Less than a week ago, a violent black supremacist sought to kill as many white people as he could, especially white police officers. He callously murdered 5 policemen and injured many more. It was the worst attack on law enforcement officials in the country’s history (not including September 11th, 2001 in which the country was attacked.)
After enduring the senseless and heartbreaking loss of his fellow officers, Dallas Police Chief David Brown hit back hard at the Black Lives Matter and anti-police protestors that are responsible for inciting the violence. Instead of stooping to the level of hatred that has been hurled at officers around the country, Brown made a passionate and common sense suggestion to the protestors.
“Become a part of the solution,” Brown urged. “We’re hiring. Get off that protest line and put an application in. And we’ll put you in your neighborhood, and we’ll help you resolve some of the problems you’re protesting about.”
Brown’s epic rebuttal to the anti-police protestors puts the ball firmly in their court. If the protestors want real change, they have the opportunity to do something about it. If they truly seek to make their communities safer, then they must do something about it besides inciting violence and blaming the police.
