When the white NZ cop was murdered by a Black man was there a movement of Cop Lives Matter.
fireman is killed doing his job of firefighting, that's tragic. But you don't need to have a demonstration about it.
Even if fifty
fireman lose their lives, killed in fifty
different fires in different parts of the world, that's still not a reason for a demonstration and a "firemens lives matter"
But if ONE fireman burns an african-americans house down with him in it, ...and LIES about it, ...AND the system let's him get away scott-free THEN
it's appropriate to shout out about it. Because that is obviously not right. Do I need to explain why?
If fifty firemen let the houses of fifty black-americans burn down with them inside, and nothing is being done for the forty-nine people THEN of course it is entirely appropriate to start protesting about it and even rioting for the fiftieth.
It's no excuse to say 'well the guy was selling contraband cigarettes' or 'well, he was a career criminal and had been in a porn film.'
Do I need to explain why?
If his house is on fire, the fire department has a duty to put out that fire and rescue him.
Do I need to spell it out any further?
Fire fighters fight fires, NOT the people whose house is on fire, even if they have previously broken the law.
Nor even if previously they had been convicted of arson.
Er... is any of this getting through?
are there to 'protect and serve'
the whole community. Not just the white community. Not just people without a criminal record.
If cops believe afro-americans are statistically more prone to criminality, therefore more worthy of suspicion, and therefore they are more justified in being trigger happy and brutal against ALL Afro-americans, then you have a problem.
And you had better start dealing with it, not denying it.
If you think the way to deal with it is to come down EVEN HARDER on ALL afro-americans, don't be suprised if there is a violent blow-back on ALL whites. You have chosen that.
