The photo has been shared by almost 100,000 times in less than a day. It has the following caption:
“North Carolina State Troopers having a word of fellowship and prayer before being deployed on the streets of Charlotte. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they work to protect us and help the city rebuild.”
The situation in Charlotte, and the rest of the country, is out of control.
The media quickly jumped to conclusions in the shooting of Keith Scott, and riot took hold in the city.
Protests and riots have been happening before all the facts were in and it has been happening with increased frequency in the country. Any time an officer-involved shooting of a black man happens, protests ensue before the facts are in. In many cases, even after the facts prove that the was justified.
These movements, particularly the Black Lives Matter movement, are not about the cases.
These shootings are used to inflame racial tensions. A leaked memo proved that billionaire left-wing globalist George Soros’ Open Society Foundations planned to use these incidents to push for a national police force.
Dallas Police Department Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, President of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, filed a federal complaint against Soros, Black Lives Matter figures, and others for inciting violence and riots — including President Obama and Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
Each of these riots in response to officer-involved shootings fracture this country further.
