One police officer was killed in Massachusetts and three others were wounded in Missouri in separate shootings Sunday, July 15, while police were attacked in Chicago over a police-involved shooting.
In Massachusetts, Weymouth police officer Michael Chesna, 42, and a bystander were killed Sunday after a suspect allegedly took the officer’s gun after a vehicle crash and a foot chase, authorities said. Officer Chesna was a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and he was married with children ages 4 and 9.
In Kansas City, Missouri, a male murder suspect shot three police officers on Sunday during a series of firefights that began at a motel and ended with the suspect’s death. The shooting erupted just after noon at a motel in the city where undercover and tactical officers were conducting an investigation into a robbery and murder.
In Chicago, crowds protested the fatal police-shooting of a black that was being arrested. A video released by the Chicago Police Department show the man resisting and appearing to reach for a gun in his waistband. It’s ironic how quickly protests are organized against police shootings in Chicago, versus the almost daily black-on-black shootings.
Thirty-two police officers have been killed in the line of duty to date in 2018. Democrats and the liberal Media have created an atmosphere of disrespect and anger toward the rule of laws and law enforcement officers, including local police and the Border Patrol. Citizens and voters should remember this in November 2018.
