Wow, there are two protests in Utah today, in Salt Lake and in Ogden. Protesters in SLC scaled the wall around SLPD headquarters. Words cannot express how radical this behavior is in Utah.
I saw signs with the letters ACAB, which stands for All Cops Are Bad.
I'm from the '60s and went to my fair share of anti-war protests in SoCal but this ACAB angle sets my teeth on edge.
An officer was killed (and another was wounded) in Ogden two days ago while responding to a domestic violence call.
Local boy, 24 years old, 15 months on the job, two days short of his fifth wedding anniversary, father of two, second generation LEO, his brother is a code enforcement officer, described as someone whose default expression was a big smile.
Your car is stolen, you hear a prowler, your child goes missing, you're in a traffic accident - your husband is threatening to kill you - who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters? Pffftt.
The people who made those signs might just as well go to the cemetery after the funeral and piss on Officer Nate Lyday's fresh grave.
