Police Officer Isolated On White BackgroundFelon attempts to beat Birmingham police officer to death, who did not defend himself out of fear of being prosecuted

“A police officer in Birmingham, Ala., was beaten unconscious by a suspect during a traffic stop last week because the officer did not want to be pilloried in the media as a racist for using force against a black man,” National Review reports.

NR explains what happened next:

Last Friday, a Birmingham plainclothes detective pulled over a car being driven erratically. The officer, who has chosen to remain anonymous to protect his family, told the driver to stay in the car while he called for backup. Instead, according to CNN, the driver got out and became belligerent, angrily and repeatedly asking why he’d been stopped. The driver, a 34-year-old convicted felon, allegedly grabbed the detective’s gun and pistol-whipped him with it until the detective lost consciousness. The felon, Janard Cunningham, reportedly fled the scene but was later apprehended. His record includes convictions for robbery and assault, among other crimes, and an attempted-murder charge, according to ABC 3340 and WVTM 13.

“Cunningham previously pleaded guilty to an assault charge in 2006 and was also charged with attempted murder in 2004 before that case was dismissed, ABC 3340 reported,” according to the Daily Mail. “He also has past convictions for robbery and unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle, according to WVTM 13.”

The video of the beating was posted to the Internet…

…where liberals celebrated the violent crime.

“pistol pimped his face,” one person gloated on Twitter, posted over a photo of the officer bleeding.

“Pistol whipped his ass to sleep,” said another cheering liberal, followed by a video of the officer bleeding on the pavement with the hashtag #FckDaPolice

“A lot of officers are being too cautious because of what’s going on in the media,” the officer told CNN. “I hesitated because I didn’t want to be in the media like I am right now.”

He did not give his name, out of fear of being targeted by social justice warriors.

One liberal protester hunted down and assassinated two police officers last year, vowing to “put wings on pigs” in retaliation for the death of Michael Brown by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer after Brown attacked him and attempted to steal his gun.

Liberals have used the Brown incident as an excuse to riot and burn cities, and even shoot and even kill police officers.
