If only liberals would consider the plight of young girls as they attempt to allow gender confused young boys into the girl’s bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms
(GMA) Peaceful protesters crowded Charlotte’s first city council meeting since the cop shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, with over 50 people speaking out against police violence.
But none of them stood out Monday quite as much as a young girl.
Zianna Oliphant, her hair done up in braids and tears streaking her face, brought into focus the stress police shootings place on children, as well as the pain the black community of Charlotte has suffered in the wake of Scott’s death last week.
“I’ve been born and raised in Charlotte. And I never felt this way until now and I can’t stand how we’re treated,” the grade-school girl said, wiping away tears.
She expressed the hardship that children face when a parent dies. Scott himself, who was African-American, had seven children.
“It’s a shame that we have to go to their graveyard and bury them. And we have tears. We shouldn’t have tears. We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side,” she said.
It’s a shame when that parent has an extensive criminal history, including violence and threats. Some of that violence and threats included use of a firearm. And included felony convictions. And restraining orders by his wife. And refusing to put the gun down.
Little Zianna is a human shield of people who do little to clean up the violence and criminality in their own community. She’s more likely to be injured or killed by her own people in her own neighborhood than by a police officer. Sadly, she’s being indoctrinated into hating the police, who just want to stop criminals from harming or killing her. Kids like Zianna are being to taught to disrespect police officers, so when a confrontation ensues, things escalate. They’re being used by activists and racists for a narrative that puts them in harm’s way.
There was a simple solution for this whole affair: Keith Scott just needed to put the gun down. Comply with the officer’s commands. Maybe not be smoking pot while waiting for his kid to come home from school. In fact, he should never have had the gun in the first place, since he was a convicted felon. Funny how criminals fail to follow the law, wouldn’t you say?
And it’s funny how this mostly seems to happen in cities run by the Democratic Party.
