Around the nation, persistent protests have been springing up in cities like Portland and Minneapolis, as Americans lash out against a number of high profile incidents of police brutality.
Of course, this has pushed some radicalized individuals over the edge, and one such cretin ambushed two Los Angeles police officers over the weekend, in broad daylight as they sat in their patrol vehicle.
Now, as those two officers fight for their lives in a local hospital, (and with a massive manhunt underway for the suspect), protesters have descended on that healthcare facility with an unfathomably awful message.
Protesters have blocked the entrance to the hospital where the two Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies ambushed in a shooting Saturday are fighting for their lives, chanting: ‘We hope they f***ing die.’
The officers, one the 31-year-old mother of a six-year-old boy, were shot at the Metro Blue Line station at Willowbrook Avenue and Oak Street in Compton by a male suspect who then fled the scene.
The President had harsh words for the perpetrator of the terrible crime.
Donald Trump on Sunday said the man who opened fire should face a ‘fast trial death penalty’ if the deputies die. He earlier called the shooter an ‘animal’ who needed to be ‘hit hard’ as the FBI was called in to help investigate.
The ugly anecdote described earlier wasn’t the only instance of ant-police hate:
Another demonstrator tells police: ‘Y’all gonna die one by one. This ain’t gonna stop.’
There has been little information made available thus far about the condition of the officers involved in the shooting.
