As we reported yesterday, a sick thug shot & killed a Tacoma, WA police officer while using two children as human shields.
Officers were called to the home of Bruce Johnson after reports of domestic violence. Johnson’s wife told animal control officers who were working nearby that he had locked her out of the house and had taken her cell phone. The officers then called Tacoma police.
Officer Reginald “Jake” Gutierrez arrived at the home with his female partner. Gutierrez and his partner entered the home and proceeded upstairs with Gutierrez in the lead. As Gutierrez neared Johnson in an attempt to talk to him, Johnson opened fire, hitting Gutierrez several times.
Gutierrez died at a nearby hospital. The scumbag Johnson was later killed by a Tacoma SWAT team member.
While we mourn the loss of yet another officer, something peculiar came out of the situation.
An African American woman, Kristi Croskey, owned the home where the killing took place. She had been renting it to Johnson, and Croskey was inside during the standoff. She hid in a bathroom and was able to escape.
Croskey was interviewed by press after the incident. She praised Tacoma police, and said she didn’t want to hear about “Black Lives Matter” just because Johnson, a black man, was shot by police. She went on to say that “all lives matter.”
Here are her exact words:
“I don’t want to hear about Black Lives Matter, because all lives matter. I do not want to hear about the police officers being inhumane and shooting people unnecessarily or any of those things. I want to say that the Tacoma Police Department handled this matter with such professionalism despite their own being shot.”
Watch the interview.
Croskey realizes that police who have to shoot armed criminals (Who are black) who pose a danger to themselves & others aren’t racist just because they shoot a man (or woman) of color. Police are just doing their jobs, trying to stay alive, and keep the public safe.
Croskey should be applauded for her common sense approach to the incident. If only Black Lives Matter could grasp what she does.
Share this if you want more people to respect our officers like this woman does!
RIP, officer Gutierrez.
