I agree, all lives matter. My point is why bring so much importance to BLM? By including them in the argument you are making them something they are not, important. BLM is is also hyperbolic.
I agree with you, but I think the issue here is that not only is BLM hyperbolic, it is also hypocritical. Perhas the pic below can help with understanding how this is so:
Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton’s handcuffs were used for a special purpose Tuesday night — to arrest the man accused of killing her. After a nine-day manhunt, local law enforcement captured Markeith Loyd in an abandoned house in West Orlando’s Carver Shores at 7 p.m.
Wearing red pants, a gray shirt and his hands cuffed behind his back, Loyd exclaimed, “They beat me up! They beat me up!” to nearby cameras. His bloodied face appeared beaten with swollen eyes and lips.
Loyd faces two counts of first-degree murder with a firearm and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in Dixon and her fetus’ deaths, and attempted first degree murder in the shooting of Dixon’s 26-year-old brother, Ronald Stewart, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Tuesday night. Charges in Clayton’s death have not yet been announced.
