police shootings

Fanning the Flames

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Nobody in the national media ever calls attention to justified officer involved shootings. Public safety requires armed police, who risk their lives in those frightening moments when they confront dangerous criminals. Cops are the front-line troops who protect us all from crime. It is irresponsible — and demonstrably false — for Biden and his allies to accuse heroic law-enforcement officers of being agents of “systemic racism,” just for the sake of winning an election. Every American must hope that voters of all races will reject this hateful message.

This is a war, and Black Lives Matter is the enemy

Sheriff David Clarke, The Hill

We have several forces internal and external attacking our rule of law: ISIS, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street – just the most recent iterations of the elements who brand themselves as unique but seek the same revolutionary aim: take down the West, the philosophy of equality before the law, and replace it with their authority, their rules, their hate.

As Police Officers Are Hunted, One Touching Moment At The RNC Gives Us Hope

Brandon Morse, RedState

A few young black people decided to pray over an officer before the convention started, asking God for protection and helping us to love each other. When the prayer was done, one of the young men said "God bless you, bro."

Black Lives Matter Is Responsible For These Police Shootings (According to Liberal Logic)

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

The Left blames conservatives and conservative groups whenever something bad happens, but refuses to blame Black Lives Matter for police shootings. Maybe everybody should focus on the actual bad guy instead of casting blanket assertions against groups. I just don’t think the left is willing to do that except in cases like this.
