It’s alarming that our culture is more outraged by good police officers who shoot and injure black criminals than they are outraged by (black) criminals who kill good police officers. And it’s also alarming that our culture is also much more outraged by what police officers did to Blake than what Blake allegedly did to his ex-girlfriend. But that’s because critical race theory or social justice isn’t concerned about helping victims of injustice—it’s only concerned about harming perceived oppressors.
It’s not justice to justify the wicked, and it’s not justice to condemn the innocent. It’s not justice to justify criminals like Jacob Blake. It’s not justice to condemn good police officers. It’s not just an injustice—it’s an abomination before the Lord.
Proverbs 17:15 says: “He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.”
Last month in Kenosha, Wisconsin, two police officers responded to a 911 call from Jacob Blake’s ex-girlfriend. She made the 911 call because Jacob Blake had stolen her car keys after he violated a restraining order she had filed against him.
She filed the restraining order against him a month earlier in July, after Blake allegedly broke into her home to violently and sexually abuse her. So when police officers arrived at the scene, they already had a warrant to arrest him.
However, when the police officers attempted to arrest Jacob Blake, he resisted arrest.
