[Ed. – What could possibly go wrong?]
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is pushing a movement to “defund the police” — the group reportedly plans to develop an armed branch of “peace officers” to patrol cities.
BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome said the group hopes to imitate the Black Panthers Party, The Daily Mail reported.
“We prepare to stop these murders by any means necessary,” Newsome said, echoing a call to violence first uttered by Malcolm X.
“We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities,” Newsome said. “You know what it’s like to see a taser pointed at a 7-year-old, you know what it’s like to see a 67-year-old black woman … pepper sprayed and pushed to the ground?”
“We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.”
Newsome said he attended a conference in Los Angeles in which BLM officials laid out a plan called “Black Opts.”
