    The mother of a 9-year-old girl who was killed Tuesday, went on a tirade against Black Lives Matter, accusing them of fighting the wrong fight.

    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.”

    From my heart!

    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.”

    “Oh yeah, I put him there. I turned him in. Yes I did because I’m a strong black woman. I am a black mother,” she explains. “I told my children that if you (mess) up, if you go to jail, I am not getting you out. You will stay there. You will do the time. I am not coming to visit you. I ain’t sending you magazines. I’m not doing anything for you because I did everything I could for you out here and yet you chose to go in there… If you don’t care about me and your father working and putting in time and effort to raise you and be there for you. And we took note of everything you were interested in. And you ended up in there. Then you belong in there.”

    In her most rapacious invective, she blames Black Lives Matter for committing the most brutality. 

    “Y’all want to holler ‘police brutality’? You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals,” she accuses. “You’re putting plaques in the ground over somebody who would not stop. He had a chance to stop. How many times is someone going to tell you to stop doing that (stuff) before they do something to you?”

    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.
