Let me see if I understand this accurately:
After Michael Brown, a suspect in a strong-armed robbery was stopped by a police officer, he assaulted the police officer, tried to take his gun, charged him and was shot and killed, President Obama made a statement about it. He also sent in FBI agents and the Department of Justice. Three members of the Obama administration attended the funeral.
When Freddie Gray, a criminal involved in 20 criminal court cases, ran from police, was arrested and died in custody from police negligence, President Obama made a statement about it. He also sent in the Department of Justice. Three Obama officials attended Freddie Gray’s funeral.
When Eric Garner, arrested by the NYPD thirty times since 1980 on charges such as assault, resisting arrest, grand larceny and selling unlicensed cigarettes died due to police chokehold, compression of his chest, and poor health (asthma, heart disease, obesity – 6’3″ and 350 pounds) President Obama made a statement.
Yet when Kate Steinle, with no criminal record is shot and killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported 5 times and convicted of several felonies, President Obama makes no statement, doesn’t send the FBI or DOJ to investigate Mayor Ed Lee, the City Council or Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi to find out how such a thing could happen.
So an innocent person shot by a repeat criminal offender illegally in our country receives no mention by our President. What does this say about him? That he has more concern and sympathy for criminals! This is outrageous to me, as if we’ve fallen into another dimension where up is down.
