Is it me, or has there been an increase in shootings and ambushes of police this year? Just two weeks ago, a city cop and his rookie partner were ambushed a few miles from where we live, and there was that ambush of two Vegas cops at a pizza shop. Last month a guy walked into an LA Precinct and opened fire. I am sure there are more local stories like the one in a city near us not making national attention. I was wondering what could be behind this "open season"on cops? So what are your views as to why? One has to only see and hear about things like this to understand why our cops are more jumpy, and quick to pull the trigger in threatening situations. I know I'd be more frosty with these ambushes, and shootings of fellow law enforcement personnel. This may not be terrorism so to speak, but it is domestic terrorism nonetheless!
