Help President Trump Stop Joe Biden [ACT NOW]

A mob laughed and cheered as a North Carolina police officer was savagely beaten in an attack broadcast live on Facebook. It’s the second time in less than a year the officer has been attacked by a mob videotaping its assault to share on social media.

Rowland, N.C. police officer Michael Sale was responding to a report of a disturbance just after 1:00 a.m. when he attempted to arrest the suspect, Jamel Alphonso Rogers.

Sale was the only officer in the area and could not wait for backup from Robeson County sheriff’s deputies.

That’s when Rogers pounced and began bashing in the officer’s face.

A mob quickly formed, cheering on the assault.

As Sale asked someone in the crowd to help him, at least one person pulled out their phone and began broadcasting the attack live on Facebook.

“Let him whoop his ass! Let him whoop his ass!,”one man yells, urging to crowd to let the beating continue.

“Don’t you let that man take you to f–king jail!” another man yells.

Deputies from neighboring Dillon County eventually arrived. Sale was airlifted to the UNC Medical Center and treated for a broken facial bone.

Rogers was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intention to kill while inflicting serious injuries, kidnapping, and two counts of resisting a public officer.

Sale was also attacked by a mob in December. Sale was working for the nearby Maxton Police Department when a mob swarmed him outside a department store. Sale was brutally attacked in that assault, as well.

Once again, the crowd taped its attack and shared it on social media.

Police officials pointed out how the Left’s anti-police rhetoric once again fueled mob violence.

“This is the harsh reality that law enforcement in America is facing right now where some think it’s okay to Defund the Police, Assault the Police and actually laugh and video the event while it’s occurring while at the same time encouraging the suspect to continue to fight the officer even after the officer has lost his weapon and is obviously disabled,” said Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins.

This is appalling!! When will the police just start shooting these criminals? These terrorists need to rounded up and either executed or deported to any communist country. There is no reason for the police to be treated this way. Since these terrorists are using social media to live broadcast their acts of terrorism, there is no need for a trial. Time for public executions again.

Get ready. Either be ready to fight or obey II Chronicles 7:14. You would have better luck if you turn your life over to God.
