Following pressure from various police organizations, the Democratic Convention decided to offer a ‘Moment Of Silence’ for fallen officers.
It didn’t go so well as the crowd began yelling, “Black Lives Matter.”
It follows along their chants of “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon” and other hideous acts. We know here at Law Officer that these individual acts do not speak for an entire movement but it is very troublesome when the movement itself never speaks against these acts. Tonight was more of the same.
No one knows more that “Black Lives Matter” than police officers. It is the police that took bullets in the place of Black Lives Matter Supporters in Dallas. It is the police that go into black neighborhoods and arrest the criminals that are victimizing blacks and it is the police that investigate the murders of young black men around our nation.
“Black Lives Matter” to the police. We just wish that Police Lives Mattered enough to stay quiet for 30 seconds.
Law Officer is the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement. This unique facet makes Law Officer much more than just a publishing company but is a true advocate for the profession.
