26 officers have been gunned down in 2018 alone.
Right now you can find several trending stories about police officers in the news cycle. At a Waffle house in North Carolina an officer choked a young black man who was resisting detainment. A week before that police officers at a different Waffle House in Alabama were forced to throw a woman onto the ground after she was resisting arrest. In Sacramento people are still protesting the shooting of a black man who was evading police officers and had just been witnessed trespassing.
Also recently a poor black man who didn’t do nothin’ but leave his car idling outside of a 7/11(which let me tell you it IS illegal to leave a running car unattended for a variety of reasons especially in public). Then he refused to stop and speak with police officers who confronted him for his “multiple law violations” and he was arrested. The NAACP held a press conference for him where they denounced the police for unfairly targeting colored people.
On Twitter you can find tons of extremist anti-police rhetoric coming from crazed Leftists and this is just a drop in the crazy bucket. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of these:
The media is fueling a new, violent, anti-police movement and that is why you won’t read about the 26 police officers that have been murdered as a result of gunfire…in just the first 5 months of 2018.
These were NOT accidental deaths. Only 1 officer has died in 2018 as a result of accidental gunfire. So yes you read that right, a whopping 26 police officers have already died in 2018 alone as a result of gunfire. FOX news would be the only major outlet to comment on this story, it definitely won’t be MSNBC, CNN or the New York Times.
The WashingtonPost keeps a log of all the people killed by police, but I don’t see them talking about all the police officers that are being murdered at an alarming rate. I see lots of dangerous anti-police rhetoric coming from CNN and far-Left sites like The Root. Just browse the comments section of any video of a black man being arrested by the police.
Police officers are genuinely great people when you speak with them and get to know them. Police officers are decent human-beings that are concerned about the violence in our communities. Of course there are extremely rare cases of police brutality, that should concern everyone, not just when it’s a black man that gets shot, but 9 times out of 10 it is not a real claim of police brutality.
Police officers have to deal with gangs that are armed to the teeth and on top of that the Democrats trying their best to make Law-Enforcement’s job insanely difficult with all sorts of arbitrary restrictions. The Left will bring down an army of lawyers if a police officer even looks at a black man funny, but they never direct any of that energy towards trying to deradicalize their base.
In fact, part of their Marxist agenda is to degrade all faith in our local police and they have the media, both news and entertainment, fully on their side. So while we are dominating in politics, we still face an uphill battle in trying to take back the media when it comes to trying to counter the Soros funded anti-police movement.

End of Watch: March 6th, 2018
Police Officer Christopher Morton. 30 years old. 3 years with the force. This case is incredibly strange and still flummoxes me as to how exactly this played out. Apparently a 911 call was received where screaming could be heard in the background but the caller didn’t give any details and hung up before the dispatcher could ask any questions.
The call was traced and three officers were sent out to the residence and when they arrived a man opened fire on them with a rifle. The officers began to return fire and attempted to enter the home. The man retreated but continued to fire eventually striking all three officers. Morton was transferred to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.
What confuses me about this case is that fact that they traced the call to the wrong house…yes the house that placed the 911 call was located 15 miles away from the house the officers responded too. The man that opened fire on the officers was out on bail for weapons and methamphetamine charges and was under investigation for a rape…How in the world were the officers sent to that home of all places?
It seems incredibly strange and sure it could have been an honest mistake, but I don’t find a whole lot of evidence for officers being sent to the wrong location in this day and age.

So this is the toll that the anti-police rhetoric has taken on our police forces. As the Liberal media is enraged that a police officer dare choke someone who is clearly resisting arrest, they totally ignore the deaths and families destroyed by their vile anti-police movement.
Stop hating the police. They are here to help us. Thank a police officer for their service when you see them because you or someone you know may need their help one day!
