President Obama today made a big deal of awarding Medals of Valor to law enforcement officers who have performed acts of heroism.
Right, the same Obama who is making their lives impossible by throwing in with the #blacklivesmatter crowd and suggesting that police racism is endemic and offending officers will be prosecuted. The result being that officers have pulled back and more black lives are being ended.
FBI Director James Comey, who seems to operate independently of the White House, thank God, attributed the increase to the “Ferguson effect,” a reference of course to the justified 2014 homicide by a police officer of a young black man who tried to take his gun from him, presumably to kill him with it.
When the officer was exonerated in November, Obama empathized with the misplaced outrage in the black community. “There are Americans who agree with (the decision), and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry,” Obama said. “It’s an understandable reaction.”
And so the murder rate went up in the first quarter of 2015 and has not declined. A report issued last week showed that murder rates have soared this year in major cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas.
Have a look at this nonsense from today, if you can bare it.
