An Illinois police officer was shot and killed Tuesday, sparking a massive manhunt for two suspects, one black and one white.
The officer was shot near an old cement plant in Fox Lake, Ill., and police are searching the area with canines and helicopters for the suspects and a woman who may have also been involved.

“Rollins Road between Washington Avenue and Route 59 is closed and all area schools are on lockdown,” WGN reported. “Service on the Milwaukee District North Line is also shut down in both directions.”
This shooting comes only days after a Harris Co., Texas, deputy sheriff was executed while pumping gas and not even a week after black radicals called for “lynching whites and killing cops.”
And let’s not forget the two N.Y. police officers who were executed last year while sitting in their patrol car.
Is the murder of the Illinois police officer another violent result of the Black Lives Matter movement which promotes the killing of cops and encourages more racial division across the country?
“I think very fair in light of the anti-cop rhetoric that is sweeping the United States of America, fueled by this group, some of the vulgar, vile, vicious rhetoric coming out talking about killing cops,” Milwaukee Co. Sheriff David Clarke told CNN. That’s some of the nice stuff… some of the stuff I can’t even say here on TV.”
“But there’s no doubt in my mind that the two N.Y. officers, [Rafael] Ramos and [Wenjian] Liu, were gunned down by an individual who made Facebook postings about wanting to kill pigs and he was going to go out and hunt officers down.”
Sheriff Clarke warned it’s now “open season” on police and blamed President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder for supporting “activists” who have advocated violence against any and all cops.
These provocateurs, however, will only give local police the excuse to transform into small armies, leading to even more violent confrontations between law enforcement and BLM activists which is then broadcast to the entire nation through exhaustive news coverage.
This unfortunately programs the population into accepting not only the militarization of the police, but also a vast expansion of government powers offered to supposedly stop the violence which in reality only eliminate individual liberties.
