Peggy Hubbard lost her daughter Tuesday night when she was killed while doing homework from her mother’s bed. Hubbard took to Facebook to blast Black Lives Matter saying they should be focusing on black on black crimes.
"You want to be upset about black lives? You want to be upset about police brutality? There is police brutality out there,” Hubbard says in the video. “I will give you that. But night, after night, after night on Channel 4, Channel 2, Channel 5, Channel 30, Channel 11 and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: murder, murder, murder, murder. Black on black murder.”
She goes on to accuse Black Lives Matter activists for speaking out for the wrong people.
“You tear up other people’s (stuff) for a criminal, a thug,” she says of some of the people who have been killed by police. “Bailing out criminals and thugs.”
Hubbard starts to visibly weep when she starts talking about her daughter.
“A little girl is dead,” she says. “You say black lives matter? Her life mattered. Her dreams mattered. Her future mattered. Her promises mattered. It mattered.”
At one point, Hubbard reveals she has her own “kid locked up.”
In her most rapacious invective, she blames Black Lives Matter for committing the most brutality.
While Hubbard did not exonerate the police, she put the blame on those who commit violence.
“Do you think the police are out here for fun? Do you think they’re out here for games?” she rhetorically asks. “They’re not going to tuck you in. They’re not going to give you a cookie and sing you a lullaby. No, they’re going to pop a cap in your ass. You shoot at them and they’re going to shoot at you. If you try to kill them, their job is serve and protect, not serve and die.”
Hubbard’s Facebook video has gone viral receiving more than 4 million views since she posted it on Thursday.
