Just hours after two New York City police officers were assassinated, allegedly in an act of retaliation against police brutality, authorities in Florida say that a similar killing has just happened there.
Early Sunday morning, a Tarpon Springs police officer was shot “execution style.”
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has released a statement. They say that they will be holding a press conference shortly.
From what we know so far from the Sheriff’s Officer, the shooting occurred around 3 a.m.
They have confirmed to Counter Current News, that they have a suspect in custody.
While the police claim that this was an “assassination,” some are suggesting that they are trying to incite fear, riding the paranoia surrounding the New York killings.
Local WTSP says that “police were originally called out for a noise ordinance complaint as the suspect was banging on residential doors.”
Was this a set up to get the police out there so they could be assassinated? Perhaps. But it’s also possible that the police are manipulating us so that they can call for more power and less oversight. At this point, it’s too early to tell. But one thing is for sure, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is claiming that this is a similar act to what just happened in Brooklyn, New York Saturday.
