After 4 Officers Shot, Furious Police Union Pres. Lays into Media, Antifa-Types. ‘Sick & Tired of Dirtbags Trying To Take Our Lives… the Ones Spreading Rhetoric That Police Officers Are the Enemy…’ Included in the category of Dirtbags would be Obama and Holder.
Houston Police Officers’ Union President Joe Gamaldi slammed “dirtbags” who spread anti-law enforcement rhetoric after four Houston police officers were shot Monday night during a drug raid. The shootout took place while officers were investigating a drug case the southeast section of the city, according to ABC News. They were met with gunfire as soon as they reached the door of the home they were targeting. Four were wounded immediately, with two shot in the neck, according to CNN. Two suspects were found dead at the scene. Initial reports indicated five officers had been shot, but CNN reported that the five had suffered a knee injury.
Speaking at the hospital, Gamaldi exploded on those who support anti-cop rhetoric. “We are sick and tired of having targets on our back,” he said. Police officers have been under fire from the left in recent years, especially with protests from so-called antifa thugs and NFL players like Colin Kaepernick. The media only fuels the left’s outrage by zealously reporting on alleged incidents of police brutality.
This war on our police, the war that the left claims is justified, began in earnest when Obama and Holder declared that any action by police against non-whites was racist. Hours before the murders of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, Obama was again spouting false claims about racism by the police. He sees racism whenever there is any disparity in outcomes, no matter what the cause. Obama, Holder, and others inflame passions, but take no responsibility, and instead use events to push for more gun control. Yet, shouting racism can endanger the lives of police officers. The Dallas police chief told us one of the shooters “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
After the Trayvon Martin case, there were numerous cases around the country of blacks attacking whites and invoking Martin’s name. Let’s not forget that NYPD cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were executed by a black man who was angry about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
Obama, Holder, and the Obama regime spoke out repeatedly on the Martin and Brown cases. They repeatedly claimed racism was involved, but in fact there was no evidence of that in either case.
Obama was also wrong to infer racism from higher arrest rates or prison-sentence lengths. “African Americans are arrested at twice the rate of whites,” he said. What he failed to note is that blacks commit murder at almost six times the rate whites do.
“African-American and Hispanic population, who make up only 30 percent of the general population, make up more than half of the incarcerated population,” he added. But Obama ignores the facts put out by his own Department of Justice. The FBI claims that gangs commit 80 percent of crimes in the US, and the National Gang Center estimates that 82 percent of gang members are black or Hispanic.
And the war on police, a war fueled by the outrageous and false statements of Obama, Holder, and others whose goal is to bring chaos into our society, grows and grows with constant and consistent justification for the killing of these Americans who have accepted the role of protecting the public.
