A deputy sheriff in California was ambushed last night and shot in the head. Looks like he will survive.

Haven't heard anything on any news outlets?

www.google.com...

Feels like they are going full steam with their one sided position.
Movies are being pulled, cop shows, cop toys.

If things continue this way. Democrats will be crying for police.

There was a kangaroo ran over the other day by a drink driver, a bunch of koalas were shot and emus were eaten. Soon democrats will demand chicken and corn soup made in a can.

Damn, Dude.

Seriously?

Easy explanation. It doesn't generate clicks and viewership for ad revenue. It has to incite people and keep them engaged and interested.

Says “haven’t heard anything on the news outlets” and then links to a news piece about it? C’mon man, try harder.

I’m on the opposite side of the country and read about it before checking ats.

Yeah, I was going to point out the irony ... but realized it wouldn't matter to the faithful.

A hundred citations in Google news from about the time this post was made.

PS: Shooter in custody, apparently killed a homeless man as well. Solo threat.

this is making headlines everywhere.

this needs to stop. the police need to regain control. angry mob mentality is detrimental.

this has nothing to do with racism.

it's mentalists going around killing cops that are helping trivializing actual wrong doings by the police by doing what we want the police to stop doing.

Shooter acted alone. Murdered a homeless man as well. He's a nutjob, not part of a mob.

C'mon, I know you're better than that. I get what you're saying but it's a bit callous.

I’ve been around ATS long enough to be able to observe the cycle with BLM.

Black person gets killed by a cop. BLM resurfaces. Media goes nuts with it. ATS picks it up.

ATS sees a bunch of posts about white people being killed and/or cops being killed asking why the media isn’t all over those too.

Kerfuffle with BLM quiets down. ATS stops posting about cops being killed and white people being killed unless it’s a sensational story.....kinda like the much maligned media does.

Wash, rinse, repeat. Some of y’all need to stop acting like you give any more of a # about cops being killed or white folks being killed than you give about black people being killed. It’s pretty obvious you only care now because somebody else cares about a black man being murdered by a cop.

I’m pretty sure this cycle of murder is different.
A number of factors maybe.

Could be the coming out of the Covid slumber, coupled with a very sad and graphic video of the murder.

A president who had an empathyectomy at birth.
I think this will lead to something when the smoke is cleared.

The same morons who wanted you to stay home for months even if it meant going bankrupt and losing your business in case it could save just one life now don't give a flying crap about people being murdered.

Normal liberal USA.

So if he acted alone, should we not dig into how he was influenced by the current anti-cop sentiment being pushed hard by the media and political figures? The same people pushing this snip seem very willing to blame anything they can on Trump's or Republican 'incitement'.
Part of the OPS point is that there is a clear double standard here when assessing people's motivations for criminal acts - at least that is the way I read it. Seems valid to me.
It would be much better if views were consistent.
Either politicians and the media carry some of the blame for inciting people to act or they don't. Picking and choosing where to lay blame is part of what is dividing people. Constant finger-pointing.
