L.A. Protesters Try to Break Into Hospital Where Two Officers Are in Critical Condition

Full title which didn't quite fit: "L.A. Protesters Try to Break Into Hospital Where Two Officers Are in Critical Condition After 'A Cowardly' Shooting"

https://www.newsweek.com/los-angeles-officers-critical-condition-shooting-1531552

Two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies are fighting for their lives after they were shot multiple times at point-blank range in an ambush, authorities said.

Crowds of protesters blocked the entrance to St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, where the wounded officers were in a critical condition, police said. Some protesters chanted "we hope they die," the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter. A witness told ABC7 that some had tried to break into the hospital's emergency room.

The shooting happened at around 7 p.m. Saturday at the Metro Blue Line station at Willowbrook Avenue and Compton Boulevard, not far from the Compton sheriff's station.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department shared video of the incident in a post on Twitter that shows a person open fire through the passenger-side window of the patrol car in Compton.

...in NYC several years ago. Someone sneaked up on the car and shot the officer inside. I believe he died on the scene.

What people are doubting is that there were demonstrators saying what the Sheriff claims they were saying. There's no video of that, just the word of the Sheriff.

The LA Mayor condemned the protesters.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) on Sunday condemned protesters who reportedly yelled "death to police" outside the hospital where two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies are being treated and in critical condition after being shot.

A small crowd, including some apparent demonstrators, gathered near the hospital in Lynwood where the deputies were transported. Witnesses say members in the group were chanting anti-law enforcement slogans and at one point tried to get inside the hospital.

77. Never said that there were not a "handful" of protesters outside, but...

Breitbart and several other right wing rags have tried to push the idea that protesters were violently trying to break in to the ER and were blocking ambulances from getting to the hospital, and actual real news outlets have proven that to be complete bullshit.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/compton-police-shooting-everything-know-162039234.html

Sheriff Villanueva called the handful of people heckling officers who guarded the outside of the hospital an “unlawful assembly of a group of protesters” who are "blocking the hospital emergency entrance and exits”. Journalists’ video from the scene does not appear to show evidence that the entrance and exits were blocked.


And Villanueva is a lying piece of shit. A small number of people heckling officers and one right wing plant shouting "we hope they die" is not even close to what the actual evidence shows and what was being distorted and fabricated by the likes of Breitbart earlier was nothing but another said attempt to discredit BLM.

9. Manhunt underway for shooter after 2 deputies ambushed in Los Angeles

Both were hospitalized in critical condition at St. Francis Medical Center. Villanueva's press conference at the hospital a few hours later drew more protests.

The sheriff's department tweeted: "To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling 'We hope they die' referring to 2 LA Sheriff's ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People's lives are at stake when ambulances can't get through."

Deputies issued a dispersal order for the "unlawful assembly" of the protesters for blocking the hospital's emergency entrance and exits, the sheriff's department said. Two people were arrested, including someone later determined to be a member of the media.

"A male adult protester refused to comply and cooperate," the department said in a statement. "During his arrest, a struggle ensued at which time a female adult ran towards the deputies, ignored repeated commands to stay back as they struggled with the male and interfered with the arrest."

The woman, later identified as a member of the press, did not identify herself as a member of the media and later said she did not have proper press credentials, the statement said.

Is distortion only going to affect the height of the shooter when the shooter is right next to the car, and not the height of the car? Unless the car is very tall?

He’s the height of the car as he approaches. It’s a Ford Explorer-roughly 5’9” -5’11” tall. The shooter rapidly gets smaller when he runs away where his height is distorted by the camera.

52. According to Ford, Explorers are 70 inches tall

Based on that, I estimate the shooter at 5'7". The average height for a male in the US is 5'9" so the gunman is a slightly-short normal (or as normal as someone who goes around shooting cops for no reason can be) male.

FOX and Trump campaign have attached the violence and murders of law enforcement officers by Rightwingers to the protests of the left. No way would real left protestors of police brutality be protesting outside the hospital calling for the deaths of officers. This is a campaign ploy.

Bush Sr had provocateurs burning flags in cities his campaign was heading to. Trump’s camp is paying for hits on officers.

Pence, in his convention speech deliberately linked the murders of law enforcement officers by Rightwing Boogaloo Bois to the left. This is how depraved their campaign is. They are monsters.

70. This is what I know as a Black person.

Black people don’t have a history of revenge shootings of police officers after a Black person is shot dead. Second, the person that shot the police officers sought them out and had a plan, typically when a Black person shoot a police officer, it is a hardened criminal trying to evade capture. Third, Black people don’t have a propensity to gloat about police officers being shot, because they know that the heat will first be turned on them as police forces search for the shooter.

I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if the shooter is found to be a white supremacists wearing black face, as ridiculous as that may sound to you, as a Black person, I saw things in that shooting video that make me suspicious.

Black people typically don’t try to smoke police officers to make a point about police racial injustices. Maybe a really hardened criminal would, but those types don’t seek out police officers to shoot them like the shooter did.

37. Videos

I hear "I hope they die" once. There is one man repeating something in the beginning that I cannot make out. The rest is ugly trash talk, but no real chanting.




Here are protesters NOT chanting #WeHopeTheyDie.
I heard one guy say "I hope they die." I think that's effed up BUT it's one guy & it sounds like the 'huge' group of protesters is 5 guys razzing the police AWAY form the entrance they supposedly blocked.





Here is another one. Same guys. I heard, "Suck my dick," and "I hope they die," but not a group chanting We hope they die. Again, I don't like this behavior AT ALL but where is the proof the sheriff stated stated they were chanting that?


The last tweet links to a long series of videos.

40. This is a provocateur not a protestor.

Check his bank accounts.

42. "Oink oink" "Fuck tha po-lice" "You next"

“Deez pigs” “I hope he die”

This is not make believe. This is despicable.

If you are with these people you are no friend of mine.

57. Nobody In Their Right Mind Supports Murder Or Attempted Murder Of Anybody

Presumably, everybody here is in their right mind so they don't need the admonition.

64. I'm trying to figure who the message is for

Because I've seen nobody here. Zero, supporting those people. The issue seems to be, who are these people? I don't believe these are "protesters". I believe these are provocateurs who camouflage as protesters to paint the righteous movement in a bad light. How many examples of this do we need before we stop jumping to believe everyone who claims to be a protester?

48. It's sad to see so many posters on DU being fooled

Breitbart has got shit. They and the pathetic LACS are pushing this about protesters trying to break into the ER and BLM are chanting "I hope they die..." The only evidence they have is one person, a GOP provocateur, yelling at a staged scene. Wow they are really getting desperate.

55. I agree that they're not "our" people.

But the universe of people who are not "ours" includes more than just right-wingers. There are people on the far left -- or who really just enjoy violence and discord without political context -- that we also have nothing to do with.

72. There is no case of an antifa type person ambushing police officers.

There are several cases of boogaloo bois ambushing police officers.

It is grossly disrespectful to us to suggest we would countenance murder or attempted murder of anybody. Some of the responses in this thread, not yours of course, depress me.

74. What is wrong with the sentiment "not ours"?

The poster seemed to be making the simple point that the protest at the hospital is out of character for BLM protest people.

I am even suspicious of the shooting itself. Not that it didn’t happen. It is just the circumstances don’t seem right from the perspective of the shooter.

76. Something is very off about this

Of course there's the possibility that a left winger did this but my bullshit detector is pinging. Is there any video or photographic evidence that this hospital protest actually happened as described in the article?

89. We're engaging in confirmation bias willfully here

The right does that, but when it comes to police, it seems plenty of us on the left can do it, too.
