This is what we know about Black Lives Matter from their Wikipedia page, Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an organized movement in the United States advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality against African-American people.
The movement returned to national headlines and gained further international attention during the global George Floyd protests in 2020 following Floyd’s murder by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. An estimated 15 million to 26 million people participated (though not all are “members” of the organization) in the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests in the United States, making Black Lives Matter one of the largest movements in U.S. history. The movement has advocated to defund the police and invest directly into black communities and alternative emergency response models.
But the real question is are they really peaceful?
So many businesses got looted people died innocent people died, police officers died on duty, but what we hear from the mainstream media is that these protests are peaceful.
Another alleged murder was ignored by the mainstream media, a 24-year-old mother who was killed by a Black Lives Matter mob in Indianapolis last week, allegedly for saying “All Lives Matter.”
The case hardly got any media coverage and not one of the mainstream media heavyweights decided to report about the story.
Jessica Doty Whitaker was killed following an altercation with Black Lives Matter members who were upset that she and her fiance had said “All Lives Matter” last Sunday.
From Fox 59:
“According to the victim’s family, the shooting started with an argument over Black Lives Matter and language. Eventually the two sides separated and walked away from each other, until witnesses claim the killer opened fire from a nearby bridge and ran away,”
“It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Claire waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot,” said the victim’s fiancé Jose Ramirez.
Jose admits he returned fire, but didn’t hit anyone. He says Jessica Doty Whitaker leaves behind a little boy.
“She shouldn’t have lost her life. She’s got a 3-year-old son she loved dearly,” said Ramirez.
Explaining to Jessica’s son Greyson that he’ll never see his mom again has been the hardest part for the family.
“It’s hard to tell him his mom is in heaven and if you want to talk to her you have to look up and say, ‘I love you mom,’” said Ramirez.
Just one week earlier, two people were shot on the same part of canal. During one of those shootings, a 14-year-old identified as Curtis White Junior died during what police describe as an attempted armed robbery.
“Our message is that the canal is still a safe to go,” said IMPD Capt. Jerry Leary.
Jessica’s family simply wants her killer caught.
“We’re going through a lot. The 3-year-old boy doesn’t even understand really,” said Ramirez. “I just want justice for Jessica and her son and her family.”
So far police have not released any suspect information, but anyone with information on the case can still contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
Police are still looking for suspects and have released a video from the area of the murder.
A GoFundMe has been launched to help pay for her funeral and take care of her young son.
Over $10,000 has been raised so far.
