Where are BLM? The officer was black. Oh but his life doesn't matter because the blacks can't tie it to a race thing. Baltimore is experiencing record #'s of black on black murders and shooting. It's God punishing an immoral lying uncivilized race who lie about everything like they care about black lives and the worst that they are Christian. Most blacks are no more Christian then an ant but since most lie constantly they claim they are.
