Meagan Good and Stacey Dash have had very different reactions to the tragic shootings of two New York officers.
Having grown up with a father in law enforcement, Meagan was heartbroken to hear about the deaths of Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu yesterday. Instead of siding with those infuriated by police brutality or blindly supporting cops, Meagan simply mourned the loss of two men indiscriminately gunned down just for choosing to be NYPD officers. She posted the picture to Instagram, writing:

(Two police officers sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn were shot at point-blank range and killed on Saturday afternoon by Ismaaiyl Brinsley. The suspect then committed suicide with the same gun, the authorities said. Mr. Brinsley is also believed to have shot his former girlfriend near Baltimore before traveling to Brooklyn) This is mind blowing to me .. This is not the answer .. This actually makes things worse! These poor men had their lives taken from them …and each of these men had families who loved them .. One of them had a 13-year-old son .. This just breaks my heart .. My father has been in law enforcement for 26 years .. This could of been my family simply because the uniform he's worn and his commitment to serve and protect… Not one group of any kind is the enemy .. Each person stands alone before God for their own sins .. This isn't right .. A eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind… My prayers are with the families of Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
This served as a great reminder that not all cops should be held responsible for the actions of a few.
Stacey Dash, on the other hand has decided that compassion for the victims was the wrong reaction, opting instead to blame Al Sharpton and New York Mayor Bill deBlasio for the attack. She also called the shootings “jihad” against officers before she casually suggested rioting in the streets.

We’re going to assume that she hasn’t heard about cops (and some of their supporters) taking to the streets in shirts with the phrase “I Can Breathe” printed across their chests as if they’re completely oblivious to the fact that it mocks some of the last words uttered by Eric Garner, who was choked to death by an NYPD cop.
Stacey’s really breaking her back to earn that FOX News check. We can’t even process all of the ignorance in her tweets.
