With the American left setting the tone, demonizing law enforcement has taken on a world-wide flare — though police do not always help their cause.
An example of this was seen in Mexico when a police officer was set on fire — no pun intended.
A terrifying video is making the rounds of a protester coming up behind a motorcycle cop blocking the roadway and pouring a liquid on him, before setting him ablaze.
The officer jumps off his motorcycle, desperately trying to extinguish the flames while other officers jump in to help — stunningly, a few protesters appear to attack the cop as he fights for his life.

Violent clashes with law enforcement have been seen in Mexico over the death of a man taken into custody for reportedly not wearing a face mask amid the pandemic — police allegedly beat the man, according to the Daily Mail.
The incident above took place in Guadalajara, the nation’s second-largest city.
Three members of the local police department involved in the man’s death have been arrested, to include the police chief, the Daily Mail reported. There are reports that an authority figure in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Gov. Enrique Alfaro, disputed that the man was taken into custody over a mask.
While there’s a major difference between law enforcement in Mexico and in the U.S., protests across America following the death of George Floyd, which was marked by an image of an officer with his knee on the deceased man’s neck, has largely succeeded in establishing a false narrative that race-based police brutality is rampant.
Recent statistics show that the emotion-based belief is simply not true, and events in America this past week is more a testament to the liberal media and the institutional left than it is to racial justice.
Either way, police have come under fire across America. In New York City, an officer was run down by a car and sent to the hospital in serious condition. Another NYPD officer was stabbed in the neck Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood, in what officials described as an unprovoked attack.
In St. Louis, four officers were shot, and a cop in Jacksonville, Fla., was stabbed in the neck, as well.
The liberal media, which has gone from aiding and abetting the Trump resistance to being the resistance, eagerly reports on every indiscretion by law enforcement during the current crisis, but do not show the same enthusiasm in reporting on officers being shot and stabbed.
In fact, they are more apt to report in police attacking journalists, who seem to think they are exempt from curfew laws and social distancing rules.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the horrific story from Twitter:
