For the last few weeks, we have been reporting on the epidemic of cop murders that is quickly spreading across our nation. Ever since Obama publicly blamed the U.S. police for the violent riots that currently plague our country, there has been a dramatic increase in murders of American cops.
Now, Obama has even more blood on his hands.
This week, police officer in Houston, Texas was shot in the back during a “routine traffic stop.” Luckily, the officer did not sustain a life-threatening injury and is expected to make a full recovery, but his blood is still on our president’s hands.
According to Breitbart, traffic Enforcement Officer Terry Smith was completing a routine traffic stop at 6 pm on Tuesday when he heard a loud pop. It wasn’t until he felt pain in his lower back that he realized he had been shot. Smith is currently undergoing surgery at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.
Though Smith is expected to recover from his wounds, many other officers across the country have not been so lucky. A few weeks ago, Officer Kerrie Orozco of the Omaha Police Department was shot dead just hours before she was set to go on maternity leave. Her death was quickly followed by cop killings in cities like New Orleans.
Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland has commented that the incident appears to be random in nature, but it appears likely that it at least partly stemmed from the growing anti-police sentiment in the U.S. Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly has been vocal about blaming the American media for increasing this sentiment.
“Certain liberal news programs are hammering down on American police agencies over and over again,” O’Reilly said, adding that this is affecting the way young people behave around law enforcement officers.
With even the president against the police, it doesn’t look like this sentiment will be going away anytime soon. How many more police officers need to be shot or killed before change happens?
