BLM Rioters Block Entrance to LA Hospital Emergency Room Treating Two Victims
After two Black Lives Matter rioters walked up to a Police vehicle and shot two Sheriffs inside, more BLM members were seen yelling obscenities and blocking the entrance to the emergency room.
"To the protesters blocking the entrance [and] exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling 'We hope they die' referring to 2 LA Sheriff's ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES [AND] EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People's lives are at stake when ambulances can't get through," the LA County Sheriff's Department wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.
LA County sheriffs held a press conference with the details.
A local faith leader who was at the hospital told a KABC reporter that the protesters tried to get into the emergency room.
"They were saying 'Death to the police' and 'Kill the police,' and these are sheriffs, but the message is still the same. They were using all types of curse words and derogatory terms," he told KABC. "Unacceptable behavior, because a hospital should be a sanctuary."
Video shows BLM arguing with hospital security.
"That's why you're dying one by one, you stupid f---s," a man can be heard saying. "Y'all gonna die one by one. This ain't gonna stop."
"You're next with the f------ hot pocket," a man shouted.
"I want to deliver a message to the family of the [inaudible]: I hope they f------ die," a man yelled.
Law enforcement arrested one man and one woman, who was later identified as a member of the press, amid the protests.
The victims are two deputies. One 24-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman, were both in critical condition and “fighting for their lives” as they underwent surgery following the attack, which occurred around 7 p.m. local time outside a Metro rail station in Compton, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
"Moments ago, 2 of our Sheriff Deputies were shot in Compton and were transported to a local hospital," the department tweeted. "They are both still fighting for their lives, so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers."
President Trump responded to the video of the shooting last night.
