Black Lives Matter Unless You Are A Cop

Another cop in New York City due to a career black criminal is now dead
Responding to citizens’ calls for help, he was shot in the head
Randolph Holder, a black cop, has not yet been laid to rest
Following his death by Tyrone Howard during an attempted arrest
The Black Lives Matter movement held an anti-police rally was held in Times Square
No wonder the Thin Blue Line feels its ability to protect and serve is impaired
Under the thin veneer of protesting “killer” cops the hand of Bill Ayers and the anarchy flag
No wonder the morale of the Thin Blue Line continues to lag
Police misconduct should never be tolerated a policy almost all cops would support
But condemning the whole Thin Blue Line is a misguided protest that comes up short
When the Thin Blue Line in places like New York or Baltimore rightfully feel they do not have political support
Good chance the people most needing the police in high crime areas will find the Thin Blue Line’s response coming up short
Where is the outrage in the Black Lives Matter movement over Holder’s death?
Even though he was black to hear the outrage, do not hold your breath
