2 Deputies shot Possible Retaliation shooting

Two Los Angles sheriff’s deputies were shot at a metro hub on Saturday night. Video shows a single armed gunman fired on the men as they sat in their patrol car.
A 24-year old man and a 31 year old woman deputy was shot and hospitalized on Saturday night, the two deputies have survived surgery and are expected to survive.
I can’t help but to put the two most recent LA incidents together as the LA Sheriffs department was warned after an unarmed cyclist was killed by the same department.
Dijon Kizzee, 29, was shot more than 20 times in the back after being stopped for breaking a city bicycle code. This is just one of dozens of killings of unarmed Black men in the US. The killing sparked protests in the city who collective expressed fatigue for hearing about senseless killings of Blacks.
In some states daily protest have ensued post the absurd killing of George Floyd in May. And the White House seems to support the behavior of white supremacist.
The Trump administration has made clear white supremacy is alright with them and with the number of non convictions of killers of Black men and women the narrative is slowly changing.
Deputies said that Kizzee had a bundle of clothes and later said he hit one of the officers all the while saying he was armed with a semi-automatic handgun. The story makes no sense for most of my constituents and readers. Why indeed would he hit an officer if he had access to a semi-automatic handgun?
The most recent shooting of the two officers excited the LA County sheriff to say, “it pisses me off!” A $100,000 reward has been made available for any information about the shooting. Sounds like meritorious manumission to me.
Why is it, these hefty rewards never show when a Black man is ended?
