Maybe I should clarify, when I said something big I was eluding to the predicted spill over of the Mexican drug war... Since we already have that spill over New Mexico Texas and AZ. I was wondering when it would move deeper into the country... that is the something big I' m waiting to hear about... not civil war part 2

Still why is it news. Police are mostly murderers. So who knows who they upset.

To those who are giving knee-jerk defenses and assuming a mantle of righteousness for these men, do you do the same for their victims?
Do you assume the guy the cops shot was a good person with family and a nice pet who will miss them? Or do you assume he was a scumbag who got what he deserved because they shot him?
But far more good people are shot by cops than good cops are shot by people.

This hits home...I have family in Yelm, not far from this location. It sickens me that so many people on here start to point fingers and make accusations about the police having done an unethical or illegal act to bring this on them. Did it ever occur to the morons mentioned above that these are police; they arrest drug dealers, murder's and gang members..Is it such a stretch to think they did their jobs correctly and some dirt bag took revenge on them for it?
Officer Timothy Brenton, the Seattle cop and father of two killed on Saturday night in Leschi, was probably targeted at random, police say. Assistant Police Chief Jim Pugel called Brenton's murder an "assassination." And sources who spoke to King 5 say that all indications point to a planned attack: the gunmen approached from the rear then backed up after shooting, possibly to avoid being caught on Brenton's dashboard-camera.

Ah another thread filled with ignorance.
Most of you just taking another - any opportunity to bash cops, probably because you've had a ticket, or a run in with the law.

Did it ever occur to you that just maybe they were corrupt and pissed off the wrong people?
Police seized a white pickup truck parked in a nearby parking lot and were preparing to put it on a flatbed truck. Detectives were preparing search warrants for multiple locations, Troyer said.
