BLM Says Police Officers Shot In The Line Of Duty Should Not Be Called Heroes

Thin Line News Default

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) DC chapter took to Twitter over the weekend to voice its displeasure with police officers being called heroes when they are shot in the line of duty.

The group feels that this designation is automatically given to law enforcement officials, regardless of their actions, and does nothing but further the divide between the police and the black community.

In reality, it’s sickening statements like this that furthers the divide.

Multiple things can be true at the same time. We can praise the heroic acts of law enforcement while demanding accountability. In fact, it can be argued that we do exactly that in America today.

It is ludicrous that anyone would diminish the heroic nature of first responders shot in the line of duty. They put their lives on the line to protect ours and they should be honored as such.

We will not allow BLM to hijack this conversation and paint all police officers as villains. We owe it to the memory of those who have fallen to stand with those who stand for others.
