The officer shot was patrolling alone in his police cruiser when he conducted a "business check" at the Ferguson Community Center
In the aftermath of the shooting, county police officials gave differing accounts of what led up to it, saying at one point that it involved two suspects who spontaneously ran from the officer's squad car.
Belmar told reporters the officer was very close to two suspects when one turned on him with a gun. He said the officer blocked the gun with his arm and then was shot.
Police later said the account of two suspects was incorrect.

And how are you certain that these people are not just making time and sacrificing in other areas?
Maybe some quit or took leave from their current job to stand up to something that affected them directly.
You say you don't have time to be doing what they are doing, but who knows if this was happening to you in your home town/community that you would be singing the same tune.

Maybe Eric Frein has finally come out of hiding. No wonder the Pa state police couldn't find him, he was in Missouri.
Seriously, the rumors abdout three cops being shot and a 4 year old being shot belong on the rumor heap along with Michael Brown had his hands up and was surrendering. Unconfirmed unsubstantiated wild rumors that had no basis in fact.
I did hear though that Ferguson named a high school after Attorney General Eric Holder for all he did to help investigate the Michael Brown case. Unfortunately, it was looted and burned down last night.

Twitter was a massive rumor mill last night. A suspect shot a police officer while in the act of a crime, turned into a cop shot a 3-4 year old while returning fire, but this isn't true, and the protesters flipped out, but still they didn't respond violently.
