Black Lives Matter ‘rhetoric’ a prime suspect in ‘cold-blooded assassination’ of white deputy

goforth-milesHouston authorities say they’re still looking for a motive in the “assassination” of a deputy who was murdered pumping gas Friday night, but the rhetoric of the “Black Lives Matter” movement is high on the suspect list.

Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman announced at a press conference Saturday afternoon that Shannon J. Miles, 30, was arrested early that morning and charged with capital murder, according to local ABC affiliate 13 Eyewitness News.

Investigators said that Miles approached behind Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, who was in uniform and pumping gas, and fired multiple rounds into the officer. When Goforth fell, Miles fired additional rounds.

“I am proud of the men and women that have worked swiftly to apprehend the responsible person who posed a significant threat to both law enforcement and the community at large,” Hickman told reporters. “Our deputies return to the streets tonight to hold a delicate peace that was shattered last evening.”

A motive for the killing of Goforth hasn’t been determined. There’s no evidence that he and Miles had any interaction in the past, so Hickman said it’s a possibility he was influenced by the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

“I think that’s something that we have to keep an eye on,” Hickman said. “The general climate of that kind of rhetoric can be influential on people to do things like this. We’re still searching to find out if that’s actually a motive.”

At an earlier news conference, Hickman referred to the murder as a “cold-blooded assassination.”

“Cops’ lives matter, too,” Hickman said then. “So why don’t we drop the qualifier and say lives matter.”

    Not holding my breath while waiting to Loretta Lynch or Barack Hussein to comment. If they do it will undoubtedly be a defense of the shooter.

    1. PI by Nature says:

      Well, it is not as though the general population has demonstrated that all (non-criminal) lives matter through their actions. When they demonstrate such, then they can demand a comment.

        Checking 0bama’s colon for polyps? Got your head stuck up his rear end, so I only figured…

        1. PI by Nature says:

          No. It is called treating one as one deserves to be treated, based on prior behavior and character.

    2. Jackie says:

      Why should they comment? The Sheriff’s Deputy was White!!! That says it all.

      1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says:

        They are pretty transparent after all aren’t they?

        1. Jackie says:

          Yes, they are and very the assailant was extremely racist against Whites. “They” are going to push us too far very soon!!

    If I could I would love to do bacteria experiments on the killer….

  3. Poptoy1949 says:

    White lives matter. Police lives matter. Babies in the Womb lives matter. All lives matter.

    1. Chris Robinette says:

      Lives matter? ALL lives matter and as for the blacks of Ferguson Your “Black Lies” DO NOT MATTER at all. Brown received the consequences of his behavior. Accept it and shut the F up. I Add my voice and my skills to the support and protection of law enforcement around the country. All law enforcement officers city, county, state and federal are sworn to enforce the law and the constitution of the US, remember that.

    2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says:

      Not to democRAT politicians.

  4. John Campbell says:

    Follow the money trail for “BlackLivesMatter” and you’ll find a socialist, likely a den of them.

    1. J.W.Lee says:

      Amen…I pray for the day.

    2. Jackie says:

      And probably led by Sharpton or Farrakhan!

    3. Beeotchstewie says:

      George Soros is funding the entire movement.

      1. rosemarienoa says:

        Correct !!! If it’s bad for America then Soros is heavily involved & financing it !!!

        1. Beeotchstewie says:

          Scum like Soros are the absolute worst. They cause all the economic problems, all while positioning themselves to profit off the inevitable rebuild. They finance the destruction so they profit more in the end.

  5. ScarletPimpernil says:

    How many of this type of idiot thinks pushing the white race very far is smart? They are no less capable, though, perhaps, less prone, to striking out and they are, certainly, more capable for their numbers and armaments. I just hope, if some do, they target carefully and begin with the obvious dirt bags.

    1. liberalssuck says:

      I think it is safe to say. When it happens, the libs won’t know what hit them. .

    2. Beeotchstewie says:

      Plug The Thug will be our response.

    “cold blooded execution” how about those innocent honest motorist cops executed?

    1. liberalssuck says:

      Crap happens, unfortunately cops are human, sadly they are a small part, why any mistake is blown far and wide. Sadly the good that they do is far out shadowed by the very small bad.
      Now I could say you are a pos for approving of this cops death. However it would not penetrate the the libtards indoctrination. So wasting my typing
      So far i have only seen one video of an motorist kilked, yet so far this year six cops executed.. Yea 6 for one.

      1. Ralph Salewsky says:

        I am a believer of scriptures ” what you sow is what you reap” and “the wages of sin is death”

        1. liberalssuck says:

          Really, so the actions of a very few, means all cops should be killed? That is bs. Understand liberals have a mental disorder,care you one of them?

    2. LittleRoot_48 says:

      MOST of them had rap sheets a mile long! Innocent, my azz! They also resisted arrest. Not too bright.

    3. Tec Sg Beatty says:

      Highly over exaggerated, aside from being “off topic”. Just like the number of young, black males killed in all circumstances by cops. The number of these shootings is about 100+/- a year.
      Compare this number to the THOUSANDS of young black males killed by OTHER YOUNG BLACK MALES, and then show me your outrage, you hypocritical racist.

      1. Beeotchstewie says:

        More white criminals are also killed annually by police officers than are blacks almost two to one. Facts mean little to the racist violent thugs.

  7. liberalssuck says:

    This is on libtards and their bs grievances. I wish the ruling elites were held accountable too.

  8. higgy01 says:

    The way the promoters of “black lives Matter” are acting is disgraceful and suggesting that maybe they don’t matter. Shooting or stoning police because they represent law and order is not the way to make an impression, at least not a good one. If the real promoters want to do something then send the trouble making scum like McKesson packing and state your intent or grievance in a civilized manner.

    TGFD here.

    Trump’s election will usher-in new policies that replace the ones we have now.

    We will see a new, political correctness that is just the direct opposite of the current pc.
    We will see a big, impenetrable Wall where currently there is none.
    We will see remarkably-fewer, dumb, dull, illiterate, brown faces with spicanic features, than we see now.
    We will not hear anything more from the jiggaboolivesmatter crowd.
    HoreHay won’t be on our TV screens any more. Neither will the bimbo meeegyn.
    The mooozlem bro’hood will no longer infest the white house and our government.
    Iran will not have a bomb. Neither will north korea.
    Israel will regain its respected, stable position in the middle east.
    Half of the armed agents in federal agencies will be gone. That means All the armed, LGBT panty-boys.
    Russia and China will know that America is strong again, and they will fear our president.
    Most of the isil/isis/islamic-state scum will lie burnt to a crisp in the hot, middle-eastern sun.
    There will be a lot fewer moskes in America.
    ALL the senior military panty-boys will be gone, too….Fired, pension-less and imprisoned.

    Yes, 2017 will be a very good year.

    1. Well Stated…Now we have to work hard to get Donald Trump Elected….

    Easy. He is a black thug. The victim was (1) a law enforcement officer and (2) white. If this was not a “hate crime” there is no such thing.
