Perhaps the toughest job anyone can have within this racially charged and political environment is that of a police officer, in that a split moment of hesitation can get you maimed, and sadly in this instance “killed”.

Police officer and Iraq war veteran Sean Bolton was senselessly gunned down when he approached an illegally parked 2002 Mercedes-Benz, and passenger Tremaine Wilbourn, 29 suddenly open fired on the officer, fatally wounding him.

Wilbourn who was on supervised release following a bank robbery conviction, and the driver both ran off, leaving the wounded officer near death on the side of the road.

Perhaps the term “supervised release” is a relative term in light of the murder and should be immediately investigated for allowing a convicted felon free to walk the streets.

It seems that a week doesn’t go by without another police officer being attacked and or assaulted, and we seem to have reached a dangerous tipping point where thugs like Willbourn are embolden to attack and kill a police officer for 1.7 grams of marijuana, that in all probably wouldn't have even warranted a trip to jail,

“When you look at this individual, you're looking at a coward," Memphis Director of Police Services Toney Armstrong said as he held up a picture of Wilbourn. "He's a coward. You gun down; you murder a police officer for literally less than 2 grams of marijuana."
