot-promoters have gotten right is their request for civilians’ cooperation, to be compliant, when stopped by Law Enforcement. Even Dallas Chief, David
Brown, recently told the media that the problem is not racism, but rather people who are refusing to be compliant when stopped by Law Enforcement. After looking at many reports here in Bergen & Passaic County, I found that to be true here as well.
Chief Brown further expounded that fact: “To protesters in the streets, he suggested channeling frustration into public service: ‘We’re hiring. Get off that protest line and put an application in. And we’ll put you in your neighborhood, and we will help you resolve some of the problems you’re protesting about.’” (NYT 07/12/2016)
When we look at the paid rioters (yes that is what they are), can you find one among them who is a part of the solution? The NAACP came out today saying the US government must defund police departments accused of racism. Really? One Chicago activist publically demanded the expulsion of ALL police from the city of Chicago. Really? Now, that would be
The Leftist agitators are not interested in facts. They are stuck in their mindset of resentment and maintaining power. They offer no real solutions, only baseless blame and criminal retribution. Cops, just like our teachers, spend countless hours participating in Cultural
Diversity, Active Diffusion Strategies, and countless other courses to become more sensitive and “culturally competent”. We are hog-tying and strangling them with all these rules and polices when the answer lies within each of us to control our behavior, words and attitudes-Not
I ask everyone to PLEASE show your support to our Law Enforcement today and every day. Thank them, wear a blue ribbon, write an article, or help people understand the proper protocol when approached by police like my Daddy did when I was only 8 years old. Please do NOT allow our Cops to leave their families each day thinking, as Baton Rouge Officer Montrell
Jackson wrote days before he was gunned down by a coward: “I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me.”
