Violence against police officers continues to grow at an alarming rate. This time, the victim was a 25-year-old black female police officer. And Black Lives Matter has absolutely nothing to say.
Alastasia Bryant is a corrections officer at Riker’s Island in New York. She was off-duty visiting family and friends in Brooklyn, sitting in her car, when a dark-colored Honda pulled up next to her, and someone inside the vehicle began firing. She was about to leave for her shift when the shots rang out. One of the bullets struck her in the head, killing her.
Chillingly, the attack appears to have been planned, with officials saying that they believe her attacker was waiting for her to arrive.
We know by now that Black Lives Matter doesn’t care if police officers die, but you would think that this being a black woman, they would protest her death, too. But apparently, since she works for law enforcement, her life doesn’t matter at all to them.
This tragic and horrific attack is completely unacceptable. Whoever did it needs to be brought to justice — and Bryant deserves to have her life and her service honored, too.
