(Tea Party 247) – The radical leftist ideology that has latched on to destroying police officers is an equal opportunity force of destruction, having targeted black police chiefs in recent weeks, forcing them to resign from their positions simply for doing their jobs.
You know, like arresting violent rioters, looters, and so-called “protesters” who claim to be freedom fighters out waging war against the ills of a racist society, all the while, burning down their neighborhoods and stealing everything that isn’t nailed down.
These individuals, the police chiefs, are doing good work. They are protecting and serving. Yet they are being punished as if they are guilty of doing something wrong. Good cops get punished for their jobs. Is it any wonder cops aren’t all that interested in standing up and facing these crowds of haters in their local communities?
Here’s more on this phenomenon via BizPacReview:
Multiple black police chiefs have resigned from their posts this week as they and their respective departments have come under fire from Black Lives Matter extremists and their allies in government and media.
The first chief, Reneé Hall of the Dallas Police Department, submitted her resignation Tuesday and is slated to step down from her post at the end of the year.

Hall faced criticism earlier this summer when her officers committed the apparent crime of arresting so-called “protesters” amid the George Floyd riots.
“Nearly 200 people were detained after police surrounded protesters in Dallas on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, confronting them and firing what appeared to be rubber bullets,” NBC News reported in early June.
“Police illuminated the bridge at 7 p.m. Monday and hemmed in the protesters, who originated their march at the nearby Frank Crowley Courts Building.”

Following the altercation, Hall was reportedly forced by city officials to release all of the “protesters,” though she maintained she’d taken the right course of action in arresting them.
“Some are not happy with the decisions I made yesterday. I am not here to make people happy. My job and our job is to keep this city safe,” she said during a presser at the time.
It’s insane how the very people who are out there trying to keep civilization from collapsing into total anarchy are the ones who are being forced out for simply taking their duty seriously and trying to ensure that no one gets hurt.
These “protesters” have more in common with terrorists than they do Civil Rights leaders. They are using acts of extreme violence as a means of attempting to force some sort of political change on the rest of the country. A change that honestly already happened decades ago. It’s ridiculous.
Two months later in mid-August, The Dallas Morning News ran a hit piece on how Hall’s officers had allegedly “stormed and arrested peaceful protesters as well as the photographer who captured their violence five days after George Floyd’s death.”
This led to anger among city officials.
“City Council members expressed alarm at a report … published Sunday that detailed what happened, and called for a special hearing of the public safety committee on Aug. 18 to question Police Chief U. Renee Hall about officers’ actions that first weekend of mass demonstrations downtown,” the Morning News itself reported.
“A spokesman for the police department also said its internal affairs division was ‘looking into the incident’ but provided no other details.”
Weeks later, Hall is now on her way out. In her resignation later, she reportedly did not complain about the circumstances behind her resignation but did admit that she’s received “a number of inquiries about future career opportunities.”
It sounds like she may be interested in working with a department that’s more understanding of how law enforcement is actually supposed to work.
Over in Rochester, New York meanwhile, black Police Chief La’Ron Singletary and his entire command staff announced their resignation Tuesday, with Singletary issuing a scathing statement slamming the critics who’ve allegedly smeared him.
“As a man of integrity, I will not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character. The events over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity,” he reportedly wrote.
“The members of the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Community know my reputation and know what I stand for. The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for.”
His department has faced backlash from BLM extremists and their allies ever since a black criminal suspect who’d been high on PCP died while being apprehended.
Though the death happened in March, body cam footage from the encounter was released just days ago. With its release came first an eruption of left-wing media outlets accusing his department of “police brutality” and then violent riots.
Many individuals who are involved with Black Lives Matter were tickled pink to hear about the resignation of Singletary.
“Our movement for justice is winning, and it’s because of this incredible community, showing up night after night,” a closely linked group called Free the People ROC said in a statement.
“Let’s keep the pressure up until all those responsible for Daniel Prude’s murder and cover up—including Mayor Lovely Warren—have resigned. We have the power to hold those in power responsible and finally bring an end to systemic police violence in our community.”
This is just appalling and demonstrates the dangers of intersectionality and the conflict that arises when one attempts to actually live out a progressive worldview. It can’t be done. The very basis of this particular point of view is that there is no objective standard of truth by which we are all supposed to be held to, except the one that we create ourselves.
The problem is, these principles are malleable. Often times they get twisted and changed and thus there is no solid foundation. Things conflict with each other and contradict one another. It’s impossible to be consistent in the application of these values.
Liberals refuse to acknowledge that, though they certainly know it is true. What’s happening to these police chiefs is proof of that.
