  1. As I watch these reports of police officers being assassinated by 2 or more snipers, I want to thank our President for his 7+ years of racially divisive rhetoric and George Soros for his funding of racial violence from groups like Black Lives Matter. 4 officers dead so far of at least 11 who have been shot and at least one civilian wounded in the leg while shielding her 4 small children.

  2. A comment from across the pond.
    From much of what the American media has been showing recently, some police appear to be very racist, and are imposing their version of law and order instead of maintain law and order with the consent of the public.
    A few days ago, America celebrated rebelling against, and forcefully throwing off, a legitimate, if oppressive government.
    If the police are viewed by a large minority of the population as an oppressive force being used by the state against them, then, to many it will seem to be their patriotic duty to stand up against the state and resist, by force if necessary.
    Sorry, but this does seem to fit in with a perceived notion that many Americans consider their government to be controlled by sinister forces that are conspiring against them.

    • there are definitely bully cops, but none who go out intending to shoot someone that day. The race war idea was very fringe and rejected until the fringe took the whitehouse and justice dept. and promotes division over and over through the media bully pulpit. We (the multitude) reject it, but as a few misfit murderers in Israel keep everyone there on edge, they are trying to do the same here. So far not working.....
