OPINION| Is anyone really surprised to be reading a headline like this nowadays? We all knew this was bound to happen the moment the media started telling everyone it was justified to use violence as a form of protest.
This infamous clip of CNN’s hack, Chris Cuomo, comes to mind:
CNN's Chris Cuomo: "Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful."

Combine this with the constant demonization of the police by Democrats and their lackeys in the media and you have the perfect recipe for dead cops. With all the civil unrest and violence on the streets, it is only a matter of time before police somewhere in the country, are involved in another shooting. Last night it happened in Wisconsin and part of the state erupted in flames.
Meanwhile, across the country in Maryland, three police officers were ‘ambushed’ by gunmen and shot while responding to a call, local authorities are reporting.
Fox News explains:
‘Prince George’s County police were responding to a reported home invasion around 6:30 p.m. in Hyattsville, a city about 32 miles southwest of Baltimore, Interim Police Chief Hector Velez said.
“Within minutes they arrived at the scene, and within seconds they came under gunfire,” Velez told reporters outside Prince George’s Hospital Center. “They were ambushed.”
Officers returned gunfire and took two men into custody unharmed, police said. The injured officers were expected to recover.’
Velez said the three officers sustained varying degrees of injuries–one was struck in the chest and suffered injuries to an arm and a leg; another officer was shot in the back; the third officer was wounded in the foot.
The officers shot in the chest and the back were saved by their bullet-proof vests, Velez said. He also said officers provided self-care before being rushed to a hospital for treatment. One officer needed surgery as of Sunday night.’
Luckily, the officers all survived and are going to be able to go home and see their families again. The left has created an environment in which no one in their right mind would want to be a cop. Police officers go to work every day with a target on your back, and when attacked they must constantly be worrying about getting in trouble for defending your life and that of your partners.
Luckily for law-abiding citizens there are still enough brave men and women who are willing to put it all on the line to ensure this radical leftist uprising does not take over our institutions.
Honestly, the left better hope that the cops are able to contain them, for if the police are overrun, it will be ‘We, the people’ who they have to deal with, and I can assure you that will not be pretty.
“These officers are coming to work to protect, defend the residents of Prince George’s County … And this evening, these heroes did just that.” Velez told the media.
