Riots in Lancaster

Here we go again. It is quite clear that the circumstances of each shooting is irrelevant to the protesters. The shooting is the catalyst to vent hate.

Police shot dead a 27-year-old man – who was awaiting trial for stabbing and seriously injuring four people – after he charged at an officer brandishing a huge knife over his head.

Officers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania were called to a home at 4.15pm yesterday by Ricardo Munoz’s sister who said he had become aggressive toward their mother and was trying to break into her house.

Body camera footage release by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office shows the 27-year-old emerging from the inside of the house as soon as an officer arrived 10 minutes later.

Munoz could be seen charging at the officer while brandishing a knife above his head ‘in clear view’ and ‘in a threatening manner’ before the officer fired at him. He died at the scene.

Yesterday’s shooting sparked protests in the city, with people marching from the scene of the shooting to the Lancaster Police Department while chanting ‘this is what democracy looks like’.

WGAL-TV reported that protesters also smashed in windows of police cars.

Munoz was awaiting criminal trial on four counts of aggravated assault before he was shot dead yesterday. He also had previous charges of stalking, harassment and criminal trespassing.  

Expect this to get worse as the roving violent mob travels in to Lancaster like they did in Kenosha.

    Will Nord specifically support and praise police here?    Or will he punt again?

    The problem is: we have radical liberals, like Nord, running around claiming they support law enforcement, but will not specifically speak against the leftist mob when fine officers are being attacked, like in this case.

    Will you get a backbone this time?

    Or will it be another generic, non-specific, statement?

    Pennsylvania cops shoot dead man for charging at officer with a huge blade 

    That’s a headline that can be taken many ways.  Why would you shoot a dead man?  How can a dead man charge at an officer?  Why did the officer have a huge blade?

  3. Mar

    Thug Lives Matter!!

  4. Merlin

    When you’re a paid protester travel is a condition of employment. The boss says go, you go.

  5. Pat

    Sounds like appropriate action was taken.

  6. Le Roi du Nord


    Exactly, they did their job.

  7. Mar

    Who acted appropriately and did their job?
    The rioters or the cops.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Thats all?

    How about a “well done, thanks for protecting us, here is a medal gfor being a hero” for these officers and the officers in Kenosha?

    You have all the excitement of a dried out sponge sitting on 130 degree pavement when it comes to expresing enthusiatic support for law enforcement.

    I think your support is timid, at best.

    You are unwilling to support law enforcement when it counts in front of the lynching leftist mob.


  9. Le Roi du Nord


    Great exhibit of you inability to read.


    You can think and say whatever you want, you are still free to do that, even after the last 3 1/2+ years of your tin pot wannabe king in the WH.  But you also lack the right to tell others what to say or do.  Any true lover of freedom would know that, apparently you don’t.

    Sad, truly sad.

  10. Mar

    Well, looks like Le Roi is up to playing games this morning.
    Pat made a non-statement.
    Le Roi trolls with a non-statement.
    And then blames me for his non-statement.
    And then he show his vile hate.
    This is why you cannot have a decent conversation with him/her.
    So, I guess he means that the rioters and looters did their jobs.
    Thank you for saying that Le Roi.

  11. Pat

    Lying Mar,

    But the bottle down and sober up.

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, we both made perfect statements.  The most perfect statements, with all the best words.  And we even spelled all the perfect words perfectly.  And showed no hate, nor called anyone names.  We were perfect.  Unlike you.

  13. Mar

    Two morons posting again.
    And you wonder why we don’t you seriously.
    And Le Roi, you are a vile hurtful person.
    So, Pat, please be specific, what appropriate action was taken. You kind of forgot to mention that part.
    Did the cops act appropriately?
    Did the rioters and looters act appropriately?
    Seeing that you support BLM, Pat, I have to assume you support the rioters and looters.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    Your enthusiasm was forced and uninspiring.

    I guess you are just not a good leader for law enforcment morale.

    Leave it to people who actually side with law enforcement.


  15. Le Roi du Nord


    You are certainly entitled to you opinion, regardless of how misguided and error filled it may be.

    I don’t need to brag about my support for LE on a blog like you do. I’ll do it where it counts.

  16. Mar

    I don’t know why are throwing a hussy fit Le Roi.
    Your choice to post here is to lie and troll. That is what you do.
    So, to throw hissy fits like a little girl because someone calls you out because you are not believable, really is quite comical.
    Since you support what Pat said, you obviously do not support law enforcement. She is a supporter of BLM who are anti police.
    Since you agree with Pat, it makes you are lying when you say you support law enforcement.
    Lie and troll, lie and troll. Hats all you do Le Roi is lie and troll.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    My bad…I had high expectations that when you said you were “pro law enforcement” you really meant it….

  18. Pat

    Lying Mar,

    I can’t believe you’re that dense! The police took appropriate action! Maybe a little less alcohol consumption is required for you.

  19. Le Roi du Nord

    What lie mar?

  20. Le Roi du Nord


    Now here is a whopper for you:

    ” And they become very very uh… they just explode. They can explode.”


  21. Mar

    Gee, pat, you could have said that the first time.

  22. Pat

    I didn’t think anyone would be stupid enough to take it any other way.

    But then again……….

  23. Mar

    “What lie mar?” Le Roi says.
    You had problem with your spell check, Le Roi. It should have read:
    “Which lie mar?”
    And yes, Le Roi,dry trees can explode,but I don’t expect you to understand that since you have clue about firefighting.

  24. Mar

    Well, Pst, you want to unify with thugs,along with cops,so it was a close call.
    But I am glad you see it that way.

  25. Le Roi du Nord


    Could you provide some evidence of a dry tree “exploding”.  Sure they can catch on fire and burn pretty fast, or they can be struck by lightning and steam generated by the strike will blow them apart, but they don’t just lay there in the forest and “explode” on their own.  As an alleged former firefighter, you should know that.

  26. Mark Hoefert

    Exploding trees occur when stresses in a tree trunk increase leading to an explosion. These explosions can be caused by three different factors: cold, lightning, and fire.
    Exploding trees also occur during forest fires and are a risk to smokejumpers. In Australia, the native eucalyptus trees are also known to explode during bush fires due to the high flammability of vaporised eucalyptus oil produced by the tree naturally.

  27. Le Roi du Nord

    We are talking trees exploding on their own, just like trump was. There are lots of ways to make them explode, but not on their own.

  28. Mar

    Pathological Liar Le Roi just trolling and lying again.
    Lying and troll, that’s how Le Roi rolls.

  29. Le Roi du Nord

    Yup, trump went from an expert on corona virus to an expert on forest management.  You guys are sure gullible.

  30. Mark Hoefert

    Yup, President Trump went from an expert on corona virus to an expert on forest management.

    He already proved himself as an expert on forest management with the “raking” thing a few years ago.   Certainly owned your crowd on that, with lawn rake memes.


  31. Le Roi du Nord

    My “crowd”, you mean folks that have knowledge and experience in forest and wildfire management?  trump didn’t own us, but he did provide more than a few guffaws, and snorts of derision.  Raking the forest, exploding trees,…  do you folks actually believe him?  If so, it is sure a sad commentary on whatever schooling you slept through.

  32. Mar

    It so sad, Le Roi the Hater that you hate President Trump so much that when you get caught in another lie, you just double down.
    All because you are a hater.
    Just think how much more life would enjoyable for you if you didn’t hate so much.
    You wouldn’t have to lie.
    You might learn something.
    You might even be happier.
    But no.
    You just going on hating and looking like a fool.

  33. Le Roi du Nord

    I’ll ask again mar, what lie?

    And did you hear (it’s all over Qanon, your favorite news site) that DHS has outlawed log houses, baseball bats, shovel handles, toothpicks, paper products, 2×4’s,  and pencils?  Why, you might ask; they are all made out of very dry wood and will explode.  And soon EPA will ban trees of all sorts for their part in providing domestic terrorists with explosive materials.  Keep drinking the kool-ade.

  34. Mar

    Le Roi you just dumber and dumber each day.
    Every day, you get more hateful and more hateful.
    When I first reading this blog, you had some decent comments, though I disagreed with most them.
    Now, all you do is lie and hate. You add nothing to the conversation.
    What happened?

  35. Le Roi du Nord

    So mar, cat got your tongue, or were making up all those lying claims?

  36. Mar

    If it was just me calling you out for your many, many lies, you might have a case about me being biased.
    But you have been called out by just about everyone here.
    Even jjf and other liberals here have not defended you.
    That should tell you something.
    And you still have nothing to add.

  37. Le Roi du Nord

    So you have nothing. Typical.

  38. dad29

    OK.  But it’s obvious from your blathering, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, that YOU have vast, wide, and deep knowledge of forest management.

    So tell us how you’d prevent forest fires.  We’ll wait.

  39. Le Roi du Nord

    Well dud, I certainly have more than you, mar, and trump.

    First off, work on lowering emissions that contribute to CC/GW. It will take a while to make up for the last 3+ disastrous years.

  40. Mar

    Really, Le Roi, how long have you been a firefighter? What are your certifications? How many fire calls have you been on? How many wildfires have you been on?
    Let’s compare our experiences.

  41. Le Roi du Nord

    That wasn’t the question, mar. For a guy as highly educated as you , you sure don’t comprehend the written word very well.

  42. Mar

    Yeah, I didnt think so.
    You don’t know crap.
    Just another lie in a long list of lies.

  43. dad29

    Well, LeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, the historical record shows that wildfires have been a perturbance in the West for over 100 years–and further, that the Indians often SET them to clear deadwood and allow grass to grow, which was good for their food-source:  buffalo.

    I’ll ignore your inane “climate” answer.  You certainly have more specific and immediately-useful knowledge you can download from your vast experience as a DNR warden-assisting mechanic or whatever.  Silly platitudes don’t really cut it; after all “global warming” persisted through the Camelot Years of Obozo/Biden, didn’t it?

    C’mon, maaaaaaaaaaaaan.  Man up for a change.

  44. Le Roi du Nord

    So, you guys and your fearless leader have more experience in forest management?  I have read your foolish commentary for far too long to know that to be true.  But you are free to believe whatever you want, exploding trees and all.

  45. Mar

    I have way far more experience than your lying ass.

  46. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, you don’t. But you are free to believe whatever kool-ade infused delusions come your way.  For someone sooooo highly educated as you claim, one would think you would know when to cut your loses and slink away.  Now go try to figure out how to make trees spontaneously explode.

  47. Mar

    Put up or shut up Le Roi.
    You know nothing.
    You just are so uncivilized.
    Worse than a retarded orangutan.

  48. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, you put up. What experience and training do you have in forest management ? Are you going to tell us that you have decades of experience in that field, along with your 4 decades in the medical profession, 20 some years as a teacher, and an undefined amount of time as a fireman?

  49. Mar

    Wow, Le Roi, you are so full of hate and bullshit tonight.
    You get caught in a lie and get all bent out of shape. Must be having your period.
    But to answer your question, I fought wild land fires on North Dakota and Montana for over 5 years.
    So, put up your credentials, if you are man or woman enough to do so.

  50. dad29

    LeRoi the fake has no answers to my questions.

  51. Le Roi du Nord



    How old are you ?

  52. jjf

    More “real man” talk detected.

  53. Mar

    Again, Le Roi, you have nothing.
    And you refuse to tell us your experience in the field of firefighting, which we were talking about.

  54. jjf

    Mar, where’s your field of experience in this matter?

  55. Mar

    Go up and read my comments.

  56. dad29

    Le Roi, you have nothing.

    And he hasn’t for at least the last 2 years on this blogsite.

    All mouth.
