Barack Obama is urging Americans not to make any assumptions about what motivated a man in Louisiana to kill three police officers this week. This is likely because Obama himself indirectly played a role in the murder.
Obama has had two high-profile chances over the course of the past few weeks to condemn Black Lives Matter and the violence they incite. He had the opportunity after five Dallas cops were killed during a Black Lives Matter protest, and he had the opportunity to do so after three more were slain just days later in Baton Rouge.
Instead, the President of the United States championed the movement, and condemned those who spoke too harshly against men who kill cops.
