The incident led one BPD officer to post the following on their Facebook page: "There hasn't been a day in my nearly 20 year career where I could say that I hated my job, until July 4th, 2021. Even after the day I was shot at in 2007, I still loved my job. I have never witnessed the things I saw last night, until July 4th, 2021. My fellow officers had fireworks shot directly at us, fireworks were thrown underneath our vehicles, several of us were hit with fireworks. That black spot on my cheek is an injury from being hit in the face with a firework. People were laughing at us and telling us they hoped people would keep doing what they were doing. I have never seen such evil, until July 4th, 2021. I still can't believe the amount of disrespect we saw tonight and not just towards us, but towards humankind. There were infants and children in the crowds while fireworks were being shot in our direction, they did not care. The amount of trash that littered the streets was unbelievable, they did not care. No respect for their neighbors or neighborhood, they did not care. It is actually quite sad the things I saw tonight. I have never hated my job until July 4th, 2021."

Disgraceful and despicable. Community leaders should be condemning this type of behavior, and city leadership (DA) should come down sternly and swiftly on all involved. Set the tone now. Do not tolerate these types of behaviors.

We all know why this is happening. Certain groups in this country are pushing the anti-police narrative either for money, or power, or votes. Some for all of those reasons and then some.

God bless the police. Defend, don't defund.

Drove down MLK after lunch yesterday and it looked like a dumpster full of fireworks was scattered on the streets. Pure filth. The map view on snapchat was full of videos that show exactly what was described above.

I didn't even need to click on the link to see what the trash who did this despicable thing looked like. Then I clicked on the link and my suspicions were confirmed.

Human garbage.

From Republican Party of Brazos County release this morning,
Quote:

This wasn't just an assault on police officers; it was an assault on progress. The city of Bryan and other local government bodies has emphasized community policing. Their respective law enforcement agencies have made it a point to be a part of their patrol communities. The city officials we elected have been change agents in this regard. They took action to develop these programs long before today's culture war on law and order.

Every person responsible needs to be charged with a felony and prosecuted to the full extent.

WTAW is replaying this morning's interview with the BPD chief, after their 5:30 news.

Social media posts by members of the crowd was littered with "we were victims".

I don't want to assume but wondering if you might be rethinking your "BCS doesn't have an anti-police climate" comment made on the shooting thread a few days ago?

A friend asked me today what we could do to fix this, things like this incident. I didn't have an answer. Law enforcement locally does community policing, they try to build bridges but then something like this happens and it makes me wonder (and worry) about where we are headed.

Since I don't have an answer I'll ask that until we do, please say a prayer for my brothers and sisters in law enforcement as you lay down tonight and sleep safely in your bed. I know I will.

The comments on Rusty Surette's Bookface feed were no bueno.

Apparently, some folks think it's okay to shoot fireworks at police officers in Bryan,

The TLIAC, while I didn't make the police climate comment, I do believe that we generally have respect for the police and many are outright pro-police. But even if only 1% are anti-police that's about 2,300, 5% is nearly 12,000. That still sucks, but not generally anti-police.

It's frustrating when even 40-50 people who are anti get together and wreak havoc like the other night. They can cause a lot of problems for the good guys. Hopefully that stays minimized because I'm not aware of that kind of event happening too much around here.

Of course, I'll defer to your knowledge and experience on this.

Nope.

There are going to be criminals no matter where you live. This area is not overrun with crime and most people know that good law enforcement is needed. I know a lot of law enforcement in this area and most them will say that this is a good community. Even last summer.

Some do.

Most of the comments are people that are angry about what happened.

The problem isn't the disrespect for police, but rather a general disrespect for authority and order. When you have no nuclear family or are not held accountable for your actions by those who love you, or the social surrogate (public education system), this is what happens.

Maybe the pro law enforcement citizens need to be as loud as the anti-police groups. I know many really good LEO's that wish they had other career options.

I remember after the 5 Dallas officers were shot I was in my patrol car in line at a local fast food restaurant. When I got to the window someone had paid for my meal. That was so nice but what seriously brought me to tears was the note they had give to the cashier to give to me. It simply said "God Bless You, we love our Blue." Public support means more than citizens can ever imagine.

I waited through the whole first segment of news last night at 10 after seeing a friend share the officers post yesterday morning and seeing it on KBTX's webpage. They couldn't be bothered with talking about it in the top stories of the day, so I shut it off.

So tired of their slant. If a patrol car so much as rolled over a pinky toe, KBTX and Rusty would be all over the story of officers assaulting a crowd that just wanted to celebrate the 4th. I shouldn't be surprised anymore but it's still annoying.

The biggest thing is to run the socialist instigators out of town. This BS is giving them the power they crave all while gas lighting that they're on our side. Vote them out starting local. School boards, city councils, etc. Just as bad is the local media. Do not support them in any way.

So what do we do? Call and hound the mayor? Local leadership needs to speak out NOW! It starts small and grows, take out the garbage.

How do we get more vocal? I live near and officer and we chat sometimes. His comment was, "it's like the fabric of society isn't being ripped and we don't know what to do."

Why are police wasting resources with "community policing" when it obviously doesn't make a difference? The people these programs are aimed at helping are going to hate police either way. People are going to hate police as long as the tv tells them they should, why not have every cop possible out putting these people in jail?

Honestly no idea how this works, but I say we spread the word to flood the DAs office demanding they prosecute.

Again, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I've watched enough of this crap and no way I'll sit by and let it spill over into my town without a fight of some sort.

Well that is depressing

ETA: I'm calling tomorrow no matter what to voice my opinion. If I'm the only one, fine, I'll be vocal so at least I tried. If Parsons is garbage then let's go that route. We need representatives who will do something. I'll admit I haven't done much, but I'll start.
