Abuellah, Clark Usa, Capela discussed on Capt. Hunter's Podcast

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Hello everyone and welcome back to Capela hunters podcast thank you so much for tuning in thanks back reached out to members Abuellah's matter I've actually also reached out to members of black lives matter I'm wondering interview both of those empty I'm still waiting to hear back so let me just pause here just talk about why I wanted to talk to members of blue lives matter will I I am particularly troubled in the fact that they have taken directly co-opted black labs nerves now if members of law enforcement problem black lives matter if they think that as share Clark USA say black lives matter whatever the other problem with them law enforcement officials can have died log in an argument with members of it in say they're illegitimate that they're exaggerating claims accessible and whatever else black lives matter is complaining about that's fine but to co op the movement and say you know it's really Bob Blue matter this presents a little bit of problem because it makes us seem as if blue lives or police officers lives are directly against blackout lives matter now you may have people may have a problem on issue with black lives matter then that's fine but to co-opt the information to co up what the the whole movement and to put one against another there was a lieutenant I believe Jesse is a captain now trying to get her on the podcast in San Francisco leased department I believe her name is Yolanda Williams and I'm actually reaching out to her try to get around to podcast see is suing her department San Francisco Police Department for Racial Discrimination the things like that this is lieutenant at the time and she's I believe she's now a captain so whatever she's got going on she's got going on but part of her lawsuit claims that someone came up to her at one time What are you for black lives matter offering for lies Neider and for one entity particularly the police department to think that you ought to be directly opposed to black lives matter whether you agree with me is you're not at his very problematic and that's why I wanted to talk to members of blue lives matter and asked them why have you co opted this particular name may have a problem black lives matter that's fine I have a have a dialogue with them but to co-opt say not really buff black lives it is once again not help to build these bridges and bring these these two entities together the community input in this instance the black community is now seemed to be pitted against the police officers and this is a problem and I don't understand why they did that while they call themselves at I don't have a problem with any police organization being very supportive of other police officers being supportive of people trying to get the message out there if there's a group of people war saying that the police are always doing x. being up abusive aggressive and the police officer want to push back against that narrative that's fine nobody has a problem with that the problem with them bringing about information trying to get information out there that's all fine but to directly oppose the black lives matter organization I think is very very problematic and I had problem when I was police officer seeing other people in my police department had blue lives matter on their yes Boulez Matt yes police officers matter and that's why there's there's crimes already for assaulting police officers describes against salting firefighters when they're performing their duties or nurses or paramedics particular state of Connecticut these are all crimes when you assault on one for doing their job that's fine we get it blue lives matter police lives of always matt the issue that black lives matter whether you agree with it or not is that Gla- class have not seen added they seem to throw us away this has been done throughout history from slavery to Jim Crow to Lynchings to mass incarceration to underperforming schools underfund. the schools to the crack epidemic and we can see a certain disparity and how the crack epidemic was street in nineteen eighty two the current opioid epidemic. being treated now and this is the heart of what
