An 8-year-old girl named Secoriea Turner was shot and killed in Atlanta while riding in a car with her mother after they happened upon a Black Lives Matter protest area similar to CHAZ / CHOP in Seattle.
How Did This Happen?
Here’s the backstory. The mother was riding with her daughter and a friend on the I-85 interstate. She then got off at the University Avenue exit. This particular area had been sort-of blocked off after the Rayshard Brooks shooting. The now-burned down Wendy’s restaurant is very close to the interstate exit.
Black Lives Matter protesters were using the burned husk of Wendy’s and the surrounding area as their own autonomous zone. Police had previously removed makeshift barriers in that area, but so-called BLM “protesters” put them back up.
When the mother approached the new barrier, they were told to pull into a parking lot and turn around. They weren’t given a chance to do so. At least two of the “protesters” in the area fired into the vehicle, shooting and killing the little girl inside. It’s not clear if the mother and friend were shot but they did survive.
This Has Become A Pattern
Unfortunately, the shooting of Secoriea Turner is not the first shooting that Black Lives Matter have been involved with. The aforementioned CHAZ / CHOP area in Seattle had two deadly shootings, one of which was confirmed to come from the zone’s own security. In the quest to seek justice for and safety from police brutality, more injustice and less safety was the result.
Incidences of violence that extend all the way up to murder have gone up dramatically all over the nation. Popular anti-police rhetoric has caused police to simply become less effective. Most people are law-abiding citizens that do not need police in their everyday lives. But there is a criminal element that exists and it most certainly must be controlled. Without police, criminality runs rampant and innocent citizens, like Secoriea Turner, become victims.
Remove The Wool From Your Eyes
Black Lives Matter are seen as a benevolent group with a few bad apples. But the reality is that one of the co-founders of BLM has gone on television and said that they are trained marxists and have the ultimate purpose of removing Donald Trump from office. What does any of that have to do with black lives? It’s time for those who are hypnotized by the messaging of BLM to wake up and snap out of it before it’s too late.
