Sheriff's Deputy Killed 'Execution-Style' in Texas — Crazy Sheriff Blames 'Blacks Lives Matters'

A seemingly psychotic Texas sheriff blamed the Black Lives Matter movement  for the death of the deputy, claiming that the movement was responsible for “dangerous national rhetoric” regarding police. Instead of blaming the tension between citizens and police on police brutality and police shootings of unarmed civilians, the sheriff said: "This rhetoric has gotten out of control. We’ve heard ‘black lives matter,’ ‘all lives matter.’ Well, cops’ lives matter too. So why don’t we just drop the qualifier, and just say ‘lives matter,’ and take that to the bank.”

He blamed the tension between citizens and police on activists instead of on police brutality and police murders of unarmed citizens as documented in numerous video recordings.

But in speaking about the incident, authorities also referenced the broader national conversation regarding the relationship between law enforcement and they communities they police. Hickman said there was a “dangerous national rhetoric” regarding police.

“At any point where the rhetoric ramps up to the point where calculated, cold-blooded assassination of police officers happen — this rhetoric has gotten out of control,” Hickman said. “We’ve heard ‘black lives matter,’ ‘all lives matter.’ Well, cops’ lives matter too. So why don’t we just drop the qualifier, and just say ‘lives matter,’ and take that to the bank.”
