• Media Malfeasance Seeks to Smear Cops … Cops Speaking Out

    Surge Summary: A story from the Washington Post is Exhibit A in the way the Mainstream Media is trying to misrepresent the facts regarding American law enforcement. Meanwhile, police officers are beginning to speak out against the slanders targeting them.

    The Washington Post ran a story Monday with this vile headline:  “Protests Spread Over Police Shootings. Police Promised Reforms. Every Year, They Still Shoot And Kill Nearly 1,000 People.”

    Thirty-five paragraphs later, these hacks finally got to the most relevant information:  There has been a 60% decrease in the number of unarmed people shot and killed by police officers since 2015.

    In a time of great racial strife, why did the Washington Post title this story in such a misleading manner?  That certainly sounds like reforms we should all be proud of.

    Why did it hide the fact that during the Trump years specifically, police shootings of unarmed people dropped 60%?  Well, I think we all know the answer.

    By the way, whites accounted for 45% of the unarmed individuals shot and killed by police last year, while blacks made up 27%.

    And these figures are even less disturbing when you consider that “unarmed” does not mean that the individuals were innocent bystanders.  In almost every case, the officer was physically attacked, sometimes with a vehicle.

    Fighting Back

    Police officers around America are under siege right now by the radical left and the “Defund the Police” Democrats.  They are sick and tired of it, and they are fighting back against the lies and smears.

    Yesterday, Mike O’Meara, president of the New York Police Benevolent Association, voiced the frustration of officers everywhere.  He said:

    “I am not Derek Chauvin.  [Pointing to officers behind him] They are not him. He killed someone. We didn’t. . .  Everybody’s trying to shame us. Legislators. The press. . .  Stop treating us like animals and thugs, and start treating us with some respect! That’s what we’re here today to say. We’ve been left out of the conversation. We’ve been vilified. It’s disgusting.”
