THIS picture of a protestor is being deemed as ‘legendary’ as a woman in a dress stands calmly while 2 police officers in full riot gear approach her in a rush. It’s suppose to represent the ‘peaceful #BlackLivesMatter movement. But WHAT I tell show you NEXT tells a completely different story…
One tweet on Sunday even showed the picture and said:‘Baton Rouge PD looks ridiculous. I never wore so much armor in combat and this is their own community’ . I guess sitting here from the safety of a living room, me or anyone else can say it looks ridiculous. But for a number of police officers, their riot gear may be saving their lives. Sunday the #BlackLivesMatter protesters grew so violent in Minnesota that the St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell provided the following statment:
“Last night, really was the first time in my 28 years as a police officer, that I had observed the level of violence that was directed towards public servants,” said St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell in a press conference on Sunday morning. “It’s really a disgrace. Protesters last night turned into criminals. I’m absolutely disgusted by the actions of some. We will not tolerate it.”
I know he and the St Paul Police force is prepared to deal with anything. But the ‘peaceful’ BLM protesters raised such havoc it surprised them. From shutting down Interstate 94 to hitting police with whatever they could find from glass, bricks, rocks, Molotov cocktails, firecrackers and even concrete. Police responded with smoke bombs, pepper spray and tear gas but it was already too late… Just before 10pm one officer had a concrete block dropped on his head, fracturing his spine. That could be permanent… so much for the #BlackLivesMatter ‘peaceful movement’ rhetoric. These adults need REAL parents to take them over their knee and teach them how to be civilized. These ain’t no Martin Luther King Jr’s. HE was a man… how enraged he would be to watch people use his name to be such cowards and criminals. Disgusting!!!
