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.
