Obama silent on police murder
The unconscionable ambush assassination of Houston Deputy Darren Goforth this week continues the war waged by murderous gangsters against police throughout the nation (“Suspect in ambush of Houston-area deputy due in court,” Web, Aug. 31). This war is a result of the counterculture revolution of the 1960s, intensified by riots and perpetuated by gangster rappers such as Tupac Shakur, that incited the execution of cops. It has been exacerbated by President Obama’s former Attorney Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. and the Rev. Al Sharpton, whose actions against local and state law enforcement failed to condemn the escalating black-againstblack gang murders.
I know this from 41 years of service in law enforcement and the criminal-justice system, beginning in 1960. I am deeply concerned for the safety of my friends, family, community, state and country. Indeed, since the 2008 presidential election, prior to which Mr. Obama promised to fundamentally transform America, our president has pushed our already damaged nation further and further down a social, political and economic road to ruin. He seeks a legacy at all costs.
Sadly, America has been deeply infected by the socialist cancer of the far left. The miseducation of our students by indoctrination has robbed our next generations of a real education. The current administration continues to move to severely weaken our national security even as we face the global spread of terrorism. Our future looks desperately grim.
Hopefully the American people will wake up and the silent majority will find its voice prior to next year’s presidential election. It must do so for our survival and in order to return America to its true roots.
Mr. Obama spoke out against the murder late last year of two New York Police Department officers, but he has yet to condemn Deputy Goforth’s assassination. The silence is deafening. God bless Deputy Goforth’s family and memory. We must not let his tragic death and all the others be forgotten.
