After 5 of his officers were killed, Dallas Police Chief David Brown announced he and his family have received credibly death threats. horrible messages from Black Lives Matters supporters and others came pouring in “almost immediately.”
Anti-police extremists are furious that Brown’s message of safety and supporting police came from a Police Chief who happens to be black.
This is insane:
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said that he and his family received death threats “almost immediately after” a gunman fatally shot five police officers and wounded nine others at a Black Lives Matter rally last week.
“We’re taking them all as credible, whether they can be confirmed or not,” Brown told reporters at a Monday press conference, noting that other officers in the department have received anonymous threats as well.
The police chief said the language of the threats was disturbing enough that the department is taking them all “very seriously,” “for the sake of our families.”
During negotiations with police officers on Friday, suspected gunman Micah Johnson, an Army veteran, allegedly said that he wanted to kill white people, particularly cops. Johnson was killed by a bomb-toting robot after conversations with hostage negotiators broke down.[…]
Brown said that while the Dallas community, mayor and other city officials have given his department “all the support we need,” he believes Americans demand too much of local police departments.
“We’re asking cops to do too much in this country. We are. We’re just asking us to do too much,” he said. “Every societal failure, we put it off on the cops to solve. Not enough mental health funding. Let the cop handle it. Not enough drug addiction funding. Let’s give it to the cops.”
“Here in Dallas, we’ve got a loose dog problem,” Brown went on. “Let’s have the cops chase loose dogs. You know, schools fail. Give it to the cops. Seventy percent of the African-American community is being raised by single women. Let’s give it to the cops to solve that, as well. That’s too much to ask. Policing was never meant to solve all of those problems.”
These criminals that advocate for the murder of our police officers deserve to be brought to justice. Cops risk their lives everyday while trying to keep our neighborhoods safe, and it’s time that BLM is stopped before more attacks occur. At this point, there is no reason why not to consider BLM a domestic terrorist organization.
