Bishop E.W. Jackson: Law Enforcement Being Dumbed Down

Monday, 04 May 2015 07:06 PM

Federal and state officials too often interfere with local policing and it's hurting law enforcement, says Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of Staying True to America's National Destiny (STAND).

"Frankly, [it's leading to] the dumbing down of policing, where laws don't matter, right and wrong doesn't matter," Jackson said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The only thing that [will] matter is that we satisfy the sort of ideological urge that we have to make some people victims, some people oppressors.

"And to make sure that the victims are always lionized and they're always right and no matter what their criminal record might be, no matter what they've done, they're heroes."

Bishop's comments come hours after fast-flying false rumors spread that a cop in riot-torn Baltimore had shot a young African-American man in the back. It turned out that police had arrested a man with a handgun, but absolutely no shots were fired.

"Reality doesn’t matter, facts don't matter, people are caught up in their own vortex of unreality, of fantasy … It's just a lot of verbiage that means absolutely nothing," said Bishop, head pastor of the Virginia-based Exodus Faith Ministries.

He called for leadership that "starts to bring people together and says, hey, look, we want justice for everybody, but let's not jump to conclusions and rush to judgment regardless of what the racial makeup of the incident might be."

"Unfortunately, you got the president and you got [the Rev.] Al Sharpton and you got this prosecutor and the mayor [in Baltimore] and they just feed into this racial narrative," Bishop said.
