If you have not had the time to check out the website called Killed by Police, I strongly recommend it. There, you will see people killed by police officers and they include whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and other nationalities. The website provides names, photos, and locations of the individuals killed.
Since January 1st of 2015, until May 12th of 2015, there have been 420 people killed by police. This does not mean that every individual was “innocent” or gave police no reason to kill the victim. It is to point out that unlike what we are hearing in the media, it’s not just black people who are being killed by the wrong end of a police officer’s gun. All ethnicities are being killed by law enforcement officials.
This article is not to blame or denigrate law enforcement. It is actually to blame and denigrate the media for their half-assed reporting, reporting that makes one sit up and take notice for the obvious bias. It is clear, when we view statistics and specific individual cases (like those listed at Killed by Police), that there is a problem, but unlike what lying black leaders and the media would have us believe, neither white people or police officers are out “hunting” blacks and police officers shoot and kill people of all races yearly, not simply black people.
This article only addresses the issue of people killed by police officers. It does not go into the tremendous amount of black on white crime, which completely eclipses the amount of white on black crime. Black on white crime is a daily occurrence in America and most of it is never reported in the media. That is left to people like Colin Flaherty (“White Girl Bleed a Lot” and “Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry”), who routinely presents videos of black people giving whites a huge butt-kicking (normally because when blacks take on whites, it’s usually done as a group). Whites have been injured and even killed, but when the media does take the time to report it, races of the perpetrators (as well as victims) are often left out. When the media is forced to show pictures of the perpetrators, the ethnicity of the victim(s) is normally left out, leaving the viewer/reader to wonder who they beat the crap out of.
In today’s world – ever since Mr. Obama became president – there has been a clear indulgence in using the race card and a seeming encouragement to blacks to mess America up. This is usually done through some form of violence, which of course, is now also being blamed on whites in general.
I cannot help but wonder what would happen if the media truthfully reported on every incident where a police officer(s) ended up killing a person of any ethnicity? What if David Johnson‘s death by police was highlighted in the media the same way that Freddie Gray’s, Mike Brown’s, and Trayvon Martin’s deaths were highlighted in that same media, in the same way?
What if ALL 420 deaths by police were equally highlighted by the media that seems to resolutely refuse to highlight a police-related death unless the victim happened to be black? What if Dillon Taylor‘s death by a police officer (who happened to be a person of color), gained as much notoriety as Mike Brown?
It can’t and won’t happen because the media’s job right now is to help exacerbate the racial animus. This can only be done by making it appear as though white people AND law enforcement officers are out there on the streets, hunting blacks only. If the media constantly plays and replays this narrative, it will very soon become truth. In fact, many believe it to be the truth already.
Because of this, any time a black person is killed by a police officer, it doesn’t even matter if the black person was trying to grab the officer’s weapon or if they attempting to fight the officer. The only thing that matters is that the officer went “overboard” and shot and killed the perpetrator, who happened to be black. This is quickly becoming a “crime” that should be punished, say black trash leaders like Al Sharpton. Even Mr. Obama has stated on several occasions that the police are wrong for taking black lives.
The false meme “BlackLivesMatter” is helping to set race relations back to a time well before the 60s. All lives matter, but as long as the media highlights only one part of the issue, folks will never see that people of all races are being killed by police. Most people will not take the time to look for the truth and most likely wouldn’t know what to do if they found it.
To the left, it’s very important to create more racial tension. Keeping society on edge is important. It creates a constant distraction so that society itself does not see what the politicians are doing behind the scenes. It’s exactly what any good magician does.
Being killed by a police officer is NOT just a black thing. It touches the lives of people from all races. Unfortunately, you’d never know that by reading the papers or watching the news.
