We’ve never heard of independent reporter Joshua Albert, but we have to admit he got our attention with his reporting on the police who took down a mass shooter at a synagogue in Pittsburgh Saturday morning: they were just doing their jobs, so stop celebrating them, and besides, they’re to blame.
Can we stop gushing over law enforcement every damn time they stop a conservative extremist terrorist/mass shooter? For starters, they are simply doing their job. Secondly, and more importantly, cops are why we have Trump in the first fucking place. Blood is on their hands.

But what about the cops who were shot? Any ounce of sympathy there?
Maybe if police unions hadn’t have endorsed Trump he wouldn’t have won, and maybe then there wouldn’t have been such a rise in @GOP sanctioned anti-semitism and bigotry, and then just maybe they wouldn’t have been shot? Just a thought! https://t.co/nijO4DyEVh

So … cops voted for Trump, who then inspired conservative extremists to shoot up synagogues and send mail bombs, so in effect, it’s the cops’ fault for setting the ball rolling?
We’re pretty sure we know why Albert is “independent” — we don’t think even Vox or Salon would take on this clown.
And this d-bag is verified. https://t.co/pYdzo7wmCu

Shooter was anti Trump,not conservative, probably part of your #AngryDemocratMob

First, shooter was conservative? Can you point me toward supporting evidence? Second, what do you propose- eliminate law enforcement? Anarchy? I honestly am interested to hear what should replace law enforcement. Thx in advance.

I don’t understand the line you are trying to draw. Law enforcement officials are here to protect citizens. I guarantee if someone were to attack you, you’d want a cop to help you. Please stop trying to verbally abuse men and women who’d lay down their lives for you.

Law enforcement running towards gunfire, ‘simply doing their job,’ according to this guy.
Another keyboard warrior who would wet himself if he was shot at.

The reason I gush about the police is that they will protect you too if you need it.

Hated for the police is just one more way the left is filled with hate.
— Evan Sayet (@EvanSayet) October 27, 2018
Actually, law enforcement has been around since the birth of our country. And yes we must thank them over and over again because they are the only thing protecting us from anarchy. And the only anarchy I've seen has been coming from the Left.

Four cops were shot stopping this guy. Getting shot isn’t their job. It’s a risk of their job. There is an enormous difference. Divisive morons like you, not cops, are why Trump got elected.

What a complete idiot and sad human being you must be. Yes, police officers are "simply doing their job." Thank God they are and that we have such fine men and women who are willing to risk their lives for us everyday.
— Mike Kernan (@Marinefox27) October 27, 2018
Sure we can stop "gushing" over LE, because as you so accurately point out we are "simply doing our job."
We didn't ask for the positive or negative attention!
We in LE have just one request from you in return. . . quit blaming LE for all your issues! #CarryOn

Let me ask you something, where were you when shots were being fired? Behind a keyboard? Don't you dare to put down the men and women of #LawEnforcement. Yes, it's our job, but doesn't mean we don't care about people

Just call us when you need us. We will still respond. It’s what we do. Hopefully you won’t be gushing.

If you are one of Joshua's friends, you really need to go check up on him. He's obviously in distress. If I knew his address I'd call the authorities myself for them to do a wellness check. Step up and be a friend.
