Two Cops Shot in Ferguson

Here’s the inevitable result of people stirring up hatred toward the police.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Two officers were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department early Thursday, authorities said, as demonstrators gathered after the resignation of the city’s police chief in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report alleging bias in the police department and court.

A 32-year-old officer from nearby Webster Groves was shot in the face and a 41-year-old officer from St. Louis County was shot in the shoulder, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference. Both were taken to a hospital, where Belmar said they were conscious. He said he did not have further details about their conditions but described their injuries as “serious.”

Let’s hope that the officers heal quickly and the shooters are caught even more quickly.

    Let us know if you’ve opted out of police coverage in your neighborhood, Bystander. Hate to see forces of hate in your cul-de-sac.

    “Police officer lives matter”.

    …no matter what their race.

    Ferguson is a tinder box with a police Force that deserves our contempt
    But not to be shot at .

    Abusive cops may not deserve our hate but they certainly also don’t deserve our unquestioned support either .

    Police need to live up to the standards we set for them.

    Most do .

    The police in Ferguson verifiably do not .

    There is an abusive pubic safety officer in Ferguson? I see many good people enduring needless police officer hating from the left.

    What we need is more support of officers bringing in those who constantly look to do criminal evil.
    …and less of those who excuse bad behavior because the criminal belongs to a special class of protected minority.

    Read the justice Dept report

    The Ferguson Police Dept is a sewer of intolerance .

    To take a phrase from a Saint of the Right

    We wanted to Trust the Ferguson police

    the Justicr Dept report
    Verified that we can’t .

    Criminals are the most intolerant of the just law abiding citizen in Ferguson. That still is a much bigger problem. Especially black on black crime. in every city in nation that is much bigger deal….yet the left disrespects all police everywhere, those trying to end that huge problem.

    The more the left attacks the fine men and women of law enforcement, the more the left empowers criminals and show black lives mean less, since minorities are more likely victims of crime….by criminals.

    That may or may not be true in other area’s of the Country

    Defending the Ferguson police department is finding virtue where this none

    Clean up your attitude.
