London Black Lives Matter leader on Dallas killings: ‘What do they expect?’
There is some radical comedian in the UK that heads Black Lives Matter cause who seems to be emotionless when it comes to the deadly slaughter of the 5 cops in Dallas.
A ringleader of London’s Black Lives Matter, Gary McFarlane took a very calloused stand on the horrific Dallas incident by commenting “What do they expect?”
This is just the kind of rhetoric this country needs listening to a crackpot like him and others that foster this kind of deadly attacks.
I have a question for McFarlane and others like him. Because of what happened to the 5 cops in Dallas, should all the cops in the USA go on a shooting rampage with all the black in the country???? He seemed to have forgotten; 2 wrongs do not make 1 right.
McFarlane also refers to what has been going on for over 300 years. I have repeated this a 1,000 times. If we ALL want to live in the past, there will never be a resolution to all of the racial upheaval we have in this country.
We can not change what happened yesterday but if we want to, we can set a new course of what is going to happen tomorrow. There has to be a concerted effort on all sides of the issue to find a solution. Peaceful demonstratiing should be part of it but rioting – burning and killing is not the solution.
The black community consistently claims that more blacks are killed by cops than whites. Not so.
In the U.S. a total of 509 citizens have been killed this year alone by police. The body count for the previous year stands at a grand total of 990 people shot dead, according to the Washington Post. As the below infographic from Statista shows, most of those killed by police are male and white. 123 of those shot were Black Americans. This is a relatively high share, keeping in mind that close to 13 percent of Americans belong to that ethnic group.
Is it fair to say that we have maybe 1/2 of 1% of the cops that are poorly trained – gun happy – abuse their authority and are not fit for their positions? Absolutely Yes. It is up to the governing agencies to, not hire these types of people – weed them out if on the payroll and if they break the law, they should found guilty and given the appropriate sentence.
In the same token, no one from any race should give the cops a reason to engage them. If they do, they must fully co-operate.
Let us not loose sight of the fact that the people in blue are out to protect ALL the people in the USA, not just one race or the other. They need the full co-operation and support of the general public in order to do their job, not some nuts case on a speaker preaching; what do they expect that only fuels the fire of hatred.
We need Obama and the other black leaders to step up and admonish their people for their parts in this unlawful incidents. There are problems on all sides of the fence.
Grim times are ahead if these matters are not squelched and quickly.
