Well it has happened again, another black man kills a cop, but where is the outrage, where are the protests, is there an epidemic of blacks killing cops in this country? I don’t expect to see any outrage or protests, because in today’s upside down society the criminal, the bad guy, is the one that seems to get all the sympathy, the cops, the good guys, are the one’s being treated like the criminals.
In May of 1971 Officer’s Joseph Plagentini and Waverly Jones were gunned down while responding to a fake 911 call by three black gunmen laying in wait.
In January of 1972 Officer’s Rocco Laurie and Gregory Foster were gunned down by three Black Liberation Army members, shot in the back as they were on patrol.
In April of 1972 Officer Phillip Cardillo was gunned down by a gang of black men when he responded to a fake 911 call at a Nation of Islam Mosque.
In February of 1988 police officer Eddie Byrne, just 22 years old was gunned down by four black men, on orders by a black drug dealer named Howard “Pappy” Mason.
Now, in December of 2014 two officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill, were gunned down in their squad car by a lone black gunman. Liu, 32, a newlywed of only two months, had seven years on the force; Ramos, 40, dad to two sons, had two years on the job.
These murders happened in New York City, but there were many more around the country. Police Commissioner of New York City William Bratton said, “No warning, no provocation, they were quite simply assassinated, targeted for their uniform.” These murders were in retaliation for Eric Garner and Michael Brown, the two criminals who died while resisting arrest. Eric Garner and Michael Brown had a chance, they would be alive today if they had only followed the cops orders, what chance did those two officers have, none.
Black leaders are quick to condemn the police when a black criminal dies, but where are they when a cop is killed, not a peep. Over the past month we have heard protesters shouting “Black lives matter,” why don’t the lives of cops matter? Cops are there to protect the community, while black criminals destroy a community, where is the justice.
Here is a novel idea for the black leaders, instead of protesting when a black criminal dies, why don’t you teach young black men not to be criminals. Communities would be safer, jails would not be over crowded and lives would be saved. Making martyrs out of criminals will only make way for more criminals.
Black leaders keep shouting that there is an epidemic of police killing young black men, which makes as much sense as saying that there is an epidemic of black men killing cops. Black leaders refuse to accept the fact the majority of crimes are committed by blacks, and you wonder why people profile. When you pick-up a newspaper or watch the news on TV and 90% of the criminals you see are black, you can’t’ blame people for profiling, I do, and I don’t feel guilty doing it, it’s better to be safe than dead.
