Imagine you are the officer behind Blake – You have not even seconds to decide what to do. Are you going to wait to possibly get shot?
(TCP News) Kenosha Wisconsin police shot a man, who happens to be black – and subsequently all hell broke loose in the city, go figure. Now I’m not minimizing what happened, but at the same time, if one is black, and if one is shot by police (who are white), riots will ensue. On the other hand, if the man shot had been white, there would have been little if any outcry whatsoever at all.
When was the last time you encountered a media blitz about a white person being shot by police? Widespread riots and destruction? Let me think, oh right, you didn’t see it because it did NOT happen!
I wrote about this recently in my article, Obama’s NOT so Subtle Marching Orders to George Floyd Protestors:
Police are more likely to shoot a white person than a black one.
“James’ study is a follow-up to one in which she found active police officers, military personnel and the general public took longer to shoot black suspects than white or Hispanic suspects.” (SOURCE)
Hmmmm, I wonder why that is? Maybe because they know that shooting anyone that is black for any reason may well result in being strung up and hung out to dry, legitimacy of the shooting does not matter. They are black, that’s all that matters, and you are toast, extra crispy.
Lastly, consider the following:
George Floyd killed by police, INSTANT reaction nationwide.
Justine Damond, murdered by police. Took 8 months to arrest the officer. NO national media coverage.
John Geer, killed by police. Took 23 months to arrest the officer. NO national media coverage.
George Floyd is black.
Justine Damond and John Geer are white.
When George Floyd was killed, it sparked riots all over the U.S. People jumped to conclusions about what happened in that incident before all the information was made available. Such as the fact that Floyd had enough drugs in his system that his death could have been ruled as an overdose. The very same scenario is playing out in the Kenosha shooting.
In the video I have seen such as the one below, the video is of course edited – as in parts of it are missing. What evidence is contained in the missing parts? What are we not supposed to see here? Where are the police body cam videos? (Update – apparently Kenosha police do not have any body cams)
Perhaps people should wait to make a judgment until all the information comes out on the incident. A second video shows Blake fighting with police (he was also tazed, but that failed to stop him). As police have their weapons drawn and aimed at Blake telling him to stop, he walks to the driver’s side of his vehicle and reaches into the vehicle.
Now I’m not suggesting Blake deserved to be shot, but common sense would tell you that when police have their weapons drawn and they issue a command, you listen and do as you are told. What you don’t do is give them reason to shoot you.
Imagine you are the officer behind Blake who is reaching into his vehicle in front of you, and you cannot see what he is reaching for. You have not even seconds to decide what to do. Are you going to wait to possibly get shot? Knifed?
This wasn’t some unknown random man to the Kenosha police, Blake was known and has a criminal record. In fact, there was (is) a current arrest warrant for Blake for domestic abuse/sexual assault.
During the incident, Blake had taken a woman’s keys and refused to give them back, so police were called. The Left’s narrative that Blake was “breaking up a fight” is total B.S.
Blake admitted that he had a knife and one was found on the driver’s side floorboard of his vehicle. Just what was he going to do with said knife do you suppose?
There is a steep and unfortunate cost to this incident; Jacob Blake is now paralyzed from the waist down. And yet this entire “incident” could have been avoided if Blake had followed simple police directives.
As I mentioned before, Blake being shot would have sparked little to no notice would he have been white. This shooting was again; same as the Minneapolis killing of George Floyd – used as an excuse to riot, destroy property, loot, and assault innocent people.
In the video below, you can see some of the damage done.
A 71-year-old man attempting to defend a place of business and fend off rioters was hit in the head with a plastic bottle filled with concrete – whoever did this broke the man’s jaw in two places.
In addition to all of this, the Milwaukee Bucks decided that because of the shooting of Jacob Blake; the Bucks weren’t going to bother to show up for their own NBA game. This is just another pathetic instance of so-called social justice, and I hope this stunt hits the Bucks right where it hurts – in their collective wallet.
When are people going to wake up and realize that violence, rioting, looting, and killing change nothing, and only serve to worsen the problems we all face? When are people going to wake up and realize that their support of Marxist terrorists Black Lives Matter is anti-American and counter-productive to our society and yes our culture – including black culture.
