Deputies issued a dispersal order for the “unlawful assembly” of the protesters for blocking the hospital’s emergency entrance and exits, the sheriff’s department said. Two people were arrested, including someone later determined to be a member of the media.“A male adult protester refused to comply and cooperate,” the department said in a statement. “During his arrest, a struggle ensued at which time a female adult ran towards the deputies, ignored repeated commands to stay back as they struggled with the male and interfered with the arrest.”The deputies, who had graduated from the academy 14-months earlier, were able to radio for help. Both underwent surgery on Saturday.President Donald Trump, the “law and order” candidate, retweeted the video of the incident, writing: “Animals that must be hit hard!” Trump will visit L.A. tomorrow for an update and to visit the officers.If they die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this! https://t.co/K3sKh28GjX— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 13, 2020 The two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were gravely injured when an unidentified gunman fired multiple shots into their patrol car as seen in the graphic surveillance video. The incident took place on Saturday night when the officers – a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man – boarded their car near a metro rail station in the city about 7pm (02:00 GMT). A video posted to the sheriff department’s Twitter account showed a figure approach the vehicle and open fire through the passenger side window of the car and run away.To add insult to injury, protesters gathered outside the emergency room where the deputies were being treated and according to LASDHQ, members of the group blocked the entrance and the exit and chanted “we hope they die.”Both were hospitalized in critical condition at St. Francis Medical Center. Villanueva’s press conference at the hospital a few hours later drew more protests.The sheriff’s department tweeted: “To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling ‘We hope they die’ referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.”To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling “We hope they die” referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Despite grabbing an early lead, Syracuse saw its season end Wednesday afternoon in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.The 12th-seeded Orange (8-13, 3-11 ACC) nearly rallied back to win after dropping the doubles point, but fell 4-3 to 13th-seeded Louisville (12-15, 2-10) in Cary, North Carolina.“Today was a little bit more emotional than other days,” head coach Younes Limam said. “… It’s a little bit sad to see and to realize that it was our three seniors’ last match.”Louisville’s doubles tandem of Chloe Willetts and Ariana Rodriguez topped SU’s Valeria Salazar and Komal Safdar, 8-6, while Elle Stokes and Olivia Boesing beat Breanna Bachini and Nicole Mitchell by the same score to secure the doubles point for the Cardinals.Syracuse quickly tied the match when No. 1 singles player Amanda Rodgers made quick work of Stokes, 6-0, 6-3.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Amanda played great tennis from start to finish,” Limam said. “She played on her terms.”In the only other match that didn’t go the full three sets, Safdar disposed of Rodriguez at fifth singles, 6-4, 6-3, giving the Orange a 2-1 lead. And when Rhiann Newborn won her match at third singles, 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, it looked as if SU was in control.But things started to go downhill when Salazar lost her match at second singles. After winning the first set, she relinquished the lead, falling 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 to Manuela Velasquez.Louisville then evened the match as Boesing outlasted Bachini at fourth singles, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, leaving Syracuse’s fate in the hands of Mitchell at sixth singles.Mitchell dropped the first set but rebounded to win the second set, 6-2. She led the third set, 5-4, before dropping the last three games to lose, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5.“This was the first time that Nicole found herself in that position and it’s not a position that is easy to manage,” Limam said. “You’re a freshman and you’re playing to clinch the match. There were a lot of nerves, but I’m very proud of how Nicole handled the situation.”With Mitchell’s loss, SU’s season was over.The Orange will return four of its seven players for the 2015-16 season: Mitchell, Newborn, Salazar and Olivia Messineo. It will lose Bachini, Rodgers and Safdar, all of whom are graduating this spring. Comments Published on April 22, 2015 at 5:07 pm Contact Michael: firstname.lastname@example.org
