Obama Defends Black Lives Matter Movement
President Obama: All Lives Matter (The Daily Caller)
In a meeting with top law enforcement leaders Thursday, President Obama explained the “All Lives Matter” vs. “Black Lives Matter” question, ultimately saying, “I think everybody understands that all lives matter.”
“Everybody wants strong, effective law enforcement,” he continued. “Everybody wants their kids to be safe when they’re walking to school. Nobody wants to see police officers who are doing their job fairly hurt. Everybody understands it’s a dangerous job.”
Obama made the statement with representatives from the criminal justice community, including a representative from the newly formed “Law Enforcement Leaders To Reduce Crime And Incarceration” group.
