The attacks are going to cause shock waves through the law enforcement community. The police were not shot in street warfare, they were essentially attacked by a coward who found comfort behind an anger and misguided feeling that he was accomplishing something of consequence.
We won’t write this wretched loser’s name as it is our policy. But it is instructive to point out what he did and the ramifications of it.
1. He did not help the Black Lives Matter Movement one bit. The racists in this country will point to his attacks as those of someone wanting to just even the score.
2. His attacks on family men were just as bad as the police misadventures against black people killed through the years. Lives were changed, lost forever.
3. This may help start a conversation about race in this county. At least that’s what people are saying. But I have no faith in the attention span of the America people regarding guns, violence or race.
However if there is movement, this guy deserves no credit. Only condemnation for his crimes.
In the end the Police will be buried, the killer who was blown to bits will be just a footnote in our violent history and about a month from now, we will be hard pressed to remember the details of this tragic summer weekend.
I hope I’m proven wrong but hardly expect to be.
Campaign officials said they’ll reschedule. But I’m sure there are callers to local talk radio who will blame Biden, Clinton and Obama.
Sue Henry got a call today from a woman who blamed President Obama because under his administration there has been more gun violence and demonstrations than ever before. As always with these loud mouth know it alls, they just had an opinion but no common sense or facts to back them up.
Here’s what the President said and you tell me if he is to blame: (as if he needs defense from a Bertha from Berwick or whatever these people call themselves)
