Four police officers have been shot to death so far this month. On January 10, LAPD Officer Fernando Arroyos was killed in a gang shooting. Last Friday, Officer Jason Rivera of the NYPD was gunned down when responding to a domestic abuse report. His partner, Officer Wilbert Mora, 27, was critically wounded in the attack and ultimately succumbed to his injuries four days later. Then on Sunday, Houston Corporal Charles Galloway was shot during a traffic stop.
Randy Sutton of The Wounded Blue says officials in blue cities and states are tying themselves in knots to not offend the wrong people.
"The governor of New York can't even bring herself to say that it was a criminal that pulled the trigger," he reports of Gov. Kathy Hochul (D). "In her words, it was a shot from an illegal gun."
Black Lives Matter added salt to New York's wound by tweeting about the city having "tear-jerker press conferences and proclamation of heroes coming soon."
"Black Lives Matter is a hate group," Sutton responds. "They hate law-enforcement, and in their statement, they talked about how dangerous the police are, not the criminals."
Sutton lays the blame for the increase in violent aggression against police partly at the feet of liberal district attorneys and prosecutors. He says the system is working exactly as intended.
"This is not unintended," he submits. "This is part of the overall strategy that has been put into place by the likes of George Soros."
The endgame, Sutton says, is "to destabilize the nation."
