Police officers are coming under attacks around the country — including two shootings in Los Angeles in 24 hours.
While the president vacations in Hawaii, reports from coast to coast are being called in on law enforcement officers being shot at by thugs in their police cars or killed responding to disturbances.
Where is President Obama? Where is the attention to these incidents like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown or Eric Garner. Where are the TV press conferences? Where is the leadership?
In past 24 hours, police assassination attempts in Tampa, Durham and Los Angeles. Presidential leadership would be nice right about now.
