Can't say I disagree. Something needs to change with LE killing people without cause, excessive force, etc.
Ambushing cops is not going to effect that change.

This is why cops are on edge, enough is enough.
let me get this straight... you think that it may be the cops fault. And you think that citizens can act as judge jury and executioner for cops.

Until I know something about the cop involved (Did he smoke dope? Was his family on welfare? Did he have a single mom?) I won't be able to finalize a position because all of that stuff is SOOO important to measure the worth of a human.
Without the smartypantness, this cop may have been killed for CAUSE. How about we look into his record to see if he was sorta scummy or was he a paragon of police virtue? You know giving out tickets for O/T paqy, soliciting for the Policemans' Benevolent Association, getting sex from hookers-you know because cops are so virtuous.
All we know is that a dude was killed without apparent inducement.
As to a cop being sliced down from behind, why would you confront him face to face? Because you are significantly stupid? the guy is carrying weapons and is likely trained to use them. You adored American Sniper. Who did he face off with? His shadow?
