[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our society is not just witnessing a war on police, it is experiencing a war on authority, on law and order, and on plain, old fashioned honesty. In the upside down world in which we live, criminals are being put on a pedestal as innocent victims of ‘police brutality’ in an effort to gin up racial animosity and societal unrest, while innocent lives are taken every day at the hands of thugs and other low-lives with hardly a word whispered about their demise.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Facts are twisted and lies are created in order to fit the narrative being pushed. The most flagrant of these lies was in the case of Michael Brown when a police officer was accused of shooting Brown in the back, and also accused by some of the same people of shooting him after Brown was said to raise his hands in the air and beg the officer not to shoot.
Neither of these scenarios was true. But, facts don’t matter to those instigating and participating in these race riots. Propaganda does.
This propaganda was on full display on Wednesday in Baltimore, a city that was the location of the most recent mayhem and violence following the funeral of Freddie Gray.
Five people were shot in East Baltimore. One of the individuals died. Police captured a suspect and escorted him, with hands cuffed behind his back, down the street to their vehicle.
One officer was on either side of the suspect with a hand on his arm. The suspect was walking down the street with no problems and through no physical force of the police. It was a simple and uneventful walk to the car with a perp, that is until the perp saw a news camera.
As they were walking, the suspect suddenly dropped to the ground and started yelling, “My back! My back!” He moaned loudly in pain that obviously came out of nowhere in an effort, no doubt, to make the police look bad and add to the claims of systemic police brutality.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]WATCH the suspect suddenly and inexplicably fall to the ground at the 1:32 mark.
Fortunately for the officers, the entire charade was caught on camera since the cameras were rolling as they were walking and clearly showed no physical force of any kind and no injury to the suspect before he fell to the ground.
But, what if those cameras had not been rolling. What if someone walked up and began filming just as the guy dropped to the ground and began screaming in agony over nothing.
Would the Department of Justice have opened a criminal case against the officers? Would Obama have used it as an opportunity to attack the brave men and women in blue who risk their lives every day? Would Al Sharpton have gone back to Baltimore to add to his coffers as he accused these officers of brutality?
This is the world we are living in, where police officers simply doing their job run the risk of being accused of something they did not do. Even worse, too many are quick to side against the police and for the criminal, even when evidence does not work in the criminal’s favor.
