I still think the police need to have the "blue flu" in every city that riots, kills cops for fun, etc over wanting the police to stop, well
As a matter of fact, in order to honor the wishes of the rioters, MLK day and week would be a good time for city wide or nationwide "blue flu".
MLK always said it was important to judge people not on the color of their skin but on the content of their character. It could be a time for the
rioters to show the true content of their character.
If leaders tell people who are rioting to show the world they can be peaceful, law abiding, good people, that the police should not profile them or
see them as dangerous
the leadership can tell the rioters to show police and everyone that they are good people. If the rioters in those cities don't want the police, they
need to take a day/week to show the police they are not dangerous.
To show solidarity with the rioters and to give them a chance, the police can have a pre-planned blue flu day/week.
When DeBlasio told his biracial son to beware of the police, he was encouraging racial strife and hatred for police, I don't blame the police for
turning their back on the very person who should be a true leader and look for ways to end racial strife, rather than make it worse.
The reality is of all black people murdered/killed each year in the US
about 1% are killed by police
of all white people murdered/killed each year in the US
about 1% are killed by police
The figures that are being perpetuated by the media etc are real, because far more/way more/way way more black people are murdered/killed each year
than white people. So the 1% who are killed by police, well more blacks than whites are killed numerically, that is true.
However, well over 95% of all people murdered/killed each year in the US are murdered/killed by someone of their own race.
So more blacks kill blacks each year
than whites kill whites
making the overall number of murders higher for blacks than for whites, that too is true.
But the other truth is still that of all black people murdered/killed each year that about 1% are killed by police and well over 95% are killed by
and of all white people murdered/killed each year about 1% are killed by police and well over 95% are killed by other whites.
So the police, according to statistics are not discriminating based on the percentage of overall murders/killings by race.
Therefore, DeBlasio was wrong to tell his son what he did, it was inflammatory against the reality of what the police face daily, if his son
behaves in a law abiding way, he has nothing to fear. DeBlasio incited racial hatred against his very own employees.
(check my other posts for stats/the mods have chastised me about cut and paste from my old posts, they don't want me repeating the posts with proof -
so either check it out yourself - or look at my old posts, checking it out yourself is the much better option)
