I struggle to even use tragic story for the selfish reason of supporting my position.

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
Two innocent people who died simply because they chose to devote their lives to the safety and well being of others deserve better. Their grieving family and loved ones deserve better. Something seems wrong with me using this story for an example, but something seems worse about me ignoring it.
Often, when a murder takes place, the question of why the crime was committed, adds to the pain and grief of the living. We don’t have that here. Everyone knows why this crime happened.
It happened because the media mindlessly gave attention to people who were only interested in getting attention.
It happened because people who due to their positions, should have acted responsibly and respected our judicial system, but did not.
It happened because media personalities attempted to downplay the seriousness of violent actions that were only one or two levels of evil, below killing.
It happened because the media is not only biased, they are outright liars.
It happened because athletes sided with violent thugs instead of the police and our justice system.
It happened because celebrities sided with violent thugs instead of the police and our justice system.
It happened because community organizers are really just self promoters,
and it happened because we had a president who encouraged all of these people to "Stay the course."
This wasn’t revenge, this wasn’t an eye for an eye. This was murder. Even the most ardent supporters of the “justice” for Michael Brown/Eric Garner protesters, cannot claim that the cops just snuck up and executed either one of them.
Even though none of the people I mentioned above pulled the trigger on those two New York cops, they are definitely responsible for getting (and keeping) this ball rolling, and it’s not going to stop here. We haven’t seen the last of this, and the blood is on their hands.
Now watch, as the cowardly leftists scramble to distance themselves from the evil that grew out of the seeds they have sown.
