Rocky Mount Police Officer Thomas Robertson was arrested this past week for trespassing inside the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. while his colleagues were busy murdering Ashli Babbitt in a different part of the building. Robertson was busted because he had been photographed on and about the Capitol Building multiple times. Those photos included a selfie that featured him with fellow officer Jacob Fracker in front of the John Stark Statue inside the building. Fracker was also arrested and faces the same charges as Robertson (https://copblaster.com/blast/34391/officer-jacob-fracker-charged-for-trespassing-on-capitol-hill). Those charges are one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
Robertson talked about he incident on social media saying "CNN and the Left are just mad because we actually attacked the government who is the problem and not some random small business ... The right IN ONE DAY took the f***** U.S. Capitol. Keep poking us." He posted the comments on Fracker's Facebook page in support of Fracker and others involved in the mostly peaceful occupation protest. One of his full statements read:
"So... If you don't support a certain political party you can't support a movement??? LOL. If you haven't been watching the news one of the people arrested in the capital was a BLM activist. If you think for one second that congress cares about black lives.....you aren't watching the news or paying attention to what they are doing for the black community.... jack **** Congress and government are BOTH our enemies. They are keeping the black community on the virtual plantation long after reasonable people FOUGHT AND ******* DIED to rid our Country of the pestilence of slavery. Both of the men in your post have stood with you when most people wanted to deal with you with tear gas and shields. Both of them have shed more blood for you than the ENTIRE US CONGRESS. By all means, keep up the circle of victimized people that makes you feel better." - Tom Robertson
That has got to one of the most honest things we have ever heard a cop say. Congress does not care about black lives. There is a small minority of people in Congress that do, but there are only about 50 of them and they are all black. They don't have the numbers needed to get the rest of Congress to do anything meaningful for the black community. They are keeping black people on a virtual plantation. Congress and government are both our enemies. They are Robertson's enemy, they are the enemies of black people, and they are our enemies as well. We don't know about his statements regarding his desire not to tear gas people, but if that is not true it would be an about face from the rest of his words. Officer Robertson clearly knows who the real enemies of the American people are. Now we just want to know why he has been helping our enemies by enforcing their laws.
Officer Robertson also said:
"PS. Here's the picture in question and I am PROUD of it. It shows two men actually willing to put skin in the game. If you are too much of a coward to risk arrest, being fired, and actual gun fire to secure your rights., you have no words to speak I value. Enjoy your feel good protests and fame. I'll simply accept a 'Thank You' for the very blanked of freedom that you live and sleep under." - Tom Robertson
Officer Robertson once again hits the nail on the head with his honesty. Only men that are actually willing to put skin in the game are the ones worth anything. If you are too much of a coward to risk arrest, being fired, and actual gun fire to secure your rights then your words have no value. People that simply show up at protests to walk around and make themselves feel good by claiming that they support the right thing are a bunch of lames incapable or really changing anything. The Women's March was a good example. Millions of women wasted their time accomplishing nothing more than showing people that a lot of women hate Trump. A small fraction of that number willing to do all that is necessary to secure their rights would have achieve much more. That is why the government works so hard to stigmatize protests that are more than peaceful because they know that if enough people stop playing by their rules that they will have to start making concessions. That is why movements like Black Lives Matter are forced to riot sometimes because just standing around with their things in their hands would get them nowhere. It was why the Unabomber was forced to unabomb because otherwise there was no way that one man could get the New York Times and other newspapers to publish his manifesto. Strength is not in numbers unless those numbers are of people like Tom Robertson.
