‘Black Lives Matter’ Mocks Police, Says Depts Use ‘Tearjerker’ Press Conferences After Officers Are Shot

The DC chapter of ‘Black Lives Matter’ publicly mocked police officers injured in the line-of-duty this week after a series of violent shootings in the nation’s capital; accusing departments of orchestrating “tearjerker” press conferences to create public sympathy.

The chapter claimed, “being black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”


“This is the point we’ve been making for months,” the group tweeted Sunday night. “Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tear jerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

“This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong,” the group wrote.

“We’ve seen time and again that doesn’t work,” it continues. “Policing and the system under which police work exists is bound to the enslavement, degradation, and murder of Black people and was never meant to protect us, but instead to exploit our bodies and labor to fill prisons and bolster capitalism. No amount of feel-good videos can deny that truth – no dancing, ice cream peddling, dance videos, BBQ eating COPAGANDA can change that.”
