On Saturday, after a gunman ambushed and shot two police officers in their squad car, Black Lives Matter protesters blocked the entrance and exit to the responding hospital’s emergency room. Protesters also wished death on the officers.
As of this writing, the gunman is still at large, and the two officers are now out of surgery.
Shocking video of the shooting and the subsequent protests went viral over the weekend.
Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Hospital, Scream “I Hope They F****** Die”
Video from LA paints a shocking picture. The video of the actual shooting is incredibly disturbing. In it, a gunman casually walks up to a parked squad car and begins firing.
What happened after may be even worse, if that is possible. “Protesters,” presumably Black Lives Matter protesters, blocked the entrance and exit to the hospital emergency room, and wished death on the officers who were struggling for their lives.
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. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.

Trump Responds: Death Penalty For Killing Police Officers
On Sunday at a rally in Nevada, President Donald Trump showed his support for the two Los Angeles deputies that were shot.
“As we begin tonight, our thoughts are with the two sheriff’s deputies in Los Angeles who are fighting for their lives when a vicious criminal walked up to their vehicle and shot them at point-blank range,” Trump said at a rally in Henderson, Nevada.

“We send our love and our support to their families, and we pray to God for their recovery,” the President said.
Trump cast blame on 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for not speaking out against the left’s campaign against law enforcement, recalling that the former vice president failed to condemn violence against police, including a Las Vegas officer who was shot in June and left paralyzed.
“For the entire summer Joe Biden was silent as left-wing mobs assaulted police officers,” Trump said.
“When Biden’s far-left supporters set fire to police cars and precinct stations, courthouses, Joe Biden called them, ‘peaceful protesters,” Trump added.

Trump also mocked Biden for saying little to nothing about the left-wing violence and riots during the Democratic National Convention, and only condemning them afterwards, when Biden’s polls decreased.
“In the Republican Party, we know that police officers are not villains but heroes that risk their lives to keep us safe,” the President said.
Trump called the person who shot the LA officers an “animal” and suggested giving the death penalty to those target who police officers for death.
This past week, two black police chiefs resigned under pressure. What has become hard not to notice is that these black police officers are getting no support from prominent Democrats—not Joe Biden, not Kamala Harris, not anyone but Donald Trump.https://t.co/wxva2xK4LR

“Biden wants to appease domestic terrorists, and my plan is to arrest domestic terrorists,” he said. “And we also believe that if you murder a police officer, you should receive the death penalty.”
Trump brought up the fact that Biden wants to eliminate the death penalty.
“Joe Biden opposes the death penalty even for these cop killers, predators that murder children. He opposes the death penalty for the Boston bomber,” Trump said.
