One in the face and the other in the shoulder and they are in serious, but not life threatening condition. I'm watching the news, but they're not really giving any more than that right now, just repeating the same details.

Going to be interesting seeing the way this develops!
Considering the report that just came out that was quite damning about the institutional rasicsm plagueing this departmement and that the police chief just stepped down as well as other public officials, I find this to be quite the suspicious timing and a way to drum up support for the police.
The chief, Thomas Jackson, who took over the Ferguson Police Department five years ago, becomes the latest high-ranking city official to fall in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report that accused the city of using its municipal court and police force as moneymaking tools that routinely violated constitutional rights and disproportionately targeted blacks. The municipal judge and city manager, as well as the top court clerk and two police supervisors, have stepped down in the wake of the report’s release last week

I hate to say it but and eye for an eye...
This is what the TPTB wanted. Releasing that report just riled the people up even more
NOW their going for blood and think they are in the right.. It is a dangerous thing.
The people their think now they have to spill blood to change the system..
Are they right? They could be. Maybe not
screw the police in general

Protesting the resignation, which I thought is something those protesting wanted. A grassy knoll? the deck needs a reshuffling.
My money is on an idiot as a shooter.

I will say it too you as well. When you shoot someone who doesn't want to be shot it is called murder. No amount of fancy word manipulation will justify the act.
