    Shooting witness describes Vegas police: ‘In a world where everyone’s kneeling, these guys stood up’

    "Speaking with NBC’s “Today” on Monday, Russell Bleck — who attended the festival where the attack happened — told Savannah Guthrie that the actions of local law enforcement was nothing short of admirable.

    “I mean, just, God bless the police officers,” Bleck said. “I mean, in a world where everyone’s kneeling, these guys stood up and took — I mean, they knew what they were against and they ran toward the danger with just handguns. I mean, that’s real bravery right there.”

    Bleck added that “there’s no telling how many [people the police] saved.”

    Bleck told “Today” that in the massacre, police officers and military veterans jumped in immediately to help.

    “You saw a lot of ex-military just jump into gear. I saw guys plugging bullet holes with their fingers,” Bleck said, who was in a VIP tent with his fiancée. He eventually took cover beneath some bleachers.

    “While everyone else was crouching, police officers [were] standing up at targets, just trying to direct people, tell them where to go,” he said. “The amount of bravery I saw there, words can’t describe what it was like.”

    You have yet to understand the conservative thinking, they like fake news.

    Progs will use this incident to push their gun control agenda.

    They will not give police one molecule of credit because it doesn't help further their agenda of division.

    I did not say 'ALL' cops, snowflake:

    "In an atmosphere where cops are being widely demonized..."

    Your attempt to spin / lie / twist my post is - like you - a shameless FAILURE.

    (Hey boilermaker, stop being a 'sheep' following losers like NYC who get called out all the time. Think for yourself.)

    Typical teabagger. This is taken out of context. Listen to entire speech. Not what faux news shows you.

    the first article is wall street journal.

    and you're taking what the OP said WAY out of context so you can get your giggle-shots in.

    No one is demonizing the po-po more than the po-po themselves...Thugs with guns and badges..No difference in a criminal and a cop...One can get away with murder easier than the other...
