During the Obama presidency, which gave birth to the myth that all members of law enforcement are racist, the ambush-style shootings of police officers became commonplace. The worst of these assassinations took place in Dallas in 2016 when black snipers opened fire on officers assigned to keep the peace, ironically, at a Black Lives Matter rally. Five officers were killed and seven were wounded in what has since been hailed as deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement since the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Sadly, it appears that those bad old days are back. Last night two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies were shot by a lone gunman as they sat in their patrol cars. They were transported to an area hospital where they cling to their lives.

After reports of the shootings went public, a group of Black Lives Matter protesters marched to the hospital where the two officers are being treated to offer their bad wishes. You read right. As a spokesman for the group explains in the video that follows:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

We are out here at St. Francis Hospital where two of America’s most notorious gang members have been brought to. We’re going to go up and just check on these murderers right here and see what’s up.

From there the statement goes downhill, devolving into profanity and a confrontation with a handful of mostly black officers whom the narrator brands as “pigs.”

As one Twitter user notes:

This is what it’s come to.
