I met Ron and attended his 3rd well attended presentation: Blacks Lives Matter and The War On Police at the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association conference ( ILEETA ) in March 2016.
Ron opened my eyes to the reality and background of this anarchist group whose goal is to disrupt our free way of life in the U.S.
It really is: Black LIES Matter.
Ron provided the real evidence about Ferguson, Trayvon Martin, Chicago today and the ” hired ” agitators sent to protest across America by unconscionable shakedown artists protected by money and political connections. Even the shakedown artists are screwing their hired thug agitators ( #cutthecheck ).
Ron provides the real facts from accurate, reliable sources about the sad reality that more blacks are killed by other blacks than by law enforcement. BLM is very silent about this reality.
Ron concluded with a recommendation for educating people properly about civil rights in the U.S. Starting in the schools educating people about the law, law enforcement’s role , search & seizure, what a person can and cannot do. This is especially important for educating our immigrants seeking to stay in the U.S. legally.
I am looking forward to reading his new book: The Truth Behind The Black Lives Matter Movement And The War On Police.

Thank you for your great work and insight into Black Lives Matter. I’ve not only enjoyed your book, I’ve also gained self-introspection into how and why I believe the way I do insofar as this group.
For example, I’ve always had this idea there are criminal commonalities: Lack of respect for authority; unwillingness to assume responsibility; inability to have trusting relationships; lack of communications skills–especially to express emotions; and a lack of vision for a hopeful, prosperous and fulfilled future. I’ve always believed for the “future career criminal,” the ordinary tasks of growing up and maturing are a series of perverse exercises, frustrating the person’s needs, stunting the capacity for empathy, and diminishing the ability to live in either the community of home with parents, or the community of man.
Yet I gathered from your book there is a “criminal” vs. “emotional unhealthy” difference, when some persons are simply bad not mad, crafty not crazy; when criminal behavior is more a disorder of character and personality–not of the mind. It’s like just because someone is not emotionally well does not that person is mentally ill.
Entitled, narcissistic, and selfish—are the traits of the unassimilated, the conflicted. Your Black Lives Matter book reminds me of these traits not only in this BLM group, but in myself. Thank you.

Hi Rick. Sorry for the delay, but I just discovered how to access and respond to comments of followers. Happy New Year! DrRon
I read your comments on the situation in California !. The next step in this terrible situation is for the Federal Government is to bail out bankrupt California.
I have forwarded your comments to my Democratic Congressman pointing out that when he voted for Nancy Pelosia as Speaker of the House this is what he voted for–someone whose interest and concern for those she represents is totally ZERO. She is self centered narrcistic individuaL
How do I obtain your book Black Lives Matter.
Thank for your keen insight,
You Can find my book on this site and order it, or on amazon.com. Thanks for your comments. DrRon
Anyone prudent and reasonable person interested in criminal justice issues and proper police procedures including investigative work needs to read Ronald Martinelli!s books. I was fortunate to take several of his classes over 30 years ago. And, having 2 degrees and 3 law enforcement academies with specialized experience in certain investigations with several agencies, no one is better educated, trained or qualified that Dr. Ron!
