I do not agree with the "Black Lives Matter" movement. There are very few African Americans that have been killed by law enforcement this year, and an even smaller number that were unarmed at the time the incident occurred.

Black lives do matter because there is something seriously wrong with the way blacks are being treated. The fact that only a few black have been killed by law enforcement does not change the fact that blacks are being killed by the people that are supposed to protect them. Only a few people in America have been killed by terrorist and we are still worried about them.
Most of the officers that kill blacks for no reason don't even go to jail for it, how is that right? How is it that white officers all have get out of jail free cards, this is racism at its finest and its time for it to stop. We as a nation need to hold people accountable for the actions they commit not matter there race.

And I want to pose this question to my opposition if you had a family member killed by and officer because they feared that your family member was going to hurt them or run away wound you want justice or will you allow them to walk away.

I do not see how anyone can rally behind a movement that is against violence towards African Americans, and say that they are being attacked by white people, when 84.9% of the time they are the attacker in violence involving black and white people.

I am certain that all of those if not most of the blacks you mentioned above went to jail for what they did and i bet most of them were not cops. The point of black lives matter is not to stop violence but to stop people from getting away with it. Especially when the people getting away with it are cops.
Cops should be prime examples of the laws in america only using violence as a last resort. But that has not been happening cops shoot anyone they think is dangerous even where there not in any danger. But to me that's not the worst part, the worst part is when they are freed of crimes that should have them lock behind bars and are allowed to continue works as law enforcement.

All lives matter, you think that we are special just because we are black? Thats not right at all, what about the innocent cops that are killed? Just because we are black, does NOT give the friggin right to go out and kill cops because of a fews bad actions that usually are the victims fault. Blacks like you and the others, and black or not, that act out like this is a disgrace and makes us look worse!! Sorry but the gangs are mostly black, and we the blacks are the majority of the time doing the crimes. So grow up and open your god dang eyes and stop making us look bad. Why don't we start ranting about the whites killed by black, huh? You never here about them. ALL LIVES MATTER, BLUE LIVES MATTER
