There have been at least three additional attacks against police since Thursday, at least two of the attacks were ambushes. Black militants appear to be responsible in most if not all of the attacks.
A Fox News article reports “Police say officers have been targeted in Tennessee, Georgia and Missouri in the aftermath of two high-profile killings of black men by law enforcement.”
“The attack in Tennessee occurred hours before the killing of five police officers in Dallas on Thursday night during a protest. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the attacker told authorities that he was frustrated by the recent killings by police of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.”
“Police have not disclosed a motive in Friday’s attacks in Georgia and Missouri, which have been described as ambushes.”
“In a fourth attack early Friday, a motorist fired at a police car as the officer drove by. In all, four officers were wounded. The officer wounded outside St. Louis is in critical but stable condition. The wounded officers are expected to survive.”
“A suburban St. Louis police chief says a motorist shot an officer three times as the officer walked back to his car during a traffic stop.”
“Ballwin Police Chief Kevin Scott said at a news conference Friday that the attack happened around 11 a.m. and was captured on video.”
“St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the suspect, who is in his 30s, ‘ambushed’ the officer, who is in critical but stable condition. His identity wasn’t released.”
The breakdown in relations between police and many in the Black community can be attributed to the liberal media lying about recent police shooting incidents and politicians like Barack Obama taking the side of Black criminals over the police. The Michael Brown incident was portrayed at first as a bad police shooting, but Brown had just stolen a box of cigars, assaulted the store owner and attacked the responding police officer twice. Almost every recent police shooting of a Black could have been avoided if the Black individual had done what the police asked him to.
People are wondering how one shooter in Dallas could kill five police and wound seven. Police found body armor at the home of the shooter so it seems likely he was wearing a bullet proof vest, but still you’d think police would have stopped him sooner …unless of course years of political correctness and liberal politicians prosecuting police officers for doing their jobs caused the Dallas police to hesitate.
Rush Limbaugh noted on his talk radio show: “there was a study by the New York Police Department. The former acting director of the National Institute of Justice found that black officers in the New York Police Department were 3.3 times more likely to use their guns at shooting scenes than white officers. So, A, officers are more hesitant about shooting armed black suspects than armed white suspects to the point where now there’s a risk that officers are hesitating so long that they may put their own lives at risk.”
