One of the men reportedly posted: “All lives can’t matter until black lives matter. Kill all white cops.”
“I know this is a new issue, but I want these people charged with crimes,” Craig said of the four men arrested. “I’ve directed my officers to prepare warrants for these four individuals, and we’ll see which venue is the best to pursue charges.”
The men named above and every officer or chief who is attempting to stifle criticism and dissent is responsible for the next batch of officers who meet a bloody end in a surprise attack. The actions of these officers make another attack so certain that they might as well save the insurgents the trouble and shoot a few of their own officers at roll call. It’s the same outcome. This might be hard to believe, but the proper response to widespread claims of a violent and overreaching police department is not to arrest people for speaking. It’s to pull back and re-evaluate. This isn’t a small group of malcontents who are causing problems. This is a large percentage of the population who see violence as their only option. They may have been on the fence about violence, the removal of their First Amendment rights by the thin blue line has shown them that discussion is no longer an option for them. Some squad of unthinking goons will come arrest them if they speak out, so why try?
Man Becomes Combative with Law Enforcement After Shooting Himself web posted July 19, 2016 JOHNSTON – A Johnston man shot himself in the neck., and after police responded to the scene to help, the man became combative with the officers. A report from the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office stated Thursday, July 14, a member of the man's family came to the Johnston Police station and reported that a family member of hers who suffers from mental issues, and was on drugs, was at her home acting wild, and had a firearm in his possession. The woman warned the officers she was afraid the man would harm himself, or others including law enforcement. The Edgefield County Sheriff's Office responded to the Johnston Police Department to provide assistance. The woman who made the complaint was in contact through text with a family member who was on scene of the incident. After a time of the family member not responding, the officers took off with intentions of placing the man in emergency protective custody. The law enforcement agencies surrounded the Johnston home. It has been reported that while the officers where on scene, the man was under the carport area and had his weapon exposed, and in his hands. While officers approached the scene, the man shot himself in the neck. The police rushed to the man's aide and performed life saving measures, as well as applying pressure to the wound; it was then that the man became combative. It was reported the man started to fight those who were trying to save his life, and threw an officer to the ground. To prevent him from causing anymore harm to himself, or anyone else, the man was restrained, and taken by ambulance to receive medical treatment, Children were playing near the scene, and a Church was holding a function nearby when the incident occurred. The man was bleeding heavily from the self inflicted gunshot wound. The officers who so selflessly responded to the mans aid were covered in his blood. These officers are now going through procedures after being exposed to so much blood. Although there is no official report, the man is said to be expected to live.

Should we be locking up everyone that writes "kill all Muslims?" Or does this logic only apply to police officers?
“You are dead. We are going to kill you.”
“The North Carolina shootings were just the beginning.”
“You are not Americans, don't fly our flag.”
A gunman who killed dozens of people in an Orlando gay club had complained of being taunted for being Muslim while working as a security guard at a court, newly released documents show.
You cannot commit a criminal threat if the threat is vague or unreasonable. The threat must be capable of making the people who hear it feel as if they might be hurt, and conclude that the threat is credible, real, and imminent. If, for example, you threaten to blow up the world unless your bartender doesn't bring your drink to you immediately, no reasonable person hearing it would believe the threat was real. On the other hand, if you walk into a store with a gun and threaten to shoot the clerk unless she gives you a refund, such a threat is credible and specific.
The doctor had parked his car and was walking to the Madrasah Islamiah mosque for the day's first prayers when he was ambushed about a block away from the mosque and shot twice at about 5:30 a.m. EST (0930 GMT), Siddiqi said. The three attackers fled on foot.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (Cair) released a statement saying a white truck stopped at the mosque at 4.15am on Saturday and that a man used racial slurs, saying: “You Muslims need to get back to your country.” The statement said the man beat the victim, causing head trauma and knocking out a tooth. The victim was not identified and it was not clear if he had been hospitalized.
