Has this been on national news????
I’m just shocked that the hill reported on it!!
It would be a story if the poor cop was of minority descent. Other than that ....................it’ll stay in Vegas
That’s so very horrible. I wouldn’t want to live. Pray that he regains function.
Has this been on national news????
nope and neither were the cops killed over the last two weeks.
LAS VEGAS (AP) A prosecutor said Friday a 20-year-old Las Vegas man deliberately shot and gravely wounded a police officer during a Las Vegas Strip protest of the death of a man in police custody in Minneapolis, and said the man fired at least two other shots that night.
Justice of the Peace Melanie Andress-Tobiasson cited her review of police video that hasnt been made public yet in the attempted murder, battery and firearms case against Edgar Samaniego.
Im in Albuquerque. Dont watch the TV news, but it did get reported locally on one of their websites. KRQE.com. The other local news sites dont have the story.
Don't hold your breath.
Comcast, ATT, nor Disney give a damn
Oh no!! Last I heard he had no brain damage and was still on a ventilator but expected to live......this is terrible. Pray this is temporary.....so sad
or a woman
Wouldn’t it be a shame if the thug escaped and disappeared somewhere in the desert.

The democrat controlled media deliberate miss portraying the six foot seven inch 200 plus pound Floyd as an innocent black who was being forceably restrained because he was black not because he was resisting arrest.When He was legitimately arrested for passing a counterfeit $20 dollar bill he was resisting arrest and was a threat if not secured. But the media was not mentioning his size or reporting that Floyd was removed from a squad car because he was acting up under the influence of drugs and also later was discovered to have COVID 19. Which suggests his physical condition may have led to his death which the media turned into a murder change and a charge of serious abuse by police because of police efforts that were tried to get him who under control.

This posting has comments that reveals that both the arresting officer and Floyd knew each other and had worked together in bar security
If Obama had urged blacks to believe in the justice system and comply with the police would we be confronting his use of creating racial division now ?
The results of politically induced miss reporting incidents where blacks have resisted legitimate arrest began to be used earlier during and after the post Zimmmerman trial, then on to the Ferguson episode. Obamas abuse of the Bully Pulpit which seemed to promote resistance to legitimate arrest led to black gangs attacking non blacks found innocently traversing black neighborhoods and to a score of murders or life changing injuries and later attacks of theft and vandalism on local businesses as well as attacks and murders of police officers during that period
Prayers for him.
I really feel badly for police officers wives and kids. As if they don’t worry enough on normal days when their husbands and dads go to work in a hostile enviroment..... they now have to hear and see an onslaught of attacks by the general public.
How horrible. I hope modern medicine can heal him somewhere along the way.
