Race

Officers Down!

Two police officers were murdered by a gang member in the small town of Brookhaven, Mississippi.

Saturday morning, two police officers were murdered by a gang member in the small town of Brookhaven, Mississippi.

It is notable that in the Washington Post coverage the next morning, and in that of other Leftmedia sources, there was no mention of the race of the officers or the assailant, and no photo of the assailant indicating race.

But if the black assailant had been shot to death rather than the white police officers, this event would have been national news with the race of the assailant and the officers front and center in that coverage. Clearly, however, the murder of two white cops by a black assailant doesn’t fit the WaPo’s disgraceful race-bait political narrative, and the lack of any mention of race in the paper’s coverage of this tragedy exposes that narrative.

As I noted last year in “The Second Amendment and Violence — A Bullet Point Reality Check,” in regard to interracial murders, the overwhelming number are black on white. If there is an epidemic of hate crime in America, it is not white-on-black but black-on-white and, of statistically greater significance, black-on-black. Astoundingly, black assailants commit more than 90% of murders of black victims.

According to the latest FBI data on homicides, black males make up 6% of the U.S. population but account for 39% of homicides.

Democrat politicos know that “Black Lives Matter” is just a diversionary political sound bite. If they actually cared about the “cause-and-effect” association between the epidemic of violence on the urban poverty plantations created by their catastrophically failed government welfare-state programs, they would adopt different policies.

Instead, whenever a black person is killed by non-black police officers, leftists are quick to blame it on “racist cops.”

In Brookhaven, Cpl. Zach Moak and Patrolman James White were shot to death by a violent black gang member — a product of Democrat social policies. Recently, Cpl. Moak posted a photo to social media with a note he recently wrote to comfort a young relative: “Cohen, while you’re sleeping, I will always be watching over you.”

Cpl. Moak and Patrolman White, RIP.
