I wonder why Huckabee granted this scumbag clemency.
Huckabee is planning on running for President. This could be the end of that idea.

Maybe these four resisted or mentioned the constitution too many times. ...

Well..another genius opens his mouth to let more of the air between his ears escape. Yes, if you call and say my baby's mama's 300 lb boyfriend is on his way here to whip my ass, we WILL try to get there and stop it before it happens. I might add that before you grab your .40 cal make sure you know the law and that you are in the right. Some states have retreat laws and some do not. Please, don't give such advice if you don't know what you are talking about.
You are right about one thing. Most the time our response is after the fact of the crime. We haven't figured it out yet, but for some reason the bank is not robbed when we are standing in lobby. Damn, these crooks are a cleaver bunch. Last but not least, again, if you don't like the way we do our jobs, earn the badge and show us how it's done.

More cops dying. Doesn't have to be murder, do you see the difference? I'm sure he or she would not complain if a bus carrying 20 LEO's went off a cliff, crashed and burned
What a pathetic attempt this is. G let me stretch my imagination.
Stay in context .
Like I said .
You might want to find out when you two can visit.
The this of the statement implies the gunning down of cops .
Felony when called for in an open forum .as in I need ,We need, they need
you need the country need s the world needs my god needs.

I wonder what the reaction would be if a white male shot 3 black male cops and 1 black female cop? Street justice? Standing up to the man? Making a statement against police corruption? It is mind-boggling how some members can condone the cold-blooded murder of 4 police officers (all of whom have a spouse and kids) on the basis that Police as a whole are corrupt criminals.

Pure opinion and I would ask you to NOT denigrate LEO's. You hardly know these officers and we have members that are involved in LE. OK?

I'm pretty sickened by these huge sweeping statements that people seem to think you MUST be a cop hater, or a cop lover. I'm neither. Most of the time I am grateful for the police and the service they do. Sometimes I am not.
But EACH CASE MUST be looked at individually.
This poster Apache. Getting 15+stars for saying good they got what they deserved? With ZERO knowledge on the background of these officers, makes me sick to my stomach.
It's obvious apache has had some bad run ins with the law, and in my experience, haveing spent time in prison, that usually means you've done something wrong most of the time. So it's obvious this guy hates all cops period.
I just wonder how a humans brain can say Good these officers got what they deserved, while haveing ZERO knowledge to the background or facts concerning the reasons this mass killing went down.
Being a cop is not an easy job. All you cop haters would probably be the first to lift a kilo of evidence if you were a cop and had the chance.
There are more good cops out there than bad, that is a fact. Quit listening to the MSM, and watching movies like "Bad Leuitenant" (great movie but pure fiction).
As far as them standing up for one another, thats a normal reaction EVERY human being has when they belong to a group, club, team,military force. There's no way to stop it from happening.
That's why there is Internal Affairs officers, and trust me, they don't follow the police code of silence. Cops for the most part hate them.
You wanna do something about police corruption? Go to the Acadamy, and become an Officer, and do like Frank Serpico did, if you got the balls.
