Can’t argue this:
Ron Hickman, Harris County Sheriff, said they would investigate whether Harris was motivated by anger over recent police killings of black men elsewhere in the United States.
Several days before the killing a caller to an internet radio show based in Texas had called for the “lynching” of white people, and the killing of police officers, to “turn the tide”.
He said: “I think that’s something that we have to keep an eye on. The general climate of that kind of rhetoric can be influential on people to do things like this.
“We’ve heard black lives matter. All lives matter. Well, cops’ lives matter, too. So why don’t we just drop the qualifier and say lives matter.
“As far as we know Deputy Goforth had no previous contact with the suspect, and it appears at the outset to be clearly unprovoked.”
Just like late 2014 when these self-appointed “leaders” chanted about killing cops in New York and then some maniac did just that, the Black Lives Matters clown are still calling for the murder of police.
Traffic disruptions and loud messages aren’t the only things memorable about Saturday’s Black Lives Matter march to the gates of the Minnesota State Fair.
One of the chants heard from protesters is being called “disgusting” by rank and file St. Paul Police officers. Police Federation President Dave Titus says the threatening refrain is divisive, dangerous and won’t lead to improved police relations.
By many accounts, Saturday’s march was a peaceful gathering. Although it was intended to disrupt leisure to deliver the group’s message of justice for those killed at the hands of police.
“We weren’t surprised it was peaceful, but we were glad everything worked out right,” March organizer Rashad Turner said.
But along the way, protesters broke into a pointed refrain that has St. Paul police officers upset.
Marchers chanted in unison, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”
What officers and many others find offensive is also protected free speech. But in this particular case what is ironic is that those voicing the chant were also being protected by very officers targeted.
“Statements and chants like that are just ignorant – I find it absolutely disgusting,” Officer Titus said.
Titus called the protester’s chant both dangerous and outrageous. All the more so Titus says, because it came just hours after a Texas deputy was gunned down in cold blood.
“I don’t think chanting or singing what’s basically promoting killing police officers is peaceful,” Titus said.
This nonsense might stop if we had some actual leadership. But the Democrats side with these lunatics and pander to them, so what can you expect?
