Video: Just Hours After Texas Deputy's Murder Black Lives Matter Chants "Pigs...Fry 'em Like Bacon" in Minnesota

VIDEO: Just Hours After Texas Deputy's Murder Black Lives Matter Chants "Pigs...Fry 'em Like Bacon" in Minnesota

Traffic disruptions and loud messages aren’t the only things memorable about Saturday’s Black Lives Matter march to the gates of the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul.

One of the chants heard from protesters is being called “disgusting” by rank and file St. Paul Police officers. Police Federation President Dave Titus says the threatening refrain is divisive, dangerous and won’t lead to improved police relations.

Along the way Saturday, protesters broke into a pointed refrain that has St. Paul police officers upset.

Marchers chanted in unison, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” WCCO TV reports.

What officers and many others find offensive is also protected free speech.  But in this particular case what is ironic is that those voicing the chant were also being protected by very officers targeted.

I'm afraid this kind of behavior is going to cost these "people" dearly in the future.
Perhaps they'll place the blame for their misfortune on the heads of Messrs Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Farrakhan, and others of their ilk, who empowered them to engage in this antisocial behavior.
Likely not..............

Is it even remotely possible that the attempt to show restraint in the Ferguson Missouri Event, in allowing the looting and destruction of private property to occur without intervention, and in the actions to placate the disgruntled rioters, has been used by an organization who WAS BEHIND THE OPERATION as evidence that their tactics achieved the desired objective.

Which was to get LEO to take a step back while their set took 2 steps forward.

Do you really believe the "black lives matter" movement isn't a directed offensive?

Revisit the history of Judea from the Judean revolt in 66ce. They thought they had won. Until the Legions showed up in 70ce. Under Vespasian Flavius and his son, Titus.

Free speech, the Police need to sing "Mammy".

Agree, perhaps on our own time, not IDing any police department, cops and family should protest and sing songs about killing these race haters and hoping that the Black lives folks" can police themselves cause we are stopping. Let the "majority" of Blacks who supposedly support us handle that for awhile. Keep you support away from us, we shall stay away from policing you. You get what you ask for.

Want to bet on who organized this march? You get 3 tries and the first two don't count.

I agree. It's time for Police to let these anti police thugs handle things. Police Lives Matter way over black thugs matter. There is no way to compare the two groups. Let's compare. One group tries to keep crime under control, the other group commits most of the crime. One group is working regular shifts to keep crime down, the other group must not work because they are always out marching. One group works irregular shifts,day or night without complaint,the other group complains about everything. Which group do you want to support. Be safe Police. Shoot straight, Don't hesitate. Police Lives Matter
