Organized anti-police violence is escalating in Democrat-run cities in Democrat-run states.
Polling is showing that the Biden campaign is bleeding out over the issue of BLM and Antifa rioting and the inability of the Biden campaign to come out strongly against civil unrest because its core supporters are either in the streets or whipping up hatred to get other people to riot.
Over the weekend, two LA County Sheriff’s deputies were critically wounded in what can only be described as an attempt at a targeted killing. (See Despicable Video From Los Angeles: BLM Blocks Entrances to Hospitals While Celebrating Shooting of Two LA Deputy Sheriffs and Two LA County Sheriff’s Deputies Ambushed While Sitting in Patrol Car; ‘Fighting for Their Lives’.)
This is the statement issued by the Biden campaign:
This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice.
Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished.
Jill and I are keeping the deputies and their loved ones in our hearts and praying for a full recovery. https://t.co/330QfeIUGg

What Biden attempted to do in the more extensive statement is conflate a cold-blooded attempt to execute two police officers who were sitting in their cruiser with a sheriff’s deputy in Henderson County, NC, getting killed while intervening in a felony. The reason for that is simple, the man who killed Hendrix was white, the Compton shooter, not so much. Note also that the Biden campaign did not give a fat rat’s ass about Deputy Hendrix’s shooting until it was convenient to package it with another police shooting.
This attack was a logical and foreseeable consequence of the statements and actions and rhetoric of Democrat-elected officials across the nation stoking hatred of police and coddling the people who carry out attacks on police. And those attacks and the anti-police violence is a feature of the Biden campaign. Several Biden staffers have donated money to the fund that bails out violent rioters, particularly those who have assaulted police officers in Portland and Seattle. Kamala Harris has encouraged people to donate to that fund.
This lame, tepid, bloodless statement is simply an attempt by the Biden campaign at damage control. They issued it because they had to, not because they wanted to or even because they particularly objected to the Compton shootings.
