Last night very crappy night for law enforcement and for gun owners, because I guarantee gun grabbers will try to use this incident to push gun control.
Let’s start at the beginning.
Tuesday morning July 5, Alton Sterling was shot and killed by two white cops in Louisiana early.
Let’s take a quick look at what we know about that shooting, which happened to be captured in 2 separate cell phone videos. Sterling was a 37 year old black man who was currently on probation. He was a convicted sex offender (sex with a minor). Had priors for domestic battery, unauthorized entry, aggravated battery, criminal damage to property, and for failing to register as a sex offender. He had served 5 years in prison for possession of drugs and an illegal gun.
At the time of the incident, he was selling CDs in front of a convenience store where he got into an altercation with someone, during which he pulled out a gun prompting someone to call the cops.
He was physically described by the caller to the cops.
The cops got there and contacted Sterling because he matched the description. Sterling refused to comply, got tased twice, then tackled.
During the physical struggle with the two officers, one officer discovered the gun in Sterling’s pocket and announced “he’s got a gun!”
The other officer drew his gun and pointed it at sterling and said “hey bro, you fucking move and I swear to God!”
Sterling continued to fight, and in one of the two videos he can be seen reaching toward his right hip despite the officer attempting to control his hand.
The officer fires, shooting him several times, in the chest, not the head as many have claimed. Immediately after the shooting, in one of the 2 videos, one of the cops can be seen removing a gun from Sterling’s right front pants pocket.
So, let’s get this straight, this is the asshole, an idiot who played a huge roll in his own demise, that Black Lives Matter has decided to defend and protest for.
Black Lives Matter social media accounts blew up again. They began screaming about the racist cops murdering another young black man. All the normal BS.
At 11:10 am on July 6th, this image was posted on Facebook.
I first saw it 5 hours after it had been posted. I reported it and I shared it on my FB page asking folks to help get it removed.
It has been reported thousands of times over the last several days, yet Facebook refuses to remove it saying it does not violate the community standards against promoting violence.
Are you freaking kidding me??? How does that image, an image depicting one person
standing behind another, and cutting that person’s throat with a knife, how does that possibly NOT violate those standards?
Then last night, July 7, Dallas police were working a Black Lives Matter protest, because as we all know, nothing could possibly go wrong at a Black Lives Matter protest.
This was a protest for Alton Sterling.
Four gunmen, completely unprovoked, opened fire on the cops. In total, 10 cops were shot, and at this time, 5 of them have died.
Yet, despite all the bullshit rhetoric spewed by all the racist, cop haters from the lowliest Black Lives Matter moron all the way up to Barack Obama, those horrible evil cops, who just had 5 of their brothers murdered, they took the 3 of the 4 suspects into custody, alive, resisting every urge that I know they had, to end those worthless sacks of crap where they stood. The fourth died in a shootout with the cops.
I really am at a loss for words to describe how I feel right now.
First, Black Lives Matter is a terrorist group. They meet every single criteria for it as laid out by the FBI. The following is the FBI’s definition of terrorism:
“The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”
It is about damned time they officially be labeled as a terrorist organization.
Secondly, Facebook needs to be held culpable in the deaths of those officers. Their complete refusal to remove images and posts calling for the murder of police allowed the people who committed this act to spread their agenda. Facebook is helping terrorists spread their agenda. They need to be held accountable.
Lastly, President Obama bears some guilt in this whole situation as well. He has fanned the flames of cop hate and racism since he took office. Hell, a few months ago, he had invited members of Black Lives Matter to the white house where he praised them. Just yesterday, he was publicly commenting about the Alton Sterling shooting. How long until we hear him make a statement denouncing Black Lives Matter? How long until we hear him name these officers who were murdered in cold blood by a group of racist black men? I’m sure as hell not holding my breath. That is a long wait for a train that history tells me aint coming.
