As I sit here watching the news this morning I am saddened by what this country has become. When you can’t even sit in your car and play on your phone without fear of being shot at, it’s a disgrace! We as a country need to stop with all the BLM, WLM, PLM ecetra and become UNITED once again and be proud to call our country the UNITED States!! Just remember that ALL LIVES MATTER whether your human, animal, plant… all living things MATTER!!!
Here are some quick facts for all of you (with sources included), seeing as the media only wants to report violence by police against blacks (as that is what “sells”):
– According to “The Guardian”’s tally, of the approximately 1001 people killed by police in 2015 in America, 502 were white, 250 were black, 163 were Hispanic/Latino, 18 were Asian/Pacific Islander, 13 were American Indian, and 54 were other/unknown.
– Of the 566 police related shootings so far this year, 279 were white, 136 were black. (same source as above)
– In 2015, 12 percent of white and Hispanic homicide deaths were due to police officers, while only four percent of black homicide deaths were the result of police officers. (WallStreet Journal)
– In 2015, black cops were 3.3 times more likely to fire a gun than other cops at a crime scene when the victims were of any race. (Department of Justice, FBI data)
– 49 percent of those killed by officers from May 2013 to April 2015 were white, while 30 percent were black. 19 percent were Hispanic and 2 percent were Asian and other races. (Washington Times)
– A police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black person than a cop killing an unarmed black person. (WallStreet Journal)
– There have been over twice as many cops victimized by fatal shootings in the first three months of 2016 vs. 2015. (same source as above)
This is NOT to say that there is not racism in America, nor that the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were justified, but please know the full statistics before you state “black lives matter”. The sooner we can get past “blacks” and “whites” and get back to “Americans” the better off we will all be and the sooner it will allow us ALL to crush any racial inequality that still stands. #AmericaDivided needs to become #AmericaUnited. #Dallas #alllivesmatter
My husband is an over the road truck driver. This morning before he was to pick up his loaded trailer he went to a Walmart in Columbus Ohio, did his shopping and got around $200 worth of merchandise and groceries. When he was going back to his truck he found a tow truck trying to tow his tractor (he was bobtailing). He talked to the driver and got him to not tow the tractor then went back to the store and talked to a manager. The manager stated that they do not allow commercial vehicles to park in their parking lot and that truckers are not allowed to shop at their store. Jason (my husband) then took all his stuff and returned it and received all his money back. According to the manager all Walmarts are starting to do the same thing. Swift Transport (whom Jason is contracted with) plus other transport companies are the ones who make it possible for them to stay in business.

How can a court in one state rule what another state does? I’m not completely sure as to an answer to this question but that seems to be what the 9th circuit court in San Francisco is trying to do to the state of Idaho
The biggest thing that really tans my hide over this is, when did us Americans become so high n mighty that we actually tell men of God no matter the religion that if they go against their beliefs that they will pay by spending time in jail? I would really like somebody to explain this to me because I just don’t understand. I am a Christian and I believe in my faith, how can we as “american people” start treating our own kind like criminals!!!
