Plumbing the Depths of Human Depravity
At about 6:30pm on Saturday, September 12, 2020, in Compton, California, an as-yet unidentified person walked up to a police cruiser parked at the MLK Transit Center in Compton and opened fire.
Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies sat inside the cruiser. Both graduated from the police academy just 14 months ago.
“The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation.”
Without hesitation, the would-be murderer pulled a handgun their waistband and shot both police officers multiple times at point blank range.
It’s only by a miracle and God’s divine providence that these two police officers – a 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy and a 24-year-old man – survived the ambush by a depraved and gutless coward.
Both officers now fight for their lives in Lynwood, California’s St. Francis Medical Center. Thanks to the amazing staff at St. Francis Medical Centre, both officers are expected to survive.
It could easily have gone the other way – and not because of the attempted murder’s bullets.
A mob of utterly depraved people tried to block the entrance to St. Francis Medical Center to stop ambulances from reaching the Emergency Entrance.
“We hope they die!”
“Kill the police!”
“Death to police!”
These hate-filled degenerates screamed for the deaths of two critically-injured police officers.
Not satisfied with their attempts to ensure these officers died, this mob told police officers attempting to maintain peace outside the hospital, “You’re next!”
“Unacceptable behavior. The hospital should be a sanctuary, we should leave hospitals alone,” said Bishop Juan Carlos Mendez, a member of Churches in Action.
“They’re out there doing their jobs,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.
“And yet we have people fanning the flames of hatred and just turning up the volume when we don’t need to. We need to be turning it down.”
Police Show Admirable Restraint
In the face of threats and insults hurled at them by depraved examples of humanity at its worst, Los Angeles sheriffs and police showed admirable restraint.
They didn’t shoot a single “protester.” I applaud every single police officer on scene for their decorum in extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
Likewise, I unreservedly condemn every person in that hate-filled mob.
I also feel incredibly sad for each individual member of that mob because they are so filled with hate they can’t see killing another human being simply because of the uniform they wear is no different than killing another human being simply because of the color of their skin.
A Fundamental Truth
While it’s an unpopular truth in today’s anti-police environment, police officers don’t wake up in the morning, look themselves in the eye in the mirror and say, “Gee, I think I’ll go shoot a [insert minority of your choice here] person today.”
They just don’t.
Police officers typically wake up in the morning and think one of two things, and sometimes both.
- “I want to keep people safe from others with bad attitudes and worse intentions.”
- “I hope I make it home to my family at the end of my shift today.”
I guarantee you the 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy prayed the second thought every single day, and I’m willing to bet she also prayed the first.
By chanting “We hope they die!”, “Death to police!” and “You’re next”, these despicable degenerates highlight one more time (as if we need a reminder) three things:
- We have yet to plumb the depths of human depravity;
- We are more divided than at any other time in our history; and
- The ongoing “protests” have nothing to do with seeking justice, and everything to do with murdering anyone who dares disagree with their depraved values.
Before Canadians jump on top of their high moral horse, we are not immune from this horrifying level of stupidity.
In Toronto last night, another angry mob surrounded a Toronto Police Service cruiser with two officers inside.
Thankfully, they escaped the scene unharmed.
Dale Townsend says
I have been told that some members of the mob wore shirts with 189 as the slogan and that that is the code for “officer shot”. Is there any substance to either allegation?
Christopher di Armani says
I’ve never come across that allegation, Dale.
John Doe says
The wannabe killer was encouraged by the likes of Pelosi, Lebron, Kraperdnick, Mad Max Waters, and Kamela among many other demonrats – the party of hatred.
When the NFL tries to make the talentless Kraperdnick a hero, the one who originally kneeled with cartoon socks showing pigs in police uniforms denoting hatred and deadly malice, they exposed their true loyalties. It had NOTHING to do with black lives since they never even timidly mention the slaughter of blacks by other blacks just in Chicago never mind other cities like New York. They have nothing of value to offer society.
Let’s hope the whole world wakes up and exposes those deadly morons in two ways: first a resounding victory for Trump on Nov 3 and second by tuning out the elite wealthy idiots of the NFL and other wastrel so-called “sports.” And as you state, Canada cannot pretend smugness and superiority.

quote…”While it’s an unpopular truth in today’s anti-police environment, police officers don’t wake up in the morning, look themselves in the eye in the mirror and say, “Gee, I think I’ll go shoot a [insert minority of your choice here] person today.”
I’m not sure it is appropriate to comment upon the latest rounds of anti police vs anti civilian protest going on below the border and to some real extent up here in canada as well… but the quote above has gaps . Remembering the Dudley George [Ipperwash] set up and radio chatter amongst the police before he was shot in the stomach and killed is a reminder that the Police in canada have unparalleled power and ability to harm hurt kill.
This needs to stop, Race, colour, gender etc , everyone in Canada is a potential victim. Contemporary events bore that out.
I could list a whole category of personal observations and victimized experiences, but I will not, Fact is Police currently in uniform and retired have an unacceptable sway over who does and does not receive due fair justice in our streets and neighborhoods and can be the most fearsome entity to avoid in society.
Defund detool and demilitarize and remove unequal advantages that Police possess.
Christopher di Armani says
Please allow me to clarify, Peter.
I am NOT saying police killing civilians doesn’t happen, but that police officers don’t wake up thinking their primary task for the day is to go out and kill someone.
peter bolten says
I’d like to say here Christopher that I have had a several experiences with police, both good and not-so-good and one really bad case of misconduct and abuse.
Can never forget on a Good Friday before i took off to work for the afternoon, two RCMP patrol cars came into my front yard and the lead officer came towards me with his hand on his gun at the ready to draw.
The reason?… a neighbor and her husband called in a false complaint when i earlier challenged their piss-poor driving in our street and damn near ran down my young two year old toddler in front of a driveway. Because he was a “former teacher and a teacher can do no wrong” is how the cop said it to us [ go analyse that one and look for the holes in that sieve ].
I don’t l know where this cop got off acting like John Wayne and signalling his younger partner to flank me. Perhaps because i am a grandfathered firearms category holder?
Some police certainly may not think they are going to go out and shoot someone today however many do entertain the thought of superiority and spewing out verbals and acting as judge and jury behaviours . Many have biases and will delay or deny service to a member of the public and will not pursue an investigation into frivolous or malicious complaints that result in wrongful actions or false charges upon a person. Some will condone an assault inside private property and look the other way.
I know too from personal experience that mob-mentality based on financial and judicial privileges can sway a responding officers’ opinions and actions and frame a situation that is totally incorrect.. And the Crown seems unwilling to respond to requests to dig into these.
One can go way into complaints with the government and headquarters and MPs and Papers and still not make a dent into this closed police society.
My belief and experiences are partly speculative why this is, but the fact i own firearms safely legally and am on their system as-such is a common denominator that can not not be discounted.
I am a frontline health care worker, NO criminal record, served with the Military twice as a patriot, an advocate for children and human rights. and care for the vulnerable. I have to undergo regular stringent reviews that put me above the level of “vettedness” that regular firearms owners endure.
And when one such as I have had a grand-relative [ and other villagers] taken away at night and executed by the nazis for “owning a gun”, one thinks long and hard about Police actions and misconducts. Seemingly ‘little’ deviant mis-steps by an Officer can lead to a career long history of more sinister actions and in itself become a built in culture with that organization.
Peter, I respectfully disagree. Your comments regarding Ipperwash are misguided and missing vital information. Dudley George had a gun … bottom line. It wasn’t about race. It was about protecting their fellow officers when he pointed and fired a weapon at other officers. Due to technicalities, the fact that Dudley had a gun was not admissible as evidence in court.
As you could list a whole category of personal observations to your experiences, many of us can create our own lists of great police officers doing their jobs without prejudice or malice. The steps in a civilized society is to stop the tribal mentality [You people (?) did this to my people (?)]. Laws of the land and our government are created to make everyone equal. The tribal mentality divides us.
Callie McHardy says
These are not protesters. They’re evil devil’s spawn. I pray Karma rewards them for their despicable actions.
Clive Edwards says
Anyone who doesn’t understand why the police do what they do needs to review “Peel’s Principles of Policing”..
It is our individual duty, in a democracy, to support and when necessary enforce our laws. Compliance with our laws is not up for debate..
We need to learn respect for our laws is re-enforced through our various life stages – from kindergarten, through grade school, college and in our working life. We need to approach life with love, humility and unless personal protection is involved, non violence.
I want to know if these two officers were following unconstitutional orders, breaking their oath, before making further comment.
Christopher di Armani says
If you watch the video, Joe, they were sitting in their vehicle. They did absolutely nothing to provoke their attempted assassinations.
