Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people in North Carolina, mostly blacks, have been staging protests over the shooting of a black man by a black police officer.
As in earlier similar cases, the shooting victim, Keith Scott, refused to comply with police orders. Two officers on the scene ordered Scott to drop a handgun he was holding, but he refused.
The incident in Ferguson in which black teen Michael Brown was shot and killed was caused because he refused to comply to the orders of Police Officer Darren Wilson and his physical assault against Wilson.
The death of Eric Garner by New York Police Officers was initially caused because Garner failed to comply with police orders and physically resisted police officers.
The death of John Crawford by police in a Beavercreek, Ohio, Walmart was caused by Crawford’s failure to comply with police officers who ordered him to drop the gun he had in his hands. Instead, Crawford faced and pointed the realistic toy gun at police.
Yet, in all of these instances, and others, the families of the victims along with black activists, refuse to accept the truth of what happened and claim the victim was murdered because he was black. They end up staging protests, many of which have turned violent. They destroy private property and in some cases have caused businesses to close their doors and put workers out of work because of their damage and looting.
In the case of Keith Scott, a gun was recovered from the scene, yet family and friends, most of which were NOT at the scene claim that he was holding a book he was reading and not a gun. Why would someone get out of their car when stopped by the police with a book in their hand instead of leaving the book on the car seat? The statements made by family and others just doesn’t make sense, but again, it’s not about the evidence, it’s about the racial hatred that boils up among many blacks.
Most black activists are nothing more than racial bigots who are full of hate and see nothing but racial hate everywhere they look, regardless if it is there or not.
If black activists really want to protest the killing of blacks, they need to look at the black on black violence happening in their own neighborhoods. I live in northern Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati, Ohio and it seems nearly every day that I hear on the news of a black being shot by another black in the Cincinnati metro area. Some days, there are multiple black on black shootings. Far more blacks are attacked by other blacks than by whites, Hispanics, Asians or all other ethnic groups combined, but I don’t see any city-wide protests over blacks killing other blacks.
What’s happening in North Carolina demonstrates the hypocrisy of those protesting. They are protesting against violence but they themselves are the ones now committing the violence. In fact, one protester has been shot by another protester who is protesting the police shooting of Scott. That makes no sense whatsoever. It does show the anger and blind hatred inside many of those staging the violent protests. And when police order them to disperse, they have been just a defiant as Michael Brown, Eric Garner, John Crawford and Keith Scott, all of who would still be alive if only they had complied with police to begin with. When will they learn?
