Smyrna, GA - When a Smyrna Police Department officer picked up his order of doughnuts from Krispy Kreme, he wasn't expecting the surprise message that came with it: Black Lives Matter.
Smyrna police officers have been unable to speak up about this incident due to a strict social media policy which prohibits it. However, a former Smyrna Police Department employee, Daniel Barnes, contacted us to tell us about the incident.
The unidentified officer was picking up his order at the Krispy Kreme at 4560 S Cobb Dr SE in Smyrna on Wednesday. When he got the box of doughnuts, "Black Lives Matter" was written on the box by an employee.
Here's the picture of the box:
For those who are not aware, this is extremely disrespectful to law enforcement. Ever since Officer Darren Wilson was forced to defend his life by shooting Michael Brown, Black Lives Matter has been spreading misinformation and lies about police which have resulted in the assassinations of police officers.
Officer Darren Wilson was forced to shoot Michael Brown to protect his life when the violent criminal attacked him in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014. Afterwards, the media and Black Lives Matter painted a picture of Michael Brown as a good kid, who would never attack a police officer. This was despite the fact that Brown had just committed a felony robbery moments before he was contacted by Officer Darren Wilson. The lies continued with "Hands-Up Don't Shoot," based off of the claim that Brown was shot while his hands were up, surrendering. A DOJ investigation, which included the medical-examiners report and multiple eye-witnesses (who were black), determined that Brown was shot while charging at Officer Wilson after Brown had already brutally attacked the officer in his car.
Ever since, Black Lives Matter has continued to spread a false narrative that police officers shoot black men because of the color of their skin. Multiple studies have show that this is not accurate. The percentage of black males shot by law enforcement is disproportionate to the percentage of the population that is made up of black males, but to assume that this is evidence of racial bias, you'd have to expect that officer-involved shootings are random acts of violence, rather than prompted by an attack on somebody's life. When studies account for the actual reason that police officers use deadly force (to save their life or another's,) police officers are less likely to use deadly force against black suspects.
Based on Black Lives Matter's claims of racial bias. Law enforcement officers have been assassinated in New York, Dallas, and Baton Rouge as revenge for the perceived injustices against black men by law enforcement. While we can directly link those terrorist attacks to Black Lives Matter's rhetoric, if not Black Lives Matter directly, we can only suspect that their false messaging plays a significant factor in the massive increase in law enforcement officers being ambushed and shot.
Because Black Lives Matter's false narrative fuels violence against police officers, writing "Black Lives Matter" on a police officer's doughnut box is not making a civil rights statement, it's a slap in the face to every law enforcement officer in America. Law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to protect their communities. Writing a message to a police officer with the name of a group which spawns violence against police is both offensive and unacceptable.
We reached out to the Krispy Kreme manager about this incident. They acknowledged that they were aware that it had happened and they said only that they were "taking care of it." It's not clear what their final response will be, but we certainly hope that the company releases a message supporting police officers and that the employee responsible will no longer be employed by the company.
