When I grew up, I was inculcated with the notion that ALL lives mattered. Not just black ones. . . .
I’m insulted. And offended. When I hear some Black Lives Matter folks calling on their brethren to “kill police.” Let’s have a show of hands — who agrees with these people??
When I was a States Attorney, I worked with the police every day. Hundreds of them. You know what? Most were good guys (a few gals) (see my post of 3/20/14). Sure – there were occasional bad apples (and you deal with them) but most were just doing their job. A pretty good job. Of protecting the public. Thus, I stand behind the police. I stand behind that thin blue line.
I would invite all of you to stand behind the police in your community. And for Mayor de Blasio of New York and the Black Lives Matters folks who urge violence — if you won’t stand behind the police, when the ISIS (or bad guy) bullets start flying — please stand in front of them.
