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.”
On Tuesday morning, yet another American police officer was shot in the line of duty. According to Daily Mail, Pennsylvania State Trooper Patrick Casey was shot after a suspect fled a traffic stop and crashed into a school bus, causing a huge fire on a Philadelphia highway.
It all started around 9:30 am on Interstate 676, when Casey was at the traffic stop with two other officers for an expired registration. Suddenly, the suspect got back into his car and fled, eventually rear-ending a school bus and causing both vehicles to catch fire.
Thankfully, there were no children onboard the bus at the time. The driver was the only person on the bus, and he managed to escape without injury.
After the crash, the suspect got out of his vehicle and opened fire on the officers. Casey was reportedly hit while he was sitting in his cruiser, and he was able to return fire after being shot.
Eventually, the suspect was apprehended and Casey was rushed to the hospital, where he is still recovering. Mayor Michael Nutter spoke to him recently, and he described the trooper as “awake, alert and talking” and in “good spirits.”
Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement after the shooting:
“My thoughts and prayers are with the Pennsylvania State Trooper shot on Interstate 676 in the line of duty today. I am relieved to learn that the Trooper is in stable condition at a hospital in Philadelphia. Our men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line each day to protect us, and we owe them a debt of gratitude.”
The suspect has been identified as a 17 year-old boy, and police say he will likely be charged with attempted murder.
