8-31 The Scoot Show 110pm, All Lives Matter
Do LIVES matter? Whose? Let’s talk about the big national story over the weekend - a white Houston sheriff’s deputy (Darren Goforth-10 year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s office; husband & father of 2) shot dead at a suburban gas station...by Shannon J. Miles, a black man whose criminal record includes convictions for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct with a firearm.) Sheriff Ron Hickman said the attack was “clearly unprovoked...and their assumption is that Goforth was a target because he wore a uniform.” Saturday the chief urged everybody to change the conversation from “Black Lives Matter” ... then ALL lives matter...to LIVES matter. Do they? Are the “BlackLivesMatter” protests inspiring hate against police? The D.A. of Hickman & Harris Counties (Devon Anderson) gave an urgent plea, “it’s time for the silent majority to support law enforcement...it’s time to stop the dangerous rhetoric against police officers.” Do you think most Americans believe police lives matter? Do you believe most American believe Black lives matter...that ALL lives matter...that lives matter? Would you march in protest if a police officer was shot in your community?
