In the article, “Black Lives Matter is a movement that Can’t Be Sued,” (New York Times, Sept. 29) I had a tough time reading it because of my mixed opinions.
It is more considered a cult because of the activities that it does to promote and speak their voices. BLM has shown us that it is more than a social group because of the intense practices and unorthodox values.
The police officer is nailed with a rock and severely hurt.
A “social movement” isn’t a good enough excuse to let people off the hook and not be able to be sued.
This case is very frustrating because this is going to allow “social groups” to do more extreme protesting.
Another concerning issue that was brought up in the article was that the judge, a black male. I have to assume is biased due to his race and personal values. The outcome of the case would be completely different if the judge was not of the same race.
I firmly believe that the officer should be compensated to some extent for the pain and distress that he went through while protecting the citizens of the city.
