The Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office will pay tribute to county law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty, including 11 from its own ranks.

Brazoria County lost just one officer last year when Pct. 1 Deputy Constable Brad Briscoe succumbed to COVID-19. His death was one of a nation-leading 48 officer fatalities recorded in 2020, the majority of them from the disease, according to an annual report from the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund.

Dems, dem media, leftist dem supported organizations like ANTIFA and BLM are guilty perpetrating the vile, hate, violence to our Police Officers

As there are bad cops as bad citizens, business CEO’s , journalist, politicians, Pastors etc. it’s a reflection of mans nature . But these groups judge all in the policing profession while they don’t want to be judged as whole

This designed hate and attacks to eliminate law enforcement for further wreaking of the Constitution must stop and more good folks speak out

Unfortunately very few in the media will buck the dem cult narrative

Funny how you gloss over the insurrection. Is that because it was trump supporters therefore making it a patriot thing?

Father of Six

What is your definition of insurrection? I think you and the leftist media have a distorted definition of insurrection. We shouldn't let you and the leftist media define actions and words for us. That's how we got "pick your gender". You can call it what you want but it wasn't an insurrection to me and that makes you angry. I'll make you a deal though, when The Facts, CNN, MSNBC or any of the three letter networks call the Antifa/BLM attack on police stations and the federal courthouse in Portland as an insurrection, I'll use that word to describe the incursion into the Capitol as an insurrection.

My definition of insurrection is what we witnessed on January 6th. A minority of individuals, majority white, who were not happy that their leader lost and lost big so they go to the Capitol on certification day to try and overthrow the free and fair election. Apparently that is hard for you to understand. BLM was not trying to overthrow an election and take over the Capitol. BLM is looking for fair treatment of people of color by the police. Of course you lump BLM and Antifa together (2 totally different agendas) and the "patriots" get a pass. Whether you call them insurrectionists or patriots, you are fine with what you witnessed at the Capitol on January 6th? Those patriots beat the heck out of many police officers yet not a peep from you and PBJM. And before you go there, I have condemned the violence in Portland and other cities many times.

How about the insurrection at the White House by BLM? Did you see the secret service and DC police being pelted and injured? I did. Tearing down fences, trying to gain access to the White House and setting churches on fire is a means to bring about change? Let's stop the word play.

natives5

Yet again no peep about January 6th. Are you speaking of when trump cleared the peaceful demonstrators from the plaza so he could go across the street and hold the bible upside down? No matter how hard you try to spin it, BLM does not equate to January 6th. Haha nice try though.

Father of Six

This is where Mr. Morris would step in if I or Bulldog referred to the BLM rioters outside of the White House as peaceful when over 50 secret service agents were injured and the St. John Episcopal Church building was set on fire. We don't talk about January 6th very much because you and the liberal press ignore the BLM/antifa nightly riots, looting, murder and chaos. No need in discussing one event when we have a new riot by the left every night.

Distorting facts to fit your perverse narrative is not a good look, Father of Six.

Father of Six

Liar. Where are you Mr. Morris?

Sorry Father of Six. I was scolded for interjecting myself into comments and took the guidance to heart.

Father of Six

No Mr. Morris you just prove your bias. Sadly, I only subscribe to The Facts for the obituaries and the entertainment I get from sparring with Natives. The people of Brazoria County are underserved by your newspaper, at least the digital version full of typos and misspelled words. Mrs. Muecke would give you an "F" for editing. The last bit of advice I would give you is don't insult your customers. Please make sure my subscription is canceled. (I'll call tomorrow to confirm) David Krejci (FatherofSix)

Who’s ignoring facts? BLM is a Marxist, racist organization. Have you read their goals and listened to their leaders. Have you not seen their destruction and violence. Or do you turn your head because they are a black founded organization?

natives5

I’ve condemned the violence from all sides yet I haven’t seen any of y’all condemn the violence on Jan 6th. Is that because they were white men and women?

PJBM626

I condemn the trespassing into the capital. There wasn’t much violence as we’ve seen ANTIFA and BLM commit

You stated BLM is just wanting fair treatment

Again have you seen them destroy Black businesses and property. Have you heard many blacks speak out against BLM?

Have you read their goals on families and ideologies? If you accept this , tells me a lot about you

natives5

Violence is violence and the fact that you just dismissed the violence on Jan. 6th as not as much as others tells us all a lot about you. Have you ever read the BLM website? Here it is; educate yourself: https://blacklivesmatter.com/about/

PJBM626

They did take down all reference to Marxism before the election. I saw a lot of white judgement

Here’s some real facts on BLM

You are aware many Black Americans speak out against BLM. It’s not blankety supported by all blacks. It wants to target and put in jail all white and black conservatives. Nice heart warming people

It’s wants to ban Donald Trump period

This is a hate group and they are violent

The lease compare so called violence at the capital and the violence at the capital throwing rocks and threats by ANTIFA and BLM

Have you conveniently forgot this?

Excuse me. The mob and violence was at the White House

PJBM626

Native, where is the outrage from BLM from a white guy calling a black man Oreo

Also the dem party not firing him

I get it. BLM wants to punish any Black person who has a mind of their own. Wow this is thought control. Sounds like Marxism

natives5

Ironic you want to cancel someone for what they’ve said. And criticizing a group for “punishing” one of their own who doesn’t agree with them...I can’t even lol Have a good night, PJBM.

PJBM626

Did you really just say that?? Did you read BLM link yiu gave me? They want to cancel Trump, white and Black conservatives!!! Isnt cancel what you vote and worship??

I’ve heard your concern for your sons and a Fathers love must be respected

My sons and daughter are all Christian conservatives. So the BLM you openly support wants to attack and cancel my children . I would be stand for this

natives5

I question whether you read the link. You are making this a Democrat vs. Republican, conservative vs. liberal issue and it is not. No where on that site do they state they want to "cancel" conservative Christians. Heck, you're welcome to join the movement. I am a Christian myself. The 7 demands referred to a conviction and ban on trump from holding future political office and expelling Republican members of Congress who attempted to overturn the election and incited a white supremacist attack as well as other items; none of which have anything to do with conservative Christians (unless you are implying that those are values of conservative Christians, which I do not believe is your intent). Do a simple search on the site and you will find nothing for "conservative" or "cancel" and 3 hits on the word "Christian." No one is trying to cancel your family or their values. If they were, I'd stand up for them as well. I think we can both agree that our families are important to us and we want to keep them safe....common ground. Have a good afternoon, PJBM!

Correction: I won’t stand for this. It’s hate and judgement

Report from the NY Post on BLM

Some people try to separate BLM “the organization” from “the movement” that goes by the same name, but at most they are two sides of the same coin. From the start, both the organization and the movement — BLM writ large — have been about hatred and violence that extends beyond police and includes all white people, all blacks who are conservative and the United States of America.

I read the site and so much hate towards whites. Define white supremacy. Because according to BLM suburban whites are suprematist . This site judges almost all whites as suprematist but I sat BLM are black suprematist

Please don’t ask me to join this racist organization. I do not see any Christian values in this organization. I see hate, judgement, violence. This isn’t Jesus teachings

They even reference Black Panthers whose leader said to kill whites babies.

You say you are a Christian??? I won’t judge you on this but I say check their language and compare to Jesus teachings

natives5

Your hate and judgement towards me oozes in your posts. I didn’t ask you to join; I said you could join. I tried to find common ground in our love for our families and you attacked. Perhaps you should check your language and compare THAT to Jesus’ teachings. Always questioning my Christianity when you need to do some self reflection. Peace out.

PJBM626

No hate in me for you. But I will speak the truth about BLM. If you consider my firm opinion of this KKK type organization an attack because I don’t buy into the lies about them, that’s your right to your opinion. I know the Lords teachings and brother isn’t doesn’t dwell in this organization. But respect your opinion but strongly disagree. Gods Bless and I don’t hate you , disagreeing doesn’t mean hate
