In recent days, it’s been open season on law enforcement officers, most notably the anti-cop massacre in Dallas, Texas where five officers were targeted and murdered in cold blood on Thursday by a Black Lives Matter sympathizer who “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
Just two days after the cop assassinations in Dallas, players from the WNBA Minneapolis Lynx team thought it appropriate to wear Black Lives Matter T-shirts for their pre-game warm-up, and to address the perceived problem of racist cops and “racial profiling” during a press conference—despite this narrative being wholly debunked by statistical evidence and studies.
But the cops who protect these women's safety while they voice their false, divisive, hateful stereotypes about them finally had had enough. Four off-duty police officers working the game at the Target Center court walked off the job, reports Star Tribune.
Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis Police Federation, the union that represents rank-and-file officers, praised them for quitting. “I commend them for it,” he said.
Kroll said the four officers also removed themselves from a list of officers working future games. He did not know who the officers were. “Others said they heard about it and they were not going to work Lynx games,” he said.
Asked if other officers will fill in for those who quit, Kroll said, “If [the players] are going to keep their stance, all officers may refuse to work there.”
The T-shirts worn by the women promoting racial division and vilification of American’s law enforcement—who already sport a target on their backs—read “Change starts with us.” Because, clearly, these women being protected by the very cops they demonize are the true martyrs.
The back of the T-shirts reference the two recent publicized fatal cop shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, both of which are still being investigated for wrongdoing. “Black Lives Matter” is written across the bottom of the shirt.
During a presser prior to the game, the four captains of the Lynx team, Seimone Augustus, Rebekkah Brunson, Maya Moore and Lindsay Whalen, addressed “racial profiling” and the “way too big” divide between law enforcement and the black community.
“One aspect of our team’s culture is accountability,” said Moore. “It’s kept us strong over the years. We, as leaders, try to hold ourselves and each other accountable as an organization.”
“In the wake of the tragedies that have continued to plague our society, we have decided it’s important to take a stand and raise our voices,” added Brunson. “Racial profiling is a problem. Senseless violence is a problem. The divide is way too big between our communities and those who have vowed to protect and serve us.”
Speaking out of both sides of their mouths for cover, they denounced “retaliation” against cops: “We do not, in any way, condone violence against the men and women who serve on our police force,” said Moore. “Senseless violence and retaliation will not bring us peace.”
Law enforcement has been continuously, and wrongfully, vilified by the American left, starting with our president. Even in the midst of police assassinations, the hateful and deceitful Black Lives Matter movement and its willing participants won't stop their divisive rhetoric.
Can anyone really blame these cops for walking out?
