I will say, this is part of why I think "Blue Lives Matter" is stupid.

I'm not saying police lives don't matter. But no one is saying that. Absolutely no one. When a police officer dies in the line of duty, it makes national headlines. Even if he just gets in a traffic accident it will at least make local headlines in the nearest city. When there's a major incident, like what just happened in Colorado, it dominates the news. Because most of the time the cop killed is a hero, and our culture will always venerate our heroes, absolutely rightly in these cases.

And if you've ever been to an officer's funeral, or even just seen the procession driving from the church to the cemetery, you've seen how blue lives matter. You'll never see a better attended funeral. The death of an officer is a big, big, big deal.

But incidents like that unarmed guy killed in the hotel room... that shows that blue lives matter to the point that they take precedent over innocent lives. That cop shot and killed an innocent, unarmed guy. A drunken dipshit, sure, but it was still 100% the fault of the cop that the guy died. The cop pulled the trigger. And the system found he shouldn't be penalized for that. Killing an innocent person, with even a tiny shred of reason for it, is something blue lives are allowed to do. The system would rather keep futures of blue lives bright and out of jail than elevate the life of someone innocent they gunned down.

Blue lives matter. Everyone knows this. Every day we see evidence of this. But it's really frustrating when the system shows they matter more than an innocent person a cop mows down. We'll see if this cop sees any jail time.
