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.
Five Dallas police officers were killed and seven more injured just before 9 p.m. on July 7, as at least two snipers fired on the officers from elevated positions.
In 2012, Bloomberg reported that “Eric Holder, attorney general under President Barack Obama, has prosecuted more government officials for alleged leaks under the World War I-era Espionage Act than all his predecessors combined.” That means that in the months and years leading up to the FBI's inexcusable decision to not recommend the indictment of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information during her time in office, Obama's Justice Department charged and prosecuted people in government for doing exactly what Secretary Clinton did.
As the pretrial motions began Tuesday in the case of the fourth Baltimore police officer to be charged in the 2015 death of Freddie Gray, at least one thing was glaringly obvious: State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby doesn't know when to say when. She is pressing forward in her persecution by prosecution of police officers even when this case has clearly run out of steam.
