There has been a nationwide campaign by the black population in this country, against the police. In the beginning it was touted as seeking justice over white police killing “innocent unarmed black males.”

To begin with the two that it all started over was the Brown boy in Ferguson and then the Garner case in Staten Island. In both cases Grand Juries refused to indict.

In both cases the victims were not “innocent” as claimed. Both were criminals and both resisted arrest. If they had been innocent and if they had not resisted arrest the Brown boy should still be alive. Mr. Garner probably could not be. He died from a heart attack and not being choked to death as all the black people allege.

Our President, the Attorney General , Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farakhan, the NAACP, the New Black Panthers, Oprah Winfrey and many others are pushing black demonstrations across the country and in New York City in particular. NYC Mayor DeBlasio is supporting it and making claims that all this started hundreds of years ago. Enmasse, they are charging police racism.

The truth is there was no racism involved in either case. These people just have an agenda and that excuse is as good as they can find. In the Garner case in NYC the police detail that took him down was being supervised by a uniformed black female officer. She was a sergeant and she was calling the shots. The city Mayor is siding with the blacks and he is egging them on. He has made several statements on television blaming police racism. How can this be when the 30,000 member NYC police force is only 40% white? Half of the force is black but they are being blamed for being racist against blacks. Does that make sense anyone?

All those so called leaders keep egging them on and saying demonstration is healthy. Oh really? Black mobs in NYC for the last two days have been chanting. The leader asks what do we want? Then the crowd answers with DEAD COPS! The leader asks, when do we want it? The crowd replies over and over, NOW!

The police are not amused. They are signing statements that if they die or get killed that they do not want the Mayor to attend the funeral. Who can blame them?

I wonder how much the people will like it if one Friday afternoon the police announce that they are taking time off for the remainder of the weekend. Take off from Friday at 4:00 P.M. and not return until after Monday morning at 8:00 A.M. Do you suppose anyone will miss them?

I believe if sanity does not emerge soon things may get so far out of control that it can’t be stopped. Is that what Obama, Holder and Sharpton really want? It could give Obama the excuse to declare Martial Law and then seize total control power over the country. As such he could wield whatever power he wanted and no one could stop him. Just a thought.
