A plot by three African American young men to murder Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officers was artfully thwarted. This comes just days after the tragic deaths of several Dallas police officers who were ruthlessly murdered.
CNN initially reported on it saying,
“Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie on Tuesday said officers have arrested three people they believe were planning to kill police in the Louisiana city.
The threat emerged after the shooting death of Alton Sterling last week by Baton Rouge police, which has prompted weeklong protests by people concerned about police use of deadly force.
The “credible threat” was why law officers were quick to take aggressive action when they believed protesters were becoming unruly, Debadie and other top law enforcement officers told reporters Tuesday.”
Fortunately these are kids for the most part, not hardened criminals. Officers were likely able to catch them because of their amateurish behavior but their is no doubt more hardened criminals out their planning legitimate attacks against the police. Like the man who murdered officers in Dallas.
CNN also reported,
“Police said they learned of the plot when an officer responded to a burglary at Cash America Pawn early Saturday morning and arrested Antonio Thomas in the store, Debadie said.
Police said Thomas, 17, had one handgun and one airsoft BB gun, and told investigators he and three others stole firearms and were also seeking bullets to shoot police officers, the chief said.
Surveillance video showed the suspects using a ladder to climb to the roof to break into the building, police said.”
The mainstream media has largely not reported on this which isn’t surprising at all. Democrats haven’t commented on it either. Most likely because it doesn’t fit their agenda and narrative and actually proves it wrong. Yet after they inspired such hateful violence with their anti cop pandering to African Americans they don’t have the courage to stand behind their actions. Most likely because of how embarrassing it is for them. As it should be.
