Violent Criminals, Not the Police, Pose the Real Threat to African-Americans
The Black Lives Matter movement has dangerously distorted the reality of policing, crime, and race. It is other black civilians, not the police, who overwhelmingly perpetrate violence in poor, minority communities. Sadly, the fierce hostility currently directed at law enforcement in the streets has led officers to back off of proactive policing in the neighborhoods that need it most. The result has been an even greater loss of black lives to gun violence.
