As people have been murdered in the riots that have swept the nation in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in police custody there is plenty of blame.
And a former adviser to President Donald Trump, Sebastian Gorka, is placing the blame squarely on former President Obama and current Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“This is on the Democrats,” Gorka, who is a military and intelligence specialist, said in a tweet issuing blame for the riots and killings.
“From @JoeBiden to @BarackObama to @HillaryClinton to @AOC. God Bless Officer Underwood’s Soul and give his Loved Ones Strength.
Gorka shared a photo with his tweet of Patrick Underwood, a black law enforcement officer killed in the riots, as reported by KRON4 News.
“he Federal Protective Service officer who died Friday night after suffering from a gunshot wound in #Oakland amid protests has been identified as 53-year-old Patrick Underwood of Pinole, according to a family member,” KRON said.
A Federal Protective Service officer died Friday night after suffering from a gunshot wound in Oakland amid protests, according to authorities.
The man has been identified as 53-year-old Patrick Underwood of Pinole, according to a family member.
The family provided a picture of Underwood to KRON4. They plan to hold a news conference to discuss the shooting on Monday.
A second officer was also injured in the shooting and is currently in critical condition, the FBI said.
U.S. authorities say the killing of the officer who was watching over a protest in Oakland was an act of domestic terrorism.
Authorities did not name a suspect and did not say whether the shooter had anything to do with the protest.
Around 9:45 p.m., authorities say a gunman in a vehicle pulled up to the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building located, at 1301 Clay Street in Oakland, and began shooting at the officers.
The two officers were watching over a demonstration at the time of the shooting, the FBI said.
California Sen. Dianne Feinstein issued a press release on the shooting but still pussyfooted with not going too hard on the rioters.
“Last night’s shooting of two security guards in Oakland again showed what an inflammatory and difficult period we’re in,” she said.
“We have to know right from wrong and not use the terrible tragedy in Minneapolis to perpetrate more violence. There’s never an excuse to shoot and kill a security guard, destroy businesses or injure innocent people.
“Every effort must be taken to apprehend and prosecute those who use deadly violence. People must have the right to peacefully and safely protest in Oakland and across the country,” she said.
Democrat California Gov. Gavin Newsom also spoke on the shooting of Underwood.
“This is a moment of pain for our state and nation. We are also mourning the tragic loss of a federal security officer and wounding of another in Oakland. Jennifer and I send our sincere condolences to their families, friends and colleagues,” he said.
“No one should rush to conflate this heinous act with the protests last night. A federal investigation is underway, and we should let that process play out,” he said.
On Sunday President Trump declared Antifa, who many believe are responsible for the anarchy taking place, as a terrorist organization.
