Cop gunned down in New Mexico during traffic stop … and there were no riots

A New Mexico police officer was killed Friday during a traffic stop after a passenger got out of a vehicle he had just pulled over and shot the officer in the neck.

Officer Jose Chavez, 33, is the latest law enforcement officer to be gunned down in surge of cop killings across America this year. That he was a husband and father to two children only makes the tragedy that much worse.

Yet, there were no riots in the streets.

Meanwhile, residents in Milwaukee burned and looted their town after a cop killed a 23-year-old black man who refused to drop a gun loaded with 23 rounds that he held in his hand as he turned to face the officer after fleeing a traffic stop.

Talk about having one’s priorities mixed up.

Fortunately, the gunman in New Mexico was arrested along with two other suspects involved, KVIA-TV reported.

According to Doña Ana County Sheriff’s investigators, the officer was shot by Jesse Hanes, who is also a suspect in the killing of a 62-year-old man in Ohio, according to the ABC affiliate.

Another officer arrived just as Chavez was hit and a high-speed chase ensued, resulting in another man being shot by the thugs while carjacking his vehicle at a nearby rest stop.
