Unfortunately, the most recent horror — two NYC police officers ambused and mrudered — is only just that, the most recent horror. This time though, the cops were killed rather than doing the killing. That has changed everything except the commentators.
Not surprisingly, the huge, old-line police departmkets (thhnk NY, Boston, Chicago) are always quickest to blame others with inflammatory language...while avoiding any responsibility themselves for deaths and troubles. In this case, protestors weren't supposed to speak out against civilian violent deaths at the hands of cops. Moreover, they should stop thtis FIrst Amendment stuff immediatey and forever! Coming under the steam roller also are the likes of NYC Mayor de Blasio, President Obama and, well, liberals in general.
I"ll kick around my take on the dreadful dynamics.
