Apparently two members of the biggest street gang in New York--the NYPD--were just shot while sitting in their patrol car, and both died. And apparently the motive was revenge for the killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. (For the record, I don't know exactly what happened in the Michael Brown case, but Eric Garner was flat out murdered.) Before the shooting, the person presumed to be the shooter posted some comments, including: “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” and “They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” and included hashtags mentioning Eric Garner and Michael Brown, making the motive kind of obvious. The shooter then apparently killed himself, though I wouldn't just assume that to be true.
Gunman executes 2 NYPD cops in Garner ‘revenge’
Personally, I would rather see the exact INDIVIDUALS who commit evil being the ones targeted for retribution. I don't generally approve of the pack mentality thing, where people lash out at members of a group (whether based on race, religion, nationality, or anything else), for what other members of that group have done. However, other members of the violent NYPD street gang were not merely accidentally born into that group; they CHOSE to be in it, and chose to CONTINUE to be in it, even after the group has an obvious, well-documented history of being violent fascist bastards.
A whole lot of state mercenaries ("law enforcers") are quite open about the fact that they expect to be able to get away with extortion, assault and murder, whenever they want, and so far that is what has happened. So to any hired thugs of politicians ("police"), I have to ask, what did you THINK was going to happen if you kept acting like jackbooted Nazis? Whether those two cops "deserved" to die, I don't know (though it wouldn't at all surprise me, since they were professional thugs and thieves). But given the mentality the badge-wearing dumbasses in this country, this sort of thing was inevitable, and will only increase. As I've said before, if you have a job that makes lots of people hate you, and makes some people want to kill you, you should probably consider the possibility that it's because YOU'RE THE BAD GUY.
