"We hope they die" chanted the protesters blocking the entrance to the emergency room for 2 deputies shot in an ambush.

I'm reading "2 California deputies shot in apparent ambush in patrol car" (WaPo):
The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy... were shot while sitting in their patrol car at a Metro rail station [in Compton, California] and were able to radio for help, the sheriff said.... “The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation,” the department stated. ...

Protesters gathered outside the emergency room at the hospital where the injured deputies were being treated. “To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling “We hope they die” referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL,” the sheriff’s department tweeted. “People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.”

A radio reporter who was near the protest scene was taken into custody, KABC-TV reported. The sheriff’s department later tweeted that the reporter interfered with the arrest of a male protester....
The response from our President:

Is the shooter a child? He/she looks shorter than the top of the car.

I hope to God you didn’t misgender the shooter, because that would be bad.

While I'm not a big police supporter, last week I finally became so pissed off about the defund the police people, plus antifa and the BLM crowd, that I ordered a Blue Lives Matter lawn sign. Should go good with my multiple Trump law signs, and oh, I just ordered a Trump flag also.

It very much looks like a child, even the way the gun is held. Maybe a woman, but you have to wonder if it's gang-related since they will use kids and have recently declared open season on police.

Wince said...

How did "protesters" know to assemble and block the entrance to the emergency room so soon after the shooting?

buwaya said...

The hospital attack is a deliberate attempt to create a reaction. To enrage someone.
Everything after what could well be a random act (the shooting), in these cases, is gamed, planned, messaging and decision trees set up, and organized.

If this, then do that, else thus other thing.

A reaction in the heat of the moment to the gross outrage is what they hope for.

Revenge is best served cold, if there is someone left after all this to take revenge of course.

Looks like a child put up to do the job. The police would not have suspected a kid coming at them. They will going forward. Reading about the blocking of the emergency drive, the chanting "let them die", and a child walking up to do the killing, I'm reminded of Graham Nash's song, "Teach Your Children".

Crosby & Nash's generation- my generation- did a miserable job of it.

To my eyes the shooter moves like a child. Could be a female. Question for you, Althouse. Does it make the crime less heinous if the shooter is not an adult male? Or more so?

And I agree with Sebastian — I cannot sink so far below my basic humanity to unify with people who ambush cops or any other people, much less unify with the sort of people who would block entrances to hospital emergency rooms.

If they’re not undercover cops, one can only conclude these nitwits are overgrown infants, who believe their extreme temper tantrums and stamp-the-floor certainty of their own righteousness justifies any behavior, no matter how obnoxious.

I am inclined to think there are self-righteous assholes AND undercover cops in play.

-- I think it will be interesting if a protester on the right gets arrested and sues based on view point discrimination. I doubt it would fly, since, you know, they WERE breaking the law. But it would be interesting if they could far enough along to force discovery on why charges were brought against them but guys like the Portland shooter were let off free to murder again.

Which, I suppose, begs the question: how, if at all, should the President respond?

The president responded the may most normal people would respond. Again, I wonder, how can any cop wake up each day and decide to go to work?

WHO are the protesters? WHO are the killers? Race? Politics?

If the news media are silent on the details, we all know they're black and BLM/antifa.

Drago said...

DanTheMan: "If the shooter is 13 or younger, I don't believe they can be tried as an adult in California."

In Chicago we have reports that antifa/BLM/Howard's Heroes are now openly aligning with the street gangs (similar to all leftist movements across the globe) and those street gangs have made it known that if any police officer goes for their weapon the street gangs will execute those police officers.

This is what the democraticals/LLR-lefties are supporting and cheering.

And one particular gang tactic has long been to use very young children for executions and other crimes precisely because they cannot be tried as adults and once the child criminals come of age their records are closed and they get to basically start over in a legal sense.

It comes as no surprise at all that we are now seeing the tactical deployment of established street gang tactics in support of what the democraticals/LLR-lefties are trying to achieve with their marxist programs.

Yup. Corollary, anyone who doesn't respond the way Trump did is subnormal, or at any rate less than human.

Cookie,

Why are you acting so naive? I thought you were down with the revolution.

What did the old Russian revolutionaries say? "the worse, the better." These "protesters" are not advocates for reform the want "nothing short of revolution."

I would guess they are secretly hoping for a Trump win to keep things at a boil and to bring the revolution closer. I think their actions support that thought.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

Jeff said...

@Robert Cook,
Have you even a sliver of evidence to support your charge that undercover cops may be responsible for the assassination of other cops? Of course you don't, and in almost any other circumstance you'd see how heinous it is to say something like that without evidence. Is this really the kind of thing you want to be remembered for?

buwaya said...

They are provocateurs. They are like the Westboro Church vermin.
The Westboro group would try to sue those they provoked.
This lot though is doing it for political reasons.

The point is to get someone to attack them, or perhaps to get someone on the right, elsewhere, to commit some act of retaliatory violence, or maybe just to "enhance the contradictions".

The MSM can then use the violent reaction to wave its favored bloody shirt, while ignoring the other sides bloody shirts. Consider the immense hue and cry about Charlottesville while much greater things are ignored.

It’s been obvious from the beginning that this has never been about “justice” - a frightening word when used by fanatics and morons - and is all about an urban power struggle.

We do know in 2016 democratical operatives would show up to Trump rallies with nazi gear.

We also know all about the long history of COINTELPRO.

But only a moron would-be stalinist would think the use of children from the hood to commit heinous crimes hasn't been a decades long tactic of street gangs which have, as in Chicago, openly aligned with antifa/BLM to go after cops and that somehow, the cops got that kid to shoot these police officers.

But then, lying about something like that is precisely what a would be stalinist would do.

Yes, it's so like undercover cops to really play the role by shooting fellow LEOs in their squad car. Cookie, you can't be serious. Can you?

I don't agree with that part of your statement. They will always have something to rail against. When Obama was president we had Occupy Wall Street and the birth of BLM. But it is much better to protest and cause problems with a Republican president because the Dems will join in with massive numbers.

L Day said...

I'm a fairly knowledgeable photographer, I know something about the images produced through super wide angle lenses. The apparent short height of the shooter is not the effect of an extreme wide angle lens. The shooter is EXTREMELY short, a child, a small teen or a extremely short young adult.

natatomic said...

I don’t know....if Biden wins, the riots might die down for a while since the “correct” candidate won (according to BLM and the left).
But what happens when another black criminal is shot/killed by cops during the Biden administration? And it will happen, of course, just as a white man will be shot and killed by cops again. With 350,000,000 in the country, someone armed and dangerous is bound to resist arrest again; that’s not gonna stop just because Biden wins.
So anyway, if Biden wins, next time a black man is killed by cops, the riots will continue. None of this will stop just because there is a ‘D’ in the White House. The Ferguson riots happened during Obama’s term, after all.

I guess that begs the question - when will this REALLY end? And what will it take? Whatever it is, I don’t think it’ll be pretty.

Lem said...

Let's not forget. There was anti-police demonstrations during Obama and remember what happened? police started getting shot at and killed. It's happening again.

Looks like a woman and runs like one.

The shooter runs away in an odd manner because his/her pants are falling down. If you look closer at the video you can see them start to slip down when the shooter fires. Also a closer inspection shows that they are already sagging when the shooter walks towards the Sheriff's vehicle. That suggest to me that the shooter is male, you don't generally see too many women with the saggy pants look.

I’m more in the Stalinists using useful idiots to discredit Trotskyites camp. There is a civil war in the Democrat Party right now. Everyday it becomes clearer that defeating Trump is very much a secondary concern. Not defeating Trump and successfully blaming the anti-capitalists is the goal. Then that clean, well-spoken, “moderate” Hispanic congresswoman (or what have you) can put Pence away without breaking a sweat.

There's some outrage over the arrest of the reporter, but, on the front page anyway, there were no reports of the attempted murder of the cops.....I'm sure Kamala and Biden will condemn this. I wonder how they feel about shouting "oink, oink" at cops. Is that that hate speech or does it fall under the 1st Amendment?

"Crowds of protesters blocked the entrance to St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, where the wounded officers were in a critical condition, police said. Some protesters chanted “we hope they die,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter. A witness told ABC7 that some had tried to break into the hospital’s emergency room.”

No COVID shaming here though. Not for these guys, even though they are trying to violate an emergency room, where anti COVID precautions are intense for good reason. COVID shaming is only used in the narrative if the perps can be linked to Trump.

Crazy Jane said...

I'm not sure I understand what the protesters want. The police never have been of any help to me when I truly could have used it, but as a theoretical construct I believe we need some countervailing force besides an armed citizenry to maintain calm on the streets.

In Portland, where I grew up, I doubt the Antifa idealists spend their mornings ringing doorbells to encourage votes for Biden. It looks like straight-up anarchy pursued by a bunch of people, mostly men aged 18-50, who have suffered long-term failures to launch. Their behavior won't inspire recruits to fight in a new civil war, but the point, for them, may be to adopt a higher, nobler sense of purpose, especially if it comes with the opportunity to bully others who won't fight back.

Bruce Hayden said...

“Compton has been a black suburb for decades but has recently seen a lot of Hispanic in-migration.”

Apparently the ethnic friction is getting fairly bad there. Hispanics apparently came out to support the deputies, while blacks were hoping for them to die. Read somewhere that there is a rumor going around there that Hispanic deputies were getting a special tattoo whenever they took out a Black.

The Dems (esp BLM) seem determined to start a race war, if it will help beat Trump. But they don’t seem to have understood that such a race war wasn’t going to be Black/White, but rather Black/Hispanic. And that could be catastrophic for them politically, if they continue to support the Blacks, while Trump and the Republicans do Hispanic outreach, esp in supporting law and order. Sure, Hispanics have their own gangs, which vie with Black gangs. But they are still dominated by intact extended families.

These abominations (assassination and ER protests) don't change the election dynamic in CA, it's too tilted to the Dems, but it will have an impact in NV and AZ if one of those Sheriffs is Hispanic.

Looks like LA Co. Sheriff uses Ford Police Interceptor suv's. The height on those is 69.4 in. Shooter appears to be almost as tall as the vehicle, so I'd guesstimate anywhere from about 5'6" to 5'8". Might be a woman, might be an older teen, but it's not a kid.

I Callahan said...

Democrats thought they would benefit from rioting and have lost control.

Assuming this is true, the question is why? On what planet with a yellow sun is it logical that riots where Democrats run everything would translate to Republicans being blamed for it? Are Democrat operatives that cocooned that they have no understanding of how people would think about that?

The ironic thing is this: if that were the case, there would be no reason for the media to bend backwards and not show the rioting.

Straw man alert!

I don't think rightists think these things, either. Many of us have questions, opinions, and concerns about the attempts to panic and stampede the public, whether it is global warming or Covid 19. The response in the West to Covid 19 is a disgrace to rational thought and historic experience. The global warming/climate change issue also resembles a global panic. This isn't the way to deal with complicated issues.

Bah!

This is a lame ass response by even your own standards. Basically it’s just “whataboutism”. You say something insane and justify it by saying Trump supporters believe and say insane things.

bagoh20 said...

Many of us passionately want Trump reelected, and this stuff is helping more than anything else that could be done to that end, but we also hate this violence, and desperately want it to stop. That's a difference between Trump supporters and Biden's, who when they thought it helped their goals, were just fine with it. They only seem upset that it hurts Biden. How else can you explain their attempts to cover it up, to hide it from the public who might demand it be stopped?

"Ending climate change requires the end of capitalism. Have we got the stomach for it?"

***********
I am biased about this issue owing to the fact I grew up, and have worked around, engineers and other science types. If they were ONLY motivated by money - the question above might be a good one. But they are motivated by *Solving Problems*. And the engineer/scientist that Solves the Problem may not get rich, but they sure as hell would get a lot of *respect* and accolades for doign so. IMHO that is motivation enough.

Paco Wové said...

"Ending climate change requires the end of capitalism. Have we got the stomach for it?"

So now The Guardian is all about ending climate change, eh? Well good luck with that.

(You could replace "climate change" with any other Guardianista bogeyman and the headline would be just as likely)

Tell us more about the hockey stick.

Tell us more about East Anglia University-CRU and how all those "scientists" lost their data. Like, all of it. But only after a couple years of lawsuits where the "scientists" fought like mad to NOT share their raw data and their data manipulation right up until that moment when the case was lost, then WHAMMO!!

No data available!

I know what you're thinking.

Did any of these guys end up working on the Mueller Hoax Team? The answer is no, but leftists do what leftists do regardless of circumstance.

William said...

So here's a question. How long will the media keep going with their attempt to skew the narrative and ignore the truth about what's going on with these "peaceful" protests?

Don't you think at some point one of these guys is going to say to his(her) colleagues, "Hey, we've jumped the shark on this one. Things are really getting out of control out there, and I'm not sure we can bring things back."

Living in their own little isolated, idealistic, and idyllic worlds, these guys have no idea that these are truly bad people who won't hesitate to do bad things whenever and wherever the opportunity arises. Their agenda is totally different than the media's agenda.

It looks like the cork is already out of the bottle (sorry for overplaying my metaphors here), and this mob rule thing could easily turn into major civil unrest, the likes of which none of us have ever seen (or imagined).

The media cannot—and will not—be able to hide from its role as a major enabler. That can't end well for the MSM as an institution per se or for the First Amendment.

If it keeps going like it has been going (November 3rd or not), it's not going to end well.

That is just disgusting behavior by the shooter and the "protesters" at the hospital. People that value human life don't behave that way. Those that do behave like this should be arrested and punished. They are forfeiting their freedom.

robother said...

Whatever the motive of the shooter (e.g.,revenge for the LASD's killing of a guy Thursday who opened fire on them), the BLM protestors' own footage of their attempted "visit" of the sheriff deputies and their taunts of officers in this highly charged situation should make BLM pariahs forever. The likely reality, that no one in the Democrat Party, the NBA or the NFL will condemn BLM or this "protest" (provocation) tells you all you really need to know.

Kevin said...

Is the shooter a child?

If so that accounts for the rabid need by the crowd to prevent the officers from surviving.

When Dems aren't taking orders from "experts", they're taking them from children.

I've seen on twitter the argument: duh stupid anti-science wingers, Dems have been in control for decades without these riots, Trump is the only thing different, ergo he is at fault.

And if you don't think Maxine Waters and the gangbangers who control her don't think this is high-level Real Politik, then you don't know progs.

cubanbob said...

I remember travelling in Brazil in the early eighties when the cops were killing violent criminals extrajudicially. At some point, this may happen here if this continues. I also doubt most people will care if these violent communists are found dead. Indeed, as long as the killing is confined to the violent commies and there supporters most people will either cheer or not care. In the movie Magnum Force the rogue cops were stopped by Dirty Harry. In real life, Inspector Callahan would probably turn a blind eye.

Night's comment at 2:06. If you haven't done this, and if you are skeptical about whether or not google is an unbaised search engine, try it. Duckduckgo: start with "does" and the very first suggested autofill is "does joe biden have dementia". But go to google.com and type "does" and then "does joe biden" and then "does joe biden have demen" and you still do not get a suggested autofill. I'll admit, I don't truly understand "algorithms" and how search engines work. But it does seem to me like duckduckgo is actually trying to lead me to articles about BIden's mental status, and google is actually trying to avoid leading me to such articles. (Once I have typed the full phrase into google, I do get to articles that discuss Joe BIden's mental status.)

It's revealing left wingers believe money corrupts people only in free economies. Apparently once people work for noble institutions fighting global warming monetary rewards cease to be corrupting. You can see the complete failure of their entire worldview in this tiny microcosm.

minnesota farm guy said...

@tim in Vermont I think you are absolutely correct that illegal immigration harms blacks first and foremost. Note the advancement of black employment and wages as Trump tried to choke off illegals. I also think it has a negative effect on legal immigrants and that they are very aware of it. If nothing else it impacts wage scales because there is always an excess supply of labor. I am convinced legal immigrants figured that out long ago.

I also think you are absolutely correct in blaming the "owning classes". Look at the America defeating behavior of the Wall Streeters who happily funded the offshoring of American industry. Same thing.

That suggest to me that the shooter is male, you don't generally see too many women with the saggy pants look.

9/13/20, 11:20 AM

The saggy pants look became passe quite a few years ago. Probably because while it helped thugs hide their weapons, the pants of said thugs had a way of falling down while they were running from the cops. So - not really a practical fashion for the criminally minded and those who admire the criminals.

bobby said...

These people are desperate to provoke some sort of anti-black backlash - because of the progress Trump has made in convincing large numbers of blacks that the Democrats should not be their natural choice. They seek to goad a reaction so that they can trumpet what the "white racists" are really like.

Hopefully, what they end up goading into life is an anti-Marxist backlash.

bobby said...

To those of you speaking about how illegal immigration has hurt blacks while using the changing demographics of Compton as your proof:

I grew up in Compton. Left there about 55 years ago. It was an all-Mexican town then. The blacks took it over. Drove the Mexicans out violently.

So don't make it sound like the Mexicans stole Compton from the blacks.

I'm Not Sure said...

"Does you think Hispanics give one shit about your racial grievances?"

Mentioned this before, but it bears repeating- the Hispanics (read: US citizens whose parents came from Mexico) I know don't give the least little shit about the slavery grievances blacks can't seem to let go of. You want to see what real racism is? Ask them about it (the Hispanics, not the blacks)- they won't be afraid to tell you what they think.

I yield to no one in my antipathy toward lefttardism. But I must come to Cookie’s defense in this instance.

@ 9:49 a.m.one must wonder if some of the culprits can be agents provocateurs...I am inclined to think there are self-righteous assholes AND undercover cops in play.

@ 1:02 p.m.
I’m not referring to shooters, as they are obviously just criminals, on both sides. I’m referring to rioting, vandalism, and shouting inflammatory things such as “We hope they die!”

Let's consider just inflammatory statements. Unfortunately for your claim, BLM has a rather extensive track record of saying inflammatory things about police. Consider one example:
2015:Black Lives Matter organizer stands by group's chant to cook police officers like 'pigs in a blanket' and 'fry 'em like bacon.'

Consider many examples: DuckDuckGo search: BLM chants kill police.

I'm Not Sure,

About the worst episode of racism I've seen personally (that really should be "episodes," as this happened every time I was there) was the treatment of the Hispanic staff of a Burger King by their Black customers. It was the reflexive cruelty of someone who feels weak kicking someone else yet weaker than himself. It was vile and incessant, and the staff (all of whom deserved hazard pay) meticulously ignored it.

This, btw, was in SF's Mission District, styled a "food desert" by activists despite the pho house, the Indian buffet, and the little Chinese place I walked past on the way to work every day -- not to mention the fantastically large Asian market on one side of 16th St., the whopping Latino grocery and carneceria on the other side -- oh, and the ginormous Safeway, all of which the Black kids had to walk past too, on their way to chew up some burgers and chew out some Hispanics. It was literally, among all these choices, the only place in that neighborhood I ever saw Black kids eat.

Jason said...

Michelle: I witnessed the same thing... prolonged, vile racist abuse from a black customer toward a Latina cashier at McDonalds.

Punchline: it was pretty near you, in Tigard, a suburb of Portland.

Portlandia progtards are constantly projecting their own crazed, vile racism and bigotry on normal people.
