1. "Trump support kills cops" needs to go virile

This will change the M$M coverage with a bit of help from facebook and twitter

22. Autocorrect is a plague on the universe.

Had I been using it, I probably would have written about a plaque on the universe. But I definitely agree that this is one of many dangers of Trump.

7. Double standard

Not that Trump should answer for every wacko supporter of his, but remember the huge deal they made of the fire bombing of the GOP VA campaign head quarters?

Trump needs to address this. Unfortunately, his rhetoric encourages this.

24. It is a good point.. or any pundit?

This idiot was pissed at the cops who made him take his Confederate flag down so he goes out to murder cops randomly.

So sad. Thank you, sarae

17. His actions are a sad and predictable outcome of "The Trump Effect".

When ignorant, bigoted folks act out, claiming unfair treatment after hearing Trump's drum beat of intolerance and fascism.

21. Fanatics believe they have the right to commit violence "in the name of the cause."

Trump is giving people a kind of emotional refuge for horrible acts, making them seem sacred within the context of his truly mad cult.

26. And I assume he was killed by the police and not apprehended?

 

Wait, was he or is he white?

That will probably answer my question for me.

So what color were recent cop killers Jamaal Lewis, John Felix and Royheem Deeds, all captured without being shot on sight?

It is possible to acknowledge that cops are more likely to shoot minorities without pretending all minority suspects are shot and no white ones are.

33. It's also possible to acknowledge statistical probabilities..

"It is possible to acknowledge that cops are more likely to shoot..."
It's also possible to acknowledge statistical probabilities... even the one which may not fit your narrative.

"pretending all minority suspects are shot and no white ones are..."
Your inference someone is pretending as such is bemusing. Inaccurate of course, but very bemusing.

34. I wonder if his plan was to get away without being ID'd and be a 'witness' who would blame it on BLM

With his previous actions, it's a possibility.

This sack of waste had to murder two police officers whatever terrorist agenda he had planned, though, so whatever the motive, he'll spend the rest of his days behind bars.

CNN and Fox would be mentioning it all night.
