On Barack Obama and violent crime, Michael Ramirez nails it. After all, if someone is breaking into your house in the middle of the night, do you call a community organizer?
Actually, if someone is breaking into your house, you might not want to wait until help arrives in any form. The National Rifle Association, America’s largest and most successful civil rights organization, reminds us of this:
It was very appropriate that on Friday, the day after the massacre of five Dallas police officers, The New York Times devoted nearly the whole top half of its front page to four enormous photos of the death of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a Minnesota police officer.
Hume: Obama Sees Things Through The Eyes Of An Aggrieved Black Activist Rather Than Of A President
By Ian Schwartz
The president has consistently chosen to see things through the eyes of an aggrieved black activist rather than of a president of all the people. He's not failed to speak out whenever a black is killed by a white police officer, but has said next to nothing about the continued slaughters of blacks by other blacks in the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, and other cities.
He has made his sympathy for the Black Lives Matter movement obvious and never mind that the whole premise of the movement seems to be fallacious. No case has given the movement more impetus than the false claim that Michael Brown was shot down in cold blood while trying to surrender to a cop in Ferguson, Missouri two years ago.
And now a study led by a black Harvard law professor has examined 15 years of crime data from 5 major cities and 2 counties. The study found that while police were more often likely to get physical with black suspects than with white ones, when it came to police shootings, there was no racial bias. Did you hear that, Mr. President? No racial bias.

When the president repeatedly assumes the worst about police, he sends a dangerous message.
