District Attorney Mike Ramos Speaks Out in Support of Law Enforcement and Corrects Jon Stewart of the Daily Show

On Monday, December 1, 2014, Jon Stewart of The Daily Show incorrectly stated that officers shot Dante Parker—using this local incident to fuel the #Ferguson debate. Hear District Attorney Ramos’ response to Mr. Stewart, as well as his thoughts on the brave men and women who risk their lives every day to protect our communities.


  1. Cops should know that this is a dangerous job they are signed up for. There will be felonies committed against cops, it comes with the job. There should never be a felony committed against the community. Nor should the community be in fear of the police. Police should rely on their training and protocols to properly do their job. We love 'good' police and don't condone crimes against the police but police should not be policing out of 'false fears'

    1. Yes, danger does exist and officers are certainly aware of it prior to taking their oath, but it still doesn't justify crimes being committed against them. The culture of the criminal justice system has at times failed to treat law enforcement officer victims with the consideration and attention they deserve. Thank you for your comments.
