Baton Rogue is a reminder that there are people who like deep divides. Organized attacks with the intent can not be passed off as anything but murdered. We say empty phrases to solve complex problems. Hate is the driving factor here. There are no phrases that justify the attacking of law enforcement.
But let me throw out a few consequences. You will see police responses slow down. Back up will be required if there is the known presence or suspected threat of violence. The same neighborhood that has the tension between minorities and police will get worse. The police like to go home to their families. There are few that became a police officer with the aspirations of murdering people. But daily police go into confrontations where they have to deescalate situations. This assumptions they go on is that most of the time things get worked out without incident. How many police can throw out the idea that the threat is to who they are responding to?
This shooting and Dallas all involved the general public. Highly accessible areas where several others could have been collateral damage. Why bring the public into the fight? Is the idea someone could hide in with the general public and keep the killing going. None of this changes the narrative. The solving of the death of unarmed citizens was what we are told is the problem. It time that we actually hear the truth of what the solution can happen with violence and where are the Black Life Matters, The People of Oppression, and other peaceful voices condemning these actions.
