Four white police officers were shot in separate incidents on Sunday in four different cities across the U.S. Out of the 4 shootings, two suspects were Black and two suspects were white. But white supremacist group “Blue Lives Matter” has made a point to focus on the two Black suspects.
On Sunday Nov. 20th, a San Antonio Tx. officer named Ben Marconi was shot and killed by a Black suspect, according to reports. As of now, the suspect is still at large.
On the same day in Sanibel Florida, a 49 year old white man named Jon Webster Hay was arrested for shooting officer Jarred Ciccone.
In St. Louis, Mo., a Black suspect ambushed a police officer sitting in his patrol car. The officer survived, and the suspect was later killed by police. Also in another part of Missouri, in the city of Gladstone, a white male shot and wounded a police officer during a traffic stop. The white suspect was later killed by police.
The media has gone out of it’s way to focus primarily on the shootings that involved the two Black suspects. In fact, most articles that mention the shootings in Gladstone Mo. and Sanibel Fl. committed by the white suspects, quickly mention the shootings by the Black suspects in San Antonio and St. Louis.
The racial hate group Blue Lives Matter have also chose to use social media to engage in their usual selective outrage about these shootings. The Blue Lives Matter movement has been justly criticized for only focusing on cases where Black suspects are accused of retaliating against police officers. Yet they are usually completely silent on the epidemic of white males who kill police officers and an extremely high rate in the U.S.
As a matter of fact, in the past few weeks alone, there have been over 11 police officers killed across the country at the hands of white males.
White supremacists are quick to try and blame “Obama” and “Black Lives Matter”, whenever a Black suspect shoots an officer. But they should be focusing on all the cop killing thugs in their own communities. If they did, more lives of innocent police would be saved.
