ThinkProgress LGBT Editor Zack Ford Defends Cop Killings


Zack Ford, an editor for ThinkProgress‘ LGBT section, believes it’s “no surprise” that cops are being killed in retaliation to past incidents.

In a chain of tweets, Ford tried to explain today’s events in Baton Rogue and past police killings. After calling the murders of police officers “retaliation,” he went on to say he “abhors all violence” in the same train of thought. The original tweet is now deleted, but can still be accessed via internet archive services.



As the tweets went on, Ford started to backpedal, perhaps realizing that a line has been crossed. He lamented that “a lot of people think I support murder now.”
