San Antonio Police Chief William McManus says he is angry at those who hate and do not back the police force, reports the San Antonio Express-News. “I’m angry at the police haters, I’m sick of the police haters,” McManus said. “We protect them. We defend them. And they give us a big F U. And I’m sick of it.” His comments came on Saturday, a day after officer Miguel Moreno died from wounds received in a shootout with a man with an extensive criminal history.
A second officer, Julio Cavazos, was wounded in the shootout Thursday while the officers were on patrol near San Antonio College. Cavazos was shot in the chest but will recover Last November, Detective Benjamin Marconi was shot and killed while issuing a traffic citation. His death was the first for the department since 2013.
