2 California deputies shot in apparent ambush in patrol car

Eternal Rest Grant un to the policemen oh Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon them.

Have mercy on the executioner.

What about federal law enforcement? Should they quit, too?
How about the US military?
Do you also think Americans should not be allowed to own firearms?

That’s not a wish to harm law enforcement. It is a wish to harm people who live in high crime areas in the inner cities, many of whom are people of color.

This is a result of the brutal anti-American lie of systemic racism. When people repeat this lie over and over, when people lie about America’s police officers and departments, eventually something like this happens. And just as bad, crime rates go up. But that just helps the cause.

I have both friends and relatives that are police. They make a pretty good living with great benefits, including the one that works in a relatively small town. Partly because they work tons of overtime, though, and some have ‘side hustles’ working security. I don’t know if that is true everywhere, however.

I agree with this 100%.

The case with teachers’ unions, too. It is time to end public sector unions

On the contrary, the perpetrator should have an appointment with the executioner after a fair trial. The warrior kills under orders. The policeman kills before due process can be completed. The executioner only kills those who have received due process for their crimes that place them outside the pale of civilized society.

I disagree. Individual workers have less bargaining power than employers. Why should they not be able to freely associate and form and organization to represent their interests?

I still see the sense in it. Those who do not, should have taken another career path from the start.

This level of bigotry is disturbing, and rather ironic. No one who says “Cops never change” have the integral moral authority to protest bigotry in others. To stand up against bigotry in society, one must first remove the beam of prejudice from one’s own eye.

In a pure sense I’d agree. But modern labor unions are so infested with corruption and so misguided they need disbanded and started fresh.

Any mob blocking a hospital entrance or blocking a highway or bridge thus tying up traffic, some of which is bound to be emergencies, such as ambulances, pregnancies, police 911 calls, should be met with full force to be cleared out as quickly as possible. Start with tear gas and take it from there. If anyone disagrees with this ask me them how they would feel if it was them or a family member whose emergency was unattended to because some mob decided to tie up traffic or hospital entrances.

I pray you, and all the rest of your liberal counterparts, never have to know what a society without police is like. They do a job that the majority of people are not brave enough to do. When we run from a mass shooter, they’re running towards him. When the World Trade Center was under attack, and people were desperately fleeing for their lives, police and other first responders entered those burning buildings looking for survivors, knowing that they were not likely to come out again.

God bless our police for their dedication to keeping the peace. They don’t need any additional training. Parents have 18 years to teach their kids that rioting, looting, robbery, arson, burglary, assault, and murder are wrong. If they fail to take in that message, that’s not the fault of the law enforcement officer. If someone resists arrest and gets shot, he’s an idiot, not a victim.

The police should all quit their jobs so we learn our lesson, it’s the only way. Also, I’m not a liberal.

This is a good reminder that a significant number of Americans believe cops being able to challenge you to a game of Simon Says and murder you if you lose (or to be fair if you win too) is a good thing.

If tomorrow, there were no police, some would still do the work of protecting their community. Criminals would still find police ready to protect the weak. Who would stop them?

Therein is the misunderstanding of anarchy. If a man serving as police can break the law and use excessive force, the store owner, the neighbor, the relative, of a victim would be able to use all the excessive force he wanted, without breaking the law. There could be no civil rights violation, as there would be no one to enforce even an extreme violation of civil rights. Anarchy is not freedom from oppression. Anarchy is a complete freedom for any degree of oppression people can get away with.

Isn’t that an issue for the members (assuming laws are not being broken)?

I’m not content letting people self regulate when they wield enormous political influence that runs contrary to what I believe to be right. Luckily for them I’ll never have the power to do anything about it though.

One of the victims, Claudia Apolinar, likely Hispanic name. You know, there were some pictures released. I saw her handling the situation (see story), from pictures, standing up and she looked like she was bleeding from the jaw area. That’s confirmation on where her injury was, shot in the jaw.

I still have not heard the name of her partner. She made a tourniquet for him.

So, God bless she and her partner; and Lord please protect peace officers doing their duty.

Heavy.com does appear to have some of those photos of what these officers went through. Search for her name.

It is this kind of misrepresentation of policing by the Democrat left that leads people to believe they can assassinate police officers.
