copsbehindcarAs the Left steps up efforts to re-brand violent crime as ‘social justice,’ violent mob attacks increase

Cleveland police officers attempting to apprehend a criminal were shot at from behind as an anti-police mob formed around them.

The officers responded to a call that six armed men were waving guns at the scene of a police-involved shooting last year.

When the officers responded, a taunting mob formed around them.  When the officers attempted to question the men, one of them fired at the officers and ran.  As the police pursued him, several people in the mob began firing at the officers, attempting to shoot them in the back.

Liberals have publicly declared violent mob attacks to be a form of social justice.  Liberal message boards like Democratic Underground are filled with cheering taunts and calls for the execution of police officers each time a police officer is shot.

The mobs often call for the immediate capture and execution of police officers without a trial.  Commonly called lynch mobs, they were used by Democrats to maintain anti-black social order in the Old South.

Some observers blame the media for promoting a liberal narrative that mob violence is a legitimate political tool.

“Some liberal outlets [are] creating almost a lynch mob mentality around this, the Huffington Post today, screaming banner headline ‘Arrest Him.’ Now, the Huffington Post, nor you or I, knows exactly what happened,” said former Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz of their coverage of police-involved shootings.

“When you cross that line into becoming an advocate and to demanding that somebody be prosecuted before the facts are in, while the investigation is going on, you’re grandstanding, you’re trying to keep the story alive and I really think it’s troubling,” said Kurtz.

Media outlets have been caught publishing the home addresses of police officers who have fired at suspects, even after a left-wing protester ambushed and executed two New York City police officers.
In the same week the violent mob shot at Cleveland police, a mentally disturbed man attempted a terrorist shooting of Dallas police headquarters.

The dramatic rise in attacks on and killings of police officers comes as Democrats attempt to agitate their voting base ahead of the 2016 election.
