Ah, another day, another Black Lives Matter hashtag. This time it’s #KorrynGaines. Remember her? We ran through some of the facts of her death on the site a few days ago (read The Hard Truth About Korryn Gaines Shooting. What #BlackLivesMatter Won’t Tell You…). Naturally it didn’t take very long before BLM tossed in their trademark race card.
This week on the show Crowder covered the shooting of Korryn Gaines in depth for added thoroughness – also giving us a visual demonstration on how one can balance both a shotgun and a baby at the same time. #Parenting
Here are a few key points that bear repeating.
- There was a warrant out for the arrest of Korryn Gaines at the time
- The cops were granted entry into the home by the landlord
- 3 hour standoff ensues
- She aimed a loaded shotgun at the cops while using her 5-year-old as a meat shield
- Police shot her after she threatened to kill them
Was the situation unfortunate? Of course. Our prayers are with the tiny tot who got caught in the crossfire. Crossfire that his mother tried to use him to block from hitting herself, mind you. After she threatened to kill innocent people for doing their job. You’ll notice that these are the points that BLM has been conveniently leaving out of their protests.
Facts. Who needs ’em when you have hashtags?
