Police Detective Benjamin Marconi, RIP
A Texas detective was shot and killed while writing a traffic ticket outside of police headquarters late Sunday morning. Later Sunday, two other officers were wounded in incidents in Florida and Missouri.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus identified the slain officer as 20-year veteran Detective Benjamin Marconi, 50. He said the suspect has not yet been apprehended, and a motive is not known.
McManus said Marconi had pulled over a car for a traffic violation outside Public Safety Headquarters in downtown. While Marconi was inside his squad car writing a ticket, a black vehicle pulled up behind him and the driver got out, walked up to the detective’s window and shot him in the head, McManus said. Then the suspect reached into the window and shot Marconi a second time, he said.
“This type of crime cannot and will not be tolerated. I ask for the community’s thoughtfulness and patience as the investigation continues and SAPD searches for the suspect,” she said.
McManus said the suspect is a black male around 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall in height, wearing a gray sweatshirt and black baggy pants. The suspect also has a beard, KENS reported.
San Antonio police released an image of the vehicle that was seen leaving the scene, as well as a person of interest who they said may have information in the shooting.
Crime Stoppers in San Antonio is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest of the suspect.
UPDATE II: Four police officers shot in US cities.
How did we get to a point in the United States where such a thing could happen. There was a time in this country where randomly shooting a police officer would be considered unheard of, and it was not all that long ago.
One policeman was shot dead and three others shot and wounded in four US cities on Sunday, coinciding with an epidemic of racially-tinged gun violence involving law enforcement.
Police were shot in San Antonio, Texas, Sanibel, Florida, and in the Missouri cities of St. Louis and Gladstone, local police departments said.
There was no known connection between the shootings.
In San Antonio, authorities were hunting for a suspect who fatally shot 20-year service veteran Detective Benjamin Marconi twice in the head after being pulled over in traffic in front of police department headquarters.
A police officer in Sanibel, on the picturesque island of the same name off the Florida coast, was shot and wounded during a “routine” traffic stop, officials said.
The suspect, who has been arrested, drove by and shot the officer after he had stopped another driver, Sanibel Police Chief Bill Tomlinson was quoted as saying.
In St. Louis, a suspect shot a police sergeant through his rolled up window as he sat in a marked police car in slow traffic.
In western Missouri, another police officer was shot in Gladstone but was expected to live, the Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police said on Twitter. The condition of the suspect was unknown.

HATE CRIME: 37 Year Old Lakeem Keon Scott, Tennessee Shooter Targeted White Victims, Similar to Dallas Police Ambush
More shootings inspired by Black Lives Matters … NOTE TO LORETTA LYNCH AND THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE … THIS WOULD BE A HATE CRIME.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has released the name of the individual responsible behind Thursday morning’s shooting in Bristol, TN that claimed the life of an area newspaper carrier and injured three others, including a local police officer. The TBI stated that 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott “acted alone” and was armed with at least two weapons. Preliminary finding show that Lakeem Keon Scott targeted people and officers after being troubled by recent events involving black people and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country. Yes, Lakeem Keon Scott was black and the victims that were targeted were white. You do the math.
Hmm, where are the Black Lives Matters folks, where’s Barack Obama’s outrage, where is Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton and where is Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the DOJ’s “Hate Crime” unit? Hey America, aren’t you so happy and proud you elected Barack Obama to two terms in office so he could bridge the divide between the races? But this is what you get when you elect a community agitator who is an ideologue and not a leader.

25 Year Old Army Reservist Micah Xavier Johnson ID’d as Shooter Who Murdered 5 Police Officers at Dallas “Black Lives Matters” Protest … Suspect Elimanated by Bomb Carrying Robot
COP KILLER IDENTIFIED … BLACK MAN STATED HE WANTED TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY WHITE OFFICERS.
25 year old Army Reservist Micah Xavier Johnson has been identified as the individual who murdered 5 police officers Thursday night during the “Black Lives Matter’s” protest in Dallas, Texas. Yes, he was black. The suspect stated that he was upset about Black Lives Matter and that he was upset about the recent police shootings of black suspects. Also, he said he was upset at white people. The suspect, Micah Johnson, stated to law enforcement prior to his demise, that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers. Isn’t that special. I guess this sick SOB was not upset about black on black crime. The suspect claims he acted alone, however, three suspect were taken into custody following the shooting. Thankfully, law enforcement put an end to this man’s killings forever, as they blew him up to smithereens with the aid of a bomb carrying robot.
So the suspect wanted to kill white people, so is this a hate crime?
Sorry, a cop killer does not get his face posted, but the device that killed him does.
The man who shot 12 police officers, killing five, at a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Dallas on Thursday night has been named as Micah Xavier Johnson, a 25-year-old Army reservist with no criminal history or ties to terror groups.
Johnson, from Mesquite, Texas, a 20-minute drive from Dallas, reportedly told law enforcement that he was a veteran, and claimed to have acted alone, countering initial reports that as many as four gunmen were involved in the massacre.
‘The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter. He said he was upset about the recent police shootings of black suspects. He said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,’ Dallas Police Chief David Brown revealed at a 7.30am press conference.
Cops cornered Johnson at El Centro College at around 11pm on Thursday and attempted to negotiate, but four hours later the talks failed and a robot was brought in to detonate a bomb and kill the suspect. This was after shots had rung out at a previously peaceful protest in downtown Dallas with demonstrators screaming and running for their lives as cops dropped dead one by one.
Johnson wore body armor, which would suggest why a cop was not able to kill him when he confronted him in a one-on-one situation which was caught on camera. It resulted in the cop being executed. He also carried an AR-15 assault rifle and a handgun, and several rounds of ammunition.
During a search of his home, detectives found bomb making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics.
A black SUV found at the scene of the shootings was listed as registered to Delphene Johnson, also of Mesquite, who is understood to be his mother. Police gathered at the address of Ms Johnson on Friday and were seen searching the property.
The casualties include Dallas police officers Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens and Michael J. Smith, as well as DART Officer Brent Thompson.

Colorado ACLU Board Member: Shoot Trump Voters ‘Before Election Day’ … From the LIB who Called Trump a Hate Speech Felon
JUST CURIOUS, HOW DO YOU THINK THE MSM WOULD REACT IF DONALD TRUMP OR ANY REPUBLICAN MADE SUCH A COMMENT?
Isn’t it the unhinged, lunatic LEFT that is against guns and gun violence? Hmm, then why would Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, call for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman? Where is the liberal tolerance? Where’s the love? Better than that, this moron calls Trump a hate speech felon and yet is calling for people to shoot people in the process, seriously? Who’s the felon?
Isn’t the liberal left double standard of intolerance remarkable? These are the folks that rail about free speech, yet they look to prevent Donald Trump from having his. Then this is the same bunch that look to take the guns away from law abiding citizens while they make threats of gun violence and call for voters to be shot. Unreal and SICK!
Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman.
Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page:
The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.
Just curious, how is one allowed to make such a threat like this and a call for violence? Sorry, this goes beyond free speech.
