While I feel for the officers families etc, one has to ask...
Why is this being posted on ATS? This is "run of the mill" local news for some town in the US. Hardly "Breaking alternative news", or even news really, officers get killed all the time...

I love how people get all upset over a cop who gets killed in the line of duty without even knowing or caring what kind of cop it was.
It is an emotional trigger.
We are conditioned to root for the opressors.
Would this upset anyone if it was found out that last week one of these cops tazed an elderly woman?
Or how about a 5 yr old little girl?
These days, ****the odds are**** that these cops were just as much of a scumbag as the guy who shot them.
No sympathy from me.
This does NOT mean I think they deserved it or had it coming to them.
It does NOT mean I hope they die.
cuz we all know someone is going to accuse me of saying or implying that.edit on 19-6-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)edit on 19-6-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
