Anti-Police Rhetoric Led to Brutal Showdown in Tacoma | Opinion

Tacoma, Wash., police officer’s patrol vehicle was surrounded by a mob of spectators gathering to watch illegal street racing over the weekend. The incident ended with the officer driving through the crowd to protect himself.

Multiple videos shared on social media show one man being run over. The images are brutal and graphic. It’s a miracle he’s still alive.

This entire incident could have been avoided if we had more voices condemning the increasingly hateful, threatening and dehumanizing anti-police rhetoric spewed by activists and politicians with wanton abandon.

When we legitimize a movement that treats police as an enemy to be confronted, it should not come as a shock that people will feel empowered to do just that. The result is a group of mostly young imbeciles stupid enough to swarm and threaten a police vehicle.

Don’t expect these confrontations to end well. A conflict between a car and a pedestrian will always favor the driver.

Police were called to the scene this past Saturday night after roughly 100 people and several cars blocked an intersection to watch drivers run doughnuts and burnouts. The Pacific Northwest has seen a rash of these events in the last several weeks. They’ve been dangerous, as evidenced by dramatic video shot in Seattle showing a spin out hitting spectators.

The moment an officer pulled into the Tacoma crowd, the group swarmed his vehicle. They pounded on the hood and the windows of the SUV, shaking it.
