I'm not in a debating mood, thedirtypirate. I am disgusted and angry. I am furious that another officer was shot in the back yesterday by a black man and multiple white people and a police officer shot and one woman murdered by a black man on Thursday.

A Ballwin police officer was in critical condition after he was shot in the neck during a traffic stop late Friday morning, police said.

The officer had stopped the car for speeding on northbound New Ballwin Road about 11 a.m., police said. As the officer went back to his car, the driver got out, “advanced quickly” and fired three shots at the officer, police said.

Said St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar: “Make no mistake, we believe that Ballwin officer was ambushed.”

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch agreed.

“It was clearly an ambush, an attack,” he said. “There was no confrontation, no argument, no nothing.”

Or the shootings of white citizens and a police officer on Thursday by a black man.


BRISTOL, Tenn. - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has released the name of the suspect behind Thursday morning's random shooting in Bristol, TN that claimed the life of an area newspaper carrier and injured three others, including a local police officer.

The TBI says 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott was armed with at least two weapons, an automatic-style rifle, a pistol and a large amount of ammunition, reports CBS statation WJHL in Tennessee.

According to the TBI, the victims were:


Jennifer Rooney ( A Bristol Herald Courier newspaper carrier) : Deceased after being shot driving in her vehicle on Volunteer Parkway.

Deborah Watts: In serious, but stable, condition at Bristol Regional Medical Center after being shot while working at the Days Inn.

David Whitman Davis: Received minor injuries at the scene after being injured by flying glass resulting from the gunfire.


Officer Matthew Cousins: Sustained a superficial wound to the leg. Was subsequently treated and released from BRMC.

Preliminary findings indicate Scott may have targeted [white] people and officers after being troubled by recent events involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country.

Where is the press coverage?

I'm not in a debating mood. No, ma'am.

I love it how you dropped the word White before Americans as if it is totally irrelevant and the sentence retains its meaning without it

From the article (for want of a better word)..

Quote:
Clinton suggested that people who disagree with her agenda are racists. “There is so much more to be done… we can’t be engaging in hateful rhetoric or incitement of violence, we need to be bringing people together … we need more love and kindness.”
Yeah, I got that out of that horrible statement too.

/sarcasm

It conveniently left out the part of the interview where she said more needs to be done to protect and respect the police, who go into danger where others won't.

I'm paraphrasing, but watch the whole effing thing if you are going to draw conclusions.

All he said is that white people don't understand what it's like to be black people. A ridiculous statement, but not a provocative one that suggests that white people are to blame for all the killings of black people.
