A Brief History
In previous articles we discussed the myth that police in America are somehow gunning down innocent black males for no apparent reason. In Tulsa, Oklahoma on September 16, an unarmed black man, 40 year old Terrence Crutcher, was shot and killed by a white female police officer. Crutcher would not obey police orders to stop and get on the ground, but instead walked with his hands up to his car, despite being told not to approach the car. When he got to the car, his hands came down and it is unclear if he tried to reach into the car or his pocket when the cop shot him. Though Crutcher was unarmed, police found PCP in the car, and Crutcher had a long and sordid criminal history, including illegally shooting a gun from a car and he had 8 (count ‘em, 8) open warrants for his arrest. Despite being portrayed as a wonderful human being by disingenuous family and friends, Crutcher was a criminal and like so many other “victims” of “police violence” DID NOT OBEY THE POLICE WHEN AT GUNPOINT! Seriously, how stupid can a person be to fail to do as they are ordered when cops have their guns on them???
Meanwhile on September 20, 2016 another black male, Keith Lamont Scott (age 43 ) was also shot and killed by police, only this time the dead man was holding a pistol at the time and had refused to drop it after being repeatedly told to drop the gun. Again, this is not rocket science! When police tell you to do or not do something, especially if they are pointing guns at you, it would be prudent to do what they say! Witnesses confirm hearing officers giving loud verbal warnings before firing. The officer that fired the fatal shot was an African-American officer, although an obviously lying witness asserted that a “bald white police officer” had actually shot Scott and that Scott was holding a book, not a gun. Family and friends later insisted Scott had been holding a book, although they were not even at the scene when the shooting occurred. This often repeated lie inflamed anti-police animosity and resulted in multiple days of protest and violence in Charlotte, with at least 1 African-American killed in the violence. Of course, family and friends of Scott described him as a peaceful family man, but in fact Scott was another career criminal, with crimes as serious as assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor assault as well as aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. This description makes his DUI and evading arrest escapades look tame. Scott even served 7 years in prison, meaning the gun he was in possession of when shot constituted a felony crime in itself.
Why does the media keep repeating Crutcher had his hands up when he was shot? That is a lie! Why do they keep showing other people making that assertion without correcting them? Why the emphasis on blindly accepting the lie about Scott not having a gun? And like a robotically predictable machine Hillary Clinton refers to these shootings as “intolerable.” Hey Hillary, how would you perform in the place of those police officers? Have you ever gone through “shoot-don’t shoot” exercises? If the self described leaders of the black communities truly wanted to save the lives of black men, perhaps they should preach the gospel of DOING WHAT THE POLICE TELL YOU TO DO SO YOU DON’T GET SHOT.
The sickening reaction of cop hating politicians and media types only inflames the mob mentality of those advocating “retaliation” against police, and plenty of that is going on, just watch the “protesters” and what they say. Are we surprised that after 20 years of declining violent crime, murders and shootings are on the rise while cops are scared to death of doing their job, afraid of getting railroaded by idiot politicians and the media?
Yes, the Tulsa cop is already indicted for manslaughter and faces 4 years (minimum) to life in prison for making a split second decision when she thought her life might be in jeopardy. All because a criminal creep would not obey the police.
Question for students (and subscribers): Was it right for this police officer to be indicted? Please let us know in the comments section below this article.
