I don’t hate anyone. I hate arrogance and racism. Now if you want to translate that to people then I will say I hate arrogance in Black cops and I hate racism in Black cops.

When I sent you a link on something I wrote about BLM it was clear enough to point out that I don’t like what they are doing. But if you want to say I condone their actions then so be it.

I criticize Black people before I criticize law enforcement. But quite frankly, they both need criticizing. If you want to praise all law enforcement I have a true story for you:

A San Francisco cop was shot and killed in the line of duty about ten years ago. My brother had a lady friend who heard of this cop gunned down and was in tears over it. When I asked my brother why she was so upset he told me the officer who was married and had kids, was also her best customer, if you catch my drift.

I believe 95% of cops do above average police work. But I can’t tell which of the 95% are turning a blind eye to the shenanigans of the 5%.

And why is it that BLM is responsible for the rise in Chicago crime but not in other areas? This is the silliest part of blaming BLM.

I am opposed to badges for brains syndrome. And Law enforcement should not be looking for more respect than any one else.

But I’ll make a deal with you. I will clean up the crime in my community if you clean up the crimes of law enforcement.
