Black Law Enforcement Responds to the resent Shootings of two Black men by Police

As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement professionals, we send our condolences to the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

As Black law enforcement, when a questionable shooting arises to black people throughout America, we also feel the pain.

As Black Law Enforcement we are three degrees of separation when controversial police shootings happen. In many cases we know the victim, the victim is a family member, or we are the victims.

What is discouraging is that the media, community leaders, and our elected officials always ignore a genuine cause of police violence against Black people that is Institutional Racism in Law Enforcement and Economic Prejudice.

To date, police have killed 561 people, and the majority of the dead are people of color.

In an age of President Obama’s 21st Century Policing model, it has failed to change the culture of policing when it come to people of color and the have-nots.

The first step of the 21st Century Policing Model is Accountability, Legitimacy, and Transparency. For the people that are affected the most, these policies have not changed the despair or the lack accountability, when law enforcement unjustly kills a loved one.

Black Law Enforcement Opposes FOP’s Endorsement of Trump

Blacks in Law Enforcement of America, USA is not surprised by the National endorsements of one of the Presidential candidates by the National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).

In our opinion and experience, the FOP has never been an organization that operated on behalf of African American Police Officers. This organization in the past has been anti-affirmation as well as opposed the promotion of African Americans in the police department as well as opposed to the very important policy of police officers living in the city they work. As Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we believe that residency is a major factor of accountability and is a core component in “Real Community Policing.”  READ MORE

Do Black Lives Matter to the FOP? Black Members Do Not Actually Exist!

These assimilated brothers and sisters have - over the years - contributed hundreds of thousands - if not millions of dollars - to organizations like the FOP. The same FOP that works tirelessly to retard and abate the recruitment, hiring, training, assignments, and promotions of officers of color. Generally, bargaining agents have no love for its constituency. The driving force of these agents is to line their pockets, improve their assignments and to pretend that they embrace and value diversity.

I invite any of these coopted brothers and sisters to make inquiries of the FOP locally, nationally, and internationally to determine the scope and the depth of the FOP's diversity in positional, executive, programmatic, legislative, and policy-making tiers.  READ MORE
