Determined as ever to be sure that no one forgets “Black Lives Matter,” during the week that Americans celebrate police and their families for the sacrifices made to be sure that we are all safe in this country, Crazy Uncle Joe Biden decided to take a swipe at those very same officers claiming that they bore some of the responsibility for distrust of the profession.
The statement read:
This year, we also recognize that in many of our communities, especially Black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several Black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement. These deaths have resulted in a profound fear, trauma, pain, and exhaustion for many Black and brown Americans, and the resulting breakdown in trust between law enforcement and the communities they have sworn to protect and serve ultimately makes officers’ jobs harder and more dangerous as well.
In order to rebuild that trust, our State, local, and Federal Government and law enforcement agencies must protect constitutional rights, ensure accountability for misconduct, and embrace policing that reflects community values and ensures community safety. These approaches benefit those who wear the badge and those who count on their protection.
No mention of what some of the people who died were doing to attract law enforcement attention in the first place. Nor is there any mention of the number of law enforcement officers killed at the hands of criminals, regardless of color, in a given year. Just blame for a problem that would disappear except those reminders that it exists pop up on a daily basis almost as if “Black Lives Matter” has its own marketing campaign.
