The recent killing of Greensboro police officer Philip Nix at a Sheetz convenience store is still fresh in our minds. The crime scene was at Sandy Ridge Rd. near Colfax, but it technically occurred within Greensboro city limits.
After the incident occurred, there was some official reaction:
Gov. Roy Cooper said in a Twitter post Saturday that he had spoken with Thompson.
“Our prayers are with the Greensboro police and family and loved ones,” Cooper said. “Every effort must be made to apprehend those responsible and bring justice in this tragic situation.”
“I am angry, and I am sad. I think those are feelings that are felt throughout this department and throughout this city.”
State Attorney General Josh Stein:
My heart goes out to the family and colleagues of the Greensboro police officer who was murdered this afternoon. Please join me in praying for them and for the immediate capture of the killers. We owe so much to law enforcement who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
It is all very interesting.
With the BLM/ George Floyd protests nearly four years ago, Cooper was seen marching with protesters with his mask hanging from his ear. He participated in a massive anti-police protest.
Nancy Vaughan has been working to undermine police for years. Her police department leadership was directing officers to hand water bottles to protesters during the George Floyd riots.
Josh Stein took a passive approach toward enforcing the law when the George Floyd riots arose. He also acted in a passive fashion when historical monuments were being attacked, thus encouraging more disorder. Color revolutions flare when key leaders allow them to flare.
When the socialists act in a hypocritical fashion, that is not really news. It is, instead, the norm. Brazen hypocrisy to make it appear one cares when an officer dies– when in fact you have been acting in a manner that drags down law enforcement and the police– is much more serious. And that is the reality we have.
The young killer was from Winston-Salem; and this murder occurred on the edge of Greensboro’s city limits. Leaders who refuse to prevent crime helped cause this type of instance to occur.
