Tension between the black community and police officers is at an all-time high in America — a direct result of the perpetuation of a twisted narrative aimed at dividing Americans.Unfortunately for the purveyors of this narrative, people are increasingly waking up to its negative effects.
Like this mother of a Pennsylvania teenager who has been charged with shooting at police officers.Rather than blame those horrible, racist police officers for oppressing her children, she rightfully places the inspiration for her children’s behavior on the shoulders of the Black Lives Matter movement.
According to the Associated Press, “They are in jail for doing what Black Lives Matter wanted them to do: shoot at cops,” Luz Rentas wrote in a statement given to a number of news organizations over the weekend. “The truth is that these are two punk kids following the orders of an irresponsible organization and now they’re gonna pay for it.”
The co-organizer of a Black Lives Matter chapter in Lancaster said the group rejects using violence to solve societal problems.Officers in the borough of Columbia were responding to a report of gunshots near a cemetery just before 3:30 a.m. Friday when their own vehicles came under fire. No officers were injured.
Marquell Rentas, 17, and Trenton Nace, 18, were arrested and remained jailed Tuesday on $2 million bail. The two, who are cousins, face charges including attempted homicide of a law enforcement officer. No attorney information was listed in online court records.
Rentas told officers during his arrest, “I was shooting at you,” and then cursed at police, authorities wrote in court documents.The Black Lives Matter movement has been participating in acts of violence and mayhem under the guise of “fighting for equality” ever since the group launched, and clearly their influence is spreading all across the country.
If you consistently stir the pot with calls of violence coming from so-called “leaders” within an influential movement, it’s only a matter of time before folks hear the message enough and start acting on it.
That being said, the individuals in question are obviously old enough to know right and wrong and should therefore be held accountable for their actions. Hopefully the negative consequences that flow out of this situation will help correct future behavior, enabling these two to grow up, mature, and be productive citizens.[Note: This article was written by Michael Cantrell]
