Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 228 civilians having been shot, 31 of whom were Black, as of March 30, 2020.
No mention of how many of the 31 black men shot were pointing guns at or actively shooting at cops or charging them with some other weapon. Also no mention of the statistical fact that blacks are about 13% of the population and that 31 is 13.5% of 228. In other words, in 2020 at least blacks are shot by police at a rate that mirrors their percentage of the overall population.
Despite the grandiose and sweeping name "Black Lives Matter", and woe to you if you say "All Lives Matter" cuz that is racist, the movement apparently doesn't care about "black lives". It only cares about some black lives that have significant political utility, like the killing of George Floyd.
For example, there have been protests in nearby Fort Wayne, again allegedly in response to the Floyd killing. But in the news last week was this story:
16-year-old charged as adult in drug deal robbery gone bad
Two men were charged, 16 year old Xavier Walker and 19 year old Ronnie Miles, Jr. for killing 19 year old Jaden Lee Diaz Nelson.
Here are the accused...
|Ronnie Miles Jr. and Xavier Walker|
|Jaden Diaz Lee Nelson|
He is just another dead black guy killed by two other black guys.
No one cares but his mama.
Nelson was apparently a drug dealer and was selling to Walker and Miles. The sale went bad, guns came out and Nelson was killed.
You can't use his death to advance a political agenda so he just ends up in the ground without notice.
Black Lives Matter is a scam, a phony movement with an intentionally dishonest name. They don't care about black lives at all, they only care about using deaths to advance their far left agenda.
