You know how some people on the left like to generalize and say that “all cops are bastards” or that “all cops are bad?” Well, it could confidently be said that in video posted below, all the people involved in it are bad EXCEPT the police officer.

A North Carolina police officer was recently savagely beaten by a man who was subject to arrest. Jamel Alphonso Rogers was eventually arrested and charged with “assault with a deadly weapon with intention to kill while inflicting serious injuries, kidnapping, and two counts of resisting a public officer,” according to the Washington Examiner.

The beating of 27-year-old Rowland Police Department officer Michael Sale was caught on a Facebook Live video in which the onlookers not only didn’t do anything to aid the officer, but laughed and encouraged the beating to continue.

Take a look (Warning: Graphic Violence):

Sick. You know how there are videos that restore your faith in humanity? Yeah, this wasn’t one of those videos.

Rogers reportedly went before a judge on Monday, where his bail was set at $500,000.

That’s too low. If someone is willing to take out a police officer, who knows what other type of threat they pose to the general public.

As Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said in a Facebook post, this type of attack on officers doesn’t help communities become safer environments.

A community won’t feel safe with their own law enforcement officers being attacked such as this. In saying this, we will not stand by and allow the criminal element regardless of your race, creed, nationality and so on to wreak havoc in our county. We try so hard to bring our county’s reputation out of the gutter and a few people such as seen here can turn it upside down. Law Enforcement is here to protect and serve. We aren’t the enemy. But we will be seeking out the enemy in the days ahead.

 

Robeson County residents, I don’t want you to hear about the assault on the Rowland Police Officer that occurred early...
