Young, black cop you probably never heard of allegedly murdered in the line of duty by career criminal thug

You likely won’t hear a peep about it from Black Lives Matter, not to mention their devoted allies among congressional Democrats and media figures, but last Saturday a white criminal suspect allegedly killed a 29-year-old black St. Louis police officer.

While it’s true this is a local story, it seems worth mentioning nevertheless given all the time and resources that have been expended by BLM to make an issue out of black criminal suspects, including accused sex offenders, being fatally or non-fatally shot by police officers.

According to BLM, it seems virtually every shooting of a black suspect by police is rooted in white supremacy, even when the evidence makes it clear that the cops were wholly justified in their response.

But if that’s the case, then what does BLM have to say about Thomas Kinworthy, a 43-year-old white criminal, allegedly murdering 3-year St. Louis Police Department veteran Tamarris Bohannon?

Learn more about the alleged murder below:

“St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden said Bohannon and other officers were responding to a shooting call in the 3700 block of Hartford Street shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday just south of Tower Grove Park. While they were looking for a victim, they heard gunfire and Bohannon was hit in the head and went to the ground,” local station KMOV reported.

Another officer was shot but thankfully survived. Kinworthy then took refuge in a home and barricaded himself inside. Investigators eventually took him into custody early Sunday morning.

Besides being an alleged murderer, it turns out that Kinworthy is — much like the ignoble “victims” whom BLM activists invariably raise up as martyrs — a longtime criminal with an extensive record.

“His criminal history spans decades. He reportedly had drug offenses in Missouri in the 1990’s. In 2001, he went to prison in Florida for six years for aggravated battery with a firearm, shooting at a man in what police called a road rage incident,” KMOV confirmed.

“He was convicted of exposing himself to an undercover officer in Florida in 2009. Then in January this year, he was charged for attempted sexual battery and kidnapping, choking the victim and attempting a sex act, according to court documents.”

And that’s not even his entire record.

Bohannon meanwhile had, it would appear, been an upstanding citizen from birth until death. In addition to serving as a cop, he’d also been pursuing a degree in criminology & criminal justice at Webster University.

“Tamarris was a promising student who was dedicated to personal growth and to serving communities. His loss will be felt throughout the Webster and St. Louis communities. Webster extends our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues,” Webster University president Julian Z. Schuster said in a statement Monday.

As of Thursday, there had been no statements, no protests, no angry riots even about his death at the hands of a white criminal.

It seemed odd but also telling, according to former New York Police Department commissioner Bernard B. Kerik.

Look at what he tweeted about the murder below:

While harsh, his blunt assessment of BLM’s lack of concern about Bohannon’s tragic death did inspire a lot of agreement.


All of them, including Kerik, had a point. CNN host Don Lemon, a BLM supporter, admitted outright last month that only certain lives matter to the movement — namely those of black criminals.

In fact, BLM activists have admitted this themselves:

So in their backward world, the lives of innocent aborted black babies, innocent murdered black men/women/children and innocent raped black women/girls don’t mean a thing.

And that’s why, despite Bohannon having been a role model of a citizen, you’ll never hear a peep — not a single peep — from BLM or its famous groupies about this actual hero.
