BLM activist and consultant on "cultural competency" to LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, Kevin Wharton Price called for activists to celebrate the ambush shooting of two sheriffs deputies over the weekend.
Fox News' Tucker Carlson exposed that Price called the shootings of Los Angeles Sheriffs Department deputies "a good start." He called for the shootings to be celebrated. "We're supposed to celebrate today, because an oppressor has been slain," Price said.
"If this is the start of retribution, then I think this is a very good start," he said of the ambush shooting of a young mother and her patrol partner.
This particular shooting involves two Los Angeles Sheriffs Department deputies, one of them 31-year-old mother Claudia Apolinar. Apolinar was a librarian who only last year graduated from the police academy.
They were sitting in their patrol car when a lone suspect ran up, pulled out a weapon and shot both officers multiple times at close range.
Both officers were rushed to hospital, where they were directly met with protests. BLM members tried to break into the hospital, and when that failed, they blocked the entrances.
As of this writing, Apolinar is still in critical condition and her 24-year-old partner is in serious but stable condition.
Wharton Price is part of an activist group that has met with Eric Garcetti, the mayor of Los Angeles, on many occasions, on issues related to race relations and similar.
The suspect in the shooting remains at large, and anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to please come forward to local authorities.
