point being the BLM folks are like the sound of one hand clapping when they should have come out with outrage that one of their own gunned down a law enforcement officer.....and they uttered nary a word - a fine group, that

Sorry man but "black" cops aren't black. They are blue. Uncle toms who have sold out and are working for the man to destroy the black community.  If your not part of "the community" you are part of the problem and therefore fair game for bad actors in
The community.

I disagree.  I was going to break down this statement by points but it is too unstable to survive the analysis.

Did I forget my sarcasm smileys again. Some folks read things and take them literally.  Ok. disclaimer: The above is not my own personal opinion but seems to be consistent with feelings and life in the hood.

Let's take "Pookey" who is a crack dealer, petty criminal and strong arm robber.  He can get you a TV if you need one but he can also steal your TV or beat up the owner of the convenience store where you shop.  You have heard the phrase "snitches get stitches". I.e. Don't rat on people. Well Pookey and his associates come down hard on good hard working people who live in low income communities and who call the police to report crimes. When Pookey shoots a cop in broad daylight and continues to walk down the street you don't point him out or help the cops in any way  You let the cops handle it because either Pookey or one of his associates will take it personally. 

That's all I am saying. It's really sad in the inner city and much different than anything folks in the burbs might consider normal but it is their reality. Law of the concrete jungle.

 I can tell you almost everyone at the last 2 stations I was assigned to, wore body armor under their turn out gear when called out to "the community". I was shot twice in the back while trying to stabilize a kid hit by a car. The Torrance PD and LA County Sheriff Deputies responding with us shot and killed the shooter. Fortunately the body armor stopped the 380 slugs, still left huge bruises and hurt like hell. Turned out the kid was run over by a "blood" because he was wearing "the wrong color" shirt. The SOB that shot me was the cousin of the turd that hit the kid. 

I promised Shelia, my wife, I'd never stop and render aid in a questionable area after I retired. I will stick to that, I hate thinking this way, but, I value my life more than a stranger in a bad area.

perhaps you should have posted a "disclaimer" as the 1st words of your not-so-funny post - what were you thinking (never mind, I don't care to know)

Failure thru initial poor communication skills and a lack of desire to understand the real problem.

You posted "BLM my ass!" 

My response was meant to try to help you to understand that in poor communities the lives of police officers and particularly black officers are often not valued by those in the community. They are almost seen as the enemy and often as an occupying force.

How do you fix something like that?  I don't know but when you and I can't have a discussion about it then I see little hope for those in the community. It's a real shame because more good people will die because of it.
