Opinion |  While responding to a call, which alleged gunshots in the area, Tampa Police were reportedly ‘ambushed.’  One officer was hit in the back of the head with a bottle, and needed to call for back up … a lot of back up.

This is not the first time Tampa has seen ‘protesters’ go crazy in the city.  A few weeks back over 200 ‘protesters’ made off with $100,000 in merchandise during a looting riot in the city. (SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)

Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan said:

“It’s an ambush. I have no other way to describe it. When there are that many people out there and clearly no one had been shot. It was just a setup to get the cops there.”

“There were hundreds of them — hundreds. We ended up having to call every single police officer that was available that night to respond there, from New Tampa to South Tampa.”

There have been some violent acts. People are acting out. They think they can get away with doing whatever they want toward the cops. We’re going to use the necessary force to take people into custody. I think that’s what people need to understand.”

“The police, we always have everyone’s back. Nobody has ours right now and that is what I think is missing here. The cops are not going to lie down. We’re going to go out there and do our job, but we’re being really careful.”
