The problem with Blue Lives Matter is quite obvious. A movement borne out of wildly disproportionate police violence christens itself “Black Lives Matter.” People get in such a friggin tizzy they have to completely co-opt it into “All Lives Matter” and then into “Blue Lives Matter,” at the end of th...
