Does anyone think it's just outright stupid that whenever the issue of police brutality comes up, people always bring up black on black crime?

Honestly whenever something like what happened to George Floyd happens, people always try to discredit BLM by talking about how prevalent black-on-black crime is to contrive a double standard where the activists "only care about the life of a black man if he's killed by a white man/police officer". Now many have countered this argument by claiming that police brutality and black-on-black crime are separate issues and that caring about one doesn't preclude you from caring about the other. But in my opinion, there's an elephant in the room that people are ignoring. When police brutality runs rampant, it creates an atmosphere of distrust towards the authorities among the people and an unwillingness to cooperate with law enforcement which is how you get things like the "no snitching" rule. In such a situation, criminal elements can run rampant through a community. You can't just see these things in isolation.
