Black Lives Matter has made its name off of being anti-police, and a new report out of Baltimore proves we’ve been right all along.

The group rose to prominence after strong arm robbery suspect Mike Brown was shot to death after attacking a police officer in St. Louis, Missouri a few years back. Despite the officer’s shooting being determined as justified, the group ran with the lie that Brown had his hands in the air and was saying “don’t shot” before Officer Wilson opened fire.

Forensic evidence told a completely different story, but that didn’t stop BLM from perpetuating the lie and growing a nationwide movement. Not long after Brown was killed, another suspect, Freddy Gray, ended up dying in Baltimore Police custody, causing mass riots, looting, and other civil disobedience, as well as demands from BLM for police to back off of their presence in their neighborhoods.

Thanks to the leftist mayor, police were forced to comply. Ever since, the murder rate in the city has skyrocketed, and now BLM is eating crow as they, get this, blame the police for the increased murders.

Breitbart News has more:

Baltimore has now experienced higher murder rates for three years in a row after riots and BLM-sponsored protests began rocking the city after the death of Freddie Gray, a suspect who died in police custody in the spring of 2015, National Public Radio (NPR) reported.

Since the riots, police morale has collapsed, and city officials began planning a lighter police footprint in response to complaints of residents and protest leaders.

But now, black leaders are blaming cops for the spiraling murder rate, saying that the police pullback has put them in danger.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Baltimore activist Rev. Kinji Scott, now blames City Hall for leaving the streets unprotected.

“We wanted the police there,” Scott insisted. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

However, a statement from activists at the time said that’s exactly what they wanted. BLM released a list of 19 demands, one of which wanted police banned from certain neighborhoods to create “safe spaces” for thugs.

The reverend’s claims also seem to fly in the face of a list of 19 demands issued by protesters in 2015, one of which demanded that police be barred from entering certain buildings or parts of neighborhoods they had designated as “safe” from police. Clearly, the protesters wanted police removed from Baltimore’s neighborhoods. But now that they’ve gotten their wish, community leaders have suddenly realized what a bad idea such a pullback is.

That’s not to mention, protesters were also seen wearing shirts that said things such as “disarm the police” and others stating they wanted to kill cops. Let’s also not forget the infamous “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon” chants we’ve repeatedly heard.

But despite all of this, Scott still insists that it’s the police – not the thugs who believe they have free reign to kill at will – who are at fault for the skyrocketing murders in the city.

And of course we want to delineate the whole culture of bad policing that exists—nobody denies that—but as a result of this, we don’t see the level of policing we need in our community to keep the crime down in our cities that we are seeing bleed to death.

Someone needs to explain to Scott and his leftist supporters that when you demand something and then get it, you shouldn’t cry about the results. First off, it’s not the cops who are out telling these thugs to kill one another – that’s the result of massive failures in raising children in these communities – and secondly, when you demand that the only people who bring law and order to these communities – police – back off, you give a green light to said thugs to do what thugs do.

This reporter, along with just about every rational-thinking person in America, predicted this would happen and we were told we were wrong. Now that it actually happened, do you think they’ll believe us the next time we try to warn them?
