We’ve published several stories lately about injuries (and worse) subjected upon police officers across the nation.

Folks, we finally have to say, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

It is disgusting and incomprehensible that our society has devolved so much as to have absolutely no respect for the lives of law enforcement officers.

Here are some of the heinous acts against police officers over the past few days:

St. Louis Police Officer Killed By Barricaded Gunman

Attempted Murder Suspect In Florida Opens Fire On Police Officers

Alabama Cop Shot At While Conducting Traffic Stop

Even liberal ABC News admits that police officers’ lives have been increasingly endangered:

In the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police in late May, tremendous scrutiny was placed on policing with peaceful protests broadly calling for reform. But accompanying that was a rise in an anti-police sentiment that, experts say, manifested itself in attacks on officers, patrol vehicles and precinct station houses, leaving cops around the country feeling under siege.

Folks, this has to STOP.

One main problem stems from liberal politicians who cultivated (or flat out ignored) an anti-police agenda as a way of overcompensating for the poor actions of a very select few bad apples. They’ve allowed mob rule to take over, and the mobs are hellbent on hurting or killing police officers.

We’ve seen pols in our area take that lackadaisical attitude toward protests as well.

The rioters and protesters continue to attack and injure police officers. Meanwhile, professional athletes who boycotted games and team activities will now wear the name of a man who violated a restraining order stemming from an alleged sexual assault on their uniforms.

The National Fraternal Order of Police noted the severe hypocrisy:

 

We leave you with some poignant words from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.

Lives matter, folks. There doesn’t need to be any qualifying word before that phrase.
