NEW YORK (Christian Examiner) - A police officer in Birmingham, Alabama was savagely attacked by a suspect the other day. Pistol-whipped - blood covered his face and body. He was sprawled on the pavement.
But instead of lending a helping hand, a crowd of bystanders posted photos on Facebook and Twitter. "Pistol pimped," "Whipped his a** to sleep" -- that's what they wrote.
There was no wall-to-wall cable news coverage. There were no headlines reading, "White Cop Beaten by Black Suspect." There were no massive marches with protesters chanting, "Police lives matter."
In recent days, police officers have been murdered in Shreveport, Louisiana and Memphis, Tennessee. If you recall, the White House memorialized Michael Brown and Eric Garner. But they have ignored the murders of police officers Sean Bolton and Thomas LaValley.
For whatever reason, when white cops have been assassinated by black assailants, the White House has been conspicuously quiet. Could it be that they, too, have embraced the mantra that only black lives matter?
