Where is the anti-police rhetoric taking us? It’s taking us here:
Marc LaQuon Payne, 44, is alleged to have driven into the cops Tuesday
They were talking in a Phoenix gas station lot at 2am when the car hit them
One officer, 41, had a broken leg; a 33-year-old had a head injury
The suspect was arrested and sent to hospital with serious injuries
Cops say they were targeted and believe the man was ‘driving impaired’
Payne has been charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault
Three police officers – aged 41, 36 and 33 – chat across the lot, unaware of what is about to happen, as the red car picks up speed. It was the 33-year-old’s first day on the job
…Payne was taken to a hospital in serious condition and is expected to be booked into jail after he’s released, according to police who believe he was driving impaired.
He is facing three counts of attempted first-degree murder, as well as two counts of aggravated assault because of how close he came to hitting the clerks in the store.
‘We are confident that this is an intentional act,’ Phoenix Police chief Joseph Yahner said at an afternoon news conference.
‘Our officers were targeted. I’m outraged by this incident. This stuff needs to stop.’
This is obscene.
Maybe Kaepernick should watch this video before he puts those socks back on, and think about the toxic environment he’s contributing to.
The cop on his first day of training has LITERALLY NEVER done anything wrong. And now his is in hospital with a head injury.
Because of what? The moms of some dead thugs that hide behind discredited lies like ‘hands up don’t shoot’ are given legitimacy as ‘mothers of the movement’? Becuase Obama goes on an internationla stage and speaks of ‘Instititional Racism’ in Police services?
If these people had been targeted because they were a specific ethnicity, or a specific relgion, or openly gay, or some other acknowledged group, this video would be held up as a hate crime.
But because the people being targeted and attacked have only their employment in common it is not a ‘hate’ crime.
