Three police officers were shot and killed last week after a man pulled over for a routine traffic stop opened fire on them. The gunman, 26-year-old Lovelle Mixon, has an extensive criminal history and at the time of the shooting was in violation of parole for assault with a deadly weapon. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims, but not everyone feels the same way. An anti-police rally of about 40 people marched past the two sites where Mixon killed two police officers before police killed him. "He is the hero!" they shouted.
This is the kind of person they're holding up: a criminal who spent time in prison for identity theft and forgery, marijuana possession, and auto theft. Now, he is a cold-blooded killer. And he's the hero? Give me a friggin break.
I would post the video, but every time I copy and paste something, it doesn't copy it into my post text, it puts it down at the bottom of my screen and I have to type it in myself. Embed codes are too tedious for that. So here's the link for it.
