More Cops Hunted Down in Baton Rouge

Suspects are still at large. Tragic. The war on cops is getting worse.

BATON ROUGE – Two East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office deputies and two Baton Rouge Police Department officers were killed and three others wounded during a Sunday morning shooting on Airline Highway near the Hammond Aire Plaza.

Authorities have confirmed that the first of three suspects is a Missouri man who was killed after the shooting. Two other suspects were taken into custody in West Baton Rouge Parish and are being questioned by Baton Rouge Police.

President Obama’s statement was spot on. Maybe he’s finally starting to understand that pandering to racist anarchist organizations has consequences. Here’s his statement:

I condemn, in the strongest sense of the word, the attack on law enforcement in Baton Rouge. For the second time in two weeks, police officers who put their lives on the line for ours every day were doing their job when they were killed in a cowardly and reprehensible assault. These are attacks on public servants, on the rule of law, and on civilized society, and they have to stop.

I’ve offered my full support, and the full support of the federal government, to Governor Edwards, Mayor Holden, the Sheriff’s Office, and the Baton Rouge Police Department. And make no mistake – justice will be done.

We may not yet know the motives for this attack, but I want to be clear: there is no justification for violence against law enforcement. None. These attacks are the work of cowards who speak for no one. They right no wrongs. They advance no causes. The officers in Baton Rouge; the officers in Dallas – they were our fellow Americans, part of our community, part of our country, with people who loved and needed them, and who need us now – all of us – to be at our best.

Today, on the Lord’s day, all of us stand united in prayer with the people of Baton Rouge, with the police officers who’ve been wounded, and with the grieving families of the fallen. May God bless them all.

    Well said Mr. President!

    I agree.

    Is that an apology for all the cop hating rhetoric he said in past?

    If so, what’s the plan to fix his damage caused by the rhetoric?

  3. Pat


    Don’t expect me to answer you as I’m supposed to leave you alone. And as such, please leave me alone.

    Wasn’t one of these cops black?

    Why hasn’t BLM marched against the most unjustified shooting of the year? Criminal thig shooting an innocent black officer just trying to help people?

    Unfortunately this will happen more and more as a reaction to cops killing unarmed black people for a tailight or some other bogus reason. When the justice system fails to provide a fair and impartial process eventually the aggrieved take matters in their own hands. Then we will have the “law and order” candidate in Cleveland talk about imposing restraints on our freedoms. Once again fear will be used to limit citizen rights and we slip down the ever slipperier slope toward a police state. We need national arrest guidelines enforced on racist police practices much as we needed to send in the army to desegregate schools in the 50’s.

    Interesting PR Pat.

    If BLM cared about black on black crime, BLM advocates should stop electing soft on crime liberals that return criminals back to the black community.

    BLM should embrace the David Clarke approach to law enforcement, but BLM refuses to.

    So the article you linked is complete bunk.

    Why isn’t BLM marching for black cop that was gunned down with a 4 month old child in the BLM inspired cop ambush? That was the most unjustified shooting of the year!

    It’s those poor dead cops and their families I feel sorry for.

    Blue Lives matter!

    Again, please don’t address me as I wasn’t addressing you.
