St. Louis Police Representative: Protesters Want Dead Cops

By    |   Thursday, 12 Mar 2015 10:38 PM

The shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, just after midnight overnight shows that protesters really won't be satisfied until they have dead police officers, St. Louis Police Officers Association Jeff Roorda told Fox News.

"I kept hearing yesterday the protesters finally got what they wanted, Chief (Tom) Jackson stepped down," Roorda said Thursday on "Fox & Friends."

"They didn’t get what they wanted when Tom stepped down," Roorda said. "They got it late last night when they finally, successfully shot two police officers."

The two officers, one shot in the face, one in the shoulder, were discharged from a hospital later Thursday. They were part of a force guarding the Ferguson Police Department building while protesters were out front.

"Dead cops, that’s what they want," Roorda said. "Let’s not pretend like they wanted Tom Jackson’s resignation or they’re mad because Mayor Knowles is still there. They want dead cops. That was their goal all along and that was their goal last night."

Roorda, a friend of former Ferguson officer Darren Wilson who was not charged in the August shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, also appeared on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File" Thursday night.

"The protesters in the streets were not saying hands up, don't write me a ticket. They were saying hands up don't shoot. That narrative has been rejected by the evidence that came before the grand jury and the evidence that came before the Justice Department," Roorda said.

That was a reference to the Justice Department report that Ferguson police targeting blacks with tickets on trumped-up charges to fill city coffers.
