When contacted by our reporters last week, Lahren said it is Alexander's felony conviction that most angers her: "There are excellent folks out there who can represent what the Black Lives Matter movement is supposed to stand for, and with good intentions," she told the newspaper.
But that's a ludicrous backtracking from the content of her video, in which she says plainly that "the Black Lives Matter movement itself is bull****." Last August, she called the movement "the new KKK."
As for Alexander's record, he was convicted in 2011 of felony harm to a child involving a 2 year old. It's serious crime, but it doesn't disqualify him from offering a valuable perspective on the next police chief, especially since his work since has tapped into a community dialogue that desperately needs to continue.
