ALL LIVES MATTER!
Does anyone remember Detective Melvin Santiago? He was a Jersey
City police officer who was shot to death just a month ago, on July
13th. Santiago was white. His killer, Lawrence Campbell, was black.
Does anyone recall Obama appearing before national television and
calling for justice for Officer Santiagos family? Does anyone
recall Eric Holder rushing to Jersey City to see that justice was done?
How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield? He was a Gary, Indiana
police officer who was shot to death on July 6, 2014. Officer
Westerfield was white, his killer, Carl LeEllis Blount, Jr. was
black. where was Obama? Where was Holder?
Officer Perry Renn was an Indianapolis, Indiana police officer
who was shot to death July 5, 2014, the day before Officer
Westerfield was killed. Officer Renn was white. His killer, Major
Davis, was black. I don't recall any mention by Obama about the
untimely death of Officer Renn. and, I doubt that Eric Holder
rushed to Indianapolis to make sure justice was served.
Vermillion Parish Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares was gunned down by
two men June 23, 2014 in Louisiana. Deputy Bares was white. His two
killers, Quintlan Richard and Baylon Taylor were black. was Obama
outraged? Did Eric Holder rush to Louisiana to make sure that the
family of Deputy Bares found justice?
Detective Charles Dinwiddie of the Killen, Texas Police
Department was murdered on May 11, 2014 by Marvin Lewis Guy, a
black male. Officer Dinwiddie was white. Do you recall seeing
anything about that on the news? Certainly, the white citizens of
Killeen didn't take to the streets to loot and burn businesses. Do
you recall any mention of Obama or Holder here?
Then, there is Officer Kevin Jordan of Griffin, Georgia Police
Department. He was gunned down on May 31, 2014. Officer Jordan was
black, his killer, Michael Bowman was white. This was a white man
murdering a black police officer. Where was Jesse Jackson? Where
was "The Reverend" al Sharpton? Was there looting and burning on
the streets of Griffin, Georgia? No, in fact, we don't recall
hearing about this one in the news as well. Why? You can draw your
Over the past 60 days, there have been five reported deaths of
police officers by gunshot in the U.S. Of those, four were white
officers who were murdered by black men. Blacks complain that white
officers treat black men more aggressively on the street. You can
draw your own conclusions on that one, as well.
