I hope all of the people that were bucking hard for #BlueLivesMatter come to the defense of DC police officer, Robert Parker. A black man walking, wearing a hoodie and jeans. Flashback to Trayvon Martin. Since he matched the description of a suspect, he was slammed to the ground. Parker said even though he did not resist arrest and announced that he was a police officer, he was punched and brutalized. #BlackManWalking
Thank God he didn’t have some tea and Skittles, or Parker would have been another murder. Instead, Parker is just the latest victim of police brutality. Another victim of the systematic bias in policing. Another hashtag. If the people that say Blue Lives Matter do not support their brother in blue, then it is apparent what this movement really stands for. Until then… #BlackLivesMatter #RobertParker
