While much of America mourns the loss of Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth, there is an evil element in the country who not only celebrate the officer’s assassination, but are going so far as to mock his death.
Even before the husband and father of two has been laid to rest, someone has been stenciling emojis of a gun pointed at the head of a police officer in a number of locations in the Houston area, ABC13 reported.

It doesn’t get more despicable than that.
“I can’t believe that there are people out there so heartless and so ruthless to put something on there before this deputy is even buried,” Houston Police Department union head Ray Hunt told ABC13. “It does nothing to help morale in the police department and does nothing to help the Goforth family.”
The reaction on social media shows more than one user looking to the increasingly violent Black Lives Matter hate group for playing some role in the sick act.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@KatMcKinley That’s disgusting.

Sick! I’d be willing to bet the scum that did this are either affiliated with BLM or influenced by the cop hating racists! @KatMcKinley

@KatMcKinley How precious. Find the graffiti vandal and throw his/her ass in jail. Forever.

@KatMcKinley Anyone advocating murder is soulless, so I won’t bother praying for them.

@TwitchyTeam This is disgusting. Why would the police want to stick their necks out anymore? What would we have without police? Anarchy
