After Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo made a statement praising Black Lives Matter as a peaceful movement that does not wish to harm police, the Austin Police Association posted a picture of graffiti attributed to the radical black group.
“Shoot the cops,” the sign read, along with, “Oink oink Bank bang.” The poster was signed “Black Lives Matter.”
This, even after Acevedo said: ”All they want is to have police officers that are respectful, that treat people as part of the community and don’ treat them like they’re an occupying army and we get that.”
He also dismissed the violent anti-cop rhetoric: ”There’s some people trying to hijack that movement by saying things like we should go kill cops, we should just kill white people. That’s just crazy people, those aren’t legitimate members of Black Lives Matter.”
(Austin Police Association President Ken) Casaday said the note was discovered by an officer who responded to a 9-1-1 call at the store and went to use the restroom. He says they’re now working to identify who wrote it.
In the meetings, Acevedo said it was clear the organizers of the Police Lives Matter are not in opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement, rather they were inspired to hold the rally based on a similar rally that was held in another Texas city. Acevedo said he hopes people will realize the public can support both movements.
There have been rumors that a group plans to disturb both rallies, Acevedo said police will be present to make sure everything runs smoothly. The rallies are set for next Saturday at 10 am. The Black Lives Matter rally is at the State Capitol. The Police Lives Matter rally is starting at police headquarters and the crowd will march to the State Capitol.
Here’s a picture of the poster:
Criminal mischief? How about death threats? Or domestic terrorism? How many more cops have to be killed before this is dealt with?
By the way, if the chant seems familiar, that’s because it’s the same one used by armed members of the New Black Panther Party as they marched on the police facility where Sandra Bland died.
Acevedo needs to take lessons from Sheriff David Clarke…
