A group of Black Lives Matter protesters swarmed St. Francis hospital where the injured LA deputies were transported for emergency treatment. The two officers sustained severe injuries after an unknown assailant ambushed them at a Metro Station in Compton, LA. The mob blocked the entries and exits of the hospital while shouting profanities at the police officers present.
"Happening now we are at the St. Francis where two pigs have been brought to be repaired after being shot in the head All Right," one protester said on Facebook.
Other protesters shouted "death to the police," and "you are next," adding that they will “die one by one."
"To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling 'We hope they die' referring to 2 LA Sheriff's ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL,” LASD tweeted. “People's lives are at stake when ambulances can't get through," the department tweeted.
The incident took place as the injured officers were still in critical condition and battling for their lives. LASD asked the public to keep them in their “thoughts and prayers.”
President Trump called for a quick arrest and sentencing to death of the armed criminal. Joe Biden also asked for the capture of the attacker who remains at large. However, Biden also took the opportunity to push for the “assault weapons” ban, barely a day after the shooting incident took place.
“Weapons of war have no place in our communities. We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” Biden tweeted.
The Democratic presidential candidate hopes to create a connection between “assault weapons” and the shooting incident. This is despite California having an “assault weapons” ban and the criminal using a pistol with just a few bullets.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
