The Black Lives Matter crowd has used the police shootings of two black men to accuse all white people, all police officers, and especially all white police officers of systematic racism and targeting black men for murder. In a previous article, The New American reported on what is known about Alton Sterling's death and the events leading up to it. But what about Philando Castile, who was shot and killed by a police officer in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, while — according to his girlfriend — he was just reaching for his wallet?
Is this the effort that will finally break through the teflon coating of the Clinton dynasty? By Bob Adelmann
Perhaps the solution to the crescendo of armed violence between police and protesters is the privatization of law enforcement.
This study's conclusions refute persuasively the very foundation upon which the BLM movement is built. They are likely to change nothing.
Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton made waves this weekend during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer when she stated that there is systemic racism within the criminal justice system and that white people need to be more receptive to that reality. But while Clinton’s statements reiterate the talking points that have been touted by the Obama administration and recited by the media in recent years, they are inconsistent with the data on race and police shootings. Meanwhile, purporting that police are racist only serves to place a larger target on the backs of police officers.
In an ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted from July 6-7, a majority of those polled disapproved of the FBI’s recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime for her handling of e-mail while she was secretary of state.
There is even more bad news for the cabal of climate alarmists and crony capitalists hoping to abuse the legal system to silence dissenters. The rogue prosecutors behind the persecution of climate-change skeptics became embroiled in yet another scandal last week, this time getting caught conspiring to evade freedom of information laws to conceal their scheming from public scrutiny.
Following the tragic Dallas police shooting, in which five Dallas police officers were fatally shot by sniper fire, it is now known that perpetrator Micah Johnson was a member of the radical anti-cop Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named after the founder of the old Black Panther Party.
When Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officers attempted to arrest Alton Sterling just after midnight on Tuesday for brandishing a firearm and threatening a homeless man, he resisted arrest and fought with the officers. Before it was over, he was dead and the nation was — again — embroiled in protests and violence as the mainstream media, social media, and social justice warriors decried the shooting as the “murder” of a “good man.”
After two unrelated police shootings on Tuesday and Wednesday, many in both public office and the mainstream media have been quick to pass judgment on not only the officers involved, but the entire system of independent police departments across the country. Both shootings — happening 1,200 miles and almost two days apart — involved armed black men and white police officers.
