Two more police officers were murdered by rioters in Mississippi over the weekend. The number of law-enforcement officer killed by thugs keeps adding up.

Those who attack the police with hurtful and accusatory rhetoric must bear most the of the responsibility for the deaths of officers at the hands of thugs. President Obama, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, former Attorney General Eric Holder, current Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Baltimore Chief Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby and others blame the police for the actions of black criminals who resist arrest and run away from the police.

Soon experienced officers will retire from their forces; young officers will quit and do something else for a living, and it will be quite difficult to recruit new officers. Criminals are killing more than police officers. Because police officers are the most visible government representatives, they are attacking the government. This is anarchy, pure and simple. Is this what racial agitators want?
