DEVELOPING: Police confirmed that three US Marshals were shot Tuesday in St. Louis, Mo. stltoday.com reported.
The officers were shot when trying to make an arrest entering a house in 3100 block of Osage Street in St. Louis.
Two of the Marshals were taken to St. Louis University Hospital, while the third was taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Police said a suspect was also shot and they now have a siege, or hostage situation at the property.
Again, more dead cops/law enforcement. What is the problem here? I am beginning to think that a lot of training and practice has gone out the door and the good old cowboy days of policing are coming back-thus causing/aiding in a lot of the police violence incidents occurring.

(KMOV)-- A U.S. Marshal is reportedly dead, and another Marshal and St. Louis police officer are injured after a shooting in south St. Louis.
Sannita Boles said her brother was the man shot by police. She said her three children, 8, 13 and 15, were staying with her brother and his girlfriend at the home.
Police and the marshals waited for the children to leave the home this morning, then headed into the home to arrest her brother, Boles said. She said she didn't know why, but that her brother had been in and out of jail.
She identified her brother as Carlos Boles. Court records show he pleaded guilty to multiple charges of burglary, armed criminal action and assault in December.

It is a sign of the times, and I do not intend to imply that this is a good thing.
But this is what happens when people have been pushed and pushed until they are in a corner. When things get to the point that they are things like this is bound to happen. People are angry and they do not know who to be angry towards, so, it becomes the first person to cross their path that they feel are infringing on them.
