After all, President Obama merely compared Black Lives Matter (BLM) to those saintly abolitionists whose contributions to the American experiment turned out so well in Detroit, Memphis, Baltimore, Newark, Camden, Gary, and Rochester...
|All they did was kill a white cop... isn't that what the media, academia and the Obama Administration is encouraging blacks to do? Won't that finally rid America of "implicit bias"?|
Well, not really.
But that's not the point.
The point is, yet another white cop has been murdered ("executed" is perhaps a better term, though not quite an officially state-sanctioned execution yet) by a black person. In this case, it was two black people. [Suspected gunmen identified in killing of veteran KCK police captain, KCTV.com, July 20, 2016]:
Two men are being held in connection with the fatal shooting of a Kansas City, KS police captain, KCTV5 has learned.
Prosecutor Jerry Gorman says Jamaal Lewis and Daqon Sipple, the men in jail in connection with Capt. Robert Melton’s death, may not be charged until Thursday. Police say they are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
Lewis, 20, was booked late Tuesday night in Wyandotte County jail on first-degree murder. Sipple, 18, was booked hours earlier on aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and use of a deadly weapon.
KCTV5 spoke to Clarette Monroe, the mother of Lewis.
She says don’t rush to judgement yet.
“He’s not a bad kid,” Monroe said. “He’s hanging out with a rough crowd. He has no record and has never been arrested. People should not rush to judgment. Don’t do that.”
Jalelisa Sipple, the sister of Daqon Sipple, also spoke to KCTV5. She echoed Monroe's comments.
"The only thing I want people to know is that the picture that's being painted is not actually him," she said. "Which is what most people know, everybody that knows him knows that he's not that kind of kid?"
KCTV5 examined Lewis’ and Sipple’s backgrounds. Searches in Kansas and Missouri revealed backgrounds. However, juvenile records are sealed.
Police said there was a drive-by shooting at Second Street and Edgerton Road about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and officers responded. Melton found both the suspects at 22nd Street and Haskell Avenue about 2 p.m.
Before Melton could get out of his vehicle, someone opened fire through his window, hitting Melton several times, Zeigler said.
Melton, 46, was taken to the University of Kansas Hospital. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him the whole way there. He was pronounced dead a little before 3 p.m.Jamaal and Daqon "didn't do nothing," according to their family members. They just killed a white cop, that's all.
And isn't that what Black Lives Matter seems to be agitating for?
