NO UNIFORM SAFE: Firefighter wounded in station house DRIVE-BY shooting [Video]
It would seem it is open season out there on those brave warriors wearing uniforms and who serve the American public. Cowards and radicals are now shooting at firefighters – one was wounded in Florida while they were filling up their trucks. An officer was just shot in Florida by craven thugs – he died Sunday morning. These people are first-responders who go out risking their lives every day to save others and this is the thanks they get. If this keeps up and gets worse, there will come a day when people call for help and it won’t just be delayed, it won’t come. Agitators are turning our cities into war zones at the behest of race hustlers like Al Sharpton and his pals Barack Obama and Eric Holder. Mayors like Red Bill de Blasio are siding with the radicals and criminals against their own police forces – it’s a ticking time bomb.
From BizPac Review:
A firefighter in north Florida was struck in the arm Tuesday evening when his fire station came under fire in a drive-by shooting.
About a half-dozen firefighters were outside of Station 28 in the Jacksonville area gassing up vehicles when a car drove by and opened fire, said Lt. Jackson Short of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, according to WJAX-TV.
One of the firefighters was grazed in the arm by a ricocheting bullet, but the wound was considered minor and did not require stitches, according to Short.
Despite law enforcement across the country being on high alert because of the murder of two New York City police officers, and a Florida officer being killed a day later while responding to a call, Short said there was no reason to connect Tuesday’s incident specifically to the other shootings, WJAX-TV reported.
However, he said the firefighters were likely targeted because they were in uniform and in a well-lit area.
WJAX-TV reported that Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Chief Ivan Mote went further, saying the drive-by could be a copycat from the previous shootings.
“We’re concerned about the safety of our firefighters,” Mote said. “Of course our job is to protect people from incidents such as this, so first and foremost, we want to make sure our crews are safe.”
Jacksonville’s mayor released a statement calling the drive-by shooting a “cowardly attack.”
“I am outraged by cowardly attacks on our brave first responders,” Mayor Alvin Brown said in the statement. “These attacks will not be tolerated.”
By random acts of cowardice, all of us are put at risk. The blood of our very finest is being spilled and will our corrupt leaders denounce it? No… they relish the violence and chaos. It furthers their Marxist agenda. The police and firefighters will protect themselves and they should. As our leaders let this violence and racial animosity spiral out of control, the good people of America will not stand idly by. They are courting a civil upheaval of epic proportions. Be very careful what you wish for. It is my opinion that Americans are not lambs to the slaughter and will not see their finest gunned down without repercussions.
