Barack Obama is always trying to prove how smart he is, and all he ends up doing is showing how stupid he is, speaking about these shootings of two black men.
First, he must tell everyone, no matter what their race is, that they must obey every command from a police officer and not resist arrest or they just might end up dead. Also, why is it that only shootings of black citizens make the news or get commented on by politicians, but shootings of any other race never get mentioned?
Citing statistics that show that blacks are more likely to be killed by police officers and receive harsher sentences than their white counterparts, Obama said it is “incumbent on all of us to say we can do better than this.”
A White House task force on better policing tactics issued recommendations last year on how to improve community relations with law enforcement.
Obama encouraged local police forces to adopt the practices outlined by the task force, saying that less distrust of police would help to keep officers safe and lead to less deadly shootings by authorities.
Critics of the push to reform local police tactics have charged that Obama has not shown enough concern about police officers who are shot in the line of duty.
Obama repeatedly stressed that he believes that most police officers do their jobs without bias and that addressing complaints about police brutality would not undermine law enforcement.
“When people say black lives matter, that doesn’t mean blue lives don’t matter. It just means that all lives matter, but right now the big concern is the fact that data shows black folks are more vulnerable to these kinds of attacks,” he said.
I agree that it’s not a black issue. I, however, have a problem when two big police officers, who already overwhelmed a suspect and are assumed-to-be-well-trained, still shoot a gun without a clear motivation. If they go by reflection every time, we have no reason to trust police for our safety. Some said that police need excessive force to control crime, but you don’t need it all the time.
There are more officers on the ground who never confronted dangerous situations than those dealing with heavy crimes. Police become too excessive and bully.
Nobody should be asking Obama anything about anything because he knows nothing. Would you want Obama to give you advice on anything like this? Share your voice below in the comment section.
