Matthew Vadum writes at Frontpagemag.com:
A Black Lives Matter supporter [named Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks] was killed by police yesterday after he shot a rookie Kentucky State Trooper to death following a high speed chase.
This murder is the latest in a series of cop-killings nationwide committed by aggrieved African-Americans who falsely claim blacks are perennial victims of racial discrimination at the hands of law enforcement.
The virulently racist Black Lives Movement, which formed after the death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in 2012, has been promoted by President Obama who has gone out of his way to foment race-based resentment and cop-hatred.
The movement's members, who idolize convicted, unrepentant cop-killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal, have declared "war" on law enforcement and openly call for police officers to be assassinated.
Murdered trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder had "joined the state police force earlier this year after graduating from a police academy" and "was a U.S. Navy veteran and a former SEAL," Vadum writes.
Ponder "was offered a track scholarship to Western Kentucky University but turned it down to serve his country. He was also a track star in high school who stayed in touch [with] his track coach, James Webb, and babysat his children, WHAS-TV in Louisville reports," Vadum continues.
"Webb, a black man, said 'I care about all my athletes, it was just a special relationship from the times he was in Hawaii and stationed everywhere, he always kept me abreast on what's going on'," Vadum writes.
In sharp contrast, "Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks will be remembered for what he was: a cop-killing hood who seized an opportunity to strike a blow for an evil, racist, anti-American cause," Vadum concludes.
