In Brief:

The city manager of Lynwood, California responded to the ambush-style shooting of two police officers with a meme of Malcolm X that said, “Chickens Come Home to Roost.”

The Background:

The Daily Wire reports:

Jose Ometeotl, City Manager of Lynwood, also wrote in the post, which was deleted later, “The fact that someone randomly opened fire on deputies is to be expected in the society we live in today.”

Ometeotl wrote:

The shooting of anyone is a wholly unacceptable occurrence in society.  I do not condone the type of violence seen in the shooting of the deputies in Compton.  I will say that communities like Compton have been plagued by deputy gangs that inflict fear and violence in the community.  These deputies murdered, framed and stole from the community just because they could.  Good deputies never turned on bad deputies for fear of retaliation and when caught most of these bad deputies kept their jobs and continued on their criminal career.

The fact that someone randomly opened fire on deputies is to be expected in the society we live in today.  The political climate and leadership of Sheriff Villanueva has only sowed the seeds of anger and frustration in the community.  I pray for the deputies and their families while still demanding justice for Andres Guardato, Breona Taylor, Tamir Rice, Ahmaud Arbery …
