Cease me should you’ve heard this one: a cop/legal drama drops every thing it’s doing to cater to BLM propaganda and lies. Unsurprisingly, the ABC authorized drama For Life is back to blatantly butcher the Jacob Blake case, all for the sake of Black Lives Matter.
The aptly-titled February 3 episode “Say His Identify” kicks off with characters reacting to George Floyd’s loss of life. Though this episode is meant to happen at first of the George Floyd protests, they need to have been smarter than to heap extra controversy onto an ongoing case with more than a few issues that forestall it from being what folks known as a “lynching.” As a substitute, we get a personality remarking, “His knee was the noose, honey. Simply received a brand new technique to kill us now.” Sadly, it solely goes downhill from there.
The story largely follows the police capturing of Andy Josiah (Royce Johnson). In line with his account, he was stopped for “driving whereas Black” and pulled out of his automotive for the police to research. His younger son was sitting within the automotive and making an attempt to get out, so he reached over the motive force’s seat and was shot within the again in entrance of his child. Now he lies handcuffed to a mattress confronted with the truth that he could by no means stroll once more.
If that story and the episode title weren’t clear sufficient, this account is mainly the liberal rewrite of Jacob Blake’s capturing. Nonetheless, as a substitute of being an ex-felon allegedly violating a restraining order, making an attempt to steal a automotive and children that weren’t his, and holding a knife towards cops, Andy Josiah is a loving father with a loyal spouse and two children. It’s nearly insulting how far the present goes to color this determine because the sufferer. They even have the nerve for Andy to reference “genocide” and mournfully ask, presumably about white folks, “What the hell’s their drawback?” to which lawyer Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock) replies, “We exist.”
Andy: Solely man I ever met stronger than you was my father. Glad he is not right here to see me like this.
Aaron: What occurred wasn’t about you. You do not gotta really feel no disgrace or guilt. Alright?
Andy: Yeah, however sure issues I seemed ahead to, you realize? Selecting up my son, swinging him round, even taking the trash out. Appears silly, huh? I get it. However it made me really feel like a person for my spouse. I ain’t by no means gonna get to make like to her once more. Man, you see how high-quality she is?
Aaron: You continue to received rather a lot to stay for, Andy.
Andy: You understand the query I ask on daily basis?
Aaron: What’s that?
Andy: What the hell’s their drawback? I imply, they received every thing. But they nonetheless on some genocide mess.
Aaron: We exist.
I’ll let you know what the issue is for everybody. If harmless black folks have been actually being systemically shot and murdered by racist white cops, the BLM mobs would be capable to discover much better examples than Jacob Blake. Because the police aren’t genocidally killing black men, essentially the most they’ll do is help felons preventing the police whereas mendacity in regards to the particulars like this episode does. And if anyone questions that, they cry out “racist!” and lie extra. That’s greater than sufficient to be an issue.
Sadly, in contrast to Jacob Blake, Andy succumbs to his accidents and is ultimately taken off life-support by his household. Nonetheless, Aaron vows to get Andy justice, remarking he “fought like hell, [t]hat’s what we have to do.” Apparently, the phrases “combat like hell” are not a call to violence since Aaron will get appointed as a particular prosecutor to deal with this case. That’s proper, this plot will proceed for a number of episodes.
