Trump calls for death penalty for cop killers


All of this anti-cop rhetoric from BLM and ANTIFA gets us one thing.

Violence towards cops.

The very people who serve to protect our communities.

By now you’ve seen the reports on the two LA sheriff’s deputies that were minding their own business when they were ambushed and shot by a gunman.

Joe Biden was silent on the matter, but Trump was swift to act.

He said that if the cops died, the shooter should be swiftly brought to justice and given the death penalty!

Here’s the story from Fox News:

The officers were being treated at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, Calif., the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported.

Trump first responded to the ambush-style shooting early Sunday morning.

“Animals that must be hit hard!” Trump wrote, referring to criminals who target law enforcement.

“If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!” Trump later wrote.

Both deputies were sworn in just over a year ago and the female deputy is the mother of a 6-year-old boy, officials said in a 10 p.m. news conference. Both of their families were rallying around them at the hospital.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva said while authorities don’t have a detailed suspect description, one of the deputies described the shooter as a “dark-skinned male.”

Villanueva said the shooting shows the dangers officers face in the streets and how situations can change in “the blink of an eye.”

Trump reiterated his stance on the gunman at his Las Vegas rally:

Two brave officers are now fighting for their lives because Democrats are allowing this hatred of cops to fester.

And President Trump is one of the few fighting it!

By the grace of God, both deputies have made it out of surgery and are expected to fully recover.

Here's more details on their miraculous survival from CNN:

The two Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies who were shot and critically injured Saturday night are out of surgery, according to a LASD spokesperson.

"It looks like they're going to be able to recover," Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Sunday afternoon.

"We'll see what the long-term impact is. We don't know that yet, but they survived the worst," Villanueva said during a community dialogue event.

The deputies, one male and one female, were "ambushed" as they sat in their vehicle, police said.

Villanueva said at a press conference Saturday night that the shooting in Compton was done "in a cowardly fashion" and that both deputies were being treated at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood.

Capt. Kent Wegener said the shooting happened at 7 p.m. Wegener said the suspect approached from behind the deputies' vehicle and walked along the passenger side. He acted as if he was going to walk past the car, raised a pistol and shot multiple times hitting both deputies, Wegener said.

Video of the incident, tweeted by the LASD, appears to show an individual in dark clothing walking up to the deputies' car, firing a gun into it and running away.

The two officers -- a 31-year-old mother and a 24-year-old man -- were taken to a local hospital and are "both still fighting for their lives," LASD said. Both deputies were sworn in 14 months ago, Villanueva said.

"This is just a somber reminder that this is a dangerous job, and actions and words have consequences. Our job does not get any easier because people do not like law enforcement," Villanueva said. "It pisses me off, it dismays me at the same time. There's no pretty way to say it."
