Yes, all lives matter. People had better be careful what they wish for so vehemently. The police are going to become tired of being people’s political pawns. They are not going to feel compelled to thrust themselves into their difficult jobs if they are constantly be berated and wrongly vilified by the media and the black lives matter so-called movement (and I don’t blame the police for this stance). I am not belittling the recent police shootings because they seem to be completely unjustified, however, this is not the norm. Thousands of African Americans across this country are being shot every year by other African Americans. I am so tired of watching the heartbroken mothers that have lost their beautiful children to another senseless crime. We need to intervene in these situations to help these communities. This movement is a false narrative being peddled by people trying to make things worse than they are when it comes to the police. They should be focusing on the violence in their own backyards instead of pretending like it is not occurring on a daily basis. People are not going to want to join the force and this will create an unstable, uncivilized, and frightening society where none of us are going to want to live. The police are the only barrier between a civilized law-abiding and an uncivilized lawless society.

But you have to show Americans, the American people that this is the last time it’s going to happen.” — Charles Krauthammer
