I have to wonder what color the sky is in some people’s world. The media fans the flames of racial hatred for ratings and money and situations like what happened in Louisiana, Minnesota, and Dallas take center stage. In the case of two shootings of black men on Wednesday, no one takes the time to point out that a well-trained police officer, in ANY situation, assumes the worst possible scenario. That is how they stay alive.
The black man in Minnesota was not a victim of racial hatred. He was a victim of being stupid. When you tell an officer, you have a gun, and the officer tells you to keep your hands in sight, and you don’t, that is stupid.
Most think the tragedy in Dallas was caused by the shootings I alluded to earlier. What really was bone-chilling was when the Dallas Police Chief took to the podium and gave a statement that should have shaken Barack Obama off his foundation:
“All I know is that this must stop — this divisiveness between our police and our citizens,” said Brown. “We don’t feel much support most days. Let’s not make today most days. Please, we need your support to be able to protect you from men like these, who carried out this tragic, tragic event.”
Twelve officers were shot in Dallas, and a total of five officers were killed at the protest over police violence in downtown Dallas, sending screaming crowds scrambling for shelter and spurring an investigation into who was behind the ambush.
Watch it here:
Any time a human life is lost is a tragedy, but my God, don’t people realize that life is not a movie or video game and death is forever? Wouldn’t you like to know what the shooters in Dallas hoped to accomplish by killing people totally unrelated to what they are upset about?
