There appears to be an increasingly volatile view of American police fomenting around the nation, and Floridians this week were shocked to see just how low anti-cop cretins would go.
After the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, enormous protests popped up in cities around the nation. These demonstrators were demanding change, espousing the belief that the American policing system is inherently corrupt, systemically racist, and in need of either abolition or massive adjustments.
Now, the fervor has grown outwardly violent and vile.
Florida authorities are seeking the individuals who used an interstate overpass to stage a mock lynching with a mannequin in a police uniform and pig mask, according to reports.
Deputies pulled down the mannequin Saturday morning after responding to the overpass on I-95 in Jacksonville for a possible suicide.
And, even more disturbing…
They found “KKK” scrawled on it, KHQ-TV reported. The manequin also had NYPD patches.
Mike Williams, Jacksonville Sheriff, was none too pleased about the incident.
“Both the tactics and props used were a deliberate attempt to exasperate an anti-police sentiment and drive a divide in our community,” he said. “This incident was carried out by people wanting to undermine our dedicated efforts to keep our city safe.”
Hate begets hate, and we can only pray that Americans come to realize this sooner rather than later.
