Democrat leadership in California – and even Joe Biden himself – distanced themselves from Black Lives Matter violence after two police officers were shot point-blank in the head in a surprise attack on Saturday night.
Striking a markedly different tone in the wake of the shooting of the two Los Angeles police officers, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Gavin Newsom condemned the wanton violence against the LAPD officers and called for the shooter to be brought to justice.
“What can you tell us about the deputies’ status and what goes through your mind when you hear about protesters blocking hospitals saying that we hope that deputy sheriffs die?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Garcetti.
“There’s no place in civilized society for anybody to draw an arm and to shoot our law enforcement officers that put their lives on the line,” Garcetti responded.
“And I won’t ever let a couple voices that not only are uncalled for, but it’s abhorrent to say something like that when we have two deputies in grave condition.”
Watch the video:
A 31 year-old mother and a 24 year-old are fighting for their lives because of this cowardly, horrific act.
The perpetrator must be quickly brought to justice.

This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice.
Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished.
Jill and I are keeping the deputies and their loved ones in our hearts and praying for a full recovery. https://t.co/330QfeIUGg

CNN’s Don Lemon says that the riots across the country have to stop because it might hurt the Democrats’ chances in November:
