To the Editor:

As official spokesman for my group "All Lives Matter," I'm writing to say the group "Black Lives Matter" is, in part, based on a lie. Their mantra they chant as they march "Hands up-don't shoot" is, in itself, a lie.

This never happened in the case of the shooting by a police officer of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael Brown has been painted as a victim by the Black community. This couldn't be further from the truth. He was a thug and a criminal who had just committed strong armed robbery of a store clerk for a box of Swisher Sweet cigars before his shooting.

The police officer confronted him and his friend, and he attacked the officer and tried to get his gun. He ended up being shot and killed. No, "Hands up, don't shoot!" was ever said by Mr. Brown. Witnesses came forth and claimed such, but were proved to be lying and should have gone to jail for inciting violence. The media is to blame also, as they kept showing a picture of Mr. Brown when he was about 14 years old, to portray him as a sweet, young boy. If "Black Lives Matter" really wants to do some good, go to Chicago where blacks are killing blacks everyday.

If they think they are doing their cause any good by blocking freeways and interstate highways, they are dead wrong. What right do you have, I ask, blocking people from going home after working all day or from going to work? Some of you should try it yourself. You may not have so much free time on your hands.

In closing, I'll say the media should show the pictures of all the white police officers killed by blacks as they like to do the other way around.
