“Yes, the nation is once again horrified to learn another black man tragically lost his life after an altercation with police. Alton Sterling was shot and killed Tuesday just after midnight in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Listen to the liberal narrative and you’ll hear that Sterling was killed for selling CDs outside of a Triple S Food Mart. There’s a bit more to the story, of course.
Police were called after Sterling had been threatening a homeless man with a firearm for asking him if he had any spare change. The homeless man had made the 911 call. After police arrived, Sterling had resisted arrest, and appeared to make a grab for his firearm at one point. This is still disputable, however. In the video footage of the shooting, you can hear the officer shout “He’s got a gun!” and “if you f—king move, I swear to God.” One of the officers then says something unintelligible, and two shots are fired.
So who is Alton Sterling? For starters, liberals should know he possessed an illegal firearm. As a felon with a lengthy rap sheet, Sterling is legally prohibited from possessing a firearm. Police records show Sterling had been a member of the Bloods gang, and had a list of offenses including battery, assault, drugs and weapons charges, and owed $25,000 in child support. He was also a registered pedophile, having impregnated a 14-year-old girl when he was 20. The media, by contrast, has portrayed him as a loving father of five.” Said Alan West.
The media also fails to report that more white people are shot by the police than blacks and yet 40% of the crime in the US is committed my blacks or non-whites, while they are only about 12% of the population.
The current President isn’t helping the situation, in fact it would seem with him running his mouth without all the facts, he is inciting lawlessness, in my opinion. Then this morning as I’m trying to comprehend that another officer died while I safely slept last night, I watch Obama’s blah, blah, blah, and then go straight to the “if people couldn’t get their hands on these types of weapons” bull. I wanted to throw something at the TV screen.
Did anyone watching the video or live stream of one of the shooters and the officers having the shootout using the building pillar as cover notice the shooter’s stance and actions? It appeared to me this was a well-trained shooter. In my opinion, one doesn’t learn to behave in this manner by watching a movie or television.
Whatever the investigation learns, my heart is still bleeding blue for the Dallas PD and their families. All of this brings back memories of me being the one at home waiting for my husband’s end of shift. Always in the back of our heads there was that tiny bit of fear that his life could be taken that night. Trusting in his training and his brothers in blue to have is back got me through more than one night during his police career. There is nothing however that can prepare one for the knock on the door or the phone call.
My heart is bleeding red, white and blue for this nation as I watch it crumble from the top down into lawlessness and humans with no regard for life. I’m old enough to remember all the reasons people have had for these problems. At one time it was because of movies, then television, then rock and roll, then video games and for years it has been guns.
When our own leaders break laws, rules, and oaths, what more can we expect from our citizens. The only differences I see in most of our leaders and thugs on the streets is the homes they live in and the amount of money they make. Our leaders have their own armed security teams, while thugs threaten law abiding people’s security.
Be steadfast law officers! Know that there are more of us that support you in your work than the ones that hate you. We will have your six. We will salute you. We will stand with you.
