(Natural News) Despite calls from the domestic terrorist group to defund and disband the police, Black Lives Matter (BLM) will now have a presence at every police station in San Francisco, thanks to a recent vote by the San Francisco Police Commission (SFPC).
Moving forward, San Francisco police stations will now be required to display BLM posters inside their facilities, defying strong opposition from union members. To keep the BLM mob happy, each police station will have to find and put up a poster at least 32 by 24 inches in size, and they will have 30 days to do so before being in violation of the order.
“The poster must ‘prominently and exclusively’ feature the phrase ‘Black lives matter’ and it must be displayed in a place visible to station visitors,” reports indicate about the resolution, which was unanimously approved by the SFPC.
To placate those who expressed outrage that the department would vote to support a radical domestic terrorist group that is linked to violence against innocent people, the decision was made to allow the posters to say “Black lives matter,” without a capital “L” or “M” to sound more generic.
“This came directly from the community,” claims Commissioner Dion-Jay Brookter, who helped co-write the resolution. “We need to show unity and solidarity and say that black lives do matter. My life matters. My five-year-old niece’s life matters.”
San Francisco Police Officers Association expresses concerns, says pushing political agendas “establishes a new precedent”
Police Chief Bill Scott, who also has black skin, indicated his support for the resolution as well. In Scott’s view, stating publicly that black lives matter is a great way to show the world that San Francisco police officers are supportive of people with darker skin tones.
“As I have said before, people are talking to us and we have to listen. Yeah, we’re listening. Yes, we will support,” he is quoted as saying.
“Yes, we are fully committed to implementing this resolution, and as the person who is charged with speaking on behalf of the department – and I can speak for the command staff and members of this department – black lives do matter, and they matter to this police department.”
The San Francisco Police Officers Association, on the other hand, issued a letter of opposition to the proposal, warning that it “establishes a new precedent that raises concerns about introducing political agendas and wedge issues into the safe harbor of police stations.”
Rockne A. Lucia, a lawyer for this union, publicly emphasized that police stations are supposed to be places where citizens of all skin colors are free to seek help and assistance when they become victims of criminal activity. Police stations are not supposed to be “places for political endorsements or alignment with political organizations,” Lucia warned.
Police union president Tony Montoya agrees, having said in a statement that the San Francisco Police Department needs to put away all “soapboxes” and stop its “political grandstanding.”
As it turns out, San Francisco saw a 31 percent increase in homicides last month compared to the same month last year. Car break-ins have also become “rampant,” Montoya warns, emphasizing the fact that police officers throughout the city need to be focused on stopping crime, not perpetuating political movements.
“It’s time for the commissioners to get beyond hashtags, posters, and politics because our community is depending on them and all of us to make San Francisco a safer place for everyone,” Montoya further stated.
