The Black Lives Matter chapter in Washington D.C. expressed indignation that police officers who are shot in the line of duty are automatically treated as “heroes” after an officer was shot and wounded Sunday night in Washington D.C.

Fox News reported that as the scene was being investigated and a shooting suspect had not been captured, Black Lives Matter D.C. weighed in and warned others against the spread of “copaganda.” A term used when positive news is discussed about law enforcement.

“This is the point we’ve been making for months,” the group tweeted Sunday night. “Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tear jerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

“This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong,” the group wrote.
