Black Lives Matter just got served a dose of reality as police officers walked off the job when the WNBA players emerged wearing warm-up shirts with an offensive message on them.
Black Lives Matter applauded the move by the WNBA players to wear the shirts, but police officers across the country are finding the phrase “Black Lives Matter” to be synonymous with a cop hate message.
Here is what was just reported…
From Star Tribune:
Four off-duty Minneapolis police officers working the Minnesota Lynx game at Target Center on Saturday night walked off the job after the players held a news conference denouncing racial profiling, then wore Black Lives Matter pregame warm-up jerseys.
Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis Police Federation, the union that represents rank-and-file officers, praised them for quitting. “I commend them for it,” he said.
Kroll said the four officers also removed themselves from a list of officers working future games. He did not know who the officers were. “Others said they heard about it and they were not going to work Lynx games,” he said.
Asked if other officers will fill in for those who quit, Kroll said, “If [the players] are going to keep their stance, all officers may refuse to work there.”
The three-time WNBA champions wore black T-shirts that read “Change starts with us, justice and accountability” and on the back had Philando Castile’s and Alton Sterling’s names along with “Black Lives Matter” and a Dallas Police Department emblem.
Here’s what the shirts looked like:
When the officers saw them, they hit the door!
