A few months ago, President Obama turned his back on American police officers when he blamed them for the violent race riots that have spread across the U.S., instead of the rioters themselves.
Since Obama did this, a plague of cop-killings have spread across the nation like wildfire. This week, yet another American police officer was brutally murdered, this time in Louisiana.
According to Daily Mail, Shreveport officer Thomas LaValley, 29, was killed at 9:14 pm last night during a routine call-out. LaValley was shot and killed by Grover D. Connor, 27, when he responded to a call of a suspicious person in a home. When the officer arrived, he found Connor threatening a family member with a gun before he opened fire.
Connor was already being hunted by police after shooting Darren Wilson, 45, on July 15. He managed to escape after killing LaValley, and he is now being hunted across two states. He was charged with first degree murder today.
“If he’s out there and he sees this, he is nothing to me but a coward” said Shreveport police chief Willie Shaw. “No matter what rock he crawls under, we will find him.”
Shaw added that LaValley’s death is particularly hard for him, as he personally recruited the young cop from his old job as a news cameraman. When LaValley told him he had applied to be a police officer years ago and was rejected, Shaw promised to hire him if he put himself through training.
Years later, LaValley emerged from training as an honors graduate.
“May God bless the family of the SPD officer that lost his life tonight serving our city,” Caddo Parish Constable’s Office wrote on their Facebook page. “Please keep this officer’s family in your prayers tonight as well as our law enforcement. He died protecting us.”
We pray that the thug who committed this heinous crime is caught so that he can get the punishment that he deserves!
