Officer David Patrick Underwood was killed in Oakland during the riots. Just like retired police chief David Dorn in St. Louis, Underwood was African-American. Angela Underwood Jacobs, sister of the slain officer, spoke before a congressional hearing and asked an important question: Did his life matter?
“The heartbreak and the grief is inexplainable because it’s very, very hard to articulate when your entire world has been turned upside down. I do want to know, though, when I think about all of this is that — my brother wore a uniform, and he wore that uniform proudly. I’m wondering, where is the outrage for a fallen officer that also happens to be African-American?”

…….The problem is that the political left has the loudest microphone, because it includes not only politicians, but also most in the media and the entertainment industry. “Black Lives Matter” is how they signal their virture, even though it’s clear they don’t even think all black lives matter. Only the ones they can score political points off of.
Ms. Underwood-Jacobs deserves an answer to her question.
The black-on-black crime in their streets is deplorable.
If black lives really matter, they need to get into their ghettos and tell them to stop gang-banging each other.
