Police Chief Says This About Black Lives Matter On Facebook- Days Later, He’s Out Of A Job

The recent murder of an innocent Texas Deputy caused  North Carolina police chief Mike Halstead to tell the world about what police face every day. In doing so, he has now been pushed into retirement by town leaders of  Surf City, N.C.

Town Manager Larry Bergman said that town leaders and Halstead met Tuesday concerning a post Halstead had made Sept. 3 on his personal Facebook page. An emergency meeting was held, called by the town’s officials, leading to Halstead’s immediate retirement with 60 days severance pay.

Bergman said that the Aug. 28 slaying of Deputy Darren H. Goforth, who was killed while pumping gas, triggered the post by Halstead, which began with the words, “Open letter from a Police Chief.”

“This Black Lives Matter group is nothing more than an American born terrorist group brought on by the lie of the hands up don’t shoot during the criminal thug Michael Brown incident,” Halstead wrote. “The FBI and other Government Law Enforcement groups need to step up and put a stop to this. The Government and blacks would not tolerate the White Supremacist group to march through the streets and call for the murders of a race of people and a group of public servants.”

“I agree there is a race problem in this country. It is not brought on by police officer doing their sworn duty,” he wrote, citing activists Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, President Obama and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as among the culprits.

I have been a Police Officer for 35 years. I do not judge anyone by the color of their skin, but by their actions,” he wrote.

Halstead said the media is partly to blame for abysmal race relations.

“When a black thug is killed by the police they are all over it as is Mr. Barack Obama. However when a police officer white, black or any race is murdered for doing his job the media is short with it’s reporting or not at all. When a white person is killed by a black officer you hear nothing,” he wrote.

Halstead then discussed his local department.

“This is not a threat but common knowledge,” he posted. “I have instructed my officers to be vigilant, if threatened take appropriate action. If that means shoot a thug, then do it and answer for it while you are still alive not dead. Law Enforcement is fed up with this murderous society who want to take out those who protect and serve.”

Halstead closed his post on a ringing note.

“As for the New Black Panther movement who wants to kill whites and cops, go for it, we are ready for you. You take one of us and there will be 100 who will step up and end you. This letter is not meant to offend anyone, just the feelings of a man who has spent the last 35 years of his life serving and protecting, for what so a thug can take it or to be treated as a criminal by the very people I swore to protect.”

Bergman said the post, while on a private page, did not conform to town police guidelines on social media use. Halstead has not responded to media requests for comment, but did react after Tuesday’s meeting.

As Halstead left, a resident who showed up to voice support for him called out, “We’re behind you cheif!”

“Well apparently nobody is,” Halstead replied.

Black Teen Allegedly Guns Down Unarmed White Man Begging ‘Don’t Shoot’…Liberal Outrage?

The “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative surrounding the Ferguson, Mo., police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown has been exposed as a false and misleading description of what actually happened.

As Western Journalism reported last week, even the Washington Post has exposed the “Four Pinocchios” falsehood about the chant that’s been repeated by so many angry protestors, liberal politicians, and agenda-driven race-baiting agitators.

Liberal Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, who is himself African-American, wrote a piece in which he expressed deep regret at having once supported the “hands up, don’t shoot” rallying cry embraced by race-activists such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Predictably, Capehart has been attacked by the Left for his truth-telling.

Given the passion with which Sharpton, Jackson, and others condemned what they saw as the racial component in Michael Brown’s death on a residential street in Ferguson, one can reasonably ask where the liberal outrage is over the senseless murder that just happened in Philadelphia.

According to the NBC station in the City of Brotherly Love, it was an apparent black-on-white crime. The suspects are three African-American teens. The victim was a 51-year-old husband and father who was walking his dog along a quiet street. And before he was gunned down in an apparent robbery, police say this man did, in fact, beg for his life, crying, “Please don’t shoot me, please don’t shoot me.”

So far, there have been no reported protests over the senseless death of James Patrick Stuhlman. No marches against black-on-white crime. No outraged Sharpton or Jackson. No Justice Department probe into a possible hate crime. Stuhlman died on the street with his dog at his side.

By clicking on the video above, you can watch the WCAU-TV news report on the murder of the man who, police say, was targeted because he appeared old and his dog looked weak.

Watch: What Just Happened In Congress Takes Ferguson Madness To A Whole New Level

Congress play

It’s been more than a week since the grand jury in St. Louis County, Missouri said that police officer Darren Wilson should face no criminal charges, that his fatal shooting of Michael Brown was justified, that Wilson did not act improperly in the line of duty.

But the protests, the passions and the posturing over the Ferguson shooting and its aftermath have not subsided. In fact, in some respects, feelings about Ferguson and the “hands up, don’t shoot” theme adopted by protestors and those supporting them have greatly intensified.

From the White House to the Congress to the cities and streets of America, the heat over Ferguson and tensions over race in America are being turned up by those who, it appears, are seeking to exploit the “crisis of confidence” in the fairness of law enforcement.

Civil rights activist/agitator Jesse Jackson is now traveling the country firing up angry crowds with provocative rhetoric. As reported on breitbart.com, Jackson went so far as to say this in Portland, Oregon about the grand jury that found no cause to indict officer Wilson:

“The fact is, for three and a half months, this was no jury of substance,” Jackson said during his speech according to OregonLive. “No jury of integrity. No real America. This was a hangman’s noose,” Jackson said to the crowd.

While he didn’t use inflammatory words like “hangman’s noose” to attack the integrity of the American justice system, Attorney General Eric Holder was also on the road Monday speaking to impassioned crowds.

In a speech in Atlanta at historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, when he was interrupted by Ferguson protestors, Holder showed sympathy and support for their feelings and their efforts.

While he reportedly didn’t try to correct any misconceptions or misgivings about the Ferguson grand jury’s findings of fact, the head of the Justice Department told the cheering audience that he will take significant action in the coming days with regard to federal policing guidelines, as CNN notes:

In the speech, Holder also said he plans to announce “rigorous new standards” for federal law enforcement “to help end racial profiling, once and for all.”

And in Washington, D.C., Ferguson fallout continues to be felt and ill feelings toward police fomented.

Not only did President Obama host a series of White House meetings Monday on race relations and community policing, but on the floor of Congress, members of the Congressional Black Caucus focused on Ferguson and the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative that the grand jury thoroughly discounted in its final report.

Watch: Jesse Jackson Is Left SPEECHLESS After Black Ferguson Protester Calls Him Out In Epic Rant


As he attempts to leave a fast food restaurant near the scene of a Ferguson, Mo. police shooting that sparked riots and looting across the St. Louis area, Jesse Jackson was stopped by at least two protesters criticizing his ostensible leadership within the black community.

“Are you here to support us?” one man asked in the filmed interaction. “We haven’t seen you.”

Though Jackson sat quietly during most of the incident, when he attempted to address the concerns, he was immediately cut off.

After asking the cameraman to wait, he responded, “Ain’t no wait a minute, brother — this is real!”

The activists addressed Jackson’s apparent disinterest in being directly involved in the protests, suggesting that he is more interested in his own causes.

“We haven’t seen you marching at all,” the protester chided. “When you gonna stop selling us out, Jesse?”

He concluded that Jackson is “not even a brother” and that, unless he intends to “pay the bond of those brothers that’s been locked up,” he can “keep moving.”

Epic: Ferguson Protesters Just Told Jesse Jackson To Shove It After He Got Greedy

When anything involving race happens anywhere, you can be sure that Reverend Jesse Jackson will make it there.

Naturally, with a black man being shot in Ferguson, Missouri, he shows up. But this time, the Reverend didn’t quite think out his strategy; and when he pulled out his bullhorn, the protesters ran him out of town.

What could he have done that was so bad, that even a predominantly  black community ran him out of town?

How about asking the protesters for donations for his Church.

According to reports and witnesses on Twitter, that’s exactly what he did.



Perhaps Jackson should have thought a little bit more before being so callous during this sensitive time?
