On the 26th of June, The White House tweeted, “President @realDonaldTrump has signed an executive order to ensure anyone that destroys or vandalizes a monument, memorial, or statue is prosecuted to the fullest extent.”
The President of the United States literally put a new law into place so that everyone in America fully understands that damaging monuments and statues of racists white men will have extreme consequences.
Yet there is no lack of urgency to put an executive order to put in place that removes the impunity from police that murder Black American citizens almost every single day.
In other words, murders of Black Americans by the hands of American police will NOT be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Breonna Taylor’s killers are still free, and NOT prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The Atlanta Voice reports, “The outcry has reverberated for weeks online and at demonstrations nationwide: Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor. But three months after plainclothes detectives serving a warrant busted into her Louisville, Kentucky, apartment and shot the 26-year-old Black woman to death, only one of the three officers who opened fire has lost his job. No one is facing criminal charges.”
According to the president, stone statues of dead racist white men are more important and worth protecting than Black lives in America.
