Blue Lives Matter--Another Cop Killed

Black Lives Matter gets all the headlines, gets all the coverage in the liberal press
But another BLM needs to be formed to a growing problem address
Blue Lives Matter as in Greenville, South Carolina another cop dies
Chasing a gang member Deontea Mackey, probably with a rap sheet all in the community would despise
 A man blue doing his duty to keep us safe, a decorated Iraqi tour vet
 A pregnant wife and two small sons his calling they will forever regret
Allen Jacobs just 28 and on the force for only four years
Now reduced to from above gazing down on his wife and sons shedding tears
Chasing the gang member he never unholstered his revolver to fire even a warning shot
Against a gang banger who respect for life evidently was never learned even if taught
Mackey after being cornered and calling his mother put a fatal bullet into his own head
Two lives lost in a split moment-will this trend to violence ever by and against both BLMs be shed?
