Two days ago the City of Bloomington sent an email to select people and groups:
Evidently this email was not sent Blind Carbon Copy because the Local Black Lives Matter Council responded to ALL. I will be more respectful of email addresses, the ones not redacted are public information:
Those with a few brain cells know having people who understand the conflict between the police and BLM on the force could build bridges.
Not Black Lives Matter, they are offended at the very thought of civility.
They aren’t above wanting money stolen from the people who actually worked for it handed over to them however.
Maybe if BLM asks nice the police will ignore calls from your specific houses. Submit a list and give it a shot. Most people know, especially in poor communities, the police are the wall that protects them from criminals.
Maybe that’s what BLM doesn’t like.
