Apparently, narcotics are a 'no'.

So sad.

I could see doing that for a crime that would lead them to victimize others, but narcotics? Willing participants … victimless crime.

You shouldn't kick down doors for just that, IMHO

Do you think theft of other's property goes on to pay for drug use.

While I don't think our strategy for tackling the problems that arise from drugs and their black market trade is working at all...you can't expect that there will be no consequences for breaking the law. They didn't show up at 4am and no knock barge in. They notified the occupants verbally as well as turning on lights and sirens to ensure it was known they had a warrant and were indeed police. These 2 guys who according to some weren't hurting anyone who didn't want it decided to open fire multiple times on the officers. So you think the guys willing to have a gun fight with cops serving a warrant drew the line at politely selling their heroin.

They would never sell poorly cut drugs which result in over dose deaths...or use violence to ensure they collect what their owed or take over an area or customer base. See that's the thing people who are against the "war on drugs" like to gloss over is that to make it in the black market trade you break a lot more laws than selling the drugs. Making them legal only takes away that venue the people involved will find another market to exploit. They are not going to turn into nice guys and keep politely selling their heroin.

I bet there are cases where theft of other's property goes on to pay bills. We should outlaw bills!
And food, don't forget to outlaw food

Indeed, however cops don't get shot raiding places for alcohol because it's a legal drug, why should government get to dictate which drugs are legal and allowed to be consumed at a private residence .

The war on drugs is a disaster and this tragedy should never have happened.

I'm thinking there were some poorly implemented arrest tactics involved. Sounds like the cops may have been ambushed as they entered the property. If the bad guys took out almost a third of the arresting squad of 18 someone f'd up. I'm sure we'll learn more soon. I hope the two officers in critical condition make it.

I assume letting the suspects know you're coming in will do it. If they are determined to fight and they have the element of surprise it wouldn't be hard. Not always easy to know when to no knock at 4am or when to storm with swat and flashbacks to take away that element of surprise. I think its sad all the way around but heroin dealers are not typically good people so I sure don't feel bad for them.

I dont disagree there, I think people should have the right to make their own decisions about how they "medicate".......

However until that day comes, its still illegal no matter how much we want it to be different........

What was the warrant for? I will base that on whether to mourn or not.


Let me guess, if it was a gun siezure warrant then grieving won't be necessary?

Victimless crime? Seriously? Tell that to the knife scar on my leg from the meth-head that decided I'd make a good pin cushion...and started with an Arkansas Toothpick.

Stupid reporters.

One class act announced that the neighbors had tipped the police off to what was happening in that Trap House.
Now, not only 4 cops are shot, but there potentially will be contracts on the people living in the surrounding houses.

I assume poor planning & bad intelligence. It was probably some political hack that ordered them to go without enough information on what they were walking into. Either that or they were tipped off by someone in the department.

Rhogena Nicholas, 58, and Dennis Tuttle, 59, were identified as the two suspects that were killed.

Acevedo said the first officer that went through the door had a shotgun and was immediately charged by a large pit bull.

The officer shot the dog and killed it. At the same time, Tuttle came from around the back and opened fire with a .357 Magnum revolver, hitting the first officer in the shoulder.

That's when Nicholas reached over the officer and started making a move for his shotgun.

Back-up officers fired at Nicholas, hitting her.

Acevedo says the officer who breached the door first is 54 years old. This was the third time in his career that he had been shot.
