Black Lives Matter Founder: We Should Remove Police from the Inner-City

Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza thinks she has a solution to ease the tensions between the police and the black community. Unsurprisingly, it's a short-sighted idea almost guaranteed to backfire spectacularly.

“Quite frankly, many of our [Black Lives Matter] members are continuing to investigate what it would mean to have police-free communities. I think what we’ve continued to see over time is that no moral appeal is actually stopping the deaths of black people, whether they be armed or unarmed.” Garza told Complex.

Garza also claimed that the Charlotte riots are a natural reaction; they occurred because people had been denied housing and good schools.

“How do we stop violence, looting, and riots? The way that we stop that is by making sure that people have the things that they need to thrive,” Garza said. “When people are systematically denied their right to adequate housing, adequate schools, to adequate food, to dignity—this is a response and a reaction that we should absolutely expect.”

It's amazing that Black Lives Matter would rather put their own community at risk of even higher murder rates than accept the role of law enforcement in their lives. Thank goodness our police hold the inner-city's citizens in higher regard than Black Lives Matter holds the police. Otherwise, they would see just how terrible an un-policed minority community can be.
