Black Lives Matter have been making outrageous demands in Chicago, including the restriction of law enforcement. Claiming that it will make them feel safer, BLM got exactly what they wanted and the bodies continue to pile up.
Why you ask? Because black on black violence is far more deadly than any police officer could ever do, and that’s a fact. As they continue to call for the demilitarization and disbandment of police, Chicago has become one of the most deadly areas in the U.S.
Largely a Democratic city, Chicago has become the hub for murder and leftist mentality for the past 80 years. Now that the department has been pressured to lessen their presence on the streets, it’s been reported that Chicago PD is down roughly 12,000 officers. That leaves only about 900 detectives to solve over 2500 shootings that have been left unsolved.
Blue Lives Matter reports that after just one year of less “proactive policing” in Chicago, around 3,000 people, mostly black, have been shot already. Disturbingly, shootings are up 47 percent this year from the same time in 2015, and it’s not the police doing the shooting. In fact, pedestrian stops have decreased a whopping 82 percent, yet more blacks bodies are piling up.
With all their demands being met, BLM is learning that their biggest threat isn’t police officers, but their own people.
Blue Lives Matter points out, in a hypothetical situation, how the media could be to blame for twisting stories and forcing police to back off.
“Imagine for a moment that you are a police officer, and you see a group of known drug dealers blocking a sidewalk. Nearby residents can’t get through without walking in the street to get around them. You go up to talk to the people about blocking the sidewalk, and they greet you by cursing at you and telling you to leave. You could leave, which doesn’t solve the problem and allows these drug dealers to control the neighborhood, so instead you tell them to disperse. The dealers refuse to comply and tell you that they aren’t going anywhere.
You can try to talk to them some more, but you could talk until you are blue in the face and not get any reasonable response. You are left with no other reasonable option besides arresting them for not complying with your order to disperse. One of the dealers is a felon with a gun on him and he knows that you will find the gun if arrest him, so he reacts by drawing his gun on you. You respond by shooting him to defend your life. The headline in the paper the next day is about how you shot a man for standing on the sidewalk.”
While people with influence continue to amp up the BLM movement, demanding less police involvement, black on black violence continues to skyrocket to 91%. African Americans are 160 times more likely to be killed by their own than any cop.
Isn’t It really time BLM start to place the blame where it belongs and stop believing the lies the left has fed them?
