The BLM Effect: Police Killings Up 37% Since 2015.

on

118 police officers were killed and over 57,000 were assaulted in the line of duty in 2016.

Has the BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement been part of that rise?

The FBI has released the numbers for 2016 regarding attacks on police, and the numbers aren’t good. The FBI report found that 118 police officers were killed in 2016 and 57,180 were assaulted in the line of duty. In 2015, there were 86 deaths and 50,212 assaults.

From CNS News:

Of the 66 officers killed by criminal acts in 2016:

–62 of the 66 were killed by firearms;

–51 were wearing body armor at the time they were killed;

— 4 were killed intentionally with vehicles;

— 17 were killed in ambushes, 13 were killed answering disturbance calls, and 9 were killed investigating suspicious people or circumstances.

Black Lives Matter must take a large portion of the blame.

Sadly, the rise of violence on police doesn’t come as much of a surprise if you’ve been keeping up with the news over the last couple years. Black Lives Matter has been fomenting violent acts on our police force for a while now. Though I will not claim that all the attacks on police are the fault of BLM, their public displays and hateful rhetoric have escalated things to a dangerous level.

“What do we want? DEAD COPS! When do we want them? NOW!”

It’s getting out of control, but the left and the media keep stoking the flames against our police. Any group that chants “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” should be vilified and outcast. Instead, however, they are praised and put on a pedestal in the main stream media. When will the media and those in the Black Lives Matter movement be held accountable for their actions?

Police aren’t perfect, but most are heroes.

The police force as an entity isn’t perfect. Never has been and never will be. However, the vast majority of police officers are awesome people that are willing to lay their life on the line on a daily basis to keep us safe. Black Lives matter tries to sully every individual police officer with their baseless diatribe despite what the facts say. Are their instances where police officers act foolishly and somebody gets killed that didn’t need to die? Absolutely. Does that mean police officers as a whole are bad and should be target for violence? Absolutely not. That is where the narrative of Black Lives Matter fails. Nobody is defending police officers who do criminal acts, despite what the BLM tries to say. The majority of cases that Black Lives Matter gets angry over are cases where the police officer acted completely within the letter of the law.

Police officers have a right and obligation to protect themselves and to protect the general populous. In my opinion, Black Lives Matter is a domestic terror group that is a direct and present threat to the safety of our police officers. The FBI statistics only solidify my opinion. Black Lives Matter doesn’t want to look for real solutions in the black community, they only want to stoke a race war and destroy our police. Thanks again for your “legacy” Obama.
