Eric Shawn: Another police ambush impacts the presidential campaign

Josh Kraushaar on how President Trump and Joe Biden are addressing the attacks on law enforcement.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden called the shooting of two sheriff's deputies in Los Angeles "unconscionable" while President Trump called for a "fast trial" with the possibility of the death penalty on Sunday.

"This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice," Biden wrote on Twitter after the Saturday shooting. "Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished. Jill and I are keeping the deputies and their loved ones in our hearts and praying for a full recovery."

The officers were being treated at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, Calif., the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Will Biden condemn his party's overheated rhetoric which is inspiring and facilitating the violence? Hell no.

I don't disagree with imposing the death penalty if one or both of the deputies die.  But it's a state matter, not a federal one.

Among the "special circumstances" in which the death penalty can be the sentence under CA law is the murder of a police officer. It sounds like both officers will survive, so we won't learn whether the LA County DA has the guts to seek the death penalty. FWIW, when Kammy was the DA of SF County she at least once refused to seek the death penalty for the murder of a police officer.
