[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We’ve reached a sad day in America when those who risk their lives every day to protect and serve, who leave their homes and loved ones for their daily tour not sure if they will even return, are denigrated by individuals as high up as the President of the United States and constantly attacked in the media and by the left for being “collectively racist,” accused of abuse of power and targeting and killing black people on the street simply because of the color of heir skin.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Police officers now must second guess their every move for fear of being charged with criminal activity for simply doing their job.
That’s not to say that there are no dirty cops out there. Cops are human, too. There are dirty players in many fields, including politicians who present themselves as clean as the driven snow as they target, harass, and intimidate individuals for possessing a different political ideology (See Barack Obama and the IRS scandal.)
But, as usual, politicians like Barack Obama and divisive haters like Al “Tax Evader” Sharpton hold themselves to a different set of rules.
Following just about any incident in which a suspect dies while in police custody, regardless of the actual facts surrounding the circumstance, Obama has spoken out. He has accused the police of both “acting stupidly” and of being a bunch of racists. However, the one time we rarely, if ever, hear Obama speak out is when a police officer dies in the line of duty.
These deaths go unnoticed and unmentioned, such as the death of 27-year police veteran Sonny Kim, who lost his life in the line of duty at the age of 48.
After a 911 call, Officer Kim was responded with fellow officers to reports of a man on the streets acting erratically and waving a gun. When he arrived on the scene in the Madisonville neighborhood of Cincinnati, the suspect, identified as Trepierre Hummons, engaged the officers in a gun battle. Multiple shots were fired and, in the end, both Officer Kim and Hummons were dead.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Hummons, according to his social media, was both a rapper and a cop hater. He posted a message to his friends on Facebook prior to his shootout with police, which would lead one to believe that it was all part of a plan.
As Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell spoke about the death of Kim, he said, We lost one of our best today. Our hearts are broken.”

The nation should mourn together every time a police officer dies in the line of duty. But, their deaths, again, go largely unnoticed and underreported. Their grieving loved ones and community are not comforted by the usual suspects who are so quick to label all police as racist, vicious killers when a black suspect dies in custody or when they don’t like the tactics used to subdue and control a situation.
The lowlife who killed the officer is not slammed in the media or lambasted by the likes of Al Sharpton. The national news cameras do not go into their communities to see how the people are dealing with their loss.
No, the media, the president, and the loudmouths in the racial grievance industry who profit off of strife are silent.
May Officer Kim and all those who risk their lives in service to their communities rest in peace.
