Dang, "viral" is a really low bar for these people.

"wait until you can't find a police officer"

You have to "wait" anyway. Texas is not New York City where police are just walking around on the street. You have to call them, and depending on their abstract interpretation of how severe the situation is you will have to wait anywhere from 10 minutes up to an hour (or more.) That is assuming you can get to a phone. If you are being attacked there won't be any police around to help you anyway, and it will probably be over by time they get there. Most of what police do is deal with the aftermath of a crime or accident, very little crime is stopped by police while it is happening. The people who still think positively about, and praise, police are the people (or their families) that have not been violated by the police in some way yet, and I do emphasise YET.

We are waiting for all Police to stop shooting to kill. Stop shooting unarmed black people. We're waiting.
