Sad State Of Affairs *Open Thread*

July 14, 2020

Yep, that’s our nation as the Democrat-supported riots, destruction of statues, violence, and attacks on police officers continues.

And you know, it’s all Trump’s fault that the Democrat-controlled cities and states releasing criminals, defunding the police, abolishing plainsclothes units, and refusing to prosecute those responsible for the violence spreading across these cities are seeing more crimes. They have no one but themselves to blame, but that won’t happen…

Meanwhile, over the weekend, sadly, TRAGICALLY, two police officers were murdered by a criminal who had no business being out of jail in the first damn place. Now two families and a department are reeling from the loss of these two men. Here’s more from Fox59:

McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez identified the slain officers as Edelmiro Garza, 45, and Ismael Chavez, 39. Garza was an officer with the police department for more than eight years while Chavez had over two years of experience.

“We have lost two brave public servants who sought only to keep peace in our City,” Rodriguez, visibly distraught, told The (McAllen) Monitor.

The officers first met with two people who reported assaults that took place inside a nearby home on the south side of McAllen around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Rodriguez said. But the alleged shooter, whom police identified as 23-year-old Audon Ignacio Camarillo, opened fire when officers attempted to enter the home.

“They were doing their job. That is what they were supposed to do. The person was a suspect of the incident, met our officers at the door, and shot at both officers,” Rodriguez said. “Both officers suffered fatal wounds, they have both passed away as a result. The officers never had a chance to suspect deadly assault on them, much less death.”

Camarillo shot and killed himself shortly after opening fire on the officers, Rodriguez said, adding that the suspect hid behind a vehicle after other officers responded to the scene. Camarillo had a few run-ins with police beginning in 2016 to his most recent arrest last month on assault charges, according to public records. […](Click here to read the rest.)

Meanwhile, the teenage daughter of one of the officers had a tribute to her dad on Twitter with a “Blue Lives Matter” heart. Her moving tribute was later taken down. Why? Because the liberal Cancel Culture mob that abhors free speech made her life miserable attacking her right after her dad died. All in the service of the Marxist anti-American BLM. From Gateway Pundit:

Savannah Chavez, the 18-year-old daughter of Officer Chavez, posted about her grief on Twitter shortly after the news broke.

“Words cannot describe the pain I’m in, but I’m glad my dad is at peace. you were an amazing man and anyone who ever came across you knew that. I’m going to miss you so much. you died doing what you loved most, you died a hero. i love you daddy, see you soon,” Chavez wrote in her heartbreaking tweet, along with photos with her dad.

Though most normal people responded to the distraught young woman with compassion and kindness, the left did not hold back on attacking her.

Many of the shocking and cruel tweets directed towards her were compiled and shared by the Nationalist Review. They included people saying that he “finally became a good cop,” now that he was dead, and worse. Others scolded her for daring to talk about his death, telling her “now is not the time or place” and to “read the room.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

That’s how the “Tolerant” Left behaves. If you dare to cross them, to have a mind of your own, a voice of your own, that does not fit their very narrow (though constantly changing – keep up!) standards, you will be attacked, silenced, and “canceled.” That’s how they roll. Even to the grieving daughter of a slain police officer.

Then there is this from New York City. That should surprise no one considering how de Blasio has handled NYC, painting a big ol’ Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue in Trump Tower, using tax dollars to do so. And he helped…

In the infinite (cough, choke) wisdom of Mayor de Blasio releasing a boatload of criminals from Rikers Island, those criminals are doing what criminals do: commit crimes. In this case, it was a gang member attacking a police officer with the support of the roaring crowd around him. From the Daily Mail:

An NYPD police officer ended up in a headlock after an attempt to disperse a crowd on a street corner in the Bronx earlier this month went horribly wrong.

[…]

As the police attempted to arrest one of the men to the cheers of the crowd, a second officer found himself powerless as he was placed in a headlock – a move that is soon to be banned by the city’s own police force.

‘F*** him up! F*** him up!’ yells a man who was filming the July 1st encounter as the officer is dragged from one side of the street to the other.

Oh, but wait – there’s more – and none of this should surprise you:

The NYPD stated the ‘headlocker’ was a known gang member. He turned himself in one week later to the 46th Precinct.

The man who has not been named has been arrested 11 times in the past for charges including gang assault, criminal possession of a loaded firearm and robbery, among others according to The Post.

The suspect was released without charge pending further investigation by the Bronx District Attorney’s office

‘The NYPD was disappointed that the individual was not charged initially. The violence against the police officer speaks for itself. We are now in discussions with the District Attorney regarding the case,’ an NYPD spokesperson said. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Here’s a video of the altercation:

And the crowd just cheered.

This is where we are now in the USA. If you support the Blue, you are attacked, even if you just lost your father over the weekend as a result of the actions of a known criminal. If you don’t capitulate to the raging mob, YOU’RE the problem, not the raging mob.

The mob can suck it. I support the Blue.

Thankfully, so does the President, who spoke out on Monday about the heroic police officers who serve every day in the face of danger and constant attacks, whether it be verbal or physical. Good on him for doing so, too:

“Our officers have been under vicious assault,” the president said. “Reckless politicians have defamed our law enforcement heroes as the enemy. The radical politicians are waging war on innocent Americans — that’s what you’re doing when you play with the police.”

Mr. Trump hosted a meeting with law-enforcement officers and people who’ve been helped by them. One mother, Kamira Boyd of Charleston, South Carolina, described how her 12-day-old daughter was saved by an officer who performed CPR on her.

“He just took her from my arms and proceeded helping her,” Ms. Boyd told the president. […] (Click here to read more.)

For those in Blue whom we have lost or who have been injured in this Summer of the Mob, I leave you with this:
