Editorial: Enemies and Cowards by Sam Hutch

The perception that political enemies are human, too, sharing our common human hopes and uncertainties, conquests and weaknesses, is often deployed in a way to downplay political division and enmity. In reality, though, the fact that our enemies are human, too, is what makes them morally accountable. If they were inhuman monsters who thrived on death and suffering, then we would expect nothing of them but hostility. The fact that they share our common humanity, that they have experienced love and pain and disappointment and satisfaction just like us, is what makes it so intolerable that they would, for instance, vote to tear down the  people’s dreams for a better quality of life brought to them by the people sworn to protect them.  With no plausible narrative for why such a thing is beneficial as public policy or even as an act of political expediency other than to cover up the actions of a few bad seeds planted within the system and a mayor who is a coward. 

 The fact that Lucifer would get up off his pedestal to participate in this cruel farce that played out in this town does not make him a hero, it makes him what he is the Devil. Without a valid excuse to do so but to keep his grasp on this town located in the so called Bible belt where religion is based on hypocrisy and there is only one skin tone that matters.  Indeed, Lucifer had a perfectly valid excuse to destroy the great work that was being created.  You see misery enjoys the company and this town has been engulfed by misery. Lucifer’s need for this town seat altogether was to keep his grasp on the mess of this ignorant town. What he chose to do was completely gratuitous and cruel, which is comprehensible only as an attempt to bask in the favor of a bunch of simple minded corrupt sheepdog’s adoration one last time. This shows that Lucifer is no God, as his motivation for adoration is human, and that’s what makes it morally blameworthy.  He is a human creature who fed on the praise and threats of none powerful association of false prophets that promised not to revile his secret of cheating on his wife and doing drugs all while being escorted by those wolves in Sheepdog clothing.  Lucifer could write it off as a survival instinct; however, he and his cohort lost their election.

Since he is a human being with human moral agency, we are entitled to our equally human moral judgment. And in my judgment, which is my right as a human being, Mayor EN is an evil but cowardly man and anyone who helped him in his cover up is just as unfortunate to end up in his current medical condition.  The fact that those involved are so blinded by their dislike for the brown sheepdog that was sent to elevate their success is just further proof of how ignorant these fallen angels truly are.   To distract from all the good that was being created to unite a community that had fallen on rough times due to the roots of the town that can be traced back to a Lead Sheepdog who supported and advocated for the dislike of those of a different skin tone.  Yet those Fallen Sheepdogs have the nerve to say that they are offended when they are called racist.  Not all the Sheepdogs there are racist but about 90% of them and the fact is they are fools at best and are fellow villains at worst.

Yes, our enemies are human. That’s what makes them enemies. That’s why their actions are unacceptable — because they are just like us. If we can make the morally right choice, so can they. And they have not.  This is just a sample of the writings of the upcoming soon to be released best seller titled “The Unmasking”.   “Remember your enemies are human too”,” An und für sich (x)

Police officer shot 4 times is recovering; shooter killed

Police officer shot 4 times is recovering; shooter killed, 
story by Ricardo Munoz.

A man with a history of confrontations with police shot an officer four times while he was responding to a domestic violence call before another officer returned fire and killed him, investigators said.
The veteran Uniontown officer who was injured, Sgt. David White, underwent surgery and was in stable condition Monday, but he faces more procedures and a long road ahead, police said.

The shooting happened Sunday night after Ryan Probst's sister called 911 to report a domestic disturbance at a home in Uniontown, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) southeast of Akron.
Probst was alone in the house when officers arrived and began shooting, hitting White four times, Stark County Sheriff George Maier said. Probst was killed when another officer returned fire, he said. It all happened very quickly, he said.

Officers had dealt with Probst before Sunday night, the sheriff said. Probst had a history of confrontations with police, and officers had removed guns from the home in the past, the sheriff said.
Probst was convicted of aggravated menacing in 2014, and he was charged with aggravated menacing in 2012, but that was reduced to disorderly conduct, court records show.

A neighbor, Ron McMorrow, said the 28-year-old Probst was raised by his grandparents and alternated living at his grandparents' home and with his wife and their 3-year-old daughter in a house across the street.

"I hate to see something like that happen. Now she's going to be without a husband, the kid isn't going to have a father," McMorrow said. "It's terrible."

Police Chief Harold Britt said White has spent 25 years in law enforcement and started working with the department in 2002.

Houston police officers narrowly avoid gunfire, arrest two By Margaret Kadifa

Houston police officers narrowly avoid gunfire, arrest two

Two people are behind bars after shots were fired early Monday at an unmarked Houston police car in the Greater Third Ward.

In mid-morning, a SWAT team descended on a home in the 2100 block of Sampson, off the Gulf Freeway, from which at least one person is believed to have fired at the unmarked car.
No one was inside the home, but a member of the SWAT team spotted bullet casings on the porch of the house. HPD officers will continue to gather evidence throughout the morning, the member said.
The gunfire started about 3 a.m., said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo.

An officer inside of the unmarked car, which belonged to the Houston Police Department's newly formed Criminal Apprehension Team, was conducting surveillance in the neighborhood, Acevedo said.

Bullets narrowly missed a police officer. One hit the driver's seat, inches from where the officer sat.
The entire left side of the car was riddled with bullet holes, Acevedo said.

At least two people who were inside the house then tried to flee south on the Gulf Freeway. Several other patrol units joined the chase. Shortly after, officers arrested both people, Acevedo said.
None of the officers involved in the arrest -- including the officer who was targeted -- returned fire, which Acevedo called "an illustration of the professionalism of our men and women."

"This morning, you saw the courage of the men and women of the Houston Police Department," he said.

Police did not release the suspects' names immediately.

Acevedo created the Criminal Apprehension Team last spring in an effort to curtail crime in the city. The investigative unit works undercover in high crime areas throughout Houston, said Department spokesman Victor Senties.

Godofredo Vasquez contributed to this report.

‘Assassinated’: NYPD officer shot and killed while sitting in a police vehicle, officials say

 Chief Jesus Eddie Campa and his staff send prayers and condolences to the family of Officer Miosotis Familia.  Chief Jesus Campa stated "This has gotten out of control.  The respect we once had for police is gone.  We need to shift our priorities to rebuild respect for our law enforcement community."

A New York City police officer was shot and killed in anunprovoked attackas she was sitting inside a police vehicle early Wednesday morning, authorities said.
Officer Miosotis Familia was sitting inside a New York Police Department command vehicle with her partner when she was shot and killed, police said. The deadly shooting — which the city’s police commissioner labeled an assassination — happened at 12:30 a.m. in the Bronx.

Familia, a 12-year NYPD veteran, was initially reported in extremely critical condition. But Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill announced on Twitter several hours later that Familia had died.

“Based on what we know right now, this was an unprovoked attack against police officers who work to keep this great city safe,” O’Neill said at a news conference early Wednesday. Familia’s partner was not injured in the attack.
Familia was wrapping up her shift when the gunman fired a shot through the window and struck her in the head, the Associated Press reported.
Police said Familia’s partner immediately called for help.
Officers confronted the suspected gunman about a block away from the scene of the shooting. The suspect was shot and killed after he drew a silver revolver, police said. He was identified by the authorities as 34-year-old Alexander Bonds.
At least 65 law enforcement officers had been killed in the United States through July 4, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a nonprofit group that monitors line-of-duty deaths — a 25 percent increase over the same period last year.

San Antonio to honor Officer Miguel Moreno who died Friday.

The police officer was shot Thursday afternoon after he and his partner approached two men and one immediately pulled out a handgun and opened fire.
Moreno’s partner, Officer Julio Cavazos, who was also shot, underwent surgery and is expected to survive.

A San Antonio police department spokesman identified 34-year-old Andrew Bice as the man who shot both officers before being killed in the shootout.

The other man the officers approached did not know that his companion was going to pull out a weapon and is cooperating with authorities.

After being shot, Moreno was dragged out of the line of fire by Cavazos, Fox 29 San Antonio reported. 
Cavazos was shot in the chin but still managed to return fire, striking the assailant in the buttocks, the station reported.

Doctors found a bullet fragment lodged in his lung, according to the station. The bullet first struck his bullet-proof vest, the station reported.

The gunman was later found dead with a bullet wound to the head. Police aren't sure if the bullet came from his own gun in an apparent suicide, or from an officer's.
The shooting happened in the vicinity of San Antonio's downtown, near San Antonio College.

Moreno and his partner had been San Antonio cops for nine years.
