Note the direction of those relationships: Jesus never said anything about killing others.
But BLM has directly been responsible for a lot of the anti-cop rhetoric that has been prevalent in this country over the last decade. If you keep telling people that "cops are evil, all cops are bad, etc etc etc" then you shouldn't be surprised when some of those people act violently. That goes for any extremist group.
This is such poor logic.
It equates to saying we should not point out problem X because some people will hear of problem X and try to address it by killing those who symbolize problem X.
I think pretty much everyone agrees murder is both illegal and ethically wrong, I don't see why we can't move forward on that basis.
It also suggests Jesus should not have preached because the resulting movement springing from his Disciples generations later would use violence to try to address their perceived problems.
This kind of poor logic is what arises from making false equivalences.
And here we are yet again not talking about the 13 people arrested by the FBI and facing charges, because of such distractions.
