Black Lives Matter activist changes tune on police following robbery | Fox News

A University of Houston grad student active in the local Black Lives Matter movement is suddenly all for police patrols in his neighborhood — after he was robbed at gunpoint outside his apartment.
Jerry Ford Jr., described as one the leaders of the BLM movement on campus, tells KTRK that he spotted the young man loitering outside his apartment one evening last week but thought little of it. But when he went to unlock the door, the man pulled a gun and stole Ford’s wallet and cell phone.

Ford lives at an apartment complex just a few blocks from the UH campus in an area that has seen a spate of robberies and thefts in recent weeks, including the burglary of dozens of vehicles. Because the housing is off-campus, it is not patrolled by University of Houston police officers. Ford says that needs to change.

You know the cliché - A new conservative is a liberal that just got robbed.

It reminds me of the story of college student who went to camp out in an Occupy Wall Street “community.” She complained when her iPad was stolen. It wasn’t “stolen.” It was “the people’s iPad,” and another member of the community needed to use it. I’m sure that he or she returned it to the commune when he or she was done with it. :slayer:
