BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- A Michigan State Police trooper was shot in Benton Harbor Wednesday morning. The trooper was shot in the arm during a traffic stop around 4 a.m. He got out of his car to investigate an accident. A suspect fled on foot, but was reportedly taken into custody.
The trooper is currently in an area hospital being treated for an injury that is described as not life-threatening. State Police Lt. Michael Risko said he's "pretty sure it has nothing to do with the incident" last week. Risko is referring to two nights of riots in the southwestern Michigan city. People set vacant buildings and cars on fire after a man died last Monday. He crashed his motorcycle during a high-speed police chase.

God must love irony to put two such events together and show us what our country really looks like.
black people can riot when a black person is hurt by a cop but when cops are shot by black people its no big deal.
What a PC ruined country we are.

How did the cop hurt the black guy? By watching him
drive into a wall?

You're right. He did nothing wrong yet these vermin get to riot over nothing and the elitists in our country run around excusing them and feeling sorry for them.
These incidents reveal the truth - that many perhaps most inner city blacks have no respect for the law.

Huh, While watching the news, I saw a woman return to the smouldering ruins of what once had been her home.
I guess if they report "vacant buildings " were burned, that it's not all that bad?
