Last week, we reported on a female police officer who was shot dead by a black thug just hours before she was set to go on maternity leave. On Sunday, yet another American cop was shot dead in his patrol car while on duty in New Orleans.
On Monday, a third white American cop was shot dead in less than a week. Officer Officer Gregg Benner, a cop from Rio Rancho, New Mexico, pulled over Andrew Romero and a female passenger at 8 p.m. that night as part of a routine traffic stop.
After finding that there was a warrant our for Romero’s arrest, Benner tried to arrest him but the 28 year-old thug fled. When the officer pulled him over once again, Romero fired three shots at him, hitting Benner in the upper and lower torso. The officer was rushed to University of New Mexico Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Officer Benner, who was 49 years-old, was an Air Force veteran who had only been with the Rio Rancho Police Department for four years. He is survived by his wife and five adult children.
“Officer Benner was a dedicated military veteran and law enforcement officer and his tragic death is deeply saddening to the tight-knit community of Rio Rancho,” said Rio Rancho Mayor Greggory Hull. “The city of Rio Rancho mourns his untimely death and I urge community members to keep Officer Benner’s family in their thoughts and prayers.”
Romero has been arrested and charged with the murder.
This comes just five days after Officer Kerrie Orozco was shot dead by a thug in Omaha, Nebraska. She was just hours away from going on maternity leave, as her newborn daughter was due to be released from the hospital the next day after spending months in the ICU.
On Sunday, Officer James Bennett Jr. was killed while sitting in his patrol car in New Orleans, Louisiana. His Killer is still at large.
Despite these killings, Obama has yet to speak out in support for American police in any way. Instead, he continues to side with the violent rioters and blame American cops for the chaos that is happening. Shame on you, Mr. President!
