Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel Shot to Death During Traffic Stop … DOUBLE STANDARD: Where’s the MSM Outrage?
WHERE’S THE WALL TO WALL MSM COVERAGE, WHERE’S AL SHARTTON, WHERE’S JESSE JACKSON? WHERE IS THE CALL FROM BARACK OBAMA TO HIS FAMILY?
64 year old Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel was shot multiple times during a traffic stop on Saturday and later died of his wounds at University Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Police Chief Pimentel was shot by 24 year old Joshua Manuel Lopez, who had an active misdemeanor warrant for graffiti at the time he was pulled over. AND YOU WONDER WHY POLICE OFFICERS REACT THE WAY THEY DO WHEN THEY PULL SOME ONE OVER OR ARE CONFRONTED? Joshua Manuel Lopez had only a misdemeanor warrant for graffiti but yet was armed with a gun and shot and killed a police officer. Joshua Manuel Lopez was arrested and taken into custody. Lopez faces capital murder charges and is being held in the Bexar County Adult Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
Take a good look America as to the dangers that police officers are confronted every day with every possible encounter they have. But the MSM, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, AG Eric Holder and President Barack Obama are more concerned with fanning the flames of racism and race baiting, rather than honoring those police officers who protect and serve. You will only hear from an agenda driven media and opportunists about how police officer Darren Wilson assassinated Michael Brown. God forbid they honor individuals like Police Chief Michael Pimentel who had a long career of protecting and serving. I wonder how many people the White House is sending to Michael Pimentel’s funeral?
