On Monday, Officer Brian Moore of the NYPD succumbed to his injuries after being shot in the face by a young black man who had a bone to pick with police after the Baltimore riots continued to escalate.
Later in the day on Monday, President Obama was speaking at a My Brother’s Keeper event, and instead of taking the time to pay tribute to Moore and other police officers who risk their lives to protect us every day, Obama chose to slam them.
In his speech, Obama whined about the “racism” in American law enforcement that makes it impossible for black people to succeed. Ignoring the fact that he made it to the highest office in the land as a black man, Obama proceeded to blame U.S. police for all the problems in the black community.
According to Conservative Tribune, he started his speech by saying he has heard many stories of “young men being stopped and put on the ground for no reason.” Instead of blaming the looters for the violent Baltimore riots, Obama said the riots were escalating due to a “sense of unfairness and powerlessness” in the black community that they have thanks to U.S. police.
Obama made no mention of Moore, or the many other police officers who have lost their lives thanks to the chaos caused by these riots.
The president gave this speech just six days after he addressed the American public on live television and blamed U.S. police across the country for the Baltimore riots, instead of the looters themselves.
How are American police supposed to do their jobs effectively when even our own president does not support them?
