The Black Lives Matter movement might not want to admit it, but because of them, it has become significantly more dangerous to be a police officer. By fueling anti-police rhetoric and painting them all as racist murderers, they have encouraged attacks on men and women who serve their communities as police. And all of this has happened on Obama’s watch, the man who was supposed to be the healer of racial division in this country. Instead, he only made it worse.
In Fresno, a California Highway Patrol officer was patrolling when he noticed a crowd of people surrounding a white Chevrolet Tahoe doing donuts in a parking lot. The officer got out of his car to confront the driver, who sped off. So the officer got back in his vehicle to follow the driver. And it was then that the crowd began attacking the officer.
The California Highway Patrol is asking anyone with information about the attack on this officer to call Fresno police at 559-621-7000, or to call Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867 (STOP).
Investigators report that there has been a surge in street racing in Fresno over the weekend, with most people involved seemingly out-of-towners, posting videos of their street racing around the city using the hashtag #Bay2Fresno.
Of course, the million dollar question is, would this have turned violent so quickly had the Black Lives Matter movement not been inflaming anti-police tension every change they get?
