"My Own People Hate Me!" - Black Brooklyn Cop Slams "False Narrative Of Black Lives Matter"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Brooklyn, NY police officer Jay Stalien (via Facebook),

I have come to realize something that is still hard for me to understand to this day. The following may be a shock to some coming from an African American, but the mere fact that it may be shocking to some is prima facie evidence of the sad state of affairs that we are in as Humans.

I used to be so torn inside growing up. Here I am, a young African-American born and raised in Brooklyn, NY wanting to be a cop. I watched and lived through the crime that took place in the hood. My own black people killing others over nothing. Crack heads and heroin addicts lined the lobby of my building as I shuffled around them to make my way to our 1 bedroom apartment with 6 of us living inside. I used to be woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of gun fire, only to look outside and see that it was 2 African Americans shooting at each other.

It never sat right with me. I wanted to help my community and stop watching the blood of African Americans spilled on the street at the hands of a fellow black man. I became a cop because black lives in my community, along with ALL lives, mattered to me, and wanted to help stop the bloodshed.

As time went by in my law enforcement career, I quickly began to realize something. I remember the countless times I stood 2 inches from a young black man, around my age, laying on his back, gasping for air as blood filled his lungs. I remember them bleeding profusely with the unforgettable smell of deoxygenated dark red blood in the air, as it leaked from the bullet holes in his body on to the hot sidewalk on a summer day. I remember the countless family members who attacked me, spit on me, cursed me out, as I put up crime scene tape to cordon off the crime scene, yelling and screaming out of pain and anger at the sight of their loved ones taking their last breath. I never took it personally, I knew they were hurting. I remember the countless times I had to order new uniforms, because the ones I had on, were bloody from the blood of another black victim…of black on black crime. I remember the countless times I got back in my patrol car, distraught after having watched another black male die in front me, having to start my preliminary report something like this:

Suspect- Black/ Male, Victim-Black /Male.

I remember the countless times I canvassed the area afterwards, and asked everyone “did you see who did it”, and the popular response from the very same family members was always, “Fuck the Police, I ain't no snitch, Im gonna take care of this myself". This happened every single time, every single homicide, black on black, and then my realization became clearer.

I woke up every morning, put my freshly pressed uniform on, shined my badge, functioned checked my weapon, kissed my wife and kid, and waited for my wife to say the same thing she always does before I leave, “Make sure you come back home to us”. I always replied, “I will”, but the truth was I was never sure if I would. I almost lost my life on this job, and every call, every stop, every moment that I had this uniform on, was another possibility for me to almost lose my life again. I was a target in the very community I swore to protect, the very community I wanted to help. As a matter of fact, they hated my very presence. They called me “Uncle Tom”, and “wanna be white boy”, and I couldn’t understand why. My own fellow black men and women attacking me, wishing for my death, wishing for the death of my family. I was so confused, so torn, I couldn’t understand why my own black people would turn against me, when every time they called …I was there. Every time someone died….I was there. Every time they were going through one of the worst moments in their lives…I was there. So why was I the enemy? I dove deep into that question…Why was I the enemy? Then my realization became clearer.

I spoke to members of the community and listened to some of the complaints as to why they hated cops. I then did research on the facts. I also presented facts to these members of the community, and listened to their complaints in response. This is what I learned:

Complaint: Police always targeting us, they always messing with the black man.


Fact: A city where the majority of citizens are black (Baltimore for example) …will ALWAYS have a higher rate of black people getting arrested, it will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting stopped, and will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting killed, and the reason why is because a city with those characteristics will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks committing crime. The statistics will follow the same trend for Asians if you go to China, for Hispanics if you go to Puerto Rico, for whites if you go to Russia, and the list goes on. It’s called Demographics


Complaint: More black people get arrested than white boys.


Fact: Black People commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime. Data from the FBI shows that Nationwide, Blacks committed 5,173 homicides in 2014, whites committed 4,367. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined. Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.


Complaint: Blacks are the only ones getting killed by police, or they are killed more.


Fact: As of July 2016, the breakdown of the number of US Citizens killed by Police this year is, 238 White people killed, 123 Black people killed, 79 Hispanics, 69 other/or unknown race.


Complaint: Well we already doing a good job of killing ourselves, we don’t need the Police to do it. Besides they should know better.


Fact: Black people kill more other blacks than Police do, and there are only protest and outrage when a cop kills a black man. University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012. Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

The more I listened, the more I realized. The more I researched, the more I realized. I would ask questions, and would only get emotional responses & inferences based on no facts at all. The more killing I saw, the more tragedy, the more savagery, the more violence, the more loss of life of a black man at the hands of another black man….the more I realized.

I haven’t slept well in the past few nights. Heartbreak weighs me down, rage flows through my veins, and tears fills my eyes. I watched my fellow officers assassinated on live television, and the images of them laying on the ground are seared into my brain forever. I couldn’t help but wonder if it had been me, a black man, a black cop, on TV, assassinated, laying on the ground dead... would my friends and family still think black lives mattered? Would my life have mattered? Would they make t-shirts in remembrance of me? Would they go on tv and protest violence? Would they even make a Facebook post, or share a post in reference to my death?

All of my realizations came to this conclusion.

Black Lives do not matter to most black people. Only the lives that make the national news matter to them. Only the lives that are taken at the hands of cops or white people, matter. The other thousands of lives lost, the other black souls that I along with every cop, have seen taken at the hands of other blacks, do not matter. Their deaths are unnoticed, accepted as the “norm”, and swept underneath the rug by the very people who claim and post “black lives matter”.


I realized that this country is full of ignorance, where an educated individual will watch the ratings-driven news media, and watch a couple YouTube video clips, and then come to the conclusion that they have all the knowledge they need to have in order to know what it feels like to have a bullet proof vest as part of your office equipment, “Stay Alive” as part of your daily to do list, and having insurance for your health insurance because of the high rate of death in your profession. They watch a couple videos and then they magically know in 2 minutes 35 seconds, how you are supposed to handle a violent encounter, which took you 6 months of Academy training, 2 – 3 months of field training, and countless years of blood, sweat, tears and broken bones experiencing violent encounters and fine tuning your execution of the Use of Force Continuum.


I realized that there are even cops, COPS, duly sworn law enforcement officers, who are supposed to be decent investigators, who will publicly go on the media and call other white cops racist and KKK, based on a video clip that they watched thousands of miles away, which was filmed after the fact, based on a case where the details aren’t even known yet and the investigation hasn’t even begun.


I realized that most in the African American community refuse to look at solving the bigger problem that I see and deal with every day, which is black on black crime taking hundreds of innocent black lives each year, and instead focus on the 9 questionable deaths of black men, where some were in the act of committing crimes.


I realized that they value the life of a Sex Offender and Convicted Felon, [who was in the act of committing multiple felonies: felon in possession of a firearm-FELONY, brandishing and threatening a homeless man with a gun-Aggravated Assault in Florida: FELONY, who resisted officers who first tried to taze him, and WAS NOT RESTRAINED, who can be clearly seen in one of the videos raising his right shoulder, then shooting it down towards the right side of his body exactly where the firearm was located and recovered] more than the lives of the innocent cops who were assassinated in Dallas protecting the very people that hated them the most.


I realized that they refuse to believe that most cops acknowledge that there are Bad cops who should have never been given a badge & gun, who are chicken shit and will shoot a cockroach if it crawls at them too fast, who never worked in the hood and may be intimidated. That most cops dread the thought of having to shoot someone, and never see the turmoil and mental anguish that a cop goes through after having to kill someone to save his own life. Instead they believe that we are all blood thirsty killers, because the media says so, even though the numbers prove otherwise.


I realize that they truly feel as if the death of cops will help people realize the false narrative that Black Lives Matter, when all it will do is take their movement two steps backwards and label them domestic terrorist.


I realized that some of these people, who say Black Lives Matter, are full of hate and racism. Hate for cops, because of the false narrative that more black people are targeted and killed. Racism against white people, for a tragedy that began 100’s of years ago, when most of the white people today weren’t even born yet.


I realized that some in the African American community’s idea of “Justice” is the prosecution of ANY and EVERY cop or white man that kills or is believed to have killed a black man, no matter what the circumstances are.


I realized the African American community refuses to look within to solve its major issues, and instead makes excuses and looks outside for solutions. I realized that a lot of people in the African American community lead with hate, instead of love. Division instead of Unity. Turmoil and rioting, instead of Peace.


I realized that they have become the very entity that they claim they are fighting against.

And ultimately, I realized that the very reasons I became a cop, are the very reasons my own people hate me, and now in this toxic hateful racially charged political climate, I am now more likely to die... and it is still hard for me to understand... to this day.

Smart man. He is correct. BLM is a bunch of horse shyt... Deray and Jack of twitrer are buddies and Twitter has let BLM spread their hate via Twitter. blue lives matter sign ripped down @ Dartmouth

Deray was arrested wearing the same Twitter hashtag shirt as Jack was wearing when he interviewed deray.

He nailed it.  Black Lives (don't ) Matter (when murdered by other blacks).

In the end, BLM is about demanding money from other people.

Blacks have always been racist, the media have simply buried it. Now however the Jewish/Communist media are legitimizing it so they can now be overly racist without consequence. This is why BLM doesn't care about black on black crime because that doesn't allow them to be racist. It's that simple. Should this really kick off the media need to be dealt with, they're the rot at the heart of the planet.

Why wouldn't blacks be as racists as whites?    Every race should have roughly the same percentage of people with Racial OCD.

Oh, to be a black man with higher than average black man IQ.


That has to suck.

"My Own People Hate Me!"

Well guess what…

The AVB (average black guy) with a documented sub-90 IQ mostly kills black guys.

Well, because you just happened to be wearing a blue suit with a shiny badge and are carrying doesn’t mean squat.

Most evil blacks who carry (illegally) don’t GAF about your life or your family.

Your life is no more worthwhile than a crack head in the gutter.

Deal with the evil and the destruction of your culture.


At least I am prepared.

Thank you, Barak Hussein Obama for uniting and strengthening the United States of America,

I am confident that Hillary would follow in your big black footprints.


(not racist at all,, just a matter of documented size.)


... but I am still wondering now about the validity of my genitalia and whether I shoud go with the Democrats and be free to transition to whatever gender or species I feel like at the moment.

Maybe I would feel more fulfilled in the little girls locker room....

Maybe not.. just thinking like a Ginsberg Euro-Law Democrat.

Given what appears to be a sincere effort on the author's part, I feel a bit of a churl, but it should be said that about half of what he writes are statist lies.


And, oh ... where were you when George Zimmerman was being pilloried in these united kangaroo courts of America? None of this was important enough for you to say or write anything until you got the notion that your own special snowflake life might be at risk.


Sorry, Pal, but I don't hear a plea for justice and reason; I hear, "Please don't shoot me. Hands up. Don't shoot."


Anyone wanna play?

SgtShaftoe's picture

You are correct.  For a better article on the current state of law enforcement read this:


"I would like to say the majority of LE out there do a great job, but it just aint so.The job attracts bullies, cowards, sloths and dullards at an alarming rate.” - from a 40 year veteran cop John Karriman


BTW: This story was on Gawker a few days ago.

OverTheHedge's picture

This is a Facebook post? Isn't Mr Policeman an erudite, accomplished author. He really does write ever so very well. Should I be suspicious? Is this propaganda? Is this just more disinformation from TPTB?

Am I too cynical?

Either this post has been edited to the extent that it is ghost-written, or this cop should be changing career. He might want to change career anyway, but that is a different matter. I wonder if he endorses the views so carefully laid out in the article attributed to him?

One cannot disavow one gang life, then embrace another just bc it's sancitoned by "law" and the right to kill.

About 30% of them have IQs higher than at least half the white folks. Now THOSE people I really feel bad for.

Regardless of the genetics in the  ME and North African  Arab/Black/Muslim population  there are not an insignificant number of outliers above 90 IQ.

But, if of conservative thought,  they are outliers and generally regarded as outcasts in liberal cultural Marxist societies such as exists in the US today.

Few Constitutional or conservative people of color get the time of day with the MSM.

I have had and have many very smart friends and business associates that are black…

do not ever call me racist or I will rip your girl or man tits off.

“clean and well spoken”.. so said the Democrat Joe Biden regarding the magic negro Obama.


Barney Fife's picture

So, there are regional differences in intelligence among races. In Africa, many nations have median IQs literally in the 60-70 range. These are often isolated tribes that have not had any significant genetic diversificaiton occurring. Among black populations globally, American blacks have the highest intelligence scores, and again, many of the ranks of blacks have higher intelligence than many whites. This is postulated to be due to admixturing with other cultures, often occurring at multiple levels within a particular genetic tree. In short, while intelligence is a factor, it is not cut and dried. 

The dumbest people in the world are Australian Aborigines Median = 60. The smartest are Ashkenazis  from the Caucasas region of Eurasia. Median = 118. The later are now a diaspora and make up about 75% of all jews worldwide. 

gattaca's picture

Ashkenazim have most of the nobel.prizes in physics as well, the numbers are stGgering. It is postulTed thT being deprivdd of land ownership in europe led to concentration in intellectual businesses where infelligence led to reprodu tive success through sexual selection mechNisms. The same skew for intelligence is not found in the jewz who remai ed in the nTi e lands. Re aboriginals, following the human migrTion from africa, and knowing that the australian aboriginL and south african san peole are most like early homosPiens lends credence to the idea thag thsy are not heavily selected or intsllectuL evolution throuvh environmental pressuree. Howe er, you are incorect about geneti. Diversity, all people of africa hVe the highest genetic.

Without looking at the statistics or doing a probability analysis I am pretty certain that you are incorrect.

Averege IQ for a white American is 100.

It is 85 for a black person.

The IQ dispersion is in a shape of a bell curve with a vast majority of people very close to the mean and then outliers on the low and high end.

Unless the blacks have a greatly flattened out and malformed bell curve your claim is impossible.


Barney Fife's picture

Actually I think you are right, I think the number is lower than I stated. The first leftward 0.5 sigma shift includes 19.1% of the population group, the second leftward 0.5 sigma shift is about an additional 15%. That is the percentage of the right side of the symmetrical curve that is left shifted out from under the area of the white population IQ PDF.. So that means that you have to subtract 1 std dev off from 50% median/mean (curve is symmetrical, mean = median) . I think you are right. I think I was being overly generous. In my sloppy haste, I added the total fractional area under the 1 std dev instead of subtracting that total area off from .50, which is the area of each side of the curve pivoting around the mean. As a sanity check if you double that number then you get +/- 1 std dev from the mean, which is 68%, which is a welll known quantity.  That leaves 32% in the tails. Given symmetry, one tail will lie on or to the right of hte mean of the white IQ curve, so 1/2 of the aggregate in the tails is 16%. Thanks for picking that up.You have an eagle eye. So here is how outcome-based education works. If I correct the error and the answer promotes a more equal distribution then I get upvotes, otherwise I get downvotes. In any event, damn dude, the corrected number is depressing as hell. 

BarkingCat's picture

I did not run any analysis. It just did not seem correct from how the graphs would overlay each other.

The more depressing part is the low intelligence level in many enthnic groups and the fact that these are the people who reproduce the most.


NoPension's picture

There is a documentary that details this situation.

Watch " Idiocracy ". The Documentary, by Mike Judge.

It was postulated as a comedy, but we know better. Perhaps, that was the storyline Mr. Judge gave to the investors to get the project off the ground. Otherwise, they wouldn't have been involved in such a production.

PhD's picture

You may still be wrong as you assume a symmetrical distribution. As far as i know (from a studdy i read somewhere), it more resembels a power lognormal distribution. And i doubt its all nature, black kids adopted by white families performs better on tests


BarkingCat's picture

They perform better but still significantly lower.

It is the same thing for adapted white children.

To put it simply dumb parents produce dumb children. They can perform better with a better upbringing but you can only push them so far. 

Keep in mind that working class and uneducated does not equal dumb. There are many without significant formal education that are much more intelligent than those with college degrees.

Sometimes it is just a lack of opportunity.

Trogdor's picture

Word. This guy writes better than a lot of people I know ....

OverTheHedge's picture

Which was my point higher up. Are they his words, or is this a professionally written piece of propaganda?

not dead yet's picture

So you think a black guy cop isn't smart enough to write well? Got any proof that he didn't write it or just letting your prejudices show. If instead of being an idiot do some research and you would know this guy is on the money. We've had plenty of this stuff around here, and the country, for decades. In the close big city the blacks would whine and cry about the cops not being there and when they patrolled they were met with insults and other crap. At one crime scene of black on black crime, shown on the news, a group of white officers were surrounding the black officer consoling him as the crowd called him an Uncle Tom and other insults. Black kids that do well in school are harrassed by other black kids accusing them of "trying to be white" and sometimes get physical. Talk to many successful blacks that rose from the ghettos and they claim that can't go home as they try to suck you back into the life, or worse. Years ago during the LA riots Martin Luther King flew in to help out and end the carnage. He was promptly run out of town as the local black leadership didn't want their slaves freed and that continues today all over the country. A few years ago in a major US city whose race relations were called 40 years behind the times, my son was a supervisor at a major retailers manufacturing operations. He fired plenty of black workers who were lazy and felt entitled, like many in the community thanks to local black leadership always playing the race card and handing out free benefits like candy to keep the locals behind their racist policies, and did a shitty job. The first thing out of their mouths was calling him a racist. Thing is to fire someone he needed the OK of his boss and the head of HR who were BLACK.

Dealt with in the harshest manner possible kinda "dealt with"?

Wow, one can dream right? Who wouldn't want to kick the chair out from underneath some smug, arrogant, manipulative reporter who has spent years manipulating public perception with impunity and then viciously attacking those that question his narrative?

Hell, I bet you could auction that chair kicking event off for top dollar. 

Disclaimer: Blowing off steam and frustration here. A long prison sentence for treason would be the reasonable penalty. 

funthea's picture

This guy had be at hello, as I agree with most all of his conclusions. Not sure how and why it took him so long to reach his conclusions, but hey, maybe he's just a little slow. But this line is bullshit:

“Stay Alive” as part of your daily to do list, and having insurance for your health insurance because of the high rate of death in your profession.

Fact is, law enforcement isn't really on the radar as far as deaths by profession. Truck driver and electrician are considerably higher.

Not an electrician myself but I do frequently need to work on high-voltage systems for my job. Most cops would take one look at the shit i have to dig into and wire up while it's powered on and cycling and run the fuck away, lol.

Because the news, politicians, everyone he loved and cared about, and everyone in his community FULLY believed the lies that he outlined and tried to indoctrinate them into him.  The problem, is that he thinks.  That really has to suck to be a black man with a brain.

It's called accountability.  Accountability is under siege.  You can't have accountability and a victim culture.  The two don't go together. 

RaceToTheBottom's picture

Exactly, and empowering victim-hood is the strongest anchor to a people rising up.  

Look at the Vietnamese, Koreans, Indians, Irish, Russians, Poles, even Hispanics when they come to the US.   The last thing that they do is empower each other to wallow in their victim-hood.

I had hoped that Obama would show them, "hey a black can be president.  Sit up.  Have pride. Start controlling your own life."  I was stupid wrong.

Ok, nailed that...BUT FINISH IT!

Those cops that "should have never been given a badge & gun" WERE given a badge and a gun, ARE still on the force, AND when they act like the shitheads they are, abusing/murdering, YOU AND YOUR POLICE UNION "RALLY AROUND THEM" to PROTECT THEM FROM PUNISHMENT.

Name the bad cops you work with...CALL them out...demand they be fired...until I hear that, you're as bad as they are...

A modern version of "Frag em" might set in if it ISN'T handled correctly right now.  This is going down the rabbit hole quickly, and that rabbit hole has a wolverine in it.

The "solution" starts with Obama...his Justice Department needs to reformat the rules of policing and they need to AGRESSIVELY PROSECUTE every last shithead cop...and they need to send the message to ALL COPS that it's OK to turn in your fellow cops that are shitheads; we will protect you from retribution...the mentality of "we're all cops and we have to cover each others backs; no matter how badly we behave" must be squashed!

Obama has ~6 months left...lol...don't hold your breath "Black Community"...but I'm sure Hillary will come through for you...so get out there and vote!

Deathrips's picture

I was thinking he didnt finish .....it another way.

There are soo many laws that a citizen could break that "Three Felonies a Day" (search it) is the average every person commits every day.  Police departments are set up to fill private prisons and in some cases fines contribute to pensions.

Corrections Corporations of America is a private prison group that REQUIRES cities keep facilities at certain capacities in order to avoid large fines. Look into that officer.

Heres a couple things he could add that would make more impact.

1. Too many laws.

2. Which victim is the money going to?

3. Policing for profit is bad

4. Court systems are bastardized (to boot juries are filled with retards)


I kinda feel bad that a majority of people in the world can only argue positions given to them by MSM and facts/data dont have emotions. This man is one of the choosers of decisions given.


Someone should give these people better choices and better data. This is why our independent Bernays "journalists" are directly to blame for failing to explore the solution. By default propagandists create division for their owners to redirect public angst neighbors instead of the ones responsible.


The police are a an axe of the policy makers and when the policy makers dont work for the people this kind of thing happens.



NoPension's picture

A cop might genuinely worry about risking his/her life in the hood. But they still go in, and do their job. Sometimes, risking their lives.

That would be your ass, your job, your pension, and maybe your life.
Serpico anybody?
We know what a cop really fears. And it ain't the average hood rat.

xtop23's picture

Pretty much nails it. 

Although, an educated individual will have nothing to do with ratings driven news media or youtube, as their information sources.

Barney Fife's picture

Raw, uncut videos can be extremely valuable, provided that one is smart enough to know the limitations, such as what is not on camera. 

Would you rather have FOX or CNN interpret them for you? 

xtop23's picture

I agree. But, as you say, raw / uncut video has limitations. As a means of "getting it out there" it has its uses, but without context, it can occasionally result in incorrect conclusions.

There is no comparison with regard to mockingbird media. I will always take the raw footage. I prefer to make my own conclusions and not to have a chosen narrative rammed down my throat.

That being said, too many people "act" based on the conclusions that they draw from such raw footage. Quite often, information that comes to light over time as a situation develops, makes ones initial conclusions inaccurate.
