DYKER HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Nearly four hundred people hit the streets of Brooklyn on Saturday to rally in a march called 'Back the Blue.' They held signs and chanted slogans as they walked down Bay Ridge Parkway. Their message was that policing is needed to keep crime down and communities safe.

This comes after, they say, months of anti-police sentiment stemming from allegations of police brutality that started off with the death of George Floyd in May, and backlash since city council has decided to defund the new NYPD by $1 billion.

Where are the black people in that protest? Absolutely unbelievable. THEY are the ones who ultimately pay the price the most when the Marxists defund or tie the hands of the cops. THEY are the ones who end up dead, and where are they in this protest?

Three mysteries of the universe I will never understand: Why isn’t Hillary in jail? Why does Taylor Swift have a career? And why do 90% of blacks vote Democrap?

In the case of Cuomo-tose and DiBlowhard the clothes have no emperor.

Finally! Our elected representatives do nothing. Time for the people to do it themselves.

The democrat controlled media racist killing reporting was a deliberate miss portraying of the six foot seven inch 200 plus pound Floyd as an innocent black who was being forceably restrained because he was black not because he was resisting arrest.When He was legitimately arrested for passing a counterfeit $20 dollar bill he was resisting arrest and was a threat if not secured. But the media was not mentioning his size or reporting that Floyd was removed from a squad car because he was acting up under the influence of drugs and also later was discovered to have COVID 19. Which suggests his physical condition may have led to his death which the media turned into a murder change and a charge of serious abuse by police because of police efforts that were tried to get him who under control.

If Obama had urged blacks to believe in the justice system and comply with the police would we be confronting his use of creating racial division now ?
The results of politically induced miss reporting incidents where blacks have resisted legitimate arrest began to be used earlier during and after the post Zimmmerman trial, then on to the Ferguson episode. Obama’s abuse of the “Bully Pulpit” which seemed to promote resistance to legitimate arrest led to black gangs attacking non blacks found innocently traversing black neighborhoods and to a score of murders or life changing injuries and later attacks of theft and vandalism on local businesses as well as attacks and murders of police officers during that period

Lay off Warren Wilhelm. He’s about to get the Nobel Prize in medicine.

He has made the earth-shattering discovery that people who attend Black Lives Matter protests do not get the Corona virus, so these gatherings are permitted. All other types of gatherings, such as Blue Lives Matter or Jewish Orthodox funerals, are banned in NYC for the summer (people who attend those gatherings are susceptible).

I was in St George and Hurricane Utah today looking at houses. I couldn’t believe all the Back the Blue signs I saw in yards. There are many Americans who are fed up with these anachists.

Yes.

It would be suicide for them to mess with the folks in Dyker Heights.

Amid a national movement to defund the police, LAPD officers rally outside downtown headquarters

LAPD officers form a line to separate pro- and anti-police demonstrators outside department headquarters Saturday in downtown Los Angeles.

In a moment of national reckoning prompted by the killing of George Floyd and street protests against police brutality, Los Angeles police officers rallied outside downtown headquarters on Saturday.
Calls to defund the police have been swiftly answered by the City Council, which slashed the LAPD budget by $150 million, saying the money will be channeled into services for Black, Latino and disenfranchised communities.
