For those who don't know, a mentally ill African American male with a history of arrests gunned down two NYPD officers after shooting and critically wounding his ex-girlfriend. Righty's and others are using this as an opportunity to blame Peaceful Protesters, President Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, because a mentally ill person with a gun killed people. I don't know weather to laugh or cry. So I'll just chant USA! USA! USA!
Shamming and blaming is a lot easier than addressing legitimate issues.
Those who are trying to connect the murders of the officers with the thousands of articulate and peaceful protestors across America are being deliberately misleading in a cynical and selfish effort to turn public sentiment against the protestors. This is the same strategy used when trying to lump in the violence and looting with the legitimate protestors, who have disavowed that behavior. They hope to misdirect public attention and emotion in order to stop the protests and the progressive changes that have already resulted. Shaming and blaming is a lot easier than addressing legitimate claims.For those of you who just don't understand why African Americans don't trust some (not to be confused with all) Police, we are not anti ALL police, we are anti police who abuse their power. The main ones complaining about painting cops with a broad bush are the same ones painting protestors and African Americans with a broad brush. The Police union blaming the Mayor and supporters of the Brown and Garner families is like blaming all police for their deaths! No thoughtful person does that.
In other news, the Ferguson Prosecutor doesn't mind that witnesses lied before the grand jury, and YorkThe New York Times is calling for Bush and Company to be investigated and prosecuted for torture.
