NAACP Chapter President says Blue Lives Don’t Matter

Talbert Swan says there is no such thing as blue lives. I have a message for you Mr. Swan:
Mr. Swan,
You are as wrong as you could be. As the NAACP chapter president in Springfield, you deliver exactly the wrong message and as such you sir are part of the problem. After the shooting of two officers in Compton who were just sitting in their police car doing their job, I have had enough. You are saying that we are comparing THEIR jobs with YOUR life and their jobs are a CHOICE but your BLACKNESS isn’t.

NAACP chapter president Talbert Swan


How about your humanity? That seems to be a choice you are derelict in making. Then you want to compare the attempted assassination of two completely innocent officers, with Kyle Rittenhouse killing two protesters in Kenosha. That is a completely different situation. Mr. Rittenhouse was attacked during fast moving incidents during a riot in a place where people had guns, were looting and were violent. You just continue to spread false narratives. 
The difference is, Blue Lives are being snuffed out in anger, with malice and hate, purposely and randomly. The black lives that have been lost at the hands of police have never been lost as a result of a police officer sneaking up and shooting innocent citizens. They are lost as a result of police being called to a scene in which said person is doing something criminal, threatening to others, dangerous or violent. It is in RESPONSE to bad behavior that threatens others.
The subsequent behavior choices made by that suspect dictates what response officers have to make. Pretty big difference there Talbert. I would suggest you and the NAACP teach people how they must respond to a police encounter to avoid escalating the situation they have already created.
That is a far cry from sitting quietly in a vehicle and being targeted for murder by ambush.
I am a white woman Mr. Swan. Working as an officer in a nearly all black, high crime community, I never once saw officers mistreat citizens. I never once saw excessive force used. What I saw were officers of all races do their best for people of color that quite frankly weren’t doing the best for themselves or one another. I cared for black children left alone and locked in rooms by their parents, with little food and soiled diapers, while some parents worked and others went to get drunk or high. 
I interviewed white teens raped by black teens after being driven to their home while the parent was home and gave tacit approval. I held a woman as she died, stabbed in the neck by a man whose hat she teasingly stole. I held the hands of victims shot because someone lost a card game.
I watched officers do their best to help with family disputes, neglected and abused children and animals, gunfights and murders over insignificant acts or slights. Unlike the narrative you and Black Lives Matter want people to believe, the people in that community wanted us there, needed us there, and appreciated us there. We knew them, and when given the tools to do our jobs, we could protect them. We didn’t relate to them by the color of their skin, but by their humanity.
I dealt too many times with people with any number of drugs on board that were too intoxicated to know right from wrong. I knew those people in the community who wanted more in their lives, wanted better lives and they were good people. I also knew the drug dealers and the gang members, the sexual predators and sex workers. Not all people are good people Mr Swan. For you to say Blue Lives don’t matter because they made a CHOICE to go into these communities and each day risk their lives to protect the people of these communities; to deliver babies, to save choking children, to notice and rescue children being abused in a hundred ways by family members, to take the criminals out of the community so the people can have better lives, is just wrong. Police have hundreds of thousands of contacts with people of color every day, and the percentage that turns into any kind of use of force is less than 2%.
Here are some facts for you so you can correct the misinformation you are spreading. Blacks comprise 13.5% of the total United States population. Black males comprise 7.5% of the total black population. Approximately 4% are black males between the ages of 16 and 60. That percentage commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime in the United States.
Last year in the United States 600,000 field officers killed 1004 suspects. Police killed twice as many whites than blacks. However black suspects killed NINE TIMES more police offices than officers killed blacks
For you to say Blue Lives don’t matter because your Blackness is not a choice is ludicrous. You promote Black Lives Matter, a Marxist and racist organization in itself, that would destroy all income and educational opportunities for people of color. Your priorities are completely out of whack here. Every officer serving the black community I worked in, worked with honor and with care and with fairness.
You, sir, are out of line and ignorant of the truth. You contribute to officers being maliciously murdered by your false narrative. You harm those you purport to help.
To do better for people of color, who are people as equal as people of all other colors and races, stop holding them back and making them victims, and encourage them to stay away from drugs and gangs, encourage fathers to remain in the family unit, encourage education and religion and teach them how to interact with police. Creating victims helps no one.
I am angry and ashamed of your statements Mr. Swan. You can do better. You can be better. You can uplift people of color. What you cannot do is continue to excuse the murder of police officers. Blue Lives Matter.

Synthetic Biology is Mass Casualty’s Newest Bedfellow

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now monitoring a new Covid-19 variant called XBB that is presently estimated to represent only about 3.1 percent of new infections in the U.S. So what’s the problem? The XBB variant, an Omicron subvariant mix, is supposedly “the most vaccine-resistant ever.” Perfect strategy. Let’s get the fear and…

Suppression of the Human Spirit and Q & A 47 on America Out Loud PULSE

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – Is heart damage something that can be managed with telemed, if many tests have already been done locally? Is there spike protein shedding after the vaccine; how much damage to others, and for how long? Have you heard of people who can’t tolerate it and get parasites after taking Ivermectin?

Cities Burned, Politicians Apologized & Prisons Began to Empty

Cities Burned, Politicians Apologized & Prisons Began to Empty

The very law that had worked so well became a political landmine for those who dared whisper their support, and the entire context of the bill was rewritten as some great hoax to repress the downtrodden. Forget how many thousands of inner-city lives had been saved or youth prevented from following a path of criminality; there was a political advantage to be made…

The Big Government Lie about Ivermectin Finally Revealed

The Big Government Lie about Ivermectin Finally Revealed

Because of a credible lawsuit, the federal government is lying in a most amazing way. It says it really did not say what it has been saying for more than two years. Federal lawyers recently argued in a Texas courtroom — and apparently with straight faces — that the government’s war on ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic was a figment of our collective imagination. What a load of BS…

Chinese Citizens’ Uprising Against Xi’s CCP has China on Edge

Thousands of Chinese citizens have taken to the streets of some of China’s largest cities, including Beijing, chanting “Liberate the city,” “If we die, let’s die together,” and even “Down with Xi Jinping!” and “Down with the Communist Party!” The question now is this: What will Xi do in the face of such open resistance to his policies? Will he repeat the tragedy of Tiananmen Square…

Robert Malone Sues the Breggins for $25 Million

Why would Dr. Malone make his claim so large — over 25 million dollars? The effect of what he is doing should be obvious. It threatens us with financial ruin and ties up our energies. Does he want to make us too afraid and too exhausted to criticize his public policy theories and his numerous highly destructive attacks on leaders of the health freedom movement?

Special Counsel Jack Smith and the Fairytale of a Trump-led Insurrection

Has anyone before even heard of this “veteran career prosecutor” Jack Smith? His wife, Katy Chevigny, donated $2000 to Biden’s 2020 basement campaign via her Big Mouth Productions company. She likewise contributed to the campaign of ultra-radical Islamic, anti-Semitic, Rashida Tlaib. Chevigny also happens to be a producer of Michelle Obama’s documentary Becoming…

If 18th-century Virginians Could Extend these Rights, Why not 21st-century Americans?

If the people of Virginia could recognize these rights before we declared independence, then what should prevent us now? If eighteenth-century Virginians could extend these rights to their neighbors, why not 21st-century Americans? Seeing so much of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights in this declaration gives me a better understanding of the…

My Journey to Jesus – Stationed in Germany Without my Wife

My Journey to Jesus – Stationed in Germany Without my Wife

I thought this girl might want to be more than friends and was torn between attraction to her and wanting to be faithful to my wife (I won’t lie – it was arousing). I finished showering and put my pajamas on, and all she did was say, “Good night,” and head back to Pruitt’s room. This experience was a pretty big culture shock, but the girls were right – nudity in Germany is fairly common…

Trump and the Swamp That Still Oozes With Criminality

Forty-seven Democrats and forty-nine Republicans are under observation. Again, Nancy Pelosi was not included, but many trades demonstrated excellent timing, like Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), who sits on the House Oversight Committee, allegedly purchased shares of the pharmaceutical company AbbVie in 2020 and 2021 even as his committee was investigating them for excessive drug prices…
