Cool. Left wing and right wing people murdering each other in the streets, now cops and civilians murdering each other in the streets.

Donald Trump's America.

There's going to be a news conference to update on the situation soon. Just reported both officers are stable. One is in surgery and the police have one suspect in custody.

Donald Trump’s not the one that vilifies police or calls violence toward police “cool”. I’d hold my breath waiting for a lefty to condemn this, but then I’d surely die.

I hope you like Americans murdering each other, because so long as Trump is in office this is going to get keep getting worse.

This history of the Middle East is the course we're on now.

Anything to not condemn someone who shot a cop (at least until you know what “side” they are) but it’s actually not Trump’s fault many lefties can’t disagree or oppose something without getting violent.

Which side in that video do you assume I'm rooting for? (Keep in mind there was something like 30 sides).

Our country is blowing up, and the person at the top is fanning the flames. Trump never creates the problem -- that requires too much work and creativity. But he's a master at taking existing problems and magnifying them by a thousand times. He's like a guy who enters a new apartment, sees a couple roaches, and feeds them until two roaches turns into a million roaches.

Unlike you, I’d never support violence toward the police no matter which side does it.
I'm happy to see that you don't support any side carrying out violence against the police.

Both sides are fanning the flames. You are a dear person, please don't insult my intelligence.

Sad, and uncalled for, I hope they pull through and the shooter is caught and pays for their crime.

That said, I do hope no one is surprised after todays lack of Justice.
I bet very few are surprised by the riots or by their lefty apologists.

I am not insulting your intelligence. I am telling you that every time Trump speaks out on race relations, protests and rioting, his words have the effect of fraying already frayed nerves and increasing tensions. The shooting of two police officers today is a link in a chain of escalating events, and this would have gotten worse all on its own. But mark my words, two things will happen:

1. Police will be extra special nervous and trigger happy, making a bad situation worse, and
2. Trump is going to say something tomorrow that is going to make the police extra special nervous and trigger happy...and really, really angry.

And this will escalate.

How can anyone condone violence? Please tell me why it is ever justified?

Yes, police and Trump will make the situation worse, not rioters, looters and arsonists. Trump has made them do those things.

Do you think what trump says tomorrow will have the effect of calming or escalating tensions?

It’s time to start locking up the news media executives. The first amendment does not protect speech intended to incite violence. This is the archetypal example of shouting fire in a theater when the left wing media amplifies lies about black Americans being unjustly killed by police. Lock em up
