Charlottesville Cops Flee the Scene

When the going gets tough, the cops take off running.

When I got out of my car yesterday in Charlottesville about 10:30 in the morning you knew this was a bad scene and bad things were going to be happening because people were congregating at Lee Park and Emancipation Park wearing helmets, body armor, carrying big heavy sticks. Nobody was intent on peace here from either side. People were intent on causing havoc and causing damage. And even as wounded were being brought out of the park police were sitting idly by. I was standing off a cordoned off area where the police had set up as a staging area, the state police, and they said you can come in here this is a safe area. But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.”  --Doug McKelvey/Fox News quoted at Gateway

The violent ones--nazis or "resistance"--should have been hauled off to slammer and someone should have 'lost their paperwork' for about 5 days or so.  The driver of the car will get what he deserves, I hope, and it won't be pretty, either.

The cop who called off the cops?  He should join the car's driver.  Don't give us all that crapola about "putting my life on the line" any more, either.
