Thursday’s sniper attack on Dallas police officers sent a chill down America’s spine. It showed just how far the anti-police sentiment has been allowed to permeate through this country by racist groups and the liberal politicians who champion their causes and provide them a platform to spew their hatred.
As a direct result of anti-cop rhetoric, the rate at which cops have been killed is at an incredibly high rate. According to USA Today, the number of cops shot and killed in the United States is 44% higher than it was at the same time last year. These numbers do not even include the most recent cop attacks in Georgia, Missouri, or Tennessee. Those numbers would certainly push the rate up near 50%.
As of Thursday the number of cop murders stands at 26, compared to 18 at this time last year. Out of those 26 murders, 11 of the deaths came as the result of an ambush.
Our country needs prayer and our country needs action. The current administration has cultivated such an environment of hate and mistrust that it will take years or decades to recover from. This is not a gun issue. This is a hatred and racist issue, pure and simple.
Either All Lives Matter or no lives matter. We are all Americans and we are all equal. We will not be divided.
