Prayers for Slain Police Officers. Prayers still for Those Slain Otherwise.

I have been searching my soul for the right words to combat the intentional deflection the haters have instantly jumped on to make this the fault of the poor and non-white. KAJ does better than I could hope to…once again:

“…the suicidal killer, wasn’t an impassioned activist expressing political frustration, he was a troubled man who had shot his girlfriend (and himself) that same day.” I add: The same day he killed two non-white police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

“Police are not under attack, institutionalized racism is. Trying to remove sexually abusive priests is not an attack on Catholicism, nor is removing ineffective teachers an attack on education.” ~ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Time
