BLACK LIVES MATTER: IF THEY WERE SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR MISSION?

Perhaps Black Lives Matter needs to quit interrupting political debates and promoting class warfare, chaos, and communist-style revolution to deliver a potent message …

The person in the picture ran from the police after being stopped as a suspect in a previous shooting. In an escape attempt, the suspect allegedly faced off with a police officer and was shot and killed. The suspect's alleged gun was found at the scene.

So many of these deaths start with suspects running from law enforcement officials  and when cornered or confronted they either struggle or make threatening moves. I can understand a police officer being afraid for their lives -- especially when a number of officers have been executed in the streets, so why escalate the tension knowing that outcomes can be fatal?

Tensions on both sides are running high. Running away from law enforcement and making suspicious movements has become deadly. It is time to teach people how to interact safely and successfully with the authorities to prevent problems. So, instead of marching after the fact, some of these ministers can go to the streets to spread the word.

You can bet that if these armed thugs get shot by the police, their families will lawyer-up, cry police brutality, claim excessive force, and sue the city for millions. Their mommies will say they are misunderstood, victims of the system, and were turning their lives around. Activists and agitators will march in protest – possibly sparking looting, rioting, and the destruction of public and private property. Note that they robbed a Muslim meat market.

Baltimore Plagued with Robberies by Young Black Men 

The FBI is searching for a group of serial robbers in Baltimore they call the "Shotgun Four" for repeated armed robberies with a sawed-off shotgun at groceries and restaurants across the city. According to WBALTV, investigators believe the young black men, who appear to be in their late teens and/or early twenties, are tied to at least 10 robberies since March.

Abdul Aziz, the owner of that store, New Bazar Halal Meat, provided the FBI with the clearest pictures yet of three of them (seen above) thanks to the many cameras inside his establishment -- nearly 12. .

Baltimore can boast of being a focal point last year for the Black Lives Matter movement and the death of Freddie Gray, but it can also boast a rising homicide rate that rivals New York City.

While there is historical precedent to fear police officers, it is now time to recognize that they are there to keep the public safe and should not be required to escalate every event into a life-threatening situation.

As for the agitators and activists, enough of the craziness on the backs of those who have died due to their own poor choices and actions. By all means investigate and prosecute bad cops -- but don't tar the entire law enforcement community with the broad brush of racism and lawlessness; because it is not true.

Time to remove politics and the political agenda from policing.
