It seems that when it comes to the recent shooting ambush of two deputies in Compton, heinous and egregious acts and attitudes just keep coming to the fore.
As we previously reported, two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies were ambushed Saturday night, September 12th. They were shot multiple times while they were sitting in their car outside the PAX Metro Station in Compton. One victim is a 24-year-old male, and the other is a 31-year-old female and mother of a 6-year-old.
Both were transported to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition, and they are presently recovering after surgery.
Video shows the unidentified suspect firing, unprovoked, into the vehicle.
Then, as we also reported, protesters gathered outside the hospital, chanting,
“We hope they die.”
Worse yet, protesters attempted to force their way into the hospital.
Now, video has surfaced that shows additional witness and bystander reactions to the evil act perpetrated against the two deputies. LET Unity – It’s being called the “Netflix” of the Emergency Responder and Veteran Community
A video with the Instagram username beno_thegreat shows a grinning man wearing a yellow hoodie, filming immediately on location after the deputies were shot.
“Compton! N**** just aired the police out, n****! They just aired the police out, n****!”
A bystander says:
“This the only justice we’re gonna get.”
The man in the yellow hoodie goes on to say:
“Them n****s just got aired out, cuz. They just bust on them n****s, cuz, that’s crazy.”
Then with a laugh, he adds:
“It goes down in Compton.”
With the camera pointed at the police car where the stricken deputies had been shot, he continues:
“Them n**** on they knees. Deal!”
As he films the deputies struggling next to a column, a bystander yells,
“No justice, no peace.”
The camera turns to the approaching patrol cars, and the man in the yellow hoodie repeats,
“Police just got aired out, n****!
“They just got bust on, n****!
“They just got aired out! They just got aired out, n****!
“It’s going up! Somebody’s bust on they ass!”
More similar proclamations follow as he films the arrival of patrol vehicles.
Then he adds:
“Ohhhhh, ohhhhh, two sheriffs shot in the face, two sheriffs shot in the face, they trippin. It’s going up in Compton. N****s bust on the police.”
The camera turns back on the man in the yellow hoodie, who is smiling broadly.
He gleefully adds:
“N****! They just got aired out!
Still grinning, he laughingly continues:
“Somebody ran up on the corner and bust on they ass, right through the window, in the face and all, n****!”
Additional videos from that fateful day also show despicable attitudes on the part of bystanders.
The video below shows two officers on camera outside the hospital, with bystanders yelling:
“You’re going to f***ing die one by one!”
In another video taken outside the hospital, a bystander is heard laughing and yelling, “Oink oink” at officers.
“F*** the police!”
As if these video reactions weren’t enough, there is an additional social media reaction that warrants notice for its egregiousness.
According to a tweet posted by Fox LA’S Bill Melugin, Lynwood City Manager Joe Ometeotl posted a meme saying, “The Chickens Have Come Home to Roost,” on his Instagram account following the ambush.
From the Twitter screenshot, Ometeotl adds that he does not “condone” the shooting, but then appears to go on the attack against police.
He writes that they are:
“deputy gangs that inflict fear and violence in the community.
“These deputies murdered, framed and stole from the community, just because they could.”
As the officers struggle to heal from their injuries, the shooter remains at large.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has offered a $100,000 reward in the manhunt for the would-be killer.
We can only hope that there will be someone out there with some knowledge of the shooter – someone who is not gleefully celebrating the attempted murder of two officers, but instead is willing to do the right thing.
Here is our previous report on protestors’ attempts to enter the hospital where the two injured deputies were being treated:
LOS ANGELES, CA – In an update regarding the two critically injured deputies that were shot on September 12th, we had reported on aspects related to protesters trying to block the entryway to the hospital emergency entrance where the two deputies were being treated.
However, new reports state that there was more than just people trying to block the entrance to the hospital – but also protesters trying to force their way into the hospital as well.
What their intentions were is not clear, but it certainly couldn’t have been good.
Additional video clips have been shared online, where officers guarding the entryway to the hospital can be seen getting harassed by protesters outside.
More videos have also been shared, showcasing a small group of individuals screaming “fuck the police” outside of the very hospital where the deputies are fighting for their lives.
Others could be heard chanting “it’s a celebration” on the video as well, essentially making reference to the deputies having been shot.
Another video showcased a man referring to the deputies shot as “two of America’s most notorious gang members” as he was making his way up to the hospital.
When the individual attempted to go into the hospital, he was immediately stopped and was informed that no one is allowed inside of the hospital for any type of visitation.
