With tensions at an all time high between police and civilians, a Pennsylvania mother, whose son was arrested, placed blame where it belongs. Is it the so called racist cops? The gangs? Nope, she blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for her son’s incarceration.

According to the Associated Press, “They are in jail for doing what Black Lives Matter wanted them to do: shoot at cops,” Luz Rentas wrote in a statement given to a number of news organizations over the weekend. “The truth is that these are two punk kids following the orders of an irresponsible organization and now they’re gonna pay for it.”
As expected, the co-organizer of a Black Lives Matter chapter in Lancaster said the group rejects using violence to solve societal problems. But statistics have shown that most attacks on cops recently have been influenced to some extent by the Black Lives Matter movement.
Officers in Borough of Columbia were responding to a report of gunshots near a cemetery around 3:30a.m. Friday when their own vehicle came under fire. No officers were in injured in the ambush attack.
Marquell Rentas, 17, and Trenton Nace, 18, were arrested and jailed on $2 million bail. The two boys, who are cousins, face charges including attempted homicide of a law enformcent officer. According to court documents, Rentas told officers during his arrest, “I was shooting at you,” and then cursed at police.
This is not unexpected as the Black Lives Matter movement has opened the door to increased violence against cops, vandalism, and out of control protests across the country. Impressionable young adults who think they are acting for a “cause” will end up jailed, with no help from the BLM movement.
Now these two are young, but certainly old enough to know right from wrong. They should be held accountable for their actions and shown that if you attack our officers, you will have to pay for the crime accordingly.
