Wow! Here’s something you don’t see (or hear) everyday. In today’s politically correct society, few people in positions of authority actually speak out or speak up for common sense. Too often, they allow themselves to be bullied by corporations, the media, or vocal activists into keeping quiet. But in New York City, a judge spoke the truth to a convicted felon: “Black lives don’t matter to black people with guns.”
As reported in The Washington Times, the judge made his statement as he passed out a 24- to 26-year prison sentence to the thug.
“Black lives matter,” Justice Edward McLaughlin told 24-year-old Tareek Arnold as he sentenced him in Manhattan Supreme Court, the New York Post reported.
“I have heard it, I know it, but the sad fact is in this courtroom, so often what happens is manifestations of the fact that black lives don’t matter to black people with guns,” the judge said.
Arnold, who is black, was convicted for the attempted murder of Jamal McCaskill, also black, after shooting him four times at close range on June 8. Arnold, who authorities say was a member of a gang called Forty Wolves, later escaped from police custody with his hands cuffed behind his back and remained on the lam for almost a month. The jury also convicted him of escape, gun possession and assault, the Post reported.
If a white police officer gets attacked and shoots back, the media is all up in arms. Barack Obama is out leading the charge of racism. And yet, every single day in this country, countless blacks are being killed by other blacks. It’s an epidemic, and does anyone truly care?
