A high-ranking Missouri city official made an outrageous comment Thursday night during a Fox News interview. He blamed the shooting of two police officers early that morning on — the police.
He called it a “publicity stunt.”
“I think it was a complete setup,” John Muhammad, city manager of nearby Uplands Park, MO. said. “I think it was a setup between members of the police fraternities, what I like to call it. I think they operate just like the KKK.”
Why would the police set up two fellow police officers? Muhammad had the answer.
“I think they did it to make themselves think they’re the victim, when honestly the victim are black people,” he said. “I think it’s just a publicity stunt. No more than that” he stated. Although, he later clarified that this was solely his position, and not necessarily that of his constituents.”
Earlier that evening he tweeted his intrentions:

His tweet received lots of comments — few of them favorable. Here are some examples:
