This is truly disgusting. Two Black Lives Matter supporters rob a store in Clarksdale, Mississippi, and then shoot a pursuing cop in the face. The officer, Cpl. Derrick Couch, is in critical condition. He has lost an eye, and a bullet is lodged in his brain. He is being kept alive by a ventilator. Cpl. Couch is married and has two children. He’s in his 30s.
The question I want to ask is, Where is Black Lives Matter??? Will there be protests? Will there be riots? Will Sharpton speak??? I think NOT.
The reason I ask is because, the officer shot, is also BLACK. BLACK Lives Matter will not protest. Why? Because they hate cops, even those of their own race. This is how much “Black Lives Matter” supporters believe “black lives matter.” They will support the criminal, over the black cop, who is just trying to do his job, which is keeping civilians safe. Cpl. Couch was doing his job, keeping us SAFE.
Absolutely disgusting. Please pray for Cpl. Couch. One of the good guys, keeping our neighborhoods safe from criminal scum. May God be with him, and may he be able to return to his family. Blue Lives Matter… no Matter their Race!
CBS News reported on the story:
CLARKSDALE, Miss. — A man believed to have shot a northwest Mississippi police officer point-blank in the face and a man believed to have joined him in an earlier robbery were being questioned Sunday by police, Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett said.
Luckett says the first man’s father brought him to the police station Sunday afternoon. Officers with a search warrant found “telling evidence” at the family’s home earlier Sunday, he said.
CBS affiliate WREG-TV reported that police released a video of two possible suspects, including one with a noticeable limp.

Both suspects are now in custody as of Sunday afternoon, WREG reported.
The officer, Cpl. Derrick Couch, was in critical condition at the area’s top trauma center, Regional One Health in Memphis, Tennessee, nursing supervisor Vivian Crawford said Sunday.
Couch is on a ventilator, has lost one eye, and the bullet remains lodged in his brain, Luckett said.
He said the shooting occurred about four blocks from a convenience store that two men in masks had just robbed Saturday night. The store and City Hall are at opposite ends of the same block, facing different directions, Luckett said.
He said video from a nearby law office shows Crouch getting out of his car, apparently to question the man.
“I’ve seen the video. It’s harrowing,” he said. “As soon as the officer approached him, he just swung around and, bam!”
Before the shooting itself, the mayor said, the video shows Couch’s patrol car approaching two men, one of whom runs.
“I’m not sure if Officer Crouch saw him run or not,” Luckett said. “Then you see the officer’s lights turn and illuminate the second guy, who’s walking. He walks with a noticeable limp, which is telling” because a video of a robbery last month at the same store, the Corner Grocery, shows a man with a limp.
Couch and both suspects are African-American, he said.
He said Couch is a veteran officer in his mid-30s, and worked for the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office before coming to Clarksdale, where he was a narcotics officer until recently. He is married and has one or two children; other relatives live in Southaven, the mayor said.
“This is not a homicide yet. It would be our first this year if it turns into one,” he said. “I can’t remember an officer in Clarksdale shot by a suspect.”
