It’s not just white cops who oppose groups like Black Lives Matter – it’s all cops. That includes black cops. Don’t forget that one of the police killed in the Black Lives Matter inspired massacre of police in Baton Rouge was black.
Black Lives Matter isn’t just dangerous for police, it’s dangerous for the people the police protect as well – the rest of us. Due to increased scrutiny, police officers are backing off of proactive policing in the face of the relentless venom directed at them on the street and in the media. As a result, violent crime is on the rise.
Back in February, Baltimore Police officer Jay Stalien posted a comment to his Facebook page “I have come to realize something that is still hard for me to understand to this day. The following may be a shock to some coming from an African American.” Among the relevant bits criticizing the arguments of BLM were:
Complaint: Police always targeting us, they always messing with the black man.
Fact: A city where the majority of citizens are black (Baltimore for example) …will ALWAYS have a higher rate of black people getting arrested, it will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting stopped, and will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting killed, and the reason why is because a city with those characteristics will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks committing crime. The statistics will follow the same trend for Asians if you go to China, for Hispanics if you go to Puerto Rico, for whites if you go to Russia, and the list goes on. It’s called Demographics
Complaint: More black people get arrested than “white boys”.
Fact: Black People commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime. Data from the FBI shows that Nationwide, Blacks committed 5,173 homicides in 2014, whites committed 4,367. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined. Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.
Complaint: Blacks are the only ones getting killed by police, or they are killed more.
Fact: As of July 2016, the breakdown of the number of US Citizens killed by Police this year is, 238 White people killed, 123 Black people killed, 79 Hispanics, 69 other/or unknown race.
Here he is shredding BLM in video form, in a new video he posted to his Facebook just a few days ago.
What do you all think? Personally, I think if the people in the BLM movement thought like this man, there would be much fewer problems between the police and the black community.
