I said it on the podcast recently...the language the mainstream media and top Dems keep using to describe the police and the issues surrounding police brutality is inherently dangerous. LA Mayor Garcetti called police “murderers” and everyone seems fine with describing this country as a place where the cops are committing complete genocide. While we understand reforms need to happen especially along racial lines, that doesn’t mean we have the right to overstate the situation. By promoting these notions of racist police violence around every corner they make it okay target police for vigilante acts. It’s justice, after all. If these are Nazis on our streets, killing them is an act of heroism. As we’ve seen it only takes a few nut jobs taking those descriptions seriously for tragic acts to occur. This is why finding reasonable ways to talk about all this is so vital. Now more than ever. Our language must not be such that it drives people to fear. Decisions made from fear always have terrible consequences.
