Amid the tragedy unfolding across the states, it should be remembered that in 2016, similar events broke out in Charlotte, NC. The way one peaceful protestor responded warmed the hearts of everyone. That video is making the rounds again while cities in America burn during riots prompted by the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.

Watch:

“You a p—y, ni–a. You a p—y, ni–a,” one of the foolish protestors yells at the peaceful protester for the sin of showing some love, because apparently love doesn’t trump hate.

But instead of being intimidated, the unnamed protester walks right up to the fool and drops some knowledge on him.

“Did he kill someone? Did he kill someone?” he says as he points to the two cops he’d just hugged.

I see them as human beings, just as I see everybody on this side as human beings,” the peaceful protester continues. “We’re all humans. His uniform doesn’t make him a robot, just like your skin color doesn’t make you a criminal.”

Bingo.

And despite propaganda otherwise from the left, which has jumped through hoops fanning the flames of hatred and animosity in America, the fact remains that the unjustified killings of black males remain an anomaly in America.

In fact, according to Philippe Lemoine of Cornell University, “a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence.”

But the left claims otherwise, and their promotion of this “false narrative poisons the relations between law enforcement and black communities throughout the country and results in violent protests that destroy property and sometimes even claim lives,” Lemoine presciently added in a piece he penned three years ago.

This doesn’t excuse unjustified acts of violence against black suspects — particularly George Floyd, who according to reports didn’t even resist arrest — but it does make it clear that there’s no vast conspiracy among cops to target blacks.

Moreover, it makes it clear that not every cop in America deserves to be held personally accountable — and in some cases targeted with murder — for the actions of a few rotten apples. It’s a point that’s slowly beginning to spread — including to Cincinnati:

In the video above, Cincinnati City Councilman Jeff Pastor pleads with rioters to stop destroying their city and community over the actions of a few rotten apples in Minneapolis.

“What I can’t understand is this is Cincinnati police. This is not Minneapolis police. And what they’re doing is just absolutely horrendous. As a member of the city council, this is my first time ever seeing something like this,” he says.

“I can’t understand for the life of me what is going on right now in the city of Cincinnati, and I’m going to be here until these folks and other folks are protected.”

But he isn’t worried about protecting people from the police — he’s worried about protecting people from the hooligans who have been encouraging underage children to behave like uncivilized thugs.

“There are people out here who are encouraging 14-year-old kids … to throw bottles at these cops and these grown people are encouraging our babies to fight,” the man continues.

“This is not their fight. And I don’t give a f–k how mad or angry you are with what is happening with the police, but these 15-year-old kids have nothing to do with this man.”

And neither do Cincinnati police officers.

And these cops — black cops, white cops — they did not do anything,” he continues. “And I’m not here to take one side or another. But what I’m suggesting to the people of Cincinnati is what type of success are you going to have with attacking these people who have nothing to do with this.”

Now, while Pastor was unable to specify who exactly is encouraging kids to riot, the evidence strongly points to the perpetrators being radical left-wing activists, especially those affiliated with the left-wing terrorist group Antifa.

“The violence and vandalism is being led by Antifa and other radical left-wing groups who are terrorizing the innocent, destroying jobs, hurting businesses and burning down buildings,” President Donald Trump said during a speech Saturday.

“The main victims of this horrible, horrible situations are the citizens who live in these once lovely communities. The mobs are devastating the life’s work of good people and destroying their dream.”
