(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden issued a weak statement that still refused to condemn Antifa and Black Lives Matter even after radical left-wing protesters chanted “We hope they die” outside a hospital where two LA police officers were rushed to after an attack.
Footage released on Sunday showed a suspect walking up to a police vehicle and shooting to Los Angeles County Sheriff deputies in the head. Both police officers, one man and one woman, were rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery and are in critical condition. Protesters, after learning about the incident and finding out where the officers were taken, blocked the entrance of the nearby Los Angeles hospital and chanted anti-police slogans and expressed their hope that the two people die.
Biden’s response was not to condemn the anti-police rhetoric pushed by BLM or even to walk back his claims that the police force in the United States is systemically racist, but to weakly condemn “all violence.”
“This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice,” he said. “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

All violence? What about the violence committed against police officers while Democrats continue to put targets on their backs?
Biden has repeatedly echoed claims that American police officers are racist, perhaps most notably in June when he told CBS that racism is not just prevalent in the police force but across society generally. When asked if he believes there is “systemic racism in law enforcement,” Biden responded, “Absolutely.”
“But it’s not just in law enforcement, it’s across the board. It’s in housing, it’s in education, and it’s in everything we do. It’s real,” he added.
Sounds like Biden thinks a lot of American voters are racist.
Following the shooting, President Donald Trump made his views on the matter clear, suggesting that the suspect should face a quick death penalty trial once caught and if the two police officers die.
If they die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this! https://t.co/K3sKh28GjX

As of Sunday evening the suspect is still at large and a $100k reward has been put on the table for people with information that will lead to the suspect’s arrest.
