Obama To Meet With Community Agitators For Ferguson Discussions

Will they be discussing how to keep people who are part of his voting base from rioting and looting and vandalizing and burning cars and buildings? Or simply blaming the police, whipping up the emotions as is typical?

(The Hill) President Obama on Monday will focus on the relationship between local police and the communities they protect and serve in the wake of sometimes violent protests in Ferguson, Mo.

Obama will meet with Cabinet members to discuss a review the president ordered in August of federal funding and programs that provide equipment to state and local law enforcement agencies, according to the White House.

Law enforcement officials were criticized for their militarized response to protests in Ferguson after a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown. A grand jury last week refused to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the case.

There’s no doubt that police may have been a bit heavy handed in the beginning, and there is a concern with all their militarized equipment. That said, as time went on it became apparent that it was needed, what with all the rioting and violence, including attacks on law enforcement officers.

After meeting with his Cabinet, Obama will gather young civil rights leaders to the Oval Office, the White House said. Topics for that discussion will include the mistrust between law enforcement and communities of color.

In other words, the police will bear the brunt of the blame, rather than communities with lots of crime and a bad attitude towards law and order.

Later Monday, the president will meet with elected officials, community, civil rights and faith leaders, and law enforcement officials. That meeting will center on ways communities and law enforcement can work together to build trust to strengthen neighborhoods.

Here’s an idea: stop cursing the police, stop throwing things at the police, don’t charge the police, and listen to the police when they say “Stop! Get on the ground!” Trust is a two way street. Yes, there are bad and/or overbearing/overzealous police officers and police departments out there. Everyone wants to simply focus on law enforcement, while ignoring the problems in the community. What kind of community is Ferguson when the loot and burn their own business?

As Breitbart notes, hyper-Progressive NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio will be in attendance, because it’s important for him to be there to offer his advice on how to take over a town and implement policies that increase the crime rate.

Also, while not officially announced, Al Sharpton may well be in attendance, because, we all know that when you need a voice of reason and peaceful intent, Sharpton is the guy you call.

Expect this to result in Blaming The Police and creation of more victimhood.
