On any given day, such violence against police officers would be disturbing. But the fatalities capped a particularly violent 24 hours in the United States for the men and women in blue. Eleven police officers were shot. news.blogs.cnn.com...
"It's not a fluke," said Richard Roberts, spokesman for the International Union of Police Associations. "There's a perception among officers in the field that there’s a war on cops going on."

That's very sad more life's ruined for no reason, condolences to the family's.
I find it extremely odd that only two LEO's and one Marshall would show up to arrest a known (very lrg) felon for aggravated batt. This guy has been arrested for sexual assault, kidnapping, grand theft, etc.... spent 18 yrs behind bars, is a registered sex offender and you show up with two cops and a Marshall? I don't want to take anything away from the loss of life or start ANY sort of political ##, please. I just find this some what ignorant on the part of the Police Dept.. My town would have had a swat team and a lot of backup on this guy if they knew they were going to arrest someone with a record like him. Anyone else see some thing wrong with this picture? Please, let's keep it civil, innocent lifes have been lost.

I was suggesting a grenade to take him out, they had a bulldozer.
I'm watching the footage now and they used a bulldozer to rip the roof open and get him.
