Charges filed against grandmother trying to protect a child
Previously we reported on a child and his grandmother getting assaulted and arrested by the police. The incident started when the police grabbed Dr. Frye’s grandson to arrest him, putting him into a choke hold. This understandably upset his grandmother, and she attempted to pull the officer off of her grandson. Under Missouri’s new “Blue Alert/Blue Lives Matter” law, she is being charged with a felony assault on a police officer because of this.
No recourse for those assaulted by police
Meanwhile, we see no such charges filed against the officers assaulting both the child and the grandmother. This “Blue Lives Matter” law is being used in the exact way that lawmakers intended it: To punish protesters who resist arrest. As such, it generally grants greater immunity to officers from receiving any potential backlash from their abuse towards citizens. However, there continues to be no greater protections for the citizens from officers assaulting and murdering them. Complaints continue to be overlooked, and officers continue to be allowed to do as they wish.
