This should be interesting



Ladies and gentlemen, buckle your seatbelts; this is a special kind of crazy



Angelique Campbell told News 12 in New Jersey, “He should’ve taken more [officers] with him.”


Her husband, Lawrence, was wanted for a previous murder, waited outside a Walgreen’s after taking a security guard’s gun and ambushed and murdered 23 year-old rookie officer Melvin Santiago.

Authorities believe that the ambush may have been for notoriety as Lawrence Campbell allegedly told a bystander to “Watch the TV news later, I’m going to be famous.” The 27 year-old gunman was shot and killed when police responded.

Angelique, however, was not concerned with the needless slaying of a police officer by her criminal husband but was, instead, disturbed that people have focused their sympathies on the murdered officer’s family.

“Sorry for the officer’s family. That’s, you know, whatever,” Campbell told News 12. “But, at the end of the day, [Lawrence] got a family too. All they care about is the officer.”

Campbell made the comments at a makeshift memorial for her dead husband, where friends and families propped up photos and liquor bottle and messages such as “Thugs in Peace.”

“He was a good man. He looked out for everybody on the block,” stated Campbell’s friend, Barbara Jones.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop was outraged by the memorial and the words of the callous widow, saying, “It doesn’t get much lower than this. [The memorial] won’t be there for the duration of the day.”

While there has always existed a criminal element in society, this level of callous disregard for human life is purely nauseating and a symptom of a society led astray. A man who served his community was viciously murdered in cold blood for, apparently, nothing more than a desire to have his name in the paper and the response by his widow speaks to a “me first” ideology that is present in 2 year-olds and remains too prevalent in society

Now to be fair before a few go digging she did apologize.BUT the damage was done when we speak before we think how words can hurt.

The wife of the man accused of fatally shooting Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago (http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2014/07/comprehensive_coverage_jersey_city_police_officer_ shot_slain_during_robbery.html) yesterday said she’s sorry for comments she made that indicated she wished her husband had killed more cops.
Angelique Campbell, 28, of Grant Avenue, said she was angry when she told News 12 that her husband, Lawrence Campbell, “should’ve taken more with him” early Sunday morning. Police say Campbell ambushed them outside the Walgreens at Kennedy Boulevard and Communipaw Avenue, fatally shooting Santiago (http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2014/07/jersey_city_police_officer_fatally_shot_in_line_of _duty.html) before officers returned fire and killed him.
“I want to apologize to the officer’s family and to anyone else who got hurt or is suffering for these actions,” she said in her second-floor apartment.
She added: “No matter what Lala did, I’m going to love him ‘til the day I die.”
“Lala” was her husband’s nickname, she said.
Sitting on her couch while the couple’s six-year-old daughter sat in the next room watching a Nickelodeon cartoon, Campbell said she was shocked to hear that her husband was involved in the Sunday morning incident, which Mayor Steve Fulop has described as an ambush.
She said she and her husband met the night she graduated from Lincoln High School in 2004. She acknowledged his repeated run-ins with the law – state records show he had three prior drug convictions – but said she thought his last exit from prison, in January, was the start of a new life for him.
Once they married in February, though, she saw a “change in him,” said Campbell, who wore a t-shirt with a cartoon peach and the words, "Peach and Love."
“He got hooked back up with the wrong people,” she said, adding that she only saw him twice a week.
City officials allege that Campbell lay in wait for police early Sunday morning as they reported to Walgreens on the report of an armed robbery. Once Santiago arrived with his partner, Campbell opened fire, killing Santiago, a rookie on the force.
Officers on the scene returned fire, killing Campbell.

How did my name get in this? I didn't say anything one way or the other about either of these guys except that I feel bad for their kids having to grow up without their father. On the cool people die every day some even die at work through no fault of their own. It's sad but you don't hear a big hoopla about a construction worker dying on the job. It's a cold hard fact but that's how the cycle of life goes.

I'm a bit confused by the comment about other people dying on the job and not being a big hoopla. I hadn't heard of this story until now so I don't see any sort of Hoopla. Personally defining hoopla by amount of media attention. Whether or not there's a hoopla I think a story about a murder will be more of a story than an accidental death on the job. Plus the main story in this case is the callousness of the guys widow. I get her point of saying there's a side of loss for her too, but to say something like he should have killed more is just cold. From that statement I wonder if she even goes as far as blaming the police for what actions her husband took in ambushing them.

I really didn't know a person could be this blatantly ignorant and still be able to produce a sentence. You should call Ripley's. This is amazing.

We want you to realize cops are real people and that when you post things about cops dying it's incredibly ignorant.

Just as ignorant as calling for construction workers to die because they're construction workers. That's what you do with cops and it's ignorant and disgusting.

I think what some may be missing is that a lot of blacks, especially in the inner city, have grown up with the idea that cops are after them, for no good reason.

These kids have grown up, had kids of their own, taught the same message, and this continues for generations.

I believe that there are some reasons to think this, but where the real fault lies, I am unsure. When I look at inner city living, look at UER, look at the judicial system and the penal system, things are way out of whack.

This is no excuse, just, perhaps, part of the reason some think this way.

I would think any grown person could look at the stats and see the cops, in general, are not after blacks nor hate blacks. But, that is easy for me to say, when I am not the one in that situation.

You're the one that made the bold statement that conversatives don't care about Black people. So I asked you what Obama has done for you since you voted for him. 90+ % of African Americans voted for him.

So what has he done for you?


Romney has never done anything for me.

Bush built up the military and kept me and hundred of thousands of others gainfully employed and made us men by allowing up to serve this country. That's what serving in the military does for most young Americans. They make you into strong, hard working adults.

Veg, I know it's tempting, but don't get drawn into a Rep vs Dem argument here. There are a thousand other threads to go through that again. This is about police and the ignorance of those who want them dead for their profession.

TV Reporter Suspended After Rant About Fatherless ‘Young Black Men’
"News 12 reporter Sean Bergin made a controversial statement about “young black men” on TV Monday and now he has reportedly been suspended.The regional News 12 Networks, which serve New York and New Jersey, ran a story (above) about Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago, who was fatally wounded (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/07/13/cops-jersey-city-police-officer-shot-dead-during-armed-robbery/) in a shootout at a Jersey City Walgreens on Sunday. The network interviewed angry residents in the segment, many of whom weren't very sensitive to the police officer's death.
“We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a cop killer,” Bergin said. “It's understandable. We decided to air it because it's important to shine a light on this anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America's inner cities.”
Then Bergin began editorializing.
“This same sick, perverse line of thinking is evident from Jersey City to Newark and Patterson to Trenton. It has made the police officer's job impossible, and it has got to stop. The underlying cause for all of this, of course, young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject,” he added."

I strongly agree with this statement. Good cops "protecting" bad cops has contributed greatly to a very bad situation, but how is advocating killing all cops any type of civilized solution?

I support the death penalty for all pedophiles, but does killing all the priests seem rational? How about killing everyone in the British parliament because they hid a historic pedophile ring? Maybe we should off everyone in Hollywood because it is an open secret that homosexual men abuse young teens in exchange for roles in their movies?
