Two police officers in Mississippi were shot and killed over the weekend. Nothing can justify the senseless murders of police officers just as nothing can justify when a police officer murders a civilian. No matter what the gripe there is no call for the unjustified shooting of a police officer (yes I think there are be times when it is justified. You always have the right to self-defense).
A worker at Subway was happy about the murder of the officers and posted to social media; “2 police officers was [sic] shot in hattiesburg [sic] tonight.! [sic]”. She then posted -GOT EM’ with a picture of three handguns.
The moron also posted her picture with her work hat on. Her message got the attention of a lot of people who made it known to Subway that they were unhappy. The worker was terminated from her position at the establishment.
She also had this to say:
We can turn this b*tch into Baltimore real quick. Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, f**k them…NO MERCY [redactions are mine]
I am glad she believes in no mercy because that is what her employer showed, no mercy. She lost her job and that was a good decision for the company since she, by wearing her company hat in the photo, brought discredit upon it.
The police have made several arrests in the case and two of them are felons who, by law, are not allowed to possess firearms. As an aside, how did felons get guns if gun control laws work?
Everyone except for liberals knows the answer to that…
It is good that the people who allegedly murdered the officers are in custody and they will get their day in court. Mississippi has the death penalty so if these guys are found guilty I hope they get that punishment.
But I do wonder about something. The Subway employee said cops take innocent lives away as justification for the murders of these officers and she said there should be no mercy. So given that, how would she feel if the police adopted the same mindset and decided to go hunting people because some bad ones murder cops?
How would she feel if she were looking down the barrel of a police officer’s firearm proclaiming her innocence and being told, no mercy?
It won’t come to that and while there are problems with an increasingly militarized police force most of the officers are not bad people hell bent on harming others.
The reality that cops (and most other people) do not go on vendettas randomly shooting people with whom they have contact contrasts greatly with the attitude of the Subway employee which, unfortunately, is all too common.
These differences in attitudes separate the civil part of society from those who have no respect for others and take no responsibility for their lives.
Never surrender, never submit.
