Real police brutality exists: “We need to pick and choose our battles wisely”

Lauren SouthernRebel Commentator

Black Lives Matter will defend every single shot criminal, every single beat up bad guy and demonize every cop. It's why they've lost the respect of most reasonable people. They don't pick and choose their battles — they take on all of them, whether they were genuine cases of police brutality or not.


People who are against BLM defend most cops. We understand the difficulty of their jobs and when they need to defend their lives.

However the only thing that can set us apart from BLM is ability to see nuance.

The reality is, not every cop is bad, but there are some cops that do abuse their power.

If those of us against BLM don't acknowledge this and point out genuine police brutality when we see it, we are no better than the ideologically motivated groups that refuse to see nuance.

@ John Smith – BLM will not be concerned about Chicago because BLM is not interested in black lives, just in causing civil disruption.

Hey.BLM.How about taking on Chicago.Almost 3 times more blacks will be shot and killed there this year BY OTHER BROTHERS than by all of the Police in the entire United States Combined.How about protesting that.

My only question is why do we still have an illegal immigrant holding office in parliament…
Where is the RCMP to support the laws of this country that they have been sworn to uphold against all enemies foreign and domestic.
This is a crime being committed before our very eyes and our sworn police force stands by and does nothing..??
Shame on them..!!!
Shame on us..!!

My job has a tendency to get me into trouble and people tend to point firearms at me once in a while – it can get a little exciting and at times I have to escalate the “controlled violence” in order to make it home.

So when I come back to Canada – and because self defence in Canada gets you put in jail – I have a few personal policies.

1. I am tired of blm to the point I would never hire a black guy or gal now – just too much potential trouble. And I am really effing tired of the “people of colour” comments all the time. White is a colour – is it not? So – if you are black and a nice person – my apologies – but your folks have turned me into a cautious racist. If the blacks show up anywhere – I now leave.

2. I am so tired of police and their one sided activities that I avoid them with a passion. We no longer have a justice system, we have a legal system – and it seems no matter what happens the cops get off with “time off with pay” and the local citizen goes to jail for doing the same thing – even if the local citizen also “feared for his life”.

I no longer trust anyone who is black and I no longer trust the police. To me it is just too easy to stay out of trouble by avoiding potential trouble.

Black people make up 13% of US population, represent 24% of people killed by cops, but represent 50% of violent crimes like homicides. (Just let it sink in how outrageous the ‘13% brings 50%’ figure is.) This means they’re underrepresented among people killed by cops. Unarmed blacks killed by cops represent only 3% (13 people in 2016) of all people killed by cops, the same percentage as unarmed whites killed by cops, which is in-line with their rate of violent crime. 90% of all murdered black people were murdered by other black people, at a rate 40× that of all black people killed by cops. If “Black Lives Mattered”, the activists would be focusing on the 90% part of the problem.

BLM isn’t a social movement; it’s a domestic terrorist organization run from the top-down by George Soros.

The BLM movement is not only not interested in black lives, it is interested causing a disruption in the US culture and are the main ones behind this hate against the police. It is my opinion that whomever is behind the BLM movement is trying to start a civil war. Bu then, that is just my opinion.

The majority of Black deaths are caused by other Blacks, usually through Gang Wars. BLM was created by Afro Muslims to incite hatred against authority.

Black lives matter, Blue lives matter more.

Wonder why BLM supporters and blacks tend to vote for the big nanny state party, seems to conflict with what they are screaming about.

Maurice i think that is part of the problem as well, filling quotas instead of choosing good candidates.
There are bad cops, but BLM does not give a damn , they only have their bigoted agenda.

There used to be very strict (but admittedly, subjective) criteria for qualifying to be a North West Mounted Police applicant back in the 19th and early 20th century. Among those qualifying requirements was “Dedicated practicing Christian men of courage and of the utmost moral integrity”. Of course, those qualifications were subject to interpretation. But still, they would never fly today, and with the current multicultural makeup of the country, perhaps they shouldn’t. But those qualifications did result in a police force that was second to none, and produce heroic figures like Sargent Sam Steel. Now, it seems that ethnic and gender diversity is a much higher priority than sound judgment, psychological suitability and moral character. It’s too bad that we can’t go back too the old ways of screening, but we can’t. And besides, if we required potential police officers today to meet the same high standards of moral character, sound judgment and courage that police officers of the late 19th and early 20th century did, would we find enough recruits across the whole country to staff a single outpost in Tuktoyaktuk? I’m not sure.

Just as Soros funds & influences BLM – I believe he has “paid” some cops to be the criminals they sometimes are. Soros is a satanist and does things just like Clintoon does – using demonic powers to gain control over those who have allowed their reasoning to deteriorate to that of moronic zombies.
The very fact that law enforcement & military professionals across America are endorsing Trump – does speak volumes to the vast consensus that law & order are being undermined by political corruption. Why is it that the most insignificant crimes garner harsher terms than that of the high end criminals ie Clintoon & Obumer & TruDope?? Treason is a Hi-crime in most all civilized countries – yet the west is adopting tolerance for it. The result of MK Ultra is being witnessed – without any resistance by many. Those who do resist are victimized through lies & intimidation & character assassination.
However – as the silent majority is awaking – globally – we will see more Trump Train type movements – and should the libtards prevail & gain power – bloodshed will be inevitable. The libtards have managed to make everything that IS Right – to Wrong & what is Wrong is now right?? That is sure sign of a very irrational reasoning process and like all rot – soon destroys itself or is destroyed by rational procedure.

I think hiring practice is key. I think just about everybody knows of a cop who shouldn’t be.
I agree that any police abuse is used to paint all cops with the same brush and is an attack on the law enforcement community, and yes BLM is a destabilization tool.
commented 2016-10-02 14:44:33 -0400
yes there is police brutality or as i have seen some bullying tactics in the performance of their duty but on the whole i will support our police force over any BLM agenda whose members seem to be more racists and committing criminal acts then the very police tactics they claim to be protesting about , this is a criminal / terrorist organization whose purpose is to cause riots ,assaults ,arson ,and trying to prevent a trump election victory all with the help of soros and his billions some of which he has been donating to BLM and Obama has made this possible by his gutless and useless performance in the white house ,he never bothers with the facts ,if your black or muslim or both he supports you, i have never heard him denounce one of their actions or stick up for a single police officer.

Cops abuse their authority every day – ask a duck gun owner from High River about that – but that does not change the fact BLM is an apologist for gang culture and was formed as a pressure group to mobilize gangs angaisnt police to escalate a race war in innercity black communities as an excuse for federal controls over local law enforcement – and thus do an end run around the 10th amendment.

Nothing more. BLM is a Soros destabilization tool. The fact police abuse exists gives it a crack in the armor to attack the law enforcement community at a federal level.
