A few months ago, Obama turned on American police officers when he blamed them for the violent race riots spreading throughout the country, instead of the race-baiting protesters themselves.
Since then, the number of attacks on U.S. cops has dramatically increased as thugs now feel that it is ok to attack police officers because “the president said they could.”
Late Sunday night, a Kentucky shot during a routine traffic stop. He died early this morning.
Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder, 31, was reportedly shot by Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, 25, after he pulled the young man over on Interstate 24 last night. A woman and two children, ages 2 and 5, were also in the suspect’s car at the time.
After talking to Ponder, Johnson-Shanks sped away in an attempt to flee the scene, and a chase ensued. According to KFVS 12, Ponder eventually crashed into the rear of Johnson-Shanks vehicle, at which point the thug leaned out the side window and shot the cop multiple times.
Johnson-Shanks then fled the scene on foot, leaving the woman and children behind. Police eventually caught him in a wooded area, and when he refused to lower his weapon, he was shot multiple times.
Johnson-Shanks was pronounced dead at 8:23 this morning.
Ponder was a veteran of the U.S. Navy who recently graduated from the KSP Training Academy. He started working for the Kentucky State Police in January.
“He was very proud to be a Kentucky State Police trooper,” KSP Trooper Jay Thomas said. “He was new and he was eager. He absolutely loved his job.”
Please pray for Officer Ponder and his family. SHARE if you think Obama should make a statement honoring the police officers who have been slain this year. The president has their blood on his hands!
