Two deputies shot while they sat in their vehicle in LA County. Both deputies are in a critical state in hospital. Yet another reminder of the risks inherent in protecting and serving the community. They have my prayers, just a horrific situation.
In response to this vile, cowardly attack I have been shocked to see people use the publicity to attack police. On one level I shouldn’t be surprised, the internet, particularly social media is a fecund platform for the bizarre, incendiary and the fringe.
But what got me was how it seamlessly hooked into the anti-police narrative so prevalent today. How did we come to this place where so many speak so badly of those charged with protecting and serving?
It isn’t universal, I have seen many who are supportive of Law Enforcement, but there is a growing discontent with police.
I would be interested in your thoughts.
