I do not now nor will I ever endorse random murder. There are times and situations where an armed response is required, and it would do everyone to know their own line in the sand, but this is obviously not that. This is BLM killing Black fathers. This was not trying to stop it, this was trying to enflame it and make it worse. Notice they are attacking police departments specifically who were actually trying to make peace with their citizens.
At this point, my assumption is that BLM has figured if they ever make peace then they are out of a job. So they are doing their damndest to deny peace. This includes provoking to riot over controversial maybe-victims while ignoring the obviously and unequivocally innocent dead.
Where I differ, I think, is I believe there is something deeper going on here than a bunch of pissed off BLM hitting random cops. It's almost like they are targeting good cops in departments where they were trying to develop an actual accord with the community. Attacking the one thing that has any hope of bringing this madness to a fair and peaceful end. So maybe I see it even worse than purely random murders because the attacks seem targeted against peace specifically.
So what I figure is a handful of BLM with hard training and says, hey this is a nice gravy train that runs out if we win. If we turn up the pressure it will force more people into our arms. So they look for cleaner cops to kill. They look in departments where they were doing heavy reform to their escalation of force policies, not rewarding improvements but punishing them, in order to perpetuate the problem, and guarantee them a gravy train into perpetuity. Is what I think.
Either way, if we stretched all credibility and suspended all disbelief to color this justified, then even then it was the dead wrong target, the wrongest targets on the whole chessboard. Let's go out and figure out which police departments have decided that there may be a police violence problem and are actually trying to do something about it and make it better. Now, out from among those departments, let's pick cops that are upstanding and sincere about embracing the new policies of rapprochement with the citizens, and a more relaxed escalation of force doctrine, and those cops specifically in those departments specifically are the ones we want dead, right? The only ones who by example were already doing the things we claim to be demanding. It doesn't make any sense unless you figure someone is doing this cynically to perpetuate the division for whatever reason, and historically the most likely reason to perpetuate division is for profit.
